Mein Plan für Berlin

During our trip, I would like to go to the Kinemathek museum. The Permanent Exhibition shows film history. From the beginnings of cinema, how it changed under National Socialism to contemporary film. The exhibition is also about Marlene Dietrich who is a film icon from Berlin and had national and international success. Have a look at the website which shows the permanent exhibition but also new once like Between Film and Art. Storyboards from Hitchcock to Spielberg. (the website is also in english)

Also other exhibitions could be interesting at the Martin-Gropius-Bau. W. Eugene Smith and Ai Weiwei in New York are on in November.

I'm interested in the Wall museum.

Germany has a great café and bar scene. Many cafés and bars in the district Prenzlauer Berg like Gorki Park (one of the oldest cafés in Berlin) are always a good address to go for a break.  The special thing about Gorki Park is that it offers russian brunch and dishes.

A good bar is the 8mm bar

Great concert and party venues are White Trash and Magnet Club.

For shopping I might go to the shirt shop Who Killed Bambi Eberswalder Straße 26. And a good Vintage shop just opposite - Stiefkombinat, Eberswalder Str. 21.

I will research more about Art exhibitions and what else is on in November.

Vintage Shops

It looks like there's lots of vintage shopping to be had in Berlin. Unfortunately all the flea markets seem to be on Saturdays and Sundays when we're not there - we'll just have to hit the shops instead....... my next plan is to get a map so I can start plotting where they all are!
