If you live in Berlin for any matter of time you come to realise that the saying that ´there is always something happening´ is very true.
Any given week there are a host of events on weekdays and even more at the weekend. It results in the situation that you have to sometimes make a difficult choice of what event to attend when you have a number of options that you like.
For those visiting Berlin it´s possible to time your trip to the city to coincide with an event you would really like to attend.
For instance come early February film fans can experience the city´s big annual movie festival, Berlinale.
The Karneval der Kulturen (Carnival of Cultures) is Berlin´s biggest and best street carnival. If you have not been yet it is definitely worth planning your trip to catch this fabulous four day event. It’s a lot more relaxed than other big city carnival´s but just as enjoyable.
The Classic Open Air event takes place in the first week of July. The beautiful Gendarmenmarkt, the city´s most beautiful and elegant square, is the venue for four days of great open air concerts.
If you happen to be in Berlin around mid October you´ll be in for a real treat as the city´s famous landmarks and public spaces are gorgeously lit up as part of the Festival of Lights.
