A weekend in Berlin: from Januar the 28th till Sunday the 30th, our recommendations on what to see and do in Berlin!

EastSeven´s TOP 10

1. FANCY SOME CHILLED CINEMA?

Try this very unique cinema in a squat house, close to S-Bahn station “Ostkreuz” (that’s only a 20 mins ride). They screen very special movies you probably won’t see anywhere else (many in OV). check out the website for the program. Entrance 4-5 €, they have good beer, too.
Corinthstr. 61

2. HOLGI STAR + ANDROMAT 3000 LIVE

@Weekend, starts 23:59
enjoy the fantastic view early morning from the rooftop terrace

3. THE BERLIN WALL MEMORIAL: GEDENKSTäTTE BERLINER MAUER

The Documentation Centre known as Dokumentationszentrum Berliner Mauer is one of three integral elements which together make up the Gedenkstatte Berliner Mauer – Berlin Wall Monument at Bernauer Strasse – combining a stretch of the former Berlin Wall, the Kapelle der Versöhnung (Reconciliation Chapel) and, across the road, the Documentation Centre itself.

This is an important source of information and an original documentary source/archive devoted to the history of the Berlin Wall. A multimedia presentation draws on the local historical experience at Bernauer Strasse, exploring varied aspects of the political background and historical detail surrounding one of the most poignant and significant events of the Cold War.

The street’s unique position cut into two sides by the Wall with East Berlin buildings on one side and a pavement/sidewalk on the side of West Berlin evoked the madness of the concrete Wall dividing the city.

Information panels are in German and English.

Address:
Bernauer Str. 111
13355 Berlin
Admission free!!!
And ONLY 15mins walk from East Seven

8. RAMONES MUSEUM BERLIN

Punk rock legends The Ramones come from New York, but their biggest fan might just be from Berlin. Florian Hayler collected hundreds of Ramones-related items, and attended more than 100 Ramones concerts, then decided to collect his expertise and souvenirs in a museum. It debuted in 2005, a year after the death of founding band member Johnny Ramone.

The current museum opened in October 2008 after a move and an expansion. On display are childhood photos of the group, gig set lists, fliers from the band’s early days and a vast collection of concert t-shirts. If you bop ‘til you drop, the Ramones Museum’s Café Mania has drinks, snacks and light meals on offer.

The museum, located just off Oranienburger Strasse near art house Tacheles and the New Synagogue, also hosts movie screenings, acoustic shows, and Ramones-related special events. Closed Mondays and Wednesdays.

Address:
Krausnickstr. 23
10115 Berlin
