Choriner Strassenfest 11th July 13.00

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

just round the corner from our lovely hostel is a quiet street with a lot of history. for 20 years the fantastic tennants organise a festival to celebrate arts, music and the coherence of everyone living in our neighbourhood.their initial goal however, was an experiment to keep out the ever emerging ttraffic.
today the street is a bike street , meaning bikes have a right of way and maximum speed is rather snail pace. this is not only good for cyclists, but for the many children living there.
to celebrate this, they organise a fantastic music festival with several stages, food and comedy shows.

don’t miss the bolschewistische kurkapelle schwarz-rot!
go there, have fun

this is Mr foosball

Thursday, July 2nd, 2015

this is our newest member of the EastSeven family- and possibly the most popular one.
we are all a bit crazy about football in germany. so crazy, it can be played even in pubs, drunk. there is even a professional league! this miniature version of a pitch can create as many emotions as a real game. if you don’t believe it, challenge one of the staff members and you will see. friendly receptionist turn into shouting and swearing children like versions of themselves.

what you don’t see on this picture is the outdoor shower just next to the foosball table where you can cool down.
BTW, we don’t call it foosball, but kicker.Topsy-turvy world

the fete de la musique is a free festival with hundreds of gigs throughout berlin. tens of thousands people celebrate the longest day of the year with a musical twist. you will find all kinds of concerts, from super small out of the window dj sets to huge gigs with huge names – all for free of course. officially there are only 100 stages, but this wouldn’t be berlin if we wouldn’t top it up with some less official ones.
so, if music is the love of your live, the city belongs to you between 4pm – 10pm

go there – have fun

torstrasse-not necessarily a beauty

torstrasse-not necessarily a beauty

party people!

i blogged about torstrasse a while ago.
it is one forgotten boulevard of Berlin, loud, harsh and dirty. Now there are loads of new stores and restaurants for a hip urban crowd. the traffic is still compelling though.

if you love city life and festival this one festival is for you!
almost all bars and clubs participate. there will be music, there will be arts , there will be laughter.
go there, have fun

russendisko is one of the most consistent and entertaining parties in berlin. it was founeded by wladimir kaminer, a russian author and bonvivant  who has been livin in our lovely neighbourhood, prenzlauer berg, since early ninities. this unregular event is a great combination of everything we love in an unpretentious manner. this time it is hosted by  our all time favourite bassy club on schönhauser alle. this is quite conveninet. you will be able to get back home without leaving your phone in a cab.



freakishly long berlin summer days

Sunday, May 31st, 2015


this is definitely the best time to visit our lovely city. it is not getting dark – literally – it is not getting dark. you go out to party, it’s not dark yet, you go home – it’s bright. the power of the summer skies is the most scenic thing i’ve ever seen. the colours range from bright orange to purple to baby blue. this spectacular sights are caused by, yes you knew it already, pollution. however, the particals in the air derive from nature. berlin is surrounded by sandy soil.
enough of that – come to berlin . it is fantastic

the one and only neil numb


from time to time we need some good ol’ laughter. however, good comedy is hard to find in berlin. we do have techno, walls and some kinky stuff . humour is not our strongest point of sale. thankfully this wonderful city is inhabited by wonderful people from all over the world. the location, griessmühle,  is more known as a techno temple, they have a lovely outdoor area too! Doors open at 18.00 german time. along comedy, there will be  for BBQ, Side Show & DJs and beer.
S-Neukölln – follow the laughter

go there, have fun

ever wondered how berlin looked in the 80ies?

most parts of the wall have been torn down shortly after reunification. there are only a few parts left like the east side gallery albeit they fail to communicte a feeling. berlin was a dirty place – coal heating and smokey factories on the eastern part, punks and alternative culture in the west. present-day berlin is rather a different one. Although you can still smell the past here and there ( especially in görlitzer park)

this beatiful panoramic exhibition gives you an authentic insight in the everyday live on the border between the 2 berlins. experience border fortifications and the daily horror at Yadegar Asisi’s Panorama.

we went to check it out and found it worthwile!

Best thing is, you can have as much as you want with our breakfast.

Simply come to the receprion in the mornig and say hi to Mr. Coffee
