What to do in Berlin? Visit one of the many beuatiful parks!

Monday, July 30th, 2012
Berlin Mauerpark
Berlin Mauerpark

A Top 5 of Parks in Prenzlauer berg

It is summertime and the weather is nice, the perfect time to visit one of the many beautiful parks in Berlin. Closeby to the hostel, in Prenzlauer Berg, there are a number of nice parks! Here is a Top5!

1. A new park in Prenzlauer Berg, the LEISE PARK

A bit spooky and scary, you may think, this park is located on the grounds of  a former cemetery.

It is called Leise-Park, which means as much as quiet park. You find here lots of nice playgrounds for your kids, also there are still some grave-stones maintained.  It is a beautiful park, with many nice flowers and plants.

Go here to get away from the busy center and to let your thoughts flow and your kids play.

2. Volkspark am Friedrichhain
Volkspark Friedrichshain -A beautiful park, excellent for jogging or having a picnic or
barbeque. In the middle you’ll find Friedrichshains highest hill, which provides a 78-metre
high view over Berlins flat terrain. The hill was actually man-made to cover up a destroyed
anti-aircraft bunker from World War II, as well as several tonnes of bombed out rubble.
Also you can play beachvolleyball for free here. They have a special area reserved for
beachsports. Its free to use for anyone but you´d have to bring your own equipment.

3. Mauerpark
If you are over 20 and still like to play (particularly with beer bottles), then this is your playground. Its the best place in Berlin for relaxed outdoor boozing and there are hilltop swingsets which are a great spot for watching the sun sink lazily in the West.
Dont miss the fabulous flea market on Sundays.

4. Park am Wasserturm
The Wasserturm is the unofficial symbol of Prenzlauer Berg, this 30m high tower was built in 1877 as the local water reservoir. Once used by the Nazis as a prison, today the round brick Wasserturm has been converted into trendy apartments.
Check for art exhibitions next to the tower, in the underground reservoir. The park that surrounds the Wasserturm is relaxed! there is a huge playground, a fountain, trampolines and a table-tennis spot!

5. Kollwitzpark
Käthe Kollwitz, the famous left-wing, anti-war artist, would no doubt take great pride that not only is there a square named after her (complete with bronze statue) but that its one that was once a meeting point for intellectuals and artists during Prenzlauer Bergs nasty East Germany days.
Dont miss Kollwitzplatz`s famous market on saturdays
Enjoy amazing cakes and delicious coffee at the Anna Blume café on the corner of Sredzkistrasse and Kollwitzstrasse.
Just round the corner is Rykestrasse Synagogue, Germany’s largest synagogue.

And after a hard day´s walking, why not recover in EastSeven´s lush garden with some selected german beers!

Hope to see you soon in Berlin!!

Our headliner KID SISTER (Fools Gold) comes all the way from the windy city, Chicago where she is at the frontline of a new way to view dance music, house and hip-hop all mixed in one bowl. As so many times before, the Chicago music scene keeps surprising and innovating. She will perform a live set with support from Chicago-ite WILLY JOY who, among many other achievements, got into URB’s “Top 100 artists to watch 2010″.

To back her up, we brought in the heaviest bass you can find in all of Poland, thats right kids, we got SUPRA1 in the house. Just signed to the infamous Trouble & Bass label in NYC, their very special genre bending dubstep is sure to bring some bass in your face.

Further more we have the crunkest DJ in Berlin, the Stockholm native SHIBIE (Nordic by Nature) to get your booties shaking and get you crazy drunk!

For those of you who appreciate the good old 4/4, our upstairs room will provide you with fantastic, groovy, percussive and, of course, awesome house and techno.

We have the debut from Stadthund and Cinthie called DAS CHRISTL (Rafiger / Awesome) and we are all very excited to hear what’s in their magic sound bag.

Wait! There will be another debut, and this one from up ‘n coming tech house heroes TRICUS & GOLDSTEIN (Awesome). These partners in crime are sure to move and shake you and make you want to hear more.

As if that’s not enough, we have FUNKENSTRØM (Symbiont) to impress you with his intelligent and very personal sound.

We also have a big surprise for you, consider it a cherry on top! It is a special guest from Dirtybird who will destroy the dance floor in the best way possible, of course…

7)  EXHIBITION @ DEUTSCHE GUGGENHEIM

Being Singular Plural: Moving Images from India

Being Singular Plural: Moving Images from India is oriented toward coproducing new work, facilitating research, and assembling a community of practitioners. A resolutely heterogeneous and ultimately unresolved exhibition, it attempts to avoid some of the pitfalls of surveying contemporary production in a given region. The exhibition brings together a number of moving-image works by a select group of media practitioners who currently live in India and who are working in film or video rather than “new media.” These images do not serve as windows onto the world, nor point to any transcendent truths, but are presented as they are, distinguished by their evidence. Jean-Luc Nancy formulates the screen as a “sensitive membrane [that] stretches and hangs between a world in which representation . . . [is] in charge of the signs of truth, of the heralding of a meaning, or of the warrant of a presence to come; and another world that opens onto its presence through a voiding where its thoughtful evidence realizes itself.” The act of “voiding” or emptying out of representation, which is the resting place of evidence, points ontologically to the moving image as an end in itself rather than a means to an end that may lie outside of its surface. This embodiment of truth as it resides within the very structure and materiality of the image (or idea) overturns previous expectations of how the moving image communicates with the world. The artist-filmmakers Sonal Jain and Mriganka Madhukaillya of Desire Machine Collective, Shumona Goel with Shai Heredia, Amar Kanwar, and Kabir Mohanty reveal a craft that is based on the principles of practice, process, and perception. In each instance, the singularly plural and plurally singular nature of being and of art remains central.

open: daily from 10 till 20

Unter den Linden 13-15

On Sunday:

8 ) SUNDAY FLEAMARKETDAY

Sunday is fleamarket day. Close to the hostel (500 m)you find the Arkonaplatz Fleamarket and the famous Mauerpark fleamarket.

TOP 10 of amazing things to do in Berlin, FREE of CHARGE!

Berlin

Berlin

10 cool tips to have an amazing time in Berlin and save some money while you´re at it!!!!!

EastSeven Berlin Hostel recommends cool activities and sightseeing spots, all of which are free of charge.
We have made a list of 10 interesting things to see and do in the exciting metropole Berlin.

Here is our TOP 10:

1.Tacheles – One-time department store then SS headquarters in the heart of Berlins former Jewish quarter, the Tacheles was taken over by squatters in 91. Behind the buildings bombed out façade is a wealth of art studios, two cinemas, 3 bars, a beach bar, a café and a newly opened bourgeois restaurant.Watch out for the fire-breathing dragon in Café Zapata! Just opposite youll find delicious French fries served from a dodgy looking trailer called Beckers Fritten
2.Gendarmenmarkt – Touted by many guidebooks as the prettiest square in Berlin, Gendarmenmarkt is famous for its two churches – one Protestant, one Catholic – each built opposite each other by the opposing religion. Not often that happens. TIP: Fassbender & Rausch, possibly the worlds greatest chocolate shop, is on the corner of Gendarmenmarkt

3.Kollwitzplatz – Käthe Kollwitz, the famous left-wing, anti-war artist, would no doubt take great pride that not only is there a square named after her (complete with bronze statue) but that its one that was once a meeting point for intellectuals and artists during Prenzlauer Bergs nasty East Germany days. Dont miss Kollwitzplatz`s famous market on saturdays
Enjoy amazing cakes and delicious coffee at the Anna Blume café on the corner of Sredzkistrasse and Kollwitzstrasse.
Just round the corner is Rykestrasse Synagogue, Germany’s largest synagogue.

4.Museums on Thursday night for free: NO ADMISSION FOR ALL STATE MUSEUMS
don’t pay money for culture! most of the state museums are admission free on Thursdays. Simply ask at the reception where to go!
5.Reichstag- The German parliament building, re-opened in 1999 after the government and most of the ministries moved from Bonn to Berlin. British architect Lord Norman Foster redesigned this place, complete with a huge glass dome with public access, so you can watch the politicians at work.
You can get in for FREE. Try to avoid the queues at the Reichstag, make a reservation at Kaefers restaurant at the top of the glass dome. This should get you in the side door.
6.Holocaust Memorial- Berlins ultra-controversial memorial for the murdered Jews of Europe, 2,711 concrete blocks jutting off at offensive and suffocating angles. Co-incidentally only a stones throw away from the site of Adolf Hitlers former underground lair, the Führerbunker.
Walk through the memorial, youll quickly realise its not the kind of place you want to have a summer picnic at.

7.Potsdamer Platz- This was the glitzy centre of Germanys debauched 1920s metropolis, and the site Europes first traffic light system. Smashed into rubble during WW II, its now home to Europes fastest elevator and a mass of steel and glass buildings said to represent the future of Berlin.
Check out the Sony Centre and Cinemax cinemas for films in their original language (e.g. English, this is not for free of course!)
8.Volkspark Friedrichshain -A beautiful park, excellent for jogging or having a picnic or barbeque. In the middle you’ll find Friedrichshains highest hill, which provides a 78-metre high view over Berlins flat terrain. The hill was actually man-made to cover up a destroyed anti-aircraft bunker from World War II, as well as several tonnes of bombed out rubble. Also you can play beachvolleyball for free here. They have a special area reserved for beachsports. Its free to use for anyone but you´d have to bring your own equipment.

9.Fleamarket -Sunday is fleamarket day. Close to the hostel (500 m) you find the Arkonaplatz Fleamarket and the famous Mauerpark fleamarket. If you don´t want to buy something – no problem,  you first of all go there to see all kind of urban subjects with hangover and even sober ones. Berliners go there – you should as well, and ofcourse there is no entrance fee here!
10.Brandenburg Gate -Every 10, 20 and 50 cent German Euro coin is minted with a picture of this big city gate on its reverse side. Stranded in a lonely no-mans land between 1961 and 89 thanks to the East German government, no other structure in Berlin better symbolises the temporary division of the city. Just go to foot from Unter den Linden and take a closer look at this immense Gate. This Beautiful sight in Berlin is also admission free to visit.

Buncker Berlin

Buncker Berlin

all the cool parties and exhibtions for this week presented to you by the EastSeven Berlin Hostel

Staying in Berlin is cool, especially when you know exactly where all the cool parties and the good exhibitions are.
Therefore we have created a tool on our website: staff-recommendations. Here all the EastSeven Crew shares with the rest of the world what they are up to during the week or at the weekend.
Here it´s visible to everyone who´s interested in cool insider tipps on events, clubs and exhibitions in Berlin.

we will start with monday:

  • EASTSEVEN COOKS A DELICIOUS MEAL : FREE PASTA FOR ALL OUR GUESTS!

Every Monday the EastSeven Berlin Hostel cooks for her guests. The food is simple, but good (and for free), the atmosphere is friendly and the night still young…
Here is how it works:
Every Monday:
Free vegetarian Meal
Starts: 19h00
• Sign up at the reception till Monday 15h00
• Meet us in the lounge at 19h00
• You´re welcome to help us
• Feel free to bring your own extra ingredients
• We sell drinks at the reception

  • CULTURE AT HAMBURGER BAHNHOF! PLUS IN THE MUSEUM THERE’S NO ICE AND SNOW…

“A troop of monkeys celebrate a feast, a panther wanders across a snowy Alpine landscape and a pack of white wolves surround a buffalo dripping blood in a manicured French garden. At first glance Walton Ford’s large-scale animal watercolour paintings evoke prints by French and British colonial-era illustrators from the 19th century. After closer examination however, they reveal a pictorial universe of complex and disturbing allusions. The various tigers, lions, birds and primates that populate the life-size pictures appear as vivacious protagonists locked in allegorical struggles. The resulting combination of historical fact, natural history inquiry and surreal imaginings give rise to Walton Ford’s brilliant ‘Bestiarium’.”  from 23.01 till 24.5.2010

  • HOW TO SPEND A MONDAY EVENING?

Free dinner at the hostel, drinks and pingpong fun at Dr. Pong and then hit up the Kulturbrauerei where there’s always a party!

  • HIGHGRADE RECORDS LABEL SHOW AT BERLIN MITTE INSTITUT

Another great Berlin based label is visiting the Berlin Mitte Institut für Bessere Elektronische Musik to showcase their artists and music. Highgrade definately belongs to one of the big players in the scene, having regular label nights @ Panorama Bar, Arena Club and Watergate. And now for the first time with us :-)

  • JOSS STONE + ROBERT FRANCIS

Joss Stones kometenhafter Aufstieg an die Spitze der modernen Soulmusik ist kein Zufall. In der Stimme der jungen Britin spiegelt sich die tiefe Emotionalität einer Aretha Franklin ebenso wieder wie die becircende Sexyness einer Donna Summer oder die dunkle Melancholie einer Bettye Lavette. Zahlreiche Grammy-Nominierungen, mehr als sechs Millionen verkaufter Alben sowie monatelange Chart-Notierungen in allen wichtigen Musikmärkten der Welt sprechen eine deutliche Sprache. Seit im Oktober ihr viertes Album “Colour Me Free” erschien, kennt die weltweite Joss Stone-Begeisterung wieder einmal kaum Grenzen. Diesen stetig wachsenden Erfolg untermauert der attraktive Twen mit einer großen Tournee, in deren Rahmen sie zwischen dem 22. Februar und dem 5. März auch Konzerte in München, Köln, Berlin und Hamburg spielen wird.

Sichern Sie sich jetzt Ihre Tickets und freuen Sie sich auf Joss Stone live!
