What do you do in Berlin in autumn?

The trees are colourful, the leaves rustle under your feet and it gets dark earlier - that is autumn in Berlin. Autumn brings dirty weather and cosiness, sun and rain. Autumn is the time when we still enjoy the last rays of sunshine - whether it's picking mushrooms in the Grunewald forest, flying a kite on the Tempelhof field, strolling through flea markets or taking autumn walks through the Tiergarten or in the hills of the Müggelberge. As soon as it gets cold and windy outside, there is also a lot going on inside: events in the planetarium, wellness, cinemas, opera or theatre.

Top events in Berlin

Berlin's autumn is getting hot - 2018 there will be several big events that you should not miss. Berlin Art Week kicks off in September with many events relating to contemporary art. This year, Berlin will also host the celebrations surrounding the anniversary of German unification. As every year, Berlin will also shine in the most beautiful colours at the "Berlin leuchtet" festival and Festival of Lights. 

Our tips for the autumn in Berlin

Museums and top exhibitions - Berlin's autumn is the ideal time for this. Why don't you visit the Museum Island once again? The last warm rays of sunshine are best enjoyed in one of Berlin's parks.  And when it rains outside, there are still cosy cafés, wellness oases and Berlin cinemas waiting for you. Or you can make time for going to the theatre, because the new season starts in autumn.
