Even if it seems like summer hasn't really started, autumn has now begun in Berlin. We can look forward to big exhibitions and events, cosy hours with coffee and long walks.
Please show responsibility, wear your masks and follow the hygiene rules of the organizers.
Tip 1: Viswit new museums
Humboldt Forum, New National Gallery or the Anoha Children's World in the Jewish Museum: new museums have opened their doors in Berlin and invite you to visit them. Stroll through the impressive Humboldt Forum or discover modern art in the New National Gallery. Children can go on an exciting tour of discovery at Anoha. And Buds Spencer fans can also learn more about their idol at the Buds Spencer Museum.
Tip 2: Out for an autumn walk with the U5
You can easily connect the museums and sights in Mitte with the U5 underground line. It will also take you to the autumn walk in the park of Schloss Biesdorf or the Gärten der Welt. Make a stop at one of the line's three new, spectacularly designed stations - they're well worth a look.
Tip 3: Go to the theater or concert
In the meantime, the stage season has started again and the many theaters, opera houses and concert halls have opened their doors - after having developed thorough concepts for the observance of hygiene measures. So, make yourself comfortable in the theater chair.
Tip 4: Go out for a walk
A walk in the woods is particularly beautiful when the light gently falls through the leaves. The classic in Berlin is of course the Grunewald, the large forest area on the Havel. Here you can take a four-kilometer-long circular walk along 11 information islands of "Wald. Berlin. Climate. - The exhibition in the forest" about climate change in Berlin's forests.
Tip 5: Enjoy fine food
Autumn is the time for delicious and hearty dishes that warm the mind and body. In Berlin, you'll find all kinds of specialities on the menu in restaurants that are just the thing after a long autumn walk. By the way, you can discover the latest trends at eat! berlin - the gourmet festival, which will be taking place from 28 October to 7 November.
Tip 6: Fly a kite
When the autumn winds blow, it's time to let the kite fly. On the Teufelsberg there is always a fresh breeze blowing, and the magnificent view rewards the climb. The plateau on the Volkspark Prenzlauer Berg is also a perfect place for dragon artists. The huge Tempelhofer Feld with almost infinitely wide areas is popular.
Tip 7: Shop winter fashion
With cooler days, it's time to move the wardrobe and change from summer dresses and shorts to sweaters and long trousers. And so it's the perfect time for a shopping spree - whether you prefer to browse the big shopping streets like Kurfürstendamm or small boutiques and cool vintage shops.
Tip 8: Go to the cinema
At last, the cinemas are open again and show films on big screen. In addition, there are again film festivals in Autumn, which bring film art from all over the world and from all genres to Berlin - from debut works to documentaries and horror films.
Tip 9: Enjoy a pumpkin
Delicious pumpkin is available in autumn from soup to casserole. In Berlin we not only carve pumpkin heads on Halloween, but also celebrate the pumpkin with a very own party. On the 3rd and 4th October the 21.Schöneberger pumpkin festival takes hopefully place in the Akazienstraße. Then you can try pumpkins in all kinds and variations.
Autumn can't taste any better!
Tip 10: Browse through bookstores
When the leaves fall outside, it's time to leaf through a book indoors. Many new books are now being published and invite you to browse through the bookshop. We have put together a selection of Berlin novels for you that tell exciting stories from the city's past and present. And we have also picked out tips for beautiful and well-assorted bookstores throughout the city.
Tip 11: Listen to cool sounds at the Jazzfest Berlin
The Jazzfest Berlin brings colour to grey autumn days at the beginning of November. At this festival, not only well-known stars of the international jazz scene perform, but also the young up-and-coming generation. So look forward to creative improvisations and concerts that will introduce you to all the sparkling facets of jazz.
