Berlin starts the autumn with new concepts. The aim is to open up new spaces and at the same time to continue the open-air culture that saved us over the summer. In addition, a new campaign will help you not to forget the rules of distance and hygiene.
So, show responsibility, wear your masks and help to ensure that these new openings in Berlin can start successfully. By the way: We already have a few tips you can look forward to in October!
Tip 1: Finally the waitress wants your number
So that you can get through autumn and winter in Berlin safely, a new campaign will now remind you of the Corona rules with a wink and omnipresent. With bold slogans on digital billboards, beer mats and face masks, you will learn how to protect yourself and others from infection.

Tip 2: DRAUSSENSTADT
Please note: The call for bids and the project have been postponed for the time being.
From October on you will find various projects and events on the plattform DRAUSSENSTADT. Under the motto "One city for all" the venues are exciting urban spaces all over Berlin. Here you can - even in winter - celebrate outdoors, join discussions, be inspired, and also participate and try things out for yourself. The goal of the initiative, which is supported by the Senatsverwaltung for Culture and Europe, is to move urban culture outdoors and create more opportunities for encounters and knowledge transfer. Whether you are interested in pop culture or urban development, in music, art or neighborhood initiatives, this pilot project is for you. Take part! DRAUSSENSTADT networks activists, artists, urban researchers and all those who are interested in new ways of doing things.
The first event is the Day of Club Culture on October 3, the Day of German Unity.
