Chansons from Berlin

Many places in Berlin have disappeared and "real" Berliners are also slowly becoming rare. But the songs about them, they remain! And when we sing them, the "old Berlin" comes back to life...

The Berlin air with its fragrance, where nothing fizzles out, is sung about extensively in many songs. In this air, in all places in the city, the most diverse people have always been cavorting with their stories, passions, loves, worries, hardships and joys - and of course with the incomparable Berlin humour.

Come with us on a stroll into the past! Meet the Gänseklein family on Ku'damm and Fredy Sieg at Krummen Lanke. On the bike tour out of Berlin we will not only land in Potsdam, Werder and Ferch, but also in Bernau. That's where Zickenschulze is celebrating his wedding!

The Café Lyrik in Berlin Prenzlauer Berg offers live music in an intimate, cosy atmosphere four days a week.

The café is only open for the four selected concerts in the areas of chanson, klezmer, tango and jazz from Wednesday to Saturday from 7 pm.
