Walk on the tracks of Brecht, Tucholsky and von Kleist
Bookworms in Berlin will have an excellent time mixing with the literati at a number of venues throughout the city. Literature-and culture houses are particularly numerous and include the Literaturforum im Brechthaus which hosts readings and discussions on both classical and contemporary works. The Literarisches Colloquium Berlin is also a fantastic meeting place for the city's literary professionals, with fascinating conferences, workshops and more hosted here. Admiralspalast dates from the roaring 20s and retains its glamour with exciting and lively musical performances. If visiting with children, be sure to check out the Theater an der Parkaue which puts on performances targeted at different age groups, from tots to teens.
