Entertainment in Berlin
No-one has ever accused Berlin
of being dull.
The city has always been famous for its pace and liveliness,
and it seems as if every day the range of entertainment increases.
If you're retracing Isherwood's
footsteps, you may not find Liza Minelli, but "Cabaret" awaits
you in numerous venues, in the shape of the new Comedian Harmonists
or the singer, Tim Fischer.
In the city of Brecht and Reinhardt you have over 50 venues to
choose from, including the Berliner Ensemble, Deutsches Theater
and Theater des Westens.
Berlin hosts 3 major opera houses with reknown conductors, such
as Daniel Barenboim in the State Opera and internationally famous
singers and orchestras, plus a number of smaller local venues
in the suburbs.

And every summer the city hosts the Love Parade, mecca for hundreds
of thousands of Techno fans from all over Europe and the world.
Perhaps you've come to the city that produced Marlene Dietrich
and Fritz Lang's Metropolis? Around 400 films are shown each week
in cinemas as small as a living room or as large as a multiplex
- classics by Fellini, Pabst, Renoir; German cinema from Fassbinder
and Wenders; experimental films from all over the world; new productions
at the Berlin Film Festival every February; and the usual Hollywood
And keep your eye on the calendar because every now and then
Berlin is swept up in the excitement of a really big event - such
as the cosmopolitan street carnival, Karneval der Kulturen, which
attracts half a million visitors to line its route, dancing to
music from all over the world.
All this, plus ballet, modern dance, circus and musicals galore.
There aren't enough days in the week.
