Whenever there is International Green Week (ger: Grüne Woche), the world of food, agriculture and horticulture gathers in Berlin and every time, there is something interesting to discover.
While Berlin offers a huge variety of international gastronomic specialties throughout the city, the International Green Week offers the opportunity to taste and buy everything at one place.
It’s 2014, welcome to a new year of exciting and interesting events and festivals in Berlin!
But let’s remember what happened last year, while movie premieres clearly dominated the year of 2013 and traditional events like the Green Week, St Patrick’s Day or the Oberbaum Bridge Water Fight were back in town, Berlin also had a good variety of new events, like the celebration of HOLI in Germany, President Barack Obama’s visit to Berlin, the European Kendo Championships or David Hasselhoff’s attempt to save the wall.
The year 2013 in Pictures.
There are many Christmas trees you can see in Berlin, like Sony’s blue light tree at the Sony Center, or the trash tree at Kurfürstendamm. But the big highlights every year are the Christmas trees in front of Berlin’s government buildings, the Reichstag and Kanzleramt and of course the Brandenburger Tor.
Merry Christmas everyone!
