GREEN DAYS: FLOWER MARKET, DIY WORKSHOPS, CONCERTS, PAINTING & FOOD TRUCKS ON POTSDAMER PLATZ

GREEN DAYS: FLOWER MARKET, DIY WORKSHOPS, CONCERTS, PAINTING & FOOD TRUCKS ON POTSDAMER PLATZ

This week, Berlin will be a little bit greener, flowerier and more sustainable. Why? The Green Days open-air festival on Potsdamer Platz. Taking place this weekend (24–26.06.2022), the green-themed event will feature a flower market, live concerts and painting and DIY workshops that will please hobby gardeners and plant fans alike. Whether you’ve got a balcony, garden, or just a windowsill, there’s a diverse selection of plants and flowers to match any patch. You can also roll up your sleeves with creative DIY workshops: learn to make (dry) flower bouquets and wreaths to decorate your front door or dining table, create your own mosaic flower pot from broken crockery and old tiles, and make a macramé keychain (re- and upcycling is a strong theme here). Food-wise, there’s plenty to eat with Brammibals, Posh Bar and food trucks from Son Kitchen and Fritten Mafia plus live entertainment to bring the good vibes. Expect music from the likes of Cosma JoyMarvin Brooks and Leona Berlin. A plant-filled weekend for all the family: sounds like summer to us…

CAR PARK PARTIES, HOLD MUSIC AND ALBUMS ON CASSETTE: BEATBUDE IN NEUKÖLLN — RECOMMENDED BY CAINELLIKLASKA

CAR PARK PARTIES, HOLD MUSIC AND ALBUMS ON CASSETTE: BEATBUDE IN NEUKÖLLN — RECOMMENDED BY CAINELLIKLASKA

“Hello and welcome to hold music vol. 2” says the female voice at the end of the telephone line. What follows is electronic music – more specifically the latest release from Beatbude: “Hold Music Vol. 2. – music on hold available on 12″ and tape”. If you want to hear it, dial 030 577 13 001 (listen to the whole thing and you can leave a message). This fun idea comes from the middle of Neukölln, where Beatbude is located on the first floor of a building on Weserstraße. Based out of their home there, Charlotte Kehl and Juri Bader spend their days putting out new releases, working on their own projects and running the labels Tax Free and AVA. Records. When the pair are not doing that they’re shipping vinyl, CDs, tapes, magazines and mousepads around the world. The boxes are stored in the basement, the singles under the bed, the trolleys to shift it all outside. Delivery drivers who expect loading ramps, forklifts and pallets to assist their large deliveries are in for a shock when they turn their articulated trucks into the duo’s bike-friendly street.

Beatbude is many things: label, distributor, shop, organizer, studio and rehearsal room. The 90 sqm space is home to a sewing machine in the studio and drums in the bedroom. Customers picking up their orders in person are treated to a coffee and the chance to buy products that are officially sold out. Some of the cassette releases are made in such small numbers that you have to pick them up from car boot sales or from the shop directly. It’s worth checking out Beatbude’s Bandcamp, their meticulously-kept archive (est 2007) and their Instagram, where you’ll find announcements for upcoming events, often at short notice.

Cainelliklaska is the moniker of architects Philipp Burst and Paul Schleith. The pair transform existing buildings, design furniture objects and produce artworks.

Beatbude – you can arrange a visit by appointment.

On Saturday, 25.06.22 there will be a car boot sale at Dieselstr.37 in Neukölln from 17h followed by a concert and music on Ziegrastr.11 from 20h. More info here. On 16.09.2022 Garagen Uwe’s debut album “Low Lights” will be released by Beatbude on vinyl and cassette.

TAG DER ARCHITEKTUR 2022 — BERLIN ARCHITECTS OPEN THEIR DOORS

TAG DER ARCHITEKTUR 2022 — BERLIN ARCHITECTS OPEN THEIR DOORS

If you’re a keen urban aficionado, you are well advised to check out the best of Berlin’s architecture projects at this year’s Tag der Architektur. This weekend (25 & 26.06.2022), some of the city’s best-known architects will reveal their work and offer tours of their latest projects. On Saturday, you can join a guided tour of the “Zwillinge” apartment building duo on Treptow’s Schmollerplatz and Mitte’s “m17”, a block of flats made of lightweight concrete by Zanderrotharchitekten. The tour continues with a glass of frozé at the opening of architect firm Farland’s new offices in Charlottenburg. Then there’s Flussbad Berlin on Fischerinsel, a place that makes you dream of Sunday bathing sessions in the Spree. Last but not least, you can join the guided tours in the imposing and unique Villa Heike artists’ house before ending the weekend with a swim at Orankesee.

HAPPY MATCHA — GREEN TEA DRINKS FOR GOOD VIBES IN A GLASS

HAPPY MATCHA — GREEN TEA DRINKS FOR GOOD VIBES IN A GLASS

“Talk to me again when my matcha kicks in” – the wall painting at Happy Matcha (courtesy of artist Esra Gülmen) is both the motto and the centerpiece of this leafy green cafe on Torstraße. Inspired by the matcha shops of Los Angeles, the two owners and matchaholics Julia and Nina opened what is officially Berlin’s first cafe dedicated to the green tea drink. The pair tried more than 50 different varieties before arriving at the perfect drink: high quality, “ceremonial grade” matcha which is harvested on a small organic tea farm in the Kagoshima mountains in Japan. Two grams of matcha, some water and vegetable milk are what goes into the classic matcha latte. There’s also a whole load of variations: the Sweet and Cosy matchas (with cocoa and chai, respectively), the Detox Matcha with spirulina, the creamy Nitro Matcha and the Dirty Matcha, which is served with an espresso shot.

For the perfect summer alternative to the iced latte there’s the Summertime Forever Matcha which includes coconut rice milk plus strawberry or blueberry puree and ice. The good vibes don’t stop with the drinks: for those with a sweet tooth, there are vegan matcha cookies and other NYC-style treats from neighbors Round & Edgy. Oh, and if you want to go all out, there’s a how-to guide for the perfect matcha ceremony. It turns out happiness does come in a glass after all…
