BOOK YOUR TICKET FOR AN INTERGALACTIC JOURNEY AT THE ZEISS PLANETARIUM

BOOK YOUR TICKET FOR AN INTERGALACTIC JOURNEY AT THE ZEISS PLANETARIUM

Struggling to see the stars in these urban skies? Well don’t worry: you can gaze at distant galaxies at the Zeiss Planetarium in Prenzlauer Berg. Opened in 1987 and renovated 2014–16, this high-spec auditorium is a beautiful place to sit back in comfortable armchairs in the dark and enjoy the starry sky – perhaps with a special someone. And with various lectures in the program, you’ll learn something too. Tomorrow (14.02.2019) at 17h the “Fantastic Universe” show illuminates the cosmos from antiquity to today, while at 18h30 “Earth – Birth of a Planet” looks at origin of our world and its relationship to our solar system. Finally, at 20h, science enthusiasts can go on a journey through our galaxy in “Starry Night for Lovers“, a Valentine’s special for finding love amongst the constellations. See you in outer space.

CLAYGROUND: A CO-WORKING SPACE FOR CERAMICISTS — FUN INCLUDED

CLAYGROUND: A CO-WORKING SPACE FOR CERAMICISTS — FUN INCLUDED

Caitlin Delphine spent four years getting her hands dirty in her Stockholm apartment, all in aid of her passion: ceramics. After moving to Berlin, her and her partner Jonas Klock started Clayground, a membership studio that provides a co-working space for ceramicists. Jonas (the architect known as Accidental Concrete – you may recognize him from our very first Cee Cee Lessons) designed the studio, which has the look of a worn painter’s apron – textured, muted browns and blues, with light dust from a day’s work. Designed for committed hobbyists and established ceramicists alike, members often consult each other, sharing information and glazing tips. Here you can play and learn, day or night, in an un-crowded space. If you’re hoping to further your ceramic craft you can apply to be a member on their website (subject to availability). Still learning the ropes? Check out the upcoming workshops run in-house by Brsg. (Text: Scarlett Peeters / Photos: Constantin Gerlach)

MASH PIT: FRESH BREWS ON TAP AND WORKSHOPS FOR BEER-LOVERS IN THE GRAEFEKIEZ

MASH PIT: FRESH BREWS ON TAP AND WORKSHOPS FOR BEER-LOVERS IN THE GRAEFEKIEZ

Beer is, of course, the German national drink. And almost as much fun as enjoying a refreshing ale or pilsner is brewing one yourself. Alas, producing a good brew at home can be quite a challenge, which is why Tim Hauke and Christian Gläser opened their own open-access brewery, Mash Pit, at beginning of 2019. Anyone with the time and passion can come to their bright and airy premises in Neukölln’s Graefekiez and do some brewing. The only requirement before you can work at one of their six brewing stations is to complete a six-hour workshop. There Christian will tell you everything you need to know about barley, hops and fermentation. Did you know, for example, that the color and taste of beer depends on how the barley is germinated and dried? By the end you can proudly hold your very own self-made beer in your hands before it goes into the cooler for four to six weeks. And if you can’t wait that long, there are a range of home-brewed beers available on tap for instant consumption. (Text: Hanna Komornitzyk / Photos: Savannah van der Niet)

Do you spend your life criss-crossing town like us? Luckily your workout doesn’t have to take a hit with Urban Sports Club, which turns the whole city into your fitness playground. Headquartered in Berlin and now Europe-wide, the flat-rate sports membership club allows you to explore over 50 sports and activities across hundreds of studios in the city, for a fitness routine that brings you from Neukölln to Moabit and everywhere in between. Our 2020 fitness trend is for short but effective workouts and we take the chance to train wherever we find ourselves: like the 45-minute power cycling class at Beat81, for an energy boost when passing through Friedrichshain. On social visits to Kreuzberg, our favorite stop to get our feet off the ground is the pole dancing classes at Soul Flight by Moritzplatz. And after Sunday brunch in Neukölln, it’s the perfect time for some wellness with a session at Hotpod Yoga Berlin, a multisensory take on classic hot yoga.

MAKING YOUR OWN FINE PORCELAIN JEWELRY: WORKSHOPS AT GOLDEN SPLEEN — RECOMMENDED BY SOPHIE HERZBERG

MAKING YOUR OWN FINE PORCELAIN JEWELRY: WORKSHOPS AT GOLDEN SPLEEN — RECOMMENDED BY SOPHIE HERZBERG

Always wanted to turn your ideas into reality and design your own jewelry? Time to meet Katharina Zink, founder of Golden Spleen, the jewelry studio where you can let your creativity run free. Joining this trained graphic artist for a four-week workshop, we were able to draw on her vast expertise and discover the entire process of making porcelain jewelry. After introductions over tea and biscuits, we tried our hand at ceramic moulding, and by the second attempt we were able to implement our own designs with some confidence. After the porcelain hardened slightly (leather-hard, in the lingo) we were able to cut, shape and emboss it into jewelry pieces. By the third week we were glazing and painting the moulds and, after a final firing in the kiln, the individual pieces were ready to be combined and completed to form an earring, ring or pendant. The pieces make great gifts, while for your more creative loved ones, the workshops themselves are a perfect present. (Text: Sophie Herzberg / Photos: Sophie Döring)
