The festive sale includes dozens of local favorites: jewelry by Sabrina Dehoff, daring fashion by Ukrainian designer Alexandra Piskun, handmade mugs by Helka Ceramicsand chocolate from Walter Confiserie. For the winter months, there’s candles from Garden State, cozy, high-impact socks from Popeia and games to connect with friends and family from Kindred People. The bamboo jewelry from Atelier Elle Pé is well worth a look, too. The Christmas market collection is going live on the app today (24.11.2022) ahead of the IRL market, which starts this Saturday (26.11 15–20h). Join for a nice glass of Glühwein, some music and a stroll around the stands. A leisurely browse through local brands, drink in hand? This is Christmas shopping we can get behind…

TIPS AND INSPIRATION FROM PRO TRAVELERS — A HALL FULL OF WANDERLUST AT BERLIN TRAVEL FESTIVAL

TIPS AND INSPIRATION FROM PRO TRAVELERS — A HALL FULL OF WANDERLUST AT BERLIN TRAVEL FESTIVAL

Brandenburg or Bulgaria? Hammock or houseboat? Weekend getaway or wellness retreat? If you fancy being somewhere else but aren’t sure where to head, it’s time to visit Messe Berlin for an exotic escape. It’s there that the Berlin Travel Festival is taking place (25–27.11.2022), inviting globetrotting travelers and cultural ambassadors from places ranging from Georgia to Jerusalem. If you want to stay closer, that’s good too: regional districts like Spreewald and Mecklenburg are also represented. Hopping from one stand to the next, you’ll soon discover your new number one travel destination. The fair has it all, from tiny house accommodation to capsule hotels and wonderful Wayks backpacks for adventurous trips. There’s also travel reading material aplenty. Organized by Bernd Neff and his team and returning after a pandemic pause, the festival is very much about the experience. The location has switched from Arena Berlin to the Messe, and while it might be a bit further away, it’s really a stone’s throw given how much there is to discover. Time to cure that wanderlust and temper that travel fever.

SOUND YOU CAN FEEL — SPATIAL FESTIVAL BRINGS IMMERSIVE MUSIC TO MONOM’S 4D SOUND SYSTEM

SOUND YOU CAN FEEL — SPATIAL FESTIVAL BRINGS IMMERSIVE MUSIC TO MONOM’S 4D SOUND SYSTEM

An extraordinary program of extraordinary art with extraordinary sound: this weekend (25–27.11.2022) a very special festival is taking place at Monom, the studio and listening space located at the Funkhaus complex. Running for three days, Spatial Festival combines sound, art, music and technology. Alongside live concerts by Berlin-based artists like Tobias Freund, William Russel and Robert Henke, the line-up features sound installations by international artists. Among them is the world premiere of Soundwalk Collective and Patti Smith, who will present their joint album “The Perfect Vision” (released tomorrow, 25.11). But this is by no means the only world-class name: the program also features James Blake, Suzanne Ciani, Willem Dafoe, Alex Ebert, Charlotte Gainsbourg…the list goes on and on. Then there are the surprise acts, such as a sound installation by Paul B. Preciado, who is usually associated with philosophy and queer theory. The performances are reproduced using 4D sound, a spatial sound system consisting of 48 omnidirectional loudspeakers and nine subwoofers. The result is an immersive sound experience that makes you feel, fantasize, interact and maybe even get lost – in a good way, of course…

FRAGRANCES AND FRIENDS — SCENT STUDIO POP-UP FROM ATELIER OBLIQUE

FRAGRANCES AND FRIENDS — SCENT STUDIO POP-UP FROM ATELIER OBLIQUE

Mario Lombardo and Vanessa Obrecht, founders of Berlin perfume house Atelier Oblique, have made quite a name for themselves in the fragrance world. Drawing inspiration from their lives and the city they’ve lived in for many years, the duo’s perfumes are full of memories. Part Berlin, part Grasse, part Paris, their collections are handmade in Germany. We’ve long been fans of their elegant Mitte boutique and of course the products themselves: handmade candles that reflect Lombardo’s timeless design taste and perfumes that remind you of Berlin club nights and spring days in April. As Atelier Oblique has grown, so has the network behind it. You can meet this fragrance family yourself starting today (17.11.2022) at the launch of “Scent Studio”, a pre-Christmas pop-up which will see Lombardo and Obrecht bring together exciting boutique labels and fragrance creators from all over Europe.

Until 23.12, fragrance houses from Amsterdam, Bologna, Vienna and Barcelona are setting up shop at Atelier Oblique’s space, including Norwegian Dag Laska, who combines the olfactory landscapes of Scandinavia with clean Nordic design with his brand Son Venïn. He’ll be at the launch to personally present his latest creations, as will Nico Mannino from Swiss label Pernoire. If you fancy meeting these scent experts – or just want to hear from Mario how his Argentinian childhood influenced his perfumes – stop by the Mitte shop from tonight for a chat and a glass of wine

KIMCHI BOWLS, BBQ BURGERS, NYC COOKIES & BIODYNAMIC WINES — FEMALE FOOD DAYS AT POTSDAMER PLATZ

KIMCHI BOWLS, BBQ BURGERS, NYC COOKIES & BIODYNAMIC WINES — FEMALE FOOD DAYS AT POTSDAMER PLATZ

Today marks the start of Female Food Days (17–19.11.2022), a three-day feast at The Playce at Potsdamer Platz featuring street food stands from all over the world. Local newcomers and established gastro players – all run by women – will be setting up shop and we’re here to give you the highlights. At Afropot you can try West African cuisine inspired by Ghanaian home cooking, while over at Love Bites you can grab doughy NYC-style cookies. One must-try is the Korean bibimbap bowl from Fräulein Kimchi, or there’s the smoked pulled pork BBQ burgers from duo Anna and Tom at Big Stuff Smoked BBQ (you might know them from Markthalle Neun). If it’s Italian comfort food you’re after, be sure to pay Gnoccheria Berlin a visit.

Decorated with colorful fabrics, lanterns and hanging plants, the stalls include locally brewed beer from Berliner Berg and lemonades and biodynamic wine from Treat Berlin, who are also doing wine tastings. There will also be an exciting workshop with Piaplants, plus a cozy hangout area with live music and DJs including Lockereasy. To finish up is something sweet: handmade mochi from Daifuku Mochi or (and?) elegant vegan cakes from Mansfield Park. The perfect lunch or after-work meal? We think so.
