HIKING, WINE TASTING & DINNER IN A GREENHOUSE — AUTUMN TRIPS FROM DREAM LOCAL

HIKING, WINE TASTING & DINNER IN A GREENHOUSE — AUTUMN TRIPS FROM DREAM LOCAL

Autumn has arrived! And with it are some new events on Dream Local to make the most of the golden season. If you’ve always fancied eating in a greenhouse, the autumn dinner on the flower farm (22.10.2022) in Pankow is just the ticket. The program actually starts outside with an afternoon workshop where you have the opportunity to explore the idyllic flower field and pick blooms for your own bouquet. Afterwards, you’ll cook and eat sustainable, seasonal food together. If you’re more in the mood for a wine tasting, the platform has also got you covered. Also on 22.10.2022 you can head to the Dobbrikow vineyard in Brandenburg for a hilly hike along three lakes before sampling some regional natural wines and other delicacies. You’ll then head inside to Haus am Bauernsee where you will enjoy a cozy meal and, of course, more wine. You are also invited to enjoy a barrel tasting and a visit to a wine press. Cheers and bon appétit!

TALES OF BERLIN’S BUILT ENVIRONMENT — ARCHITECTURE TOURS BY TICKET B

TALES OF BERLIN’S BUILT ENVIRONMENT — ARCHITECTURE TOURS BY TICKET B

The best way to discover the architecture around you is simple: look up. Above street level, you’ll find a world of unusual facades, sustainable methods and new urban developments. It’s a perspective the team at Ticket B know pretty well – and they are keen on sharing the view. The company runs architect-led tours to Berlin’s most interesting buildings, revealing the city’s built environment and the history, politics and culture behind the bricks. Previous walks have included everything from celebrated housing estates to hidden architectural gems, though the focus is mainly on the contemporary: regular stops include the Axel Springer Campus by Rem Koolhaas and David Chipperfield’s James Simon Galerie. Some of the outings take place in a single district, such as Wild Wedding which, as the name suggests, is all about the multicultural Berlin neighborhood.

Starting at Gesundbrunnen, the tour takes you around the progressive designs and innovative renovations that are transforming (and, some would say, gentrifying) the area. Visiting sites like Lobe Block and Ex-Rotaprint, you’ll hear about the architecture itself and learn about the unique culture and social context of this rapidly-changing neighborhood. Armed with this knowledge, you’ll soon be looking up – and learning – wherever you go.

SWEET ART — HANDCRAFTED CHOCOLATES AND LIMITED EDITION PRINTS FROM SAWADE & KUNST 100

SWEET ART — HANDCRAFTED CHOCOLATES AND LIMITED EDITION PRINTS FROM SAWADE & KUNST 100

Creamy Cointreau butter truffles in pink chocolate, sweet walnut marzipan in dark, and crunchy leaf praline in milk. Whatever the color, Sawade chocolates are little works of art. Speaking of which, from October you can get these luxe chocs in an even more special format: combined with limited edition artwork. Together with online gallery Kunst 100, the Berlin praline manufacturer has created five limited edition boxes of chocolates. Five artists – Charlotte Rother, Lerke Nennemann, Vreni Frost, Sarah Zak and Tobias Geigenmüller – have designed works exclusively to fit Sawade’s praline box format, using a high-quality printing process on fine art paper and hand-numbered, dated and signed by Kunst100 on the reverse. As for the chocolates inside: you’ll find 20 fine truffles from the city’s oldest praline manufacturer. The set is perfect as a Berlin souvenir or a gift for loved ones (or yourself!). You can pick up one of the Sawade x Kunst 100 editions from 06.10.2022 in the Sawade online shop and in Berlin branches.

FORWARD FESTIVAL — CREATIVES CONNECT AT SOLD OUT BERLIN GATHERING

FORWARD FESTIVAL — CREATIVES CONNECT AT SOLD OUT BERLIN GATHERING

With their working lives spent looking at computer screens and drawing on tablets, it’s no wonder designers don’t usually get to meet fellow creatives in person. Forward Festival, held last Thursday and Friday (22 & 23.09.2022) at Kino International, offered a rare chance to come together. We headed to the ornate cinema to pay a visit to the sold-out event, which saw digital drawers and camera clickers from all over gather to chat design, creativity, and communication. There was no shortage of ideas as a line-up of 30 speakers showed off their portfolios and revealed insider knowledge in talks hosted by graphic designer Eike König. The line-up amounted to a who’s who of influential, on-trend creatives: color-blending 3D artist Vincent Schwenk, Type legends Grilli Type and deliciously sarcastic illustrator Mr Bingo and many more were in attendance.

Over at the workshop area, designers were honing their professional skills and getting portfolios critiqued at sessions on type design and – our personal favorite – collage making.The partner for the festival was the  Senate Department for Economics, Energy and Public Enterprises, with the responsible State Secretary  Michael Biel taking to the stage. Berlin creatives were well represented too: typographer Charlotte Rohde and artist Ju Schnee took part, as did  collective _thek, who printed shirts in support of creatives and small business owners. After all this input, we left the retro venue inspired and eager to sketch, shoot and illustrate to our heart’s content.

TEAM EVENTS MADE TO MEASURE — GROUP OUTINGS AND GETAWAYS FROM DREAM LOCAL

TEAM EVENTS MADE TO MEASURE — GROUP OUTINGS AND GETAWAYS FROM DREAM LOCAL

Planning a team trip or getaway with friends and don’t know where to go? Or indeed how to coordinate it all? For solutions, the online platform Dream Localis worth taking a look at. From the unusual “cow whispering”, where you learn to herd friendly bovines as a team, to flower picking and winemaking tours, there’s plenty on offer. The activities and events can be tailored to your needs and are all about bringing people together. One way to do this, of course, is food, something you’ll certainly find at the local dinner experience. Cooked sustainably, the menu includes vegetarian dishes and tips and tricks from the chef on how to minimize packaging and food waste. If you’re in the mood for some fresh air and a farm (of sorts), then the morning at the flower farm is the thing for you. You and your companions can create freshly-picked bouquets and learn some floriculture along the way: which plants are native to the region? Which flowers are available in which season? And what are sustainable cultivation techniques and harvesting all about? There’s also a chance to rest and relax: the flower field is located in a very idyllic, quiet cemetery in Pankow in the immediate vicinity of the Botanical Park. Plenty of space to stretch your legs with colleagues and talk about what you’ve learned, or to go for a quiet walk by yourself.
