The 18 Best Cities for Dance Music
VICE - August 2014


Quote:
3. Berlin

The European haven that has been inspiring artists and techno lovers to move across the world for years. We've got one word for you: Berghain. Go there and the rest of your dance music loving life will never be the same. The legend lives on. Other clubs like Watergate offer more intimate experiences that are still top-notch, but they're best for trips where you have more than one night (or day). The best clubbing in Berlin starts at 9am on a Sunday morning.



World's best nightlife cities
CNN - September 2014


Quote:
2. Berlin

If a city's mental health was determined by how many hours of the week its clubs weren't active, Berlin would be a lunatic in a straightjacket, repeatedly slamming its head against a padded wall. Witness: walking out of a venue at 9 a.m. on a Sunday to find that there's still a line to get in; a club with beds installed on its bottom floor so patrons can sleep without the inconvenience of having to leave; ceilings made completely of LED lights; a swimming pool next to the dance floor; bouncers with face tattoos.

Best place(s) to experience the big-club vibe: Berghain. If you can't get in (it's random), then Watergate.

Course
Germany: Photography and Design in a German Cultural Context


Quote:
Berlin was a nexus of 20th-century European culture, for better and for worse. Through Nationalism, Fascism-Nazism, Communism, and now Internationalism (the EU)—Berlin has been a symbol and often a victim of Europe’s idea of itself. In the 21st century, Berlin has become both the hope and the testing ground of what Europe will be in the next fifty years. We intend for this dialogue to expose our students—through the practice of photography and design—to the follies of the past and the promise of the future, while we train them in the discipline of developing a considered visual response to direct observation.

"Berlin Issue"
Zoo Magazine (founded by Bryan Adams)


Quote:
To celebrate ZOO’s anniversary, we will revisit our roots with The Berlin Issue. A city fraught with contemporary history, Berlin will star as the subject of an issue poignant to ZOO’s German heritage. To shine a spotlight on Berlin’s rich and restless cultural heart, the issue will celebrate the luminaries who have too been enchanted by the spell of the city, or fed into its historical past. Berlin’s cultural and political identity will be splayed out against a vast editorial spectrum. The Berlin Issue will stand as a rich tapestry, embellished by the remarkable artists who were as much sculpted by the city, as they were cultural sculptors themselves. Tendered here is a taste of things to come; a formidable force in blueprint, but inexorable when realized.

Berlin Voted World's 'Most Fun' City
Forbes


Quote:
As it celebrates the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, Germany’s capital has won ‘most fun’ status in a new survey.

Gathering data from global travel bloggers, tourist offices, seasoned globetrotters and travel websites, the GoEuro report (www.goeuro.com/fun-city-ranking) tipped Berlin over London, Paris and New York.

Among its many charms, the city has the cheapest beer of the top 25 locations ranked (€0.82/$1) and scores highly in concerts, clubs and adult entertainment.

Berlin is also among the ranked cities with no ‘last call’ for drinkers, whereas London and Paris shut their bars at 2.00am and New York calls time at 4.00am, according to the report.

The Big Apple was voted best for activities, while the UK capital has the best clubs and concerts, Tokyo is best for bars and shopping and Moscow the biggest spread of museums.

Berlin has really boomed in the last five years,” says Pablo Martinez at GoEuro. “When we looked back at the data from 2009, the city was in seventh place, behind London, Paris, New York, Barcelona, Rome and Istanbul.

Somber, hopeful ceremonies mark 25 years since the Berlin Wall fell
CNN


Quote:
Berlin now shines as a crown jewel of central Europe. It's a far cry from the city and the country that were bombed to ruins during World War II. And Germany is now the world's fourth largest economy and the driving market in the European Union.
Vibrant, Timid Berlin
New York Times


Quote:
A QUARTER-CENTURY ago today, the Berlin Wall fell, and since then this city has been on a roll. It’s one of the party capitals of the world and an affordable center for young artists and musicians, with enough layers of history to inspire a novelist for a few lifetimes. And its economy has benefited greatly from a growing start-up scene. In a country dominated by pleasant but boring cities, Berlin is Germany’s one truly cosmopolitan metropolis.

Many of these accomplishments are laid out in “Berlin Now: The City After the Wall,” a recent book by the German author Peter Schneider. He is right in saying that in recent decades no other city “has changed as much — and for the better — as Berlin,” lauding the sense of openness that has drawn immigrants, revived the shattered Jewish population and made the city a magnet for a creative class that is also luring cutting-edge businesses.
Berlin: a tale of two cities
Financial Times


Quote:
Everyone talks about the global artists, clubbers and wannabes colonising the world’s cheapest cosmopolitan city, but tech yuppies and the government caravan are fast pricing out the artists. Current Berlin chatter about house prices recalls Ireland circa 2003. Moreover, tourist hordes have replaced the old occupying armies. The greatest miracle wrought by capitalism and depoliticisation: Berlin now has polite shop assistants and taxi drivers.
Berlin’s Fractious Unity
NYT


Quote:
In short, Berlin is finding new ways to celebrate, to feel good about ourselves as Berliners, as Germans, no “east” or “west” or “foreigners” allowed. The fact that more and more people feel at home in Berlin today is more or less unwittingly supported by the diversity of our government, which was unthinkable in the years of the Cold War. For the past nine years, a woman from the former East Germany has been running the country from right here in Berlin; the federal president, also from the East, lives out of wedlock with his partner; the Ministry of Finance is overseen by a vigorous and highly respected man who happens to use a wheelchair; the Ministry of Defense by a woman with seven children; the longtime mayor of Berlin — now stepping down — is openly gay.
25 Years After the Wall Cracked Open, a New Berlin Is Emerging
National Geographic


Quote:
Awash in reminders of Germany's tragic past, the city is reinventing itself with a "good karma" vibe.
&
But for all its grievous history, Berlin might actually be a model, in embryo, of how to get the modern world right. It's the most unlikely of outcomes. Berlin—the city of trauma, of savagery and sorrow, an island for 40 years, no more connected to the rest of the continent than a space station—now, potentially, leading Europe into a civilized, open, generous future.
Hipster King Klaus Wowereit Rebuilt Berlin on Champagne and Anarchy
Business Insider

Quote:
Yet it serves as the perfect epigraph for modern Berlin, a city which has cast off the cloak of Cold War suspicion and reinvented itself as Europe's capital of cool.
In Berlin, life is a cabaret — again
Washington Post


Quote:
Twenty-five years after the fall of the Berlin Wall — an anniversary marked Sunday — this brooding metropolis has gone from being a Cold War capital to a magnet for untamed youth. Relatively cheap rents and a fiercely bohemian sensibility have transformed Berlin into what Prague was in the 1990s and Buenos Aires was in the 2000s — a beacon for penniless hipsters, international artists and merrymakers of every stripe.
&
And, surveys show, many are coming at least partly to party — or, better said, to partake in a spurt of decadence not seen since the cabaret days of the 1930s. The cathedral of cool is Berghain, a seething world of drugs and sex that boasts hours-long lines and a random door policy that strikes fear into the hearts of all who try to enter. But the city is overflowing with ever more new temples to youthful exuberance, liberation and counterculture.
&
But in recent years, Berlin has seen an explosion in so-called creative industries — ranging from art spaces to tech start-ups to advertising firms — that have capitalized on its status as a beacon for youth.
‘No one in Berlin at that time will ever forget those days’
Gulfnews

Quote:
The city of Berlin has a combative spirit. A never-say-die attitude, coupled with the will to prevail against the sternest of odds. These characteristics have been represented through various moments in European and world history, ancient and contemporary.
Berlin showcases the essence of the German spirit — ambition, progress, discovery and an ability to constantly rise above the limits set by others and by itself.

No. I'll live in some weird sexual dungeon in Berlin, but I have to make sure it has great Internet service.
Those places have thick walls a lot of times.
