Berlin, you‘re so wonderful! No other metropolitan city in the world mixes the old with the new in such an exciting way as Berlin right now. No other place else has so many contrasting cultures from all over the world converging in one place as they do in the German capital. From hipster hype in Neukölln, the creative start-up scene in Mitte or the middle-class aura of Charlottenburg – the world-famous Berlin air seems to boast more creative and unique energy these days than anywhere else.
And why? Possibly because the city on the river Spree is such a fertile breeding ground, where ideas flourish across the worlds of art, culture, fashion or design. From Gallery Weekend, Fashion Week with its world-famous fashion shows Bread & Butter and Premium to the Berlin Music Festival, Carnival of Cultures or the international Design Festival DMY –the city never stands still. Berlin was deservedly declared the first European UNESCO CITY OF DESIGN in 2006.
