History and culture in Berlin

50 years after President John F. Kennedy delivered his famous "Ich bin ein Berliner" speech to a crowd of hundreds of thousands on 26 June 1963, a wide range of events are being staged in Berlin between 30 April and 29 June 2013 to commemorate the impact of his immortal words on the city's history. The diverse programme includes exhibitions, bus tours and special guided tours, plus talks given by those who were there to hear JFK speak.

Lovers of art and culture will be pleased to see Berlin's popular Gallery Art Weekend is taking place between 26 and 28 April 2013. A selection of galleries will be opening their doors and inviting visitors to take part in this celebration of creativity and culture.
