The Berlinale is for Germany what the Oscars are for Hollywood. Stars and starlets, glitter and glamour, culture and commerce at a festival whose line-up speaks for itself. Also well worth a visit is documenta 13 in Kassel, the world's premier exhibition of contemporary art. It expands the horizons of art appreciation every five years and next takes place in 2012. These are just two of a multitude of unmissable events in Germany.
