Isola dei musei di Berlino

Lo straordinario complesso dell'isola dei musei di Berlino include cinque edifici a forma di tempio che custodiscono preziosi tesori che raccontano 6.000 anni di storia dell'umanità. Dichiarata patrimonio dell'UNESCO nel 1999, l'isola dei musei si trova nel cuore del centro storico di Berlino ed è il fiore all'occhiello del panorama museale delle città, nonché il progetto di investimento culturale più grande d'Europa.

Uno storico scozzese di nome John Strang scrisse che per dare anche solo un'occhiata di sfuggita ai tesori artistici del museo di Berlino ci sarebbero volute giornate intere. E questo quando sull'isola della Sprea sorgeva solo un edificio: era l'Altes Museum, ovvero il primo museo pubblico della Prussia costruito nel 1830 su progetto di Karl Friedrich Schinkel. Nel 1859 seguì il Neues Museum, nel 1876 l'Alte Nationalgalerie, nel 1904 il Bode-Museum e nel 1930 il Pergamonmuseum. Gli edifici dell'isola dei musei espongono in prima linea opere artistiche del XIX secolo e tesori archeologici come la Porta di Ishtar, l'altare di Pergamo, porta del mercato di Mileto, il busto di Nefertiti e il Cappello d'oro di Berlino. Dopo la riunificazione si iniziò a ricomporre le collezioni che erano rimaste divise tra Berlino Est e Ovest. Anche gli oggetti che erano stati trasportati in depositi esterni in seguito ai danneggiamenti del periodo bellico sono stati riportati negli spazi espositivi originali. Il Neues Museum rimase una rovina per circa 60 anni, finché nel 2003 non è stato sottoposto a una profonda opera di restauro sotto la guida del celebre architetto britannico David Chipperfield. La galleria James Simon è il nuovo edificio che fungerà da ingresso per l'intera isola dei musei e una passeggiata archeologica collegherà tra loro diversi edifici seguendo un filo spaziale e tematico consentendo ai visitatori di accedere a un panorama straordinario delle culture mondiali.

Che cosa dicono altri turisti da tutto il mondo

Shopping in the city

I am continuing my little Berlin report. We planned to go shopping and sightseeing at the weekend with Nóri. Unfortunately, shops in Germany are closed on Sundays so we had to do the shopping part on Saturday... We were walking in the streets in the city centre in the morning and we went into interesting design stores when we spotted them. I like talking to the locals because a lot of nice memories come back in connection with Germany. I was 11 years old when I first spent a longer period of time in summer at a German family. It is funny to think back that I could hardly understand anything from what they were trying to tell me, I was so embarrassed that I answered "Ja" to everything... :) We left the shopping centres to the afternoon where we could really enjoy our shopping mania. We found a Primark shop here, too, well known from London... :) If you ever enter this shop, you will surely leave with more than one shopping bag. :) The sales were still on which meant that we bought almost everything for 3 or 5 Euros. It was the earthly heaven itself, I could hardly stop myself from putting the whole store into my basket. By the end of the day, we got totally exhausted and couldn't wait to relax after these two long days... X x Festy

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin - Studio Kaprol fashion show and backstage

I couldn't wait for the second fashion show on Friday because the marketing person of Studio Kaprol contacted me a few weeks ago to ask us to take some photos of their backstage and post them on our blogs. It was a great experience for me to get a glimpse again behind the scenes of an international fashion week. It had only happened to me once on my first fashion week in New York. Then, the series of pleasures continued as we got private VIP seats to the second row among journalists and celebrities from Berlin. I was extremely happy to be able to watch this special show from such proximity. It started with an art movie and then the models walked on the runway in an unusual way, wandering around and staying on the stage. There were more and more of them up there, then they got together and finally brought the designer forward. I found it a really good idea to present these loose street wear clothes in such a creative way. X x Festy

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin - Marina Hoermanseder fashion show

I thought that Friday is also worth mentioning and I should make a post about the fashion shows, too. We received standing tickets for Marina Hoermanseder's show so we could see the happenings from upstairs with Nóri. It was ideal to take photos from there because we could see the whole area. I love the feeling when the atmosphere of the fashion week catches me and I watch the creations of different designers with excitement. Marina Hoermanseder, Austrian designer, created an extravagant collection with the patterns of medical aids in the clothes. It was interesting to see a kind of knee machine on a fashion show that I had to wear after my sport accident... xo, Festy

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin

So many things have happened during a day, it seems that we have been here in Berlin for a week already. We left Budapest in the morning with Nóri Oravecz and we landed in Germany at noon. Our accommodation is in the city centre so we can easily reach everything within 15 minutes. I was really excited because I had never been to Berlin Fashion Week before so I couldn't wait to sit on the shows and learn about German fashion. We were invited to two fashion shows yesterday. At first, we checked the creations of a talented Austrian designer, Marina Hoermanseder. Then, we had the opportunity to look at the backstage of Studio Kaprol, it was the first time I had received a VIP ticket on an international fashion event. We could watch the fashion show from the second row which is a fantastic feeling for a fashion blogger. :) We got an invitation to the closing party at night where we got to know German and Austrian journalists and designers. It was adventurous to get to the party... It took almost an hour to find one of the old factory sites of East-Berlin. The place had a special atmosphere with a ruined brick building, wall paintings and railways tracks. Finally, we found a huge building like a hangar where masked hostesses were welcoming the guests at the end of the red carpet. We entered a large room where the closing ceremony took place. We talked to a lot of fashion professionals, everybody was friendly and kind to us. One of the great advantages of Berlin is that the underground operates all night so you can get home very easily even after midnight. X x Festy

West-Berlin

West-Berlin is the best!

During our last day at Berlin we had a little sightseeing around the city with a hopp on hopp of bus. It was great to see all the statues and monuments all over the city, and the squares and of course Potsdamers Platz again. After that tour we shortly started to recognize the places what we have been visited so far, and the distance between them. For us our tour was ended at West-Berlin, where we checked the place where we had party on Friday night, we made some photos in front of the graffiti walls, and finally found our best restaurant experience ever! Sunday Brunch for 1O euros, in a restaurant called Via Nova, with an extremely nice stuff and food of course! If you have time to go there, visit them, you're gonna love it! Berlin, we love you, and it was so good to spend 3 days there! :) See you soon again. Nora

shopping at Berlin

After our exciting Friday on Saturday we had a little shopping tour around Berlin. We've started our tour in the street, where you can find Boconcept, and after we visited the high category brands as well, where we met with the personal shopper of Sarah Connor. The last station of our shopping tour was Primark, where we bought a bunch of new stuff for us, where we were very excited about the sale. You need to try Primark, than it's a good thing to visit Potsdamer Platz and drink a coffee in Carac Gourmet, you won't forget that view! If you still want to go and have a big walk, just visit the Sony center, where you can have dinner, and you can see on the screen all of the famous celebrities, who has been visited the city so far. Just check Berlin. It can't be a mistake.

Oravecz Nóra

We've just got the invitation some weeks ago for BFW, we were so excited! I have really good memories from my latest visit, and I was hoping that someday I can come back. And now I brought with me my fashion blogger friend, Festy as well. Yesterday we saw 2 fashion shows, the last one was my favourite one! It was so energetic and cool, nobody could take his eyes off from them! :) During the night we had a great party, because we were invited to the closing party of the BFW. We got know one of the journalists of Bild.de magazine, he was very nice, we had a short chat with him. Today we were shopping for hours, tomorrow I am going to tell more about that - what we visited ,where we had the shopping tour, etc. :) Tomorrow we are going to have our Big Bus Tour, so I can come back with great photos about the city! Stay Tuned! Nora
