Lifestyle, culture and leisure
O que faz Berlim ser diferente de outras metrópoles? Primeiramente, os próprios berlinenses, cujo jeito áspero, mas também cordial, transmite a atmosfera especial dessa cidade. Naturalmente, há também uma incrível variedade de atrações que retratam tanto o otimismo e a dinâmica da vida contemporânea, como a história e os grandes dramas do século XX.
Quem pensa em Berlim costuma lembrar automaticamente da Porta de Brandemburgo, o Brandenburger Tor, provavelmente a obra mais famosa da capital. Durante décadas, ele foi símbolo da separação, mas também centro de uma metrópole sempre dinâmica, repleta de novas ideias e impulsos, de arte, cultura e criatividade. O Kurfürstendamm, sinônimo de avenida urbana elegante, a loja Kaufhaus des Westens, mais conhecida como KaDeWe, butiques modernas e galerias requintadas caracterizam o lado ocidental da cidade, assim como os maravilhosos bairros burgueses e, é claro, a famosa vida noturna berlinense. O que não pode faltar nela é uma noite no Friedrichstadt-Palast, o maior teatro de variedades da Alemanha, que produziu, dizem, o show mais caro e mais espetacular de todos os tempos: SHOW ME. Puro luxo, uma explosão de luz, cores, figurinos e efeitos. O bairro onde se encontra o centro do governo sem dúvida tem também uma atmosfera cosmopolita, que se estende desde a Porta de Brandemburgo e do vizinho Reichstag, em direção ao leste. Um lugar perfeito para a paz e a liberdade – ao contrário da época em que Berlim foi palco de crimes inacreditavelmente atrozes. O monumento aos judeus assassinados na Europa, projeto do arquiteto nova-iorquino Peter Eisenman nas imediações da Porta de Brandemburgo, mantém viva essa lembrança, assim como o memorial Topografia do Terror na antiga sede da polícia secreta nazista, a Gestapo.
Na direção de Berlim Ocidental, a grande avenida de Berlim, Unter den Linden, estende-se até a praça Alexanderplatz, passando pelo patrimônio mundial da Ilha dos Museus, a Museumsinsel, pela Catedral de Berlim, pela Neue Wache e a barroca Zeughaus, que hoje abriga o Museu Histórico Alemão. O passeio continua até a Torre de Televisão, a Fernsehturm, que até hoje é a mais alta construção da Alemanha. A vista de Berlim dali até muito depois de Brandemburgo é literalmente um dos pontos altos de uma visita à cidade. A pouca distância dali fica o Gendarmenmarkt, tido como o lugar mais bonito de Berlim, formando um conjunto de rara elegância e grandeza com a Catedral Alemã (Deutscher Dom), a Catedral Francesa (Französischer Dom) e a sala de concertos Konzerthaus. Menos imponente, mas em compensação extremamente descontraída, leve e relaxante, é a atmosfera dos pátios conhecidos como Hackesche Höfe, também no centro de Berlim - a maior área fechada de pátios na Alemanha e protegida como patrimônio histórico desde 1977. O bairro revive um verdadeiro pedaço da Berlim antiga, reunindo uma mistura variada de galerias de arte, cinemas, teatros e teatros de revista, bares, restaurantes e bistrôs, lojinhas simpáticas e lojas de grandes marcas. Aqui é possível sentir ainda mais de perto o charme criativo que hoje, quase 25 anos após a queda do muro, caracteriza Berlim talvez ainda mais do que outras metrópoles. O ateliê da Alemanha, cidade onde tudo acontece, centro da moda, do design, da música: o dinamismo e otimismo da cidade reunificada foram algo incomparável – e continuam sendo até hoje. Centenas de ateliês nasceram em pátios internos, a arte tomou conta das ruas, das paredes das casas, de bairros inteiros. E as ruínas do muro, é claro, que formam uma espécie de enciclopédia da "street art" com a East Side Galley entre a ponte Oberbaumbrücke e a estação Ostbahnhof. Hoje, Kreuzberg e Prenzlauer Berg, Neukölln e Wedding são uma espécie de referência para mais de 20.000 artistas plásticos; eles influenciam a atmosfera e o ambiente da região tornando a cidade um pólo que atrai tanto artistas alternativos como os de sucesso. Mergulhe nesse universo que inspira, seduz e fascina. E conheça a gente de Berlim – além de todas as atrações turísticas, talvez a melhor razão para visitar essa cidade fantástica. E voltar sempre.

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 FestyLeia mais »
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 FestyLeia mais »
Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin
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, FestyLeia mais »
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 FestyLeia mais »
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. NoraLeia mais »
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.Leia mais »
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! NoraLeia mais »
