ightness, transparency and joy – these words could stand as the motto for the Carnival of Cultures, which is celebrated every year on Whit weekend in Berlin’s Kreuzberg district and attracts around one million visitors annually to the capital (page 46). It’s a big, bright festival that should not be missed. It is the expression of a new Berlin where people of different nationalities and religions feel at home, like the many Berliners of the Jewish faith who today live on the River Spree. Join us for the Jewish Film Festival, which is taking place in Berlin and Potsdam until the 12th May, visit the Kosher Classroom, a restaurant serving the finest cuisine in a former Jewish girls’ school, or explore places where the old and new Jewish Berlin intersect (page 36). Of course, MARCO POLO Berliner has many more tips ready for you once again: the most exciting premieres, the most interesting exhibitions and the best shopping hotspots in the city.

Typical Berlin

My Berlin Tips

Shadowvincent

Every city has its own little rules and peculiarit ies. Berlin, too. There are a couple of things that ar e typical of the German ca pital – and we’ve compi led a list of them just for you:

Johannes Bannert works as Concierge at the Grand Hotel Esplanade. He knows all the best places in the city.

Broiler

What has to be seen in Berlin? Kurfürstendamm with the KaDeWe department store and huge range of small cafes, restaurants, theatres and musical stages.

Broiler was the name often given to roast or fried chicken sold in road-side snackbars, particularly in the GDR. If a whole portion of Broiler will be too much then ordering half of one is an option.

What is the question that you are asked most often? Where was the Wall and where is the best place to find out about its history?

GDR-Restaurant Domklause Daily from 10 a.m. | KarlLiebknecht-Str. 1 | Mitte | www. ddr-restaurant.de | S Hackescher Markt, U/S Alexanderplatz

And what do you reply? Walk along the border strip from Potsdamer Platz through the Brandenburg Gate to Checkpoint Charlie. These are the best three points to gain a better understanding of its history.

Hühnerhaus Daily 9 a.m.–1 a.m. | Görlitzerstr. 1 | www.hühnerhaus.com | U1 Görlitzer Bahnhof

What has been your most difficult task for a guest so far? I had to organize 30 kg of dry ice within 24 hours for a music video. The problem: the dry ice had to be brought on a yacht and the yacht was in the Croatian port of Split. A good one hundred phone calls later and with a little luck, the dry ice was brought by the yacht and provided for the music video.

Typical streetlight in East Berlin

Berlin is Dog City Berlin is second only to Manhattan in terms of its number of dogs. Canines are allowed on the German capita l’s public transport and the city has no rules about keeping them on a lea sh. Berlin even has dedica ted dog parks. Nevertheles s, owners must pick up what their fourlegged friends leave beh ind – although this regulation isn’t always obeyed.

And finally an insider tip... The Butcher’s Bar in Torstraße! It‘s disguised as a currywurst and kebab shop - you have to go into the toilet and look for the entrance through an old, red British telephone box to get into the bar.

Marco Polo Berliner | May 2013


On 26th June it will be 50 years since John F. Kennedy gave his famous „Ich bin ein Berliner“ speech in front of the Schöneberg Town Hall. At that time in the summer of 1963 the transatlantic relationship was fairly strained. Only two years earlier, the East German head of state Walter Ulbricht had ordered the building of the wall across Berlin. From the perspective of the West Berlin and Bonn politicians, the Americans did not do enough to impede the division of the city. Yet enthusiastic citizens cheered Kennedy’s speech about freedom. On this historic anniversary, various institutions are organising a programme that will once more recall the importance of the President‘s visit.

My Favourite Exhibition Kirsten Niemann studied history of art and gets excited about good exhibitions.

George Widener

M

ost people thought he was a clown. He saw himself as a braggart, a spendthrift, an instigator. The painter, photographer and installation and performance artist was also a drinker, dancer, musician and writer. He did everything to excess, which in 1997 at just 43 years of age cost him his life. On 25th February Martin Kippenberger would have been 60 years old.

“I was born as the second son of the second marriage on the second Thursday in the second month of the second decade in the second half of the last century of the second millennium” - thus wrote George Widener on a self-portrait. From childhood

the 51-year-old was fascinated by numbers and data; it was accomplishing everyday tasks that he found problematic. As part of the “Secret Universe” series, the number junkie’s first solo European show is on now at the Hamburger Bahnhof. Widener’s work shows maps and sketches on scraps of paper, executed with a meticulous hand. Fortunately for him, the artist from Kentucky has been diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, a form of autism. It means he no longer has to live alone with savant syndrome, or to be seen by others as crazy. Anyway, weren’t most of the major artists kind of crazy?

To mark this occasion, the Hamburger Bahnhof has dedicated a major exhibition to “Kippi” that, as well as showing his works which oscillate between subversion and irony, also gives you the chance to view the artist as a human being.

Both artists drew from the intellectual history of shared and sometimes esoteric sources, and at the same time encouraged each other. In chronological order and in five major stages, the exhibition shows key works by Klee and Itten. The focus is on their artistic approaches to colour: colour and esotericism, colour aura, colour harmony, colour and abstraction, colour and nature, and division of colour.

This year they will again present a colourful and lively 70 nation community, who together organise both the street parade and street festival. With a staggering 79 groups, 4000 participants and 67 floats, everyone will be outfitted in either their country’s traditional dress or imaginative costumes and move through the streets of Kreuzberg and Neukölln, presenting their vision of the dynamic and multicultural melting pot that is Berlin.

nival, this event has a spirit of integration with which people of any age and background can identify. In previous years, however, the event organisers were worried about whether it would happen at all; many of the groups who completely self-financed their participation as well as the floats, ran out of money and subsidies were often cut. This Whitsun, however, when the beautifully decorated floats glide past filled with people drumming and dancing madly, you won’t sense any worry. It’s a day of celebration. Time and again the participants demonstrate their spectacular creativity, most likely wanting to be the ones to grab the coveted prize for the best float.

“The Carnival of Cultures developed against the backdrop of Berlin’s growing internationality and the resulting influx of immigrants from all areas of the world.” NADJA MAU

The opening ceremony traditionally starts at the Hermannplatz in Neukölln. This is where the floats commence on their predestined route.

It is somehow rather typical of Berlin that the two designers who chose the forceful-sounding name of “Icke Berlin” (“Icke” being the word for ‘I’ in the Berlin dialect) for their label were not actually born in the city. Barbara Kristen comes from the Black Forest, while Luisella Ströbele comes from the Swabian region. However, the creations they come up with in their Kreuzberg shop-come -workshop most definitely have a touch of the spirit and sassy attitude for which Berlin is famous. Their dresses, skirts, blouses and T-shirts are characterised not only by the high-quality materials used. Each piece also allows the buyer to make a cheerful statement, whether it’s through chair-o-planes swinging on skirts, white hares adorning T-shirts or cows grazing on waistcoats. A new collection is released twice yearly: the Summer 2013 range is the playful “Bademeister”.

hether they’re large chains or traditional retailers, jewellers have always been found on the street of luxury that is Friedrichstraße. Wempe Berlin, for example, has been selling high-quality watches and pieces of jewellery for over 130 years. This long-established company is known worldwide and even has a branch on Fifth Avenue in New York. In Berlin, Wempe has a total of three stores: one on Friedrichstraße and two on Kurfürstendamm (street numbers 184 and 215). Thomas Sabo is loved by VIPs both in Germany and abroad. With a skull and crossbones on the walls, this shop on Friedrichstraße is a real tribute to the world associated with this rockerchic label. Needless to say, a Swarowski store can also be found on the street.

XV. Potsdamer Schlössernacht Eine Nacht voller Zauber und Poesie

Neues Palais, Chinesisches Haus, Sizilianischer und Nordischer Garten, Römische Bäder und Orangerie: Schon die Namen lassen die besondere Magie des Sehnsuchtsortes Sanssouci erahnen. Wie wäre es erst, in der Zeit zurück zu reisen, um den Zauber dieser einzigartigen Kulturlandschaft intensiv und mit allen Sinnen zu spüren? Nur einmal im Jahr erwacht das UNESCO-Welterbe vor den Toren Berlins auf solch wunderbare Weise zum Leben. Am 17. August 2013 ist es endlich wieder so weit: Der beeindruckend illuminierte Park, prachtvolle Säle und zahllose romantische Winkel laden dazu ein, diese zauberhafte Nacht zu genießen. Weit mehr als vierhundert Mitwirkende machen die XV. Potsdamer Schlössernacht mit Schauspiel und Tanz, mit Lesungen und Musik zu einem großen Fest der Fantasie. Erstmals auf der Potsdamer Schlössernacht lädt Jocelyn B. Smith mit dem Berlin Jazz Orchestra unter der Leitung von Marc Secara auf der Bühne am Neuen Palais (Mopke) zu einer Reise durch die bekanntesten Love-Songs aller Zeiten ein. In dieser traumhaften Kulisse hören die Gäste die schönsten Liebeslieder der Jazz- und Popmusik. Beschwingt, emotional und voller Sinnlichkeit vermitteln Rondo Vienna & Barbara Helfgott in diesem Jahr auf der Bühne am Neuen Palais (Mopke) einen erfrischenden Zugang zu vermeintlich gegensätzlichen Musikstilen – von der Klassik bis zum Pop. Ein unverwechselbarer Klang und der sprich-

wörtliche Wiener Esprit des renommierten Damen-Ensembles lassen ihre Auftritte zu einer Herzensangelegenheit mit Seele, und damit zu einem unvergesslichen Erlebnis werden. Die Bildergalerie, in der Friedrich der Große zahlreiche Gemälde namhafter Meister zusammen gebracht hat, feiert in diesem Jahr ihren 250. Geburtstag. Und natürlich, hinter jedem Gemälde steckt eine Geschichte, eine wahre oder auch eine angedichtete, manchmal eine belanglose, aber oft eine aufregende. Und genau um diese Geschichten geht es in „… nur eine Handvoll Bilder“ unter der Regie von Helmut Schulze auf der Maulbeerallee. Die männlichen Gäste können sich am Neuen Palais (Gartenseite) unter Beweis stellen und an einer KavalierTour teilnehmen. Denn – als Kavalier wird man nicht geboren, erstklassige Bildung und vielfältige Erfahrungen machen aus einem Mann einen Kavalier. Das Hoftheater Schau und Spiel bietet eine praktische Ausbildung zum Kavalier an. So wie die Söhne des europäischen Adels zur Vervollständigung ihrer Ausbildung auf die Grand Tour geschickt wurden, durchlaufen die Gäste einen Parcours mit ganz unterschiedlichen Herausforderungen. Das königliche Vergnügen zur nächtlichen Stunde krönen Sonderführungen hinter die Kulissen der Residenzen, ein exquisites kulinarisches Angebot und das traditionelle Musikfeuerwerk vor dem Neuen Palais.

Für die diesjährige Schlössernacht gibt es noch Tickets! Potsdamer Schlössernacht am 17. August 2013 im Park Sanssouci Potsdam Tickets und Infos: www.potsdamer-schloessernacht.de, www.ticketonline.com, www.tixoo.com, www.eventim.de, 0 18 05 / 44 70 und an den Vorverkaufskassen

Artistic and everyday objects, photographs, letters, interactive displays and media stations tell of Jewish culture in Germany. Particularly fascinating is the architecture of Daniel Libeskind. Amongst other remarkable works is “Voids”, a series of spaces inside buildings. In “Memory Void”, only one visitor is allowed to enter, you can find the installation “Shalechet - Fallen Leaves” by Menashe Kadishman. It consists of thousands of metallic leaves given faces. Whoever runs over it makes a noise - and thus the people murdered in the Holocaust are given back their voices.

In need of enchanting melodies from Eastern Europe? If you always wanted to hear the sounds of Romania’s Sirba, Freylachs and Shers from Moldavia and Bukovina, the Ukraine’s Kolomeykes or Horas from Bessarabia, then on Whit Sunday take yourself to see the seven-member Klezmer band in their concert named “Dance in the Garden of Eden”. The concept works like this: a lead dancer gives the crowd a few instructions and away they go! How you dance doesn’t matter, whether alone, in pairs or in a circle,stylish or awkward. The only thing that matters is having fun. According to their motto: Klezmer stands for dancing and having fun!

Holocaust, unforgotten

By the late 80s the idea of building a memorial to the Jews of Europe to act as a reminder of the Holocaust had begun to take root. Bringing this idea to fruition would take another ten years. Peter Eisenman’s wonderful design depicts a field with 2,700 wave-shaped stones laid out like grave stones. Underneath the field an “Information Centre” complements the memorial. Here an exhibition documents the destruction of the Jews by the Nazis.

Read and listen

Founded in 1898, the Library of the Jewish community in Berlin was closed by the Nazi regime. Around 100,000 books were lost in the war. In 1959, in the western Berlin Fasanenstraße, work began on its reconstruction. Volumes were collected on Jewish religion, history and culture. In 1989 after the unification, the Library founded in 1974 in Mitte was relocated here. Today, 80,000 media sources can be found in the house, including books, magazines, audiovisual media and microfilms on religion and research in different languages.

Joerg Reichardt

T

he Magic Flute is the most performed German opera of all time. Barry Kosky has staged it in a rather special way: together with the British theatre company 1927, he has created from the original a brilliant mix of silent film, animated film and cabaret of the Weimar Republic. He also seems influenced by David Lynch‘s imagery and the Brothers Grimm. Perhaps

Since 1892 this building has played host to the most controversial directors. From Erwin Piscator in the 1920s to Castorf and Schlingensief in the 1990s. The technology and sometimes shocking scenarios particularly appeal to a young audience. it was also the stage for the 1989 political revolution.

yz acting – the Berlin

way – in a little medieval community centre. Up to 50 guests sing, dance and act for all they’re worth in a small group in the basement of the Memorial Library. after the shows, it’s well worth taking a stroll through the nikolaiviertel area.

The non-profit Berliner KinderTheater (Berlin Children’s Theatre in English) has been dealing with the issues faced by children since 1986. To do so, it draws on material from the world of international children’s literature. Professional actors perform in front of large, family-friendly rows of seating in summer and winter alike. Yet the plays are always educational. The BKT also offers support for drama teachers upon request. in summer, the BKT performs on the open-air stage at Spandau Citadel, while in winter it moves to Fontane House in the Märkisches Viertel.

n the indie rock scene of the late ‘80s there were people who didn‘t shy away from chaos and positively revelled in disorder. Jon Spencer from New York City is someone who knows how things were back then. He took garage rock, blues and punk, broke them into pieces and brought them together in new ways with a bang. In 1990 Spencer

or 20 years, Stephen and Katharina have been married, and have been friends for just as long with Paul and his other half. But Paul has just separated from his wife. When he shows up to a dinner with his new, much younger girlfriend, there’s still anger in the air. After Katharina provokes a scene with Paul because of his going off the rails, many surprises come to light which jeopardise their long

friendship and even Katharina‘s own marriage. The piece „Pairings“ is about a lottery win, private secrets and friendships that are put to the test. And many things are revealed that were previously hidden. A great comedy with four fantastic actors.

lese-café’s cerebral and culinary delights Yes, you get them in Berlin too, those rainy afternoons when you’d quite happily send the dog out to walk itself. But on those days you can find a few perfect places to hole up for an enjoyable few hours, browsing books with a tea or coffee. Reading cafes are popular with many people. You can keep to yourself with your book, but without being completely alone. And those who seek society can find like-minded individuals there more quickly than elsewhere. As well as the bookshelves brimming with books, Lesecafés (which means reading café in German) await their guests with a small range of hot and cold drinks, sweet and savoury baked goods, and sometimes also hot snacks. Readings also often take place.

Restaurants No Limits: Berlin Moscow

IN THESE CAFES AND RESTAURANTS THE FIRST MEAL OF THE DAY IS A REAL PLEASURE

A French-born chef of Portuguese descent serves up Russian dishes with an international flavour on Berlin’s most famous boulevard

Breakfast

A

new restaurant by the name of „Berlin Moscow“ has opened up on Unter den Linden: not an everyday occurrence on this, the most well known of Berlin’s boulevards. For that reason alone, everybody was quite curious as to what sort of big culinary project was hiding behind the 60 metre long, two-storey glass façade. Whatever was to be found, you certainly couldn’t get closer to the Muscovites anywhere else here in Berlin, as the restaurant is located directly across from the embassy of the Russian Federation. But does this proximity pay dividends on the diners’ plates? According to Emmanuel Soares, the restaurant’s well-travelled chef born in France with Portuguese roots, the food is “light, fresh and clear in structure”. In other words, it’s just about the exact opposite of what Russian mothers serve their children. And yet, the menu includes such Russian favourites as borscht and solyanka, pelmeni and blini, classic Soares refashioned with a modern flair, thereby giving the dishes the desired lightness.
