Heja! We are back for you with some tips on what you can do at the moment. It still applies: Please stay healthy! Keep your distance to people, don’t stay to long in closed rooms with other people. Avoid physical contact. Wash your hands extremely often. Cough in the crook of your arm, etc., etc. Since the situation with the coronavirus is not yet completely gone, not all the entertainment possibilities are available. We have found though some for you! Check these out.
Tips for streamings
Fortunately there is the internet, where we can now visit many events online. No queues, no unfriendly people!
The famous Berlin Gorki stage is back! If you feel like theater, there is a weekly 24-hour theatre on Wednesday! Check it out. Here is the English website.
The Berliner Philharmonie now also offers streaming services. Even completely free of charge! It’s worth a visit and another good option for culture: the Louvre has digital tours on their websites. Very exciting.
Another super streaming portal is the arte united we stream. There you will find various offers, from Dancehall, to Hip Hop, electronic music, to various discussion talks. It is worthwhile to visit it in any case. You can simply read through the program, maybe you will find something good for you!
Tips for outside
In Hellerau is action again! Resident artist Gizem Aksu has been working in HELLERAU for several weeks and now presents her work in collaboration with the residents* of Hellerau in the Gartenstadt. You can experience a special walk where you can get to know the district better, view photographs and listen to additional sounds using the digital map. Visit Hellerau for a cultural delight. Check the website. There are always cool activities there!
Actually this weekend would be the Bunte Republik Neustadt. Here on the website you can find more information about it! It is an annual cultural festival in the Dresden Neustadt. Unfortunately it doesn’t take place because of Corona (and also because of rain). But maybe you will find some alternative programs during a walk through the Neustadt.
Do you wanna visit an exhibition? Then go to the German Hygiene Museum. There is the exhibition about Future Food. The exhibition “Food for the World of Tomorrow” confronts you with one of the greatest challenges of our time. In three chapters you follow the path of our food from the stable or field to the table. It deals with topics such as global distributive justice, vegetarian food or the power of the big food companies. And of course it is about food as an experience full of enjoyment, which creates identity and community.
Otherwise, the zoo is open again, and luckily you can avoid other people there very well. By the way: There is a new Humboldt penguin! Go and have a look. It’s worth it.
