Berlin In Your Pocket city guide

Berlin In Your Pocket city guide
Eight years ago, in 2006, Germany had the honour of hosting the World Cup football matches, and what a nation-changing spectacle it was. This year the tournament takes place in Brazil, and as the German team has a good chance of making it quite far, there will be little respite from football madness in Berlin this summer. On game nights, expect the bars to be packed with anxious viewers, the pavement benches in front of the screens at Kreuzberg's Späti all-night shops to be crowded as well. 

There's more fun to be had on Berlin's streets; in June the huge Karneval der Kulturen parade rolls through Kreuzberg, and the Gay Pride festival, Christopher Street Parade and Fete de la Musique also all take place within a few weeks of each other. 

Thankfully there are many places to escape the parties, with Berlin's parks at their best in June and July, and several museums putting on excellent exhibitions this year; see our Berlin events listings for more.

Whatever you do this summer, don't hesitate to email us your comments and suggestions at Enjoy Berlin.
