Berlin remains to be defiantly Berlin, with Covid officlally gone and the city blossoming once again. Of course, that is a very ‘Berlin’ sort of blossoming, which means grit and character and excitement and personality in spades. The museums and galleries are open again, so make up for lost time and gorge yourself on all the culture your heart can take. The Gropius Bau, Deutsches Historisches Museum and sparkly new Humboldt Museum have plenty to keep culture vultures occupied, while there is also plenty going on around the city. This is Berlin, after all.
The weather in Berlin is doing its typical autumn thing, which means teasing us with moments of gorgeous sunshine ahead of another long winter. Still, winter brings its own charms, so we shan’t grumble too much. It remains to be seen what will happen with the Christmas markets and all the rest, but rest assured we’ll be on top of it. And if we have to sit outside in the snow with that beer in Neukölln then so be it, so be it. Yes, the pandemic is still going on, so stay safe, get vaccinated, get that mask over your dang nose and look after each other.
