Berlin Calendar: Events in Berlin

What’s on in Berlin? Things to do while in Berlin.

On this page i compiled a list of current and upcoming events you may want to attend while you’re in Berlin. I only list events that I personally find interesting and that are happening basically every year – such as fairs and festivals. For other events such as parties and concerts I would recommend the database of TIP-Berlin.
