When you're young and you are in Berlin it's not usually the museums
you're looking after - though there are some very interesting ones. Art
is on the streets, everywhere you turn your gaze, especially on the
eastern side of the city. But then the truth is: if you get stuck in a
club, you'll end up having no time left for conventional tourism.
It’s not a out if it doesn’t end with the shining
bright upon your pale face. That’s Berlin for you: a lot of weird fun.
It can seem to be too much fun if your visiting for the first time and
you are not really used to going to a club at 2 am to come out of it at 2
pm. You end up asking yourself you did it, and then there’s the
question of the music, which is really a thing for connaisseures only;
still, you loved it even when you couldn’t feel your leg anymore.
night scene is wild.
Either you end up in a truly underground club such
as the Golden Gate, or in a smoky bar to enjoy a couple of beers
watching a contemporary art performance. The city swarms with artists,
and that’s just something you can’t get anywhere else. Art is everywhere
on the outside where the rain is drizzling, and after a good ten hours
worth of dancing there’s nothing like walking around Berlin’s
ever-changing landscape and finding yourself face to face with Bansky,
Blu, or El Bocho. It’s fun and culture as postmodern as they can get .
It’s the trip.
