Boredom is something you never have to worry about when visiting the German capital - there's always something to do. Here's a taste for early 2013.
January kicks off with Berlin Fashion Week from the 15th to the 20th of January. A great excuse to dress your self up, drink cocktails and rub shoulders with Berlin's fashion elite.
Attention all film buffs; The "Berlinale" International Film Festival is showing over 400 films from the 7th to the 17th of February. A great way to spend a cold winter's day without missing out on soaking up some culture.
MaerzMusik is a contemporary music festival held from the 15th until the 24th of March. The program generally comes out in late January, so keep checking for updates if you are going to be around over the 10 days.
