MAY IN BERLIN - WHAT TO DO AND WHAT TO SEE

May is just around the corner and we all know that’s the best time to explore Berlin. We prepared for you a list of our favorite events in May! Let us know which one is your favorite, so we can prepare for you an offer for a perfect stay in central located hostel in Berlin. 

1st MAY 

Why is Labor Day so special? As tripsavvy.com says : „Labor issues have whipped Berliners into a frenzied Erster Mai (May 1st) since the 1920s. Open demonstrations were banned in 1924, but the 1929 May 1st riots between communists and police resulted in the injury and death of around 100 people.” Since 2003, MyFest brings people together in one particular area of Berlin - Kreuzberg - to celebrate diverse and multicultural society of Berlin. Grab a beer from a local Spati and join the people dancing on the streets! If you are this day in Berlin you should check out area of Gorlitzer Park. These day other areas like Mitte or Prenzlauerberg will be completely quiet and empty - trust us, just go to Kreuzberg. 


Open Air Gallery 

On May 5th, Oberbaumbrucke turns into an art mile, where hundred artists shows their work (paintings, photographs and sculptures on a famous bridge between Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain. It is a perfect opportunity to get to know Berlin art scene better and chill by the river with a beer! That’s what we love out May!

International Museum Day 

The goal of this worldwide event is to raise awareness of Museums’ contributions to society and culture. In Berlin a lot of museums offer a free entry, interesting workshops and special guided tours on May 19th.
We would highly recommended you to visit Museum fur Naturkunde, which is located really close to our hostel. It is not only a great experience for family with kids, but for everyone who would like to know a little bit more about our environment. Beside that, we would recommend you as well visiting exhibition about Democracy in Deutsches Historisches Museum and attend free tour around Markisches Museum.
