Updated: 2 May 2016
There’s been enough signs of spring lurking lately that this month it only seems fair that the monthly guide has a smattering of outside events to go with the usual huddle-inside-from-the-cold too. This monthly, curious Berliners will find food, theater, music and more as the Hauptstadt spreads its wings and remembers that there’s more to life than short days and long nights.
