What's On In Berlin In July

Picture of Brienne Pierce
Updated: 10 October 2016
Well, we’re in the trenches of it – summer that is. As the weather decides to do a pendulum swing from early spring to too-hot-to-handle, we’ve come up with ways to deal with every temperature on the spectrum this July. For those who haven’t sprung for a Southern France holiday and are duking it out in the Hauptstadt, fear not, as there are plenty of activities to give your friends who are traipsing St.Tropez some serious FOMO. This month, think of outdoor movies, open-air parties too important to be Instagrammed, beer week, food festivals, and just about everything in between. You’re not going to want to miss one second of Berlin this July.
