Two Events this Saturday: Lange Nacht der Museen and Torstraßen Festival
By Catherine J. Fehre . August 31, 2013
Lange Nacht der Museen (Long Night of Museums) is a huge Berlin event, with about 95 museums keeping their doors open till well into the night. Visitors and locals alike can travel throughout the city and visit a variety of museums to see collections, exhibitions, tours, and special programs.
The theme is “Junge Wilde und Alte Meister.” Different museums will greet you with either young and old couples from mythology, stories of family life in Berlin’s upper classes and royal court, or famous music hits from various generations.
For it’s third year, the Torstraßen Festival will be on and around Torstraße in Mitte at multiple venues, cafés, shops, and bars. There will be a diverse showcase of performances and several genres of music to fit everyone’s tastes.
The festival is meant to bring music and culture into the neighborhood, keeping the prices low, so everyone can have access and enjoy the musicians’ performances. They mix the old with the new in an attempt to bring the neighborhood together.
And if you can’t decide, you could always budget your time and go to both!
