Tomorrow's district

On the north and south banks of the Spree, Berlin applauds the street musicians on the Oberbaum Bridge, who will be rocking the big halls tomorrow. The district is a stage and home for creative people. This doesn't just apply to music.

Artists create their free spaces here, on the streets, in the backyards and studios. Berlin's start-up scene bustles around Moritzplatz and develops the ideas for tomorrow. The creative space is used jointly - for example for urban gardening in the Prinzessinnengärten. Or when great street food shops come together in Markthalle Neun.
