The Berlin Monsterkabinett fuses machine art and performance.

Allow a trusted guide to lead you into the bizarre and labyrinthine world of the Monsterkabinett, where monstrous yet loveble creatures — in turn terrifying, tragic and comical — dance and sing to a compelling rhythm.

Say you’re wandering the streets of Berlin and you happen upon a vintage milk and cheese truck that has a long line of people queued up outside it. What would you expect them to be waiting to buy: Frankfurters? Sauerkraut? A flotilla’s worth of German beer?

Acoustic techno from Berlin trio Brandt Brauer Frick

Stuart McBratney Contributor

By Stuart McBratney in New Music on Saturday 15 October 2011

‘Acoustic techno’ sounds like an oxymoron. Yet this is exactly what German trio Brandt Brauer Frick produce. Those familiar with the pops and clicks of Berlin’s minimal sound will find their sound strangely familiar. For the rest, just sit back and enjoy the poker-faced musicality, it all its faux electro glory.

Minga Berlin socks

Zac Editor

By Zac in New Products on Wednesday 6 July 2011

Here’s a little something you may not know about me: I love a good pair of socks. A well designed set of socks is the ultimate luxury. It adds a small touch of colour and personality under a standard work attire. And a good set of socks can be a real mood lifter. It’s your little secret. So I was delighted to check out the awesome range from MINGA BERLIN. Now, these aren’t ordinary socks. They’re beautifully designed using the finest organic cotton. But it’s the colour palette and quality of MINGA BERLIN’s socks that really lifts you.

Johan Agebjorn Reader Find

By Johan Agebjorn in Cool Travel on Thursday 16 June 2011

If you come to Berlin, then I recommend this little shop, Dederon Design, specializing in stuff manufactured in, or inspired by, the former GDR (East Germany). Everything from ice cream cups to LP racks and toys. The woman running the shop even designs bags in some weird GDR-invented plastic material.

A celebration of Ignatz Bier in Berlin

The Urban Grocer Contributor

By The Urban Grocer in New Events on Saturday 5 March 2011

This is the story of Ignatz Nacher. In 1905, Nacher invented the pasteurization of beer, which was followed by the opening up of his own brewery in Berlin. And not just any brewery; here, the first production of the now famous Pilsner beer was celebrated. But, being German and Jewish, the Nazis claimed it for the regime and Nacher eventually died poor in Switzerland, while the brewery helped fund the war. It’s not a real happy story.
