The Perfect remedy for the post summer Blues.
If you still can’t believe the summer is gone , like many of us , then you should join the post summer Blues fever that ” abc , CO berlin , KW institute , n.b.k “ and many more have brought us this week ; its all a basic but clever Idea that consist in the following : You buy a ticket which allows you to enjoy over 20 exhibitions and a vast number of events in one week ; if that didn’t convinced you wait untill you hear about the price , this group conformed by most of Berlin’s major art institutes decided to charge only 28 Euros for the week ticket . Although the exhibitions aren’t going to be a week long as the festival will , many of the exhibitions are having their openings on this week .
Now if you think that so many events are gonna take too much of your time we have made a selection of the some of the our Recomendations that you should really try not to miss , is also worth saying that some of them are cheap or free but you’ll need to buy a ticket if you want to see a bit more of the gallerie .
