First of May
First of May

Friday, March 9, 2012

May Day is quite the event in Berlin. Legends have it that witches gather, cackle and revel on Walpurgisnacht, the night from 30 April 30th to May 1st. In Berlin, the first of May was an important East German holiday, and it's still International Worker's Day, a celebration of labour movements and left-wing movements.

Berlin Marathon
Berlin Marathon

Monday, February 13, 2012

The Miniloft apartments are extremely convenient and comfortable for marathon runners. A 20-minute walk (or quick run) or 15 minutes with public transport gets you to the Marathon start and finish line at Brandenburg Gate. Runners appreciate being able to cook their own meals in the comfort of their own apartment, and of course we’re happy to recommend our favorite neighborhood restaurants for carb-loading.

How to get to the Berlinale

Monday, February 13, 2012

The main Berlinale campus at Potsdamer Platz is easily reached from the Miniloft Mitte apartments. Take the S-Bahn (Nordbahnhof to Potsdamer Platz, door-to-door travel time 20 minutes), or a "Kurzstrecke" (short trip) taxi, which costs 4 EUR. Please note that the discounted short trip price is only valid for taxis hailed on the street – go around the corner to Luisenstrasse and pick up a taxi heading south. There are always plenty of taxis.

Berlin Half Marathon
Berlin Half Marathon

Monday, February 6, 2012

The Berlin Marathon gets a lot of press, but its upstart little sibling, the half marathon, is just as speedy and just as popular (well, the race fills up fast). Accreditation begins in just a few days! It may be -18 degrees outside right now, but soon you'll be running down Berlin streets in shorts on a (hopefully cool yet not-too-cool, overcast, but not rainy) April day. The starting gun fires on Karl Marx Allee, and the route wends its way past central Berlin's landmarks, around Alexanderplatz and down Unter den Linden

Berlinale 2011
Berlinale 2011

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

The Berlinale 2011 begins in one month. January is basically hibernation time in Berlin - I've noticed that our present guests here at Minilofts have borrowed some DVDs and are cosying up in their apartments. (But in a way it's also a great month to visit Berlin - no lines at the Pergamon Museum or the Reichstag, long, relaxed dinners in warm candle-lit restaurants, Metropolis accompanied by a live orchestra... and the parties are more wild cause once everyone gets there, they stay.)
