Besides our Annual General Meeting on 20 March—the highest highlight of the month!–the Club offers many opportunities to get out, see the city, and make and maintain friendships.
Get Out and Explore
Sunday, March 5 Did you know that March is the European Month of Photography in Berlin? Share in the events by coming with us to the Bröhan Museum for a look at Andreas Feininger’s evocative black-and-white photos of New York in the 1940s.
Monday, 13 March Join a guided tour of Tempelhof Airport, providing an in-depth look at the historical and architectural background. With its monumental architecture, the airport has always been an important symbol in Berlin, first of the self-display of the National Socialists who built it, and then of the city’s stand for freedom during the Berlin Airlift.
Friday 17 March Get a good inside view of the pink parliament house (the Landtag) of Brandenburg, with a guided tour of this spectacular work of rebuilding in the center of Potsdam.
Tuesday, 21 March In this tour of the Berlin-Hohenschönhausen Stasi Prison Memorial, the (English-language) tour guides are historians or individuals who were themselves prisoners here and can provide a vivid sense of the fear and uncertainty of detainment here.
Eat, Drink, and Enjoy
Thursday, 9 March A casual end-of-the-day gathering at Barist Restaurant. Enjoy a chat with friends, an after-work drink, maybe something to eat … A good way to unwind!
Friday, 10 March A late breakfast/ early lunch at SETS in Charlottenburg. The restaurant offers all-day breakfast and plenty of lunch options too, so it’s your choice!
Thursday, 16 March The Business Lunch group gathers at Brasserie Le Paris for authentic French cuisine based on traditional regional recipes.
Friday, 31 March How about an exotic evening out? Join the group for a Persian dinner at Casa Simorgh in Charlottenburg. Homemade saffron ice cream offers the finishing touch!
Talk About Books
Monday, 13 March Can we resurrect dinosaurs or build a time machine? What is the real science behind great science-fiction movies? The Science Group discusses Science(ish): The Peculiar Science Behind the Movies, by Rick Edwards and Michael Brooks.
Monday, 27 March The Afternoon Book Group talks about Circe, by Madeline Miller, a retelling of myth from the Greek Heroic Age—not, this time, from the point of view of the gods and heroes, but from the point of view of the witch Circe.
