Description

ABerlin Fest 2016 - free admission

Celebrate #Berlin - “the coolest city on the planet” in an outdoor beach club atmosphere with stage performances, film screenings, original Berlin food and beverages and more!

Following the success of the first #BerlinFest in 2014, which celebrated the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the German Consulate General Hong Kong and visitBerlin jointly present a sequel of the Berlin Fest this year aiming to advertise the German capital as “the coolest city on the planet”, as GQ Magazine calls it.

The Berlin Fest 2016 will centre around a typical Berlin #BeachClub with food and drinks at typically low Berlin prices (which are about half of Hong Kong prices, a German beer starting at 30HKD). Even though Berlin has no ocean beaches, beach clubs are extremely popular along the river banks of the Spree river, where guests can enjoy drinks, snacks, music and the downtown Berlin skyline in reclining beach chairs – all of this will be available in Hong Kong!

The programme throughout the three days will feature #hiphop #music and #dance performances, German #film screenings (in cooperation with Goethe-Institut Hongkong) including Oscar-winning film “The Lives of Others”, football shootout games, a wheel of fortune, a sneak preview of award-winning German computer #games for kids, a Berlin #BuddyBear and an on-stage discussion with young Hongkongers who lived in Berlin.
