To help keep you entertained during these unforseeable times, in an individual effort to prevent the spreading of the pandemic caused by the corona virus (#stayhome!), three platforms are promoting live broadcasts of concerts, DJ sets, performances and galleries virtual tours and museums online collections in Berlin.
The major platform is the United We Stream initiative. In response to the fact that the clubs in Berlin are closed and the rest of the world is in quarantine, Berlin’s clubs, organizers and artists are supporting each other launching the world’s biggest digital club. Contributions from different clubs run online every day from 7 p.m and the website visitors will be asked for a voluntarily donation and in return will receive a “virtual club ticket”. The income from the streams goes to a fundraising fund for social hardship cases which can be used to support clubs and artists suffering from the coronavirus quarantine. Check their live streaming schedule here.
Berlin Bühnen brings together most of the concerts, operas, theatre, performances, dance spectacles happening in Berlin. Although many events were unfortunately canceled, some of them can take place on your device, including classical music concerts at the Berliner Philharmonie and performances at HAU – Hebbel am Ufer. You can check their updated schedule here.
Finally, Museum Portal is a platform gathering more than 200 (!) Berlin museums, memorial sites and palaces. Many of the cultural institutions offer virtual guide tours and/or online collections, including the Berlinische Galerie and the Museum of Natural History.
Set yourself up and enjoy Berlin’s virtual events from the comfort of your home!
