Events for the weekend, October 7-9

 Festival of Lights

The Festival of Lights opens on Friday, as always, as if there are no stories about an energy crisis around us. Or maybe there is some impact: The theme of the festival this time is "Vision of our Future" and they promise installations that.. (and I quote) "require very little electricity and look as if they move by magic". 

I prepared a map of the Festival of Lights (and even put pictures of some of the planned intallations), so that you can walk between the attractions. A recommendation for families with children - exactly these small sculptures they are talking about, are not to be missed: For example, the Darth Vader installtion near the Humboldt Forum. Recommendation for everyone: keep valuables in crowded places like the Brandenburg Gate. Valuables, including of course your children in the dark. 

The Long Night of the Families

Continuing with Berlin's exciting nightlife! On the night between Saturday and Sunday, many cultural organizations for children and youth open their doors for activities until the late hours. Some of the activities are neighborhood, in neighborhood children and youth centers; Some in museums or other major sites. 

Some notable events: 

  • Dancing at the Staatsblatt School at the Deutsche  Oper
  • Experiments and activities that are also suitable for families where one of the participants is disabled - at the Indiwi center
  • Build lamps and learn about electronics at GoodLab
  • Make music at the Leo Kestenberg Musikschule 
  • Gaze at the stars at night for the whole family at the planetarium

Sukkot, Tabernacles

The Feast of Tabernacles will begin on Sunday evening and end on the following Sunday evening. Of course, in every synagogue in Berlin  you can find a sukkah. Beyond that
