I'm going to learn some Deutsch at the Goethe Institut... then I will try to get a job somewhere :-)
Why are you all going?
About parties... I know of a lot of stuff going on over there.... there's a huge Techno scene, a good Jazz scene... and I'm sure Indie is big there also. I know mostly about the Techno stuff... since I DJ and produce that sort of music.
So what are you guys into? I might be able to provide some info

there's the adidas original store, tons of concept nike freddy perry hugo boss etc stores
all the streets north from that google link have tons of goodies ( before you hit Torstrasse )
Neue Schonhauser Strasse ( fred perry etc ) continue unto Munzstrasse there's the Adidas concept store with American apparel Acne etc etc
Mulackstrasse has APC among other things
if you like design books etc check out Pro Qm it's at Almstadtstraße 48-50 ( adress on superfuture is outdated )
in regards to books you should also take a look at museum stores( the Hamburger Bahnhof - Museum für Gegenwart mostly contemporary art ( Wahrol etc ) had the biggest selection I saw. If you go there check out the Sarah Wiener restaurant next door for a nice snack or meal ).
They have tons of crazy good deals.
I got some books marked down to 15 Euros from 60+ Euros
I just got back from Berlin tuesday and had the best time over there.
Things are so cheap when going out to party eat etc.
I wasn't there to do any clothes shopping so can't really tell you about that even if I did walk by all the stores ... but
I did do tons of book shopping and my carry-on luggage weighed a ton and a half.
also for the tourist tip, obviously get the 3 day pass for musems if you,re into that kind of thing, check out guggenheim if you like pointillism ( they have an expo right now ), HELMUT NEWTON FOUNDATION if you like photography, if you want to knock out all the major sight seeing in an afternoon you can either take the free berlin tour ( you tip the tour guide ) or full day tour for 12 euros or something from:

Damn, that was very helpful jdat! Thank you very much! I don't know if I'm going to go sightseeing on my own a lot, because the school is organizing it and they already planned a lot of sightseeing. And now that you mention it, I DO want to buy some cool designerbooks (I've had an artistblock for more than 6 months!) tho, so thank you! Any books you recommend?
well design is fairly vague.
What are you specifically interested in?
I could give you pointers but you need to tell me more
Posted 12 March 2007 - 07:25 PM
Name some of your faforite books, and I'll check them out!
Oh, and something I definately want to have is how to make patterns, I would love to make my own clothes!

anyway, they've got really cheap deals for their g-stars and nudie jeans....etc... great place to check out fer sure!!!
the adidas originals is around the local designers area which houses other brands like paul frank as well.
if anyone who knows what im talkin about and knows the names of the streets, it would be helpful to him.
oh ya, there's a thai/vietnamese shop nearby the adidas originals which makes some really good fusion food although menu's quite pathetic. anyway, be sure to go early as it is HELL POPULAR there! hard to get seats.

I want to check out;
Local markets and second hand shops.
Belgian designers and local designers.
Good restaurants (not too expensive).
Any good club consepts, raves or conserts?
Any info on the city will be appreciated
Posted 29 March 2007 - 05:10 PM
Belleville (Rosa-Luxembourgstrasse 27) - a conceptstore selling clothes, magazines, books and music.
Eisdieler (Muntzstrasse) - this former ice parlour has been taken over by five independent Berlin desingers selling a combination of second-hand clothes and stuff done by independent Berlin designers
Andreas Murkudis (Munzstrasse 21) - next to Eisdieler, selling Kostas Murkudis, Dirk Schonenberger, Frank Leder, Pulver, Y-3, Margiela et al.
Apartmentstore (Memhardstrasse 8) - another concept store selling labels like Bernhard Willhelm, Surface 2 Air, Marc Jacobs and some Berlin-based designers like Kaviar Gauche and Macqua. Be on the lookout for social events for fashion die-hards at this location.
Villa Caprice (Dirckenstrasse) - a bar where everything you see is for sale.. (well, almost everything). Again, plenty of stuff by Berlin designers in the back.
Moving on to Prenzlauerberg.. for less cutting edge and more vintage/thrift shopping. Concentrate on Kastanienallee, Oderberger Strasse and Schoenhauser Allee for vintage shopping and weird stuff:
Freistil (Oderbergerstrasse 6) - London/Berlin-based designer stuff combined with vintage clothing. Interesting smells.
Skunk Funk Store (Kastanienallee) - Many (European) Streetwear-esque labels like Basque, Encore and the like.
Flea markets! The market in the Mauerpark (end of Oldenbergstrasse) is a definite must see. Retro furniture, clothing, vinyl and junk sold by Berliner leute. Very DDR. Loads of fun! It's on every sunday during the summer months. Ask the shop owners in the area if it's on yet because I'm not sure. If Mauerpark market is still closed, you can head towards Arkonaplatz. It's smaller, but open during the winter months as well.
Another option (not in that area) is the market at Boxhagener Platz in Friedrichshain. I don't think it gets any more DDR than this. The surrounding area is a bit less appealing (=less bars and shops), but it's open all winter as well.
Berlin probably has the best nightlife in ... the universe. Clubs are dirty, underground and open until late. The ones that matter right now are Postbahnhof, Berghain (and its Panorama Bar), Watergate, RAW, Maria am Ostbahnhof (my favorite), Cassiopeia and the punk-oriented Supamolly.

I'm just back from a trip to Berlin, the city is HUGE and awesome! I wasn't able to visit most of the stores mentioned in this thread tho:
But I did check out a part of Ku'damm, which was very nice. Thanks for all the people who helped me out!
I stayed at the Sunflower hostel, which was just about 3 minutes away from the Berghain(AWESOME club, very dirty and decayed. And a lot of men kissing and making out in the toilets...). I also went to the Cassiopeia, it was a very nice/small comfy club, you can also hang out outside and in the skating/BMX-room. There was an MC-Battle, I didn't understand a word, but the beats were very nice!
I'm DEFINATELY planning on going back to this city in my own time!

Scheisse Tisswat! Why didn't you reply earlier ;__;,

-must-do touristy stuff

Posted 31 May 2007 - 10:52 AM
Etcetera. Also: http://superfuture.c...ted.cfm?city=77
Finally, the "must-do touristy stuff" is described in pretty much all Berlin travel guides - both online and printed.
