CineStar CUBIX am Alexanderplatz is set in a cube-shaped steel and glass building. Spread across four floors, it features nine modern screening halls. It is one of the popular multiplexes in the city for movie-goers. Enjoy the latest Hollywood flicks and German cinema in this stylish theater.
Originally built in 1914, the Volksbühne am Rosa Luxemburg Platz was rebuilt in 1954 after the World War II bombings nearly ravaged it. This venerable theater is known for its experimental productions that not only appeal the masses but also the critics. Their paradoxical shows are always engaging and thought-provoking, making them one of the best contemporary theaters in the nation.
Although plans are afoot to radically redesign Alexanderplatz, the square is still dominated by socialist buildings whose architectural beauty still attracts attention. One of these, Haus des Lehrers, is marked by an impressive 125 metre long mural which wraps its way around the building. Painted by Walter Womancka, this colorful depiction of "the perfect socialist life" is a classic example of the kind of art once promoted by East German authorities for propaganda purposes. Erected in 1964, the building represented a break with the monumental architecture of the Stalin era and a move towards a more cosmopolitan and transparent style. Originally built as a congress center for teachers, the building is now used for exhibitions and cultural events.
The ancient St. Mary's Church, built of rough stone and crowned by a copper green steeple, was first mentioned in chronicles from the year 1294. As such, it contrasts starkly with its surroundings, a series of spartan socialist monoliths towered over by the futuristic TV Tower. It reminds us that Berlin is in fact an ancient city, although little has survived successive centuries of turmoil. The inside of the church is as plain as the socialist urban landscape outside, a place where Medieval Protestantism meets twentieth century agnosticism.
Nestled in the heart of the city and overlooking the St. Mary's Church (Marienkirche), Berliner Fernsehturm (TV Tower) and Neptunbrunnen, Haus ungarn is indeed in an enviable location. It is also near the DDR Museum and Berliner Dom. Set in the former Hungarian cultural center, this modernized event venue offers flexible spaces for a variety of events such as concerts, parties, galas, shoots, product launches, fashion shows, workshops and exhibitions. Their terrace is a much sought after place for its panoramic views.
Brauhaus Lemke is one of the oldest functioning microbreweries in Berlin; for a city that really loves beer, that's saying quite a lot. The brewery was started by Oli Lemke in 1998 when he put together his own brewing system in his garage. Friends helped him set up the brewing system in an old S-Bahn unit, and in 1999, the Brahaus Lemke served its first beer. Today, visitors can sample the brewery's excellent craft beers, and even take home some bottles of their very own. The brewery also serves up delicious traditional German fare to go with its brews.
