Berlin, Germany’s capital city and cultural center, is a happening place for people, music, partying and chilling out, as well as indoor play and outdoor fun at any time of day or night and any time of year. To promote its endless array of events, highlights and entertainment offerings, visitBerlin created the “365/24” slogan under its beBerlin campaign as a promise to visitors that the city will always deliver something new, surprising and unusual. In addition, this joint marketing initiative with Kulturprojekte Berlin offers 365 tips in 24 sections on travel in Berlin that can be found at visitberlin.de/en, as well as an extensive calendar of local events, making it easier to find and book experiences online.
