November in Berlin has a number of cultural and entertainment events on offer and lives up to its reputation as a diverse capital.

The capital has just recently played host to light festivals and Halloween parties, and November is already presenting the upcoming highlights in the busy calendar of events. Berlin Science Week makes science accessible around the city at the beginning of the month, and entertainment is provided by major events such as the JazzFest, the Krimimarathon (Crime Marathon) and the Days of Jewish Culture. The city is also marked by the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, which will be celebrated on 9 November with a large concert at the Brandenburg Gate. And since the days are getting ever shorter, Berlin is already ringing in the pre-Christmas season – from 15 November, the Botanical Garden will be transformed into the annual Christmas Garden, a vibrant and glittering fairytale world.

It is the historical highlight of the year, which you should make sure not to miss during your visit: Celebrate together with thousands of locals and guests on the day the capital became one again. Many artists whose songs are closely linked to the events are expected to attend “30 Jahre Mauerfall”, and DJ Westbam will help shape the stage programme. In any case, if you find yourself at Pariser Platz, you can also go straight to Madame Tussauds and take some funny selfies with your favourite stars. You can pose with the legendary wax figures a whole 25% cheaper if you present your Berlin CityTourCard at the entrance. Or would you rather learn about the time before the fall of the Wall in advance of the event? It’s just a short walk along the boulevard Unter den Linden until you arrive at the DDR Museum. There you will not only find out exciting things about the socialist state and its wiretapping methods, but also the everyday life of the people in the German Democratic Republic comes alive. Awaiting you here are goods that have been out of production for many years and a look into a typical apartment in an East German prefabricated building. The entrance fee is a whole 15% less than you would normally have to pay. If you're feeling peckish, you can enjoy your favourite burger with a 35% discount right around the corner at McDonalds at Alexanderplatz.

November in Berlin will exciting

It goes without saying that golden autumn days also entice you to go on sightseeing tours, which you can do affordably thanks to your Berlin CityTourCard, for example with the buses of Berlin City Circle Yellow Sightseeing or with guided tours by Insider Tour Berlin. Rainy days are the perfect excuse to revel in exciting indoor experiences. You and your friends can solve exciting puzzles about aliens or NASA secrets at Illuminati Escape Game. Here you can become an agent just like in the German Spy Museum, where you can not only marvel at the best espionage paraphernalia à la James Bond, but also slip into strikingly unremarkable costumes or get active on the laser obstacle course. Both interactive attractions are discount partners of the Berlin CityTourCard and offer you rewarding discounts. From 4 to 17 November, you can explore fictitious crime scenes around the capital at the tenth Krimimarathon Berlin-Brandenburg. Listen to the spooky stories of well-known crime thriller authors such as Robert Harris and Volker Kutscher, who, with the cases of investigator Gereon Rath, wrote the books on which the hit series Babylon Berlin is based. There are also a number of filming locations to discover in the metropolis. If you’re seeking yet more thrills, the Berlin Dungeon will take you back to the dark times of Berlin. A whole 30% discount is offered for this history lesson of a somewhat different kind.
