Open Air Sommerkino: Blockbuster in City West

10. October 2018

The outdoor summer cinema (Open Air Sommerkino) was once again a huge hit in 2018, almost magnetically drawing in visitors to the Kranzler Eck in Berlin. The program was split evenly between current hits and golden classics of cinema, with precisely these cinematic gems drawing the biggest crowds. The organisers had arranged around 200 deckchairs, and they were almost always completely occupied. Considerable queues formed at the ticket booth, particularly for the weekend showings, meaning those who came early had the choice of the best seats. Many visitors took advantage of the opportunity to combine the film event with a stroll around the location.

 

And visitors did not have to miss out on popular cinema snacks, with popcorn and cold beverages proving a sales hit. “There is no other shopping centre that has an outdoor cinema like this, at least not in City West. This helps us underscore that ‘real’ life still happens outdoors and not in front of a computer screen. When the weather plays along, an evening at the outdoor cinema in the Kranzler Eck is certainly one of the highlights in Berlin’s packed event calendar,” says the manager of the centre, Alexandra Meyder-Cyrus.

International German Gymnastics Festival with Hotspot in Kranzler Eck

30. May 2017

How is that for some colour! This is the motto of this year’s International German Gymnastics Festival held from 3 to 10 June in Berlin. With around 100,000 participants from all parts of the world, the gymnastics festival is one of the largest competition and popular sporting events worldwide. The Kranzler Eck will also be colourful: as one of the numerous official hotspots in the city, two activity stations will be set-up in the courtyard around the Buddy Bear Quadriga. From Sunday to Friday participants will be able to put their skills to the test at the “Berlin-uff-Achse-Fitnesstest” (Berlin-on-the-Move Fitness Test) and earn points doing so. Entertainment is provided by talented, up-and-coming artists who will entertain the visitors with live music every day from 12 p.m.–2 p.m. and 6 p.m.–8 p.m.

Special events in the Kranzler Eck
4 and 5 June 10 a.m.–6 p.m.
6 to 9 June 10 a.m.–8 p.m.

The stations:

Station “City of Science”:
This station’s theme is all about brain jogging and endurance training. In one round, participants must memorise scientific concepts/names of scientists. Each participant plays a total of 5 rounds and has to memorise a new term in each round and correctly recite them at the end.

Station “City of Fashion”:
The theme of this station is personal body awareness, balance and fun. The task is to put a crawling tunnel (different sizes) over your body at the start line of the small obstacle course that has been set up. Participants must keep their balance on the track, then hop through tyres lying on the ground and strike a catwalk pose at the end of the course. To complete the task, participants must run back through the obstacle course.

The roughly 60 participants put on an exciting race on the 400-meter-long track which was followed live by some 3,500 spectators. Stargast was once again a juror along with TV chef Ralf Zacherl who not only cheered on his colleagues but also rated their desserts. The three winners from each category were awarded a prize of up to €300 and were heavily applauded by the audience.

Young up-and-coming gymnasts in Berlin provided entertainment between the races by putting their skills on display for the enthusiastic audience. Their performance also served to advertise the upcoming International German Gymnastics Festival which will be held in Berlin from 3 to 6 June. Kranzler Eck will also be there as a hotspot.

Exhibition “Look here, this is West Berlin!”

6. March 2017

It was a small part of the Federal Republic of Germany which was of great political significance after the war: when West Berlin became a symbolic island after the Berlin Wall was built, many new and reconstructed buildings had to meet this high standard. The Berlin-based architecture firm, MASKE + SUHREN, commemorated this event with a small yet fine public exhibition on the typical Berlin advertising columns which could be seen in the Volierengarten (aviary garden) in the Kranzler Eck from 7 March to 7 April 2017.

The exhibition traced the fascinating transition from the “New West” to City West and offers a view of the changing neighbourhood around the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtniskirche (Kaiser Wilhelm Memory Church), the Kurfürstendamm, Tauentzienstraße and Berlin Zoo. Today, we perceive the City West as a business area, an enchanting place people long to visit, an area for strolling and amusement, a shopping destination and stronghold for the hotel business – a vibrant, urban centre of Berlin! The Kranzler Eck acts as a modern exhibition venue, confronting visitors with modern architecture, moving history and a long-standing tradition.
