With around 200 photographs, the exhibition "Ludwig Windstosser: Post-War Modern Photography" at the Museum of Photography / Foundation Helmut Newton presents a carefully chosen selection from the estate of the Stuttgart photographer Ludwig Windstosser (1921-1983). Through his company portraits, Windstosser advanced to become the leading industrial photographer of the West German post-war era. Also his book projects with photos from major German cities such as Berlin and Stuttgart as well as numerous landscape photographs make an important contribution to the documentation of the zeitgeist of the West German post-war era. The exhibition is now trying to provide a comprehensive insight into the life and work of the photographer, which has not yet been honored in any solo exhibition. Tue-Sun 11 am-7 pm (Closed on Mondays, Thu also open until 8 pm), 10/5 €

It was called "Window to the East" during the time of the German-German separation: The Oderberger Strasse at the end of which one could look over the Berlin Wall and to East Berlin from an elevated platform. The proximity to the border and its location in the heart of the city ensured that the area was also under special observation by the SED state. Today, the street in the heart of the lively neighborhood of Prenzlauer Berg is a popular place for both Berliners and tourists, but much of what marked the daily life of the 1970s and 1980s in the GDR, can still be traced along the street today. The Museum in the Kulturbrauerei hence invites you to join a tour through the neighborhood within the scope of this year's 30th jubilee of the Fall of the Berlin Wall. The meeting point of the 90-minute tour is on Friday at 5pm at the information desk of the museum. Participation is free of charge, a registration is not required.

Hunting with birds of prey has a 3500-year tradition. Since 2016, falconry has been included in UNESCO's list of immaterial cultural heritage and is now regarded with a hands-on-exhibition. If you are interested in seing birds of prey up close and would like to learn interesting facts about falconry - hunting with a bird of prey - the historic Grunewald Hunting Lodge in the southwestern surroundings of Berlin offers a special program for you this Sunday: Andrea Badouin has been practicing falconry since 1991 and will introduce herself to the public with her hawk named Thora. She is supported by other falconers, who will also give insights into this special hunting method, which is based on a close bond of trust between humans and animals. Sun 12-5pm, admission to the courtyard and to the hunting magazine is free of charge. Castle: 6/5 €
