Berlin has been an extremely creative capital ever since the 1920s when the liberal spirit of the Weimar Republic allowed it to give birth to more literary masterpieces, plays, musical performances, and even films (at the film studio in neighboring Babelsberg) than at perhaps any other time in German history.

The creative spirit has continued to flourish and, thanks to Berlin’s relatively cheap standard of living and high government subsidies for the arts, the city still offers an atmosphere like no other for those looking to be creative—and for those looking to enjoy their creations.

With four opera houses, an endless number of theaters, and cinemas both big and small, Berlin has something to offer the performing arts aficionado almost every day of the week. It’s just a matter of knowing where to find what interests you.
