Berlin Art Week
17th - 22nd of September 2013

The Berlin Art Week was only established in 2012. It is a unique platform for artists, galleries and institutes and thereby strengthens the city's status as a centre for art.

Berlin Art Week subsumes several important art events that take place annually in September, for instance the two art fairs "abc - art berlin contemporary" and "Preview Berlin Art Fair". Furthermore, Berlin based institutions for contemporary art collaborate with hundreds of galleries and artists in order to provide a series of special art events. Thereby the organizers of the Berlin Art Week want to put a spotlight on the city as a place for making art, featuring group and solo shows and spectacular exhibitions.

Berlin Art Week - meeting point for the international art scene
During the Berlin Art Week, hundreds of galleries present new artistic positions. Major events such as opening receptions, exhibitions, talks and performances offer the opportunity for collectors, gallerists, artists, media representatives, and international guests to meet.

A reason behind the founding of the Berlin Art Week is that new art fairs around the world and new alliances among competing art fairs forced Berlin to rethink the way it presents art. The organizers of the Berlin Art Week seek to present many high quality events to attract Berlin residents as well as the international audience.Berlin Art Weeks 2013 Facts:

Berlin Marathon
29th of September 2013

The Berlin Marathon traditionally takes place on the last weekend in September every year. More than 40,000 athletes set off the marathon, cheered on by about a million spectators. The Berlin Marathon is supposed to be the fastest marathon course in the world. Over 40,000 athletes from around 120 countries set off on the course, cheered on by a million spectators, more than 70 live bands and dance groups. In this year the Berlin-Marathon will once again captivate the German capital.

Participating in the Berlin Marathon means a lot more than just running the same 42 kilometers together with the fastest athletes in the world, however. Experiencing the fantastic atmosphere along the course and running through the Brandenburg Gate and past the grandstands the last 400 meters to the finish line make this euphoric marathon race an unforgettable experience for everyone.

Like in the years before there will be participants starting on wheelchairs, a group of hand bikers and the group of power-walkers.

Berlin Marathon 2013 Facts:
