Urban Safari Berlin

November 9, 2012


In the soon coming November days 22 and 23 Lower East are the hosts of a Urban Safari in Berlin.

We have two to three seats left, so if you are a quick mover, join us for this adventure. Maybe you can even get a reduced price ūüėČ

Lower East¬†‚Äď in co-opreation with¬†changels¬†‚Äď invite you on an intense¬†2day safari¬†into this urban jungle with its many creative ¬≠spaces, cool exhibition venues, cosy caf√©s & restaurants, sparkling start-ups, simply ¬≠beautiful ¬≠magazine- and bookshops and just amazing corners. We have put together an inspiring ¬≠journey for you to get a powerful bouquet of the colorful start-up flower power of this city.

Lower East have moved their design company Copenhagen to Berlin one year ago and have been ­exploring the “arm, aber sexy“ city ever since. Matti Straub-Fischer, from ­changels, joined the two for a visit and insisted on creating an opportunity for others to this ­diverse mix of creativity, design and ­playfulness. So here we go:

  • We will start on¬†Thursday morning, November 22, 2012, at 10:00 at Wostels, a coworking space in Kreuzk√∂lln/Berlin.
  • We will be a group of 12-15 curious and interesting people like yourself.
  • We will be safaring on bikes, and on foot, by U-Bahn and again on bikes ‚Äď the most fun way to explore and stop and go again.
  • We will have the most wonderful classroom and meeting space, where we can listen and discuss ‚Äď and share inspiration and our inputs.
  • We will be done by¬†Friday afternoon, November 23, 2012¬†at 17:00. Here we finish up at a (start-up and) very cosy winebar NOR (not only riesling) in Kreuzberg with a glass of ¬≠farewell wine.
  • After the Urban Safari, you will receive a rich visual ¬≠documentation on our days in Berlin.
  • Together with¬†Camillos Paladar, we will all put up a fantastic dinner on ¬≠Thursday night. ¬≠Camillos Paladar is a pop-up (mostly in Copenhagen, Berlin and Bern) ¬≠restaurant with ¬≠gorgeous food and remarkable wines. That alone is worth the ¬≠journey.

Are you ready for this adventure with us?

Here is the small-printed stuff:

  • You book your own flight or travels to Berlin.
  • You book your own overnight stays. We ¬≠suggest you some beautiful places like¬†H√ľttenpalast(next to the classroom),¬†Casa Camper¬†or¬†IMA Lofts. We can get you in contact with some cool private flats as well.
  • Your costs will be ‚ā¨730 (as a private or a one man/woman company) or ‚ā¨970 (if your ¬≠company pays) for the two days journey in the urban jungle with food and drinks ¬≠included for the time between Thursday, 10:00 to Friday, 17:00. Bike rentals, U-Bahn ¬≠tickets, and the meeting and kitchen facilities are covered in this.
  • Empty your head. Bring comfortable clothes and shoes, your notebook, some kind of a camera, some coloured pens, an umbrella (just in case) and your toothbrush.

And if you like, you can of course invite a dear friend or your partner to enjoy the rest of the weekend with you in this mind-boggling place.

Feel free to contact us for more info, or if you have any questions.
