Raring to go! Right after a delicious breakfast at the Golden Tulip Hotel Berlin-Hamburg with General Manager Ms. Evelyn Schönherr-Knaak we set off again! We wonder what lies in store for us today. Last night we already received a text message revealing the first destination for today: Café Sybille, Karl-Marx-Allee 72
On our way to the café we had a lot on our minds. What was awaiting us? And, above all, who was awaiting us? The traditional café is a location as well as a museum and a coffee-house. Besides this it offers a permanent exhibitions about the history of Karl-Marx-Allee.
Once there, we were standing before the café a bit hesitantly when suddenly a familiar face approached with a big smile, Susan Steudtemann of Visit Berlin. Over a drink at 1950s-style Café Sybille, again with an atmosphere all of its own and views from gigantic windows, we were given our “leads” for the day. All we got were the times and directions. All other information would be revealed to us in the course of the day.
Hope you enjoy sharing the excitement!!
Yummy! The breakfast at our hotel is certainly rather scrumptious and today we had such nice company, too: Ms. Evelyn Schönherr-Knaak, General Manager of the Golden Tulip Berlin-Hamburg, likes to combine business with pleasure, to save time. This certainly turns work into fun. Although we must say that Ms. Schönherr-Knaak really seems to be enjoying her work all the time. “I have found my dream job and have arrived.“ Her 3 daughters also seem to feel at home in this sector. But why has the whole family dedicated itself to hospitality? “In the hotel business no two days are ever the same, and in the morning you never know what the day will bring.“ We think this is also a rather apt description of Berlin!
Berlin is in a state of constant change and growth. Hence, the hotel is constantly being further developed and expanded. Only a short while ago a new conference area was added and a further one is planned for the near future. Simply because there have been requests and the hotel does not want to turn them down. Obviously, Berlin’s popularity for meetings and congresses is still continuing to grow.
We feel quite at home in this hotel and can only recommend a stay here.
Of course, we are going to share our fantastic photos and impressions!
“Yes, and in the Max Planck Institute, of course …”. No Christine, the name is Max Planck Science Gallery! It’s hard to remember the name if you know the institutes of Mr. Max Planck from so many German cities. And it’s also hard to remember, if you can barely imagine what the gallery is all about.
On entering the gallery we observed that we had never seen anything like it. With a nice view of the Gendarmenmarkt from the huge window the 120-sqm room is full of colourful and vibrant impressions. Three bubbly young staff members helped us find our way there and we were full of amazement. At five stations you can interactively gain information on the fundamental research of the Max Planck Society, move images and watch films. “Tipping elements” were a a highly fascinating and very important topic. Come, explore and see for yourself!
But why choose Berlin as the location for such a special “museum“, we wondered. Berlin is a place that is constantly in motion, so such an innovative institution that moves so many people really belongs there.
This place is definitely a must-see. But you should take your time, as there is so much to experience and try!
Your totally overwhelmed scouts!
“Meeting, Congress, Incentive” or “Minds, Communities, Ideas”
MCI stands for all this and for an impressive number of 47 offices in 23 countries. Here in Germany there are four, and of course we are at the one in Berlin with Managing Director Gunda Stickan.
Once again, there was so much information that we didn’t know where to start or even where to stop. What impressed us most of all was the group’s commitment to the environment. They have initiated or are constantly supporting so many great projects! In day-to-day business staff are instructed to adopt green practices. In addition, social projects are supported such as charities for the homeless. Nevertheless, this commitment still needs to be within economical limits. This is the only way to realise the motto: People, Planet, Profit.
The group’s portfolio is huge and therefore we can only recommend that you visit their website.
