Context: I am looking into settling down in Berlin and I would like to know what to expect from summer time in term of public activity/cultural events.
What I've observed: I've noticed each city has its own pace during summer time, some cities becoming more active (more people in the city, more cultural/social/outdoor activities), some others becoming more quiet (less people in the city, businesses opened limited hours) or not being impacted at all.
Question: Is Berlin experiencing a decrease in public activity during summer time (July and August)?
I am especially interested by the following aspects:
- Are the streets noticeably less crowded during summer time?
- Is the city known to experience an increase in social/cultural activity during July and August? (example: outdoor cinemas, streets/parks festivals, music festivals, fireworks, ...)
- Is there times during summer when public places (especially coffee places, libraries and co-working spaces) are expected to be open only during limited hours (or to be closed)?
