Dance Course at Kunsthaus Flora
Would you like to dance? If you don’t know how (and even if you do), the Dance Course at Kunsthaus Flora is the place where your passion for dancing will be awoken or rekindled. A quick note for the would-be dancers – this event is for adults only.
While running was popular in the rest of the world, Germany was facing its own problems with political and economic division. Running was not a priority. However, in 1981, in West Germany, the French Armed Forces, specifically Major Bride, decided to organize a street race using the race from Paris to Versailles as a model. They had a right to do so, on the grounds that they greater authority than the German law at the time, so they blocked the traffic and started a tradition that still continues. Big 25 is 25 kilometers long, and the number of runners increases every year.
Cyclists are often overlooked when it comes to sporting events. Not here. The Velothon welcomes all cyclists, big and small, beginners and pros. Whether you want to compete, beat your personal best, or just participate and have fun, this is the right event for you. This cycling venue is second only to the legendary Tour de France. There are three courses – the Velothon 60, the Velothon 100 and the Velothon 160.
The Velothon 60 is, you’ve guessed it, sixty kilometers long. Suitable for beginners, it will give you chance to pass by the Brandenburg Gate or the Potsdamer Platz. The Velothon 100 goes as far as Brandenburg. The Velothon 160 is the combination of the two, recommended only to the toughest and fastest cyclists.
Are you feeling athletic and lucky? Would you like to test your limits? Are you up for some healthy recreation? Or, perhaps, you would rather be a spectator to physical prowess of others. In any case, there are many events created for our benefit that would be a shame to miss.
