The annual Berlinale Film Festival is one of the highlights of Berlin's winter. What better way to fight the cold than with a day (or an entire week) in the cinema?!
The Film Festival attracts celebrities and stars from around the world, so it's possible to do some celebrity spotting at the main event and on the red carpet (near Potsdamer Platz in and around the Sony Center). The Berlinale is the largest international film festival in the world. More than 400 films are shown over the 10 days in February.
