Meeting Point

Scandinavian Meeting Point Berlin / The Nordic Platform
Follow us on Facebook  here.

”It does not matter if you have been in Berlin for ages or just arrived yesterday, you are always welcome at the meeting Points, which is what I love about it. And it is so unpredictable – you never know who is going to be there and you always end up meeting new people.” Sofia, student, Sweden

Although Berlin offers a wide range of events, activities, bars and clubs with an international atmosphere, to find yourself surrounded by fellow countrymen from the Nordic countries (and other interested visitors) is just what an expat needs from time to time. In this informal environment it is easy to make new friends and talk about all that Berlin has to offer, cultural differences or why not the art pieces on the walls? It is the perfect opportunity to experience Nordic and German art, discuss job opportunities or simply to speak your native language. Affordable Beverages and snacks are always provided.

Statements:
”Scandinavian Meeting Point was one of the first events I went to, when I came to Berlin and I am happy I did. It gave me an opportunity to find friends in a new city and has also helped me find foothold artistically.”
Anne Louise, artist, Norway

“The Scandinavian Meeting Point is the monthly event I do not want to miss. It is such a cozy and warm environment with no obligations at all. People that come there are always happy and smiling and it is really easy to find someone to talk to.”
Patricia, student, Denmark

“It is a great way to combine art with meeting new people and getting new contacts. The people from the gallery are doing a great job finding out what people’s interests are and then connecting the visitors with the same interests. It is really a platform that goes beyond the gallery’s physical boundaries.”
Henry Stöcker, artist, Germany

Leave a book and/or take one home with you!

Leaving town? Why not drop off your old literature here? Besides the art, we hold an exchange bookshelf where Scandinavian (and German) literature can be put to good use again. Grab a cup of coffee, have a look around and find an interesting book. We would happily introduce you to the ongoing exhibition while you find something to read or drop off some old ones before you leave Berlin.
