Silent Green: from crematorium to cultural quarter

'Silent Green': culture quarter in a former crematorium, Wedding, Berlin Berlin

What to do with a beautiful, disused crematorium hidden in the heart of Wedding?

Turn it into a cultural centre, of course, and the poetically named Silent Green certainly ranks among Berlin's loveliest arts spaces.

Billing itself as a place for 'thinking, research and experimentation', the venue is not only home to leading art gallery SAVVY contemporary, but features an eclectic programme of music, screenings and lectures, many of which take place in the beautifully restored cupola.

Even if you're not attracted by the line-up of events, it's worth discovering one of Wedding's true architectural gems; a complex dating from 1911 which was the first crematorium built in Berlin.

And once you've finished admiring the tranquil, cloister-like space, amble over to in-house cafe Moos, which is fast gaining a reputation as one of the area's loveliest eateries.
