Amplified music is not allowed, but you can get permit from each district separately § 10 LImSchG Bln. Usually the Umwelt- und Naturschutzamt is the responsible authority for applications, in some districts it’s the Ordnungsamt. There is no guarantee however you will get any permit as the officials can decide according to the district’s demands. It may take about 4 weeks for the application to be processed.
In addition to the permit to play with amplification you may also need a permit for using the public street according to the Straßengesetz, in particular for placing amplifiers on the streets. The Ordnungsamt of each district is the responsible authority.
Playback is only allowed as a discreet background music. Within the permit of each district there will be further restrictions on the time and space of playing.
The permit in Kreuzberg-Friedrichshain would only allow amplified music on 24 occasions within 6 months from 01.04-30.09 (allowing street music only one time per week) for one hour at a time. While applying you already need to know the dates, times and places for each of your 24 performances. The permit can cost from 35 to 180 €.
On Wittenbergplatz you may only play for 30 min at a time on the same spot. A performance of multiple street musicians, also individual musicians of bands or other loud participants is not allowed.
Pankow-Weißensee (also Prenzlauerberg):
Kollwitzplatz and Oderberger Straße are excluded from the permit. Mauerpark is a park so it is also excluded from the permit for playing on the street.

Modern art includes artistic work produced during the period extending roughly from the 1860s to the 1970s, and denotes the style and philosophy of the art produced during that era. The term is usually associated with art in which the traditions of the past have been thrown aside in a spirit of experimentation. Modern artists experimented with new ways of seeing and with fresh ideas about the nature of materials and functions of art. A tendency away from the narrative, which was characteristic for the traditional arts, toward abstraction is characteristic of much modern art. More recent artistic production is often called contemporary art or postmodern art.

The Monument to the Battle of the Nations (German: Völkerschlachtdenkmal, is a monument in Leipzig, Germany, to the 1813 Battle of Leipzig, also known as the Battle of the Nations. Paid for mostly by donations and by the city of Leipzig, it was completed in 1913 for the 100th anniversary of the battle, at a cost of 6 million Goldmark.
The monument commemorates Napoleon’s defeat at Leipzig, a crucial step towards the end of hostilities in the War of the Sixth Coalition, which was seen[by whom?] as a victory for the German people, although Germany as it is known today did not begin to exist until 1870. There were German speakers fighting on both sides, as Napoleon’s troops also included conscripted Germans from the French-occupied left bank of the Rhine as well as from the Confederation of the Rhine.
The structure is 91 metres (299 ft) tall. It contains over 500 steps to a viewing platform at the top, from which there are spectacular views across the city and environs. The structure makes extensive use of concrete, although the facings are of granite. The monument is widely regarded as one of the best examples of Wilhelmine architecture. It is said to stand on the spot of some of the bloodiest fighting, from where Napoleon ordered the retreat of his army.
Cats have different personalities, and they ended up living with us because it was a mutually beneficial situation. Some cats are more independent, some are quite loving. It just depends on the individual. Cats don’t want to bump you off, but people often don’t know how to treat them and then are surprised by their behaviour.

The central person in Christianity, Jesus, claimed to be Truth when he said, “I am the Way and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father but through me.” Truth is God.
Biblical inerrancy, the Bible is without error. All of the Bible is without error, is to be taken as true, no matter what the issue.
Continuous teaching authority, magisterium, which preserves the definitive, i.e. the truthful, understanding of the faith, irrelevant of a literal interpretation of the Bible. The notion of the Pope as “infallible” in matters of faith and morals is derived from this idea.
Especially in these post-factual times: What is truth?
