Taken by surprise

„It's something different, very special and beautiful! Also a location that hasn't been on my radar until now. Just a really great thing. :)”
was at SILENT SONGS into the wild | Konzerthaus Berlin
„I love surprises! Even though we were VERY surprised what you chose for us, we had a lot of fun!”
was at Hip Hop Jam 2017 | YAAM
„Hey Helmut! I've been living in Berlin since the 90s and I know virtually almost everything. The trick with you guys is the curation. With you, one finds events that one might never have found nor valued. Brilliant idea.”
was at Turbulenzen - Festival für aktuelle interkulturelle Musik | RADIALSYSTEM V
„The principle of surprise has a very big appeal and it will be a special evening - whether the event matches your taste or not.”
was at Melanie De Biasio | Columbia Theater
„I have already recommended it to all my friends and given the HELMUT SURPRISE for a birthday present. Probably not for everyone, but for open people it's perfect!”
was at Actress • The Field • Photay | Funkhaus Nalepastrasse
„Great idea, always great events. If you have difficulties to decide where to go, it is the ideal solution (also a good deal)!”
was at ZOLA JESUS | SO 36

You want to know more about the HELMUT SURPRISE?

We can tell you this much already: Behind every SURPRISE a wonderful evening awaits you. Whether it’s a date night, a birthday or you're just up for a spontaneous adventure in the city - It'll be an unforgettable night! Berlin has so much to offer and that's what we want to show you.

We will take you off the beaten path: Perhaps to an intimate nightclub, where young artists are showing off their talent, or a classical movie is projected on the big screen with a new score played live. There may be even spectacular dance performances, great productions on beautiful stages or unique concerts waiting for you. One thing is for sure: There are no limits. From small and intimate performances by artists up close, to big and spectacular productions on grand stages.

We look out for the most special events in unique locations. Genre, style and length, who knows - it could be anything! Just keep the evening free, as all SURPRISE events start at 19:00 the earliest.

But enough with all the secrecy. Be bold and wild - trust your closest friend HELMUT in having a good time out. Evenings become experiences, you celebrate the moment and keep those memories with you forever.
