Last year, Germany’s capital city of Berlin embraced the first ever Maker Faire Berlin, a vibrant celebration that showcased 120 maker exhibits and drew 7,800 attendees. The organizers, Heinz Heise, the German publishing company who produces a German-language version of Make: magazine, have also been hosting Maker Faire Hannover for the past four years.

The inaugural Maker Faire Berlin was a resounding success and this year’s Faire, taking place at Station Berlin on October 1 and 2, promises to be even more lively. There will be 200 maker exhibits manned by 900 makers, and there’s even a new education day added on Friday, September 30, specifically geared toward offering students a unique preview of the Faire.
