Berlin is home to the Worcester County Arts Council and features art galleries, live music venues, and more than 10 restaurants to choose from.
The culinary arts are alive with farm to table choices and a made from scratch bakery. You can make your own hand-blown glass ornament at the Jeffery Auxer Glass Design Studio during the holiday season and many of our downtown shops feature the artwork of local artists.
Stop by the Berlin Welcome Center and admire the large wall mural; Pollinator Way sidewalk mural next to Island Creamery and tribute to Dr. Reverend Charles Albert Tindley mural located on the Bruder Hill building on Commerce Street.
You can watch artists at work in Wooden Octopus & watch glass blowing at Beach Memories. Handmade wooden guitars can be found out the Harvest Guitar Shop and The Dusty Lamb is an artist owned shop and gallery you don’t want to miss!
