Spreewald: Idyllic Boredom

02.07. 2015 · Escapism

I needed to get out of the city, not for amuse­ment, but to re-charge my batteries. My self-therapeutic meas­ures (in a nut­shell: a con­stant state of denial, com­bined with an over­clocked CPU) can only last so long before I go com­pletely crazy. The past few months were tough, really tough, but there’s still a long way to go before I can

Atten­tion, sneak­er­heads: don’t for­get to put the annual SOLEMART into your cal­en­dars. Since 2009, Sole­mart has become an insti­tu­tion for the sneaker com­munity. It grew from a local flea mar­ket into an inter­na­tion­ally renowned sneaker exhib­i­tion and trade fair. Like always, private con­sumers as well as busi­nesses are invited to

FindingBerlin at Blogfabrik

01.07. 2015 · Crew Life, Made In Berlin, Places

I’m not going to lie: I’ve been run­ning Find­ing­Ber­lin mostly from my bed in the past five years. Every import­ant phone call, every e-mail, and close to every blog post: yup, from my bed. But I have to grow up now if I want to be taken ser­i­ously. I can’t dodge the bul­let of pro­fes­sion­al­ism any­more, espe­cially now that

Abandoned: Elisabeth Sanatorium

Nobody likes winter. Not in Ber­lin, any­way. Cold dark streets and tired with­drawn people exist in a dif­fer­ent city to the one so full of energy and spirit dur­ing these sum­mer months. When the sky finally clears and the sun shines you have to make the most of it. With this in mind, a sunny Sunday morn­ing

26.06. 2015 · Made In Berlin, People, Shopping

You know what really sucks? When people you’ve admired ever since you arrived in Ber­lin finally launch their own fash­ion col­lec­tion and you actu­ally like it, but then it’s already sold out after one hour. So here I am, one day later, pro­mot­ing some­thing that is prob­ably as extinct as a mother­fuck­ing dino­saur, but I have to do it.

Take Your Vacation Out of The Closet

What is uni­ver­sally known as Gay Pride (parade) is mostly known as CSD in Ber­lin and resembles an explo­sion of col­ors, con­fetti and fab­ulous­ness (unless you’re going full techno, then it’s usu­ally tough, rough and sweaty). My sweet spot, Orani­en­straße, turns into a show­case of everything — every people, every gender, every color, every mood,

Save The Date: Summer Events 2015

25.06. 2015 · Events, Kiez Life

Ber­lin is a crazy place to be in the sum­mer, and so dif­fer­ent from the rest of the sea­sonal turns. It doesn’t really mat­ter if the weather is crap, it usu­ally is, but the rush of tour­ists flock­ing in and out, as well as an extens­ive list of tra­di­tional sum­mer events that range from street food

My pre­cious friend Georg just sent me over a list of apart­ment list­ings in Ber­lin from Septem­ber 2006. He was look­ing for a new place to live back then, and for whatever reason, he saved a list of inter­est­ing places. People have been talk­ing quite a while about how Ber­lin has become more expens­ive, but just how much more

Audi Urban Cinema 2015: win 2×2 guestlist spots!

24.06. 2015 · Event calendar, Events

Since 2014, Audi is offi­cial part­ner of the Ber­linale — Ber­lins grande film fest­ival. To cel­eb­rate the occa­sion (and a moody Ger­man sum­mer), the Ger­man car brand has intro­duced an extremely unique concept to the city: the open air cinema, but in flashy Audi cars and front row seats (as opposed to make-shift pub­lic view­ing in the park).

Update: date changed due to crappy weather! The screen­ings will be held on the 10th of July! If you haven’t yet checked out our favor­ite TV guide for the 21st cen­tury, Medi­asteak, it’s time now. This pre­cious gem is the hand-selected Net­flix of the (mostly, but not exclus­ively) Ger­man doc­u­ment­ary craze. GERMANS LOVE DOCUMENTARIES! AND SHORTS!

Happy #GoSkateboardingDay!

22.06. 2015 · Events, Kiez Life

I have a very spe­cial rela­tion­ship to skate­board­ing: I tried it once and hurt myself really badly, so I decided to crawl back to my spot in the shade and keep drool­ing over the sweet boys who were doing tricks on the curbs. Ever since those glor­i­ous skate­park days of my homet­own have passed, I haven’t really been in

The Bowl — Clean Eating & Raw Foods

19.06. 2015 · Food, Places

Thank you, mother earth, for your gen­er­ous vari­ety of lovely veget­ables, seeds and fruits. I was addicted to bad carbs and blocks of bacon grease once, but now I know that I have sinned. I can’t par­ti­cip­ate in those nasty gang­bangs any­more. I say: enough with the burger-bukkake. I am not that kind of per­son now, I am new, I am real, I am

Have you seen Vic­toria yet? I will not tell you any­thing about the plot. It’s bet­ter if you don’t know any­thing — because this gigantic­ally deli­ri­ous idea of a movie can’t be told. It has to seen as a full com­pos­i­tion of film­mak­ing and storyline. One night, one cut, one incred­ible Ger­man movie. In fact: one incred­ible Ber­lin movie. If

Spring/Summer Snapshots

17.06. 2015 · Kiez Life

Let’s be hon­est: this sum­mer is sure off to a slow start. Whenever the tem­per­at­ure drops below 20°, there’s a slight mass-panic to be felt in Ber­lins streets. Was?! SPARGELZEIT IST SCHON VORBEI UND ES IST IMMER NOCH SCHEISSWETTER? Well. One good thing: when the sun finally does show its pretty face, every­body throws spon­tan­eous parties
