Friends with Benefits: Valentine’s Day

12.02. 2016 · Events

This weekend is all about LOVE. If you have forgotten once again or just tried to push it to the back of your mind, we remind you that on Sunday is Valentine’s Day. If you haven’t forgotten, but still desperately searching for any plans in making your sweetheart pleased or even if you’re an unhappy

Herrumbre: Terror, Pain & Staatsballet

12.02. 2016 · Events, Other, People

On February 14, the Staatsballet Berlin proves once again that ballet is more than only pompous costumes and wistful choreography. With Herrumbre, director Nacho Duato created a modern dance piece that revolves around the themes of pain, terror and torture. Even if you’re not a typical ballet fan, you should take the chance to experience

The Berlinale Food Trucks

10.02. 2016 · Food, Made In Berlin

During the upcoming Berlinale Festival from Feb 11th – 21st, some selected food makers organized by Markthalle Neun will feed you and keep you warm, together with all the other journalists, movie lovers and festival staff around Potsdamer Platz. So last week we got invited to the Markthalle 9 to test parts of the menu from the upcoming street food

Kanaan Hummus Restaurant

08.02. 2016 · Food, Places

When I received the invitation I just skimmed through the text because I only read texts that have 140 characters and are exclusively written by me. Visibly impressed I stopped and read the part again where it said „the best hummus in town“. „Ballsy“, I thought to myself. But what is Hummus exactly anyway? That gritty,

Finding Moscow

05.02. 2016 · Escapism

A year ago I decided to go to Moscow for my studies and also because I needed a change of scenery. Berlin was already exhausting me. New life, new me – that was the idea. Most of you probably wonder what got into me, why the hell did it had to be Moscow, but I

The Quick Berlin Tour

05.02. 2016 · Other, Places

My idea of a guided tour through Berlin is very self-centered. I have a very narcissistic narrative that mostly revolves around where I made out when with whom and which clubs used to be there but which aren’t anymore. My tours generally end without any legit piece of information, and sometimes wasted. There is also
ICC Messe Grüne Woche-9701


04.02. 2016 · Architecture, Places

One of my favorite buildings in Berlin is the International Congress Centrum, also known as ICC Berlin. It is a monstrosity wrapped in tin foil, straight out of an Aliens invasion movie (somehow, I associate District 9 with this building). In typical Berlin megalomania, it is one of the largest congress buildings in the world,

Best Delivery Food: Habba Habba

29.01. 2016 · Food, Kiez Life

I’ve spent the last year trying out every delivery service under the Berlin sun (or within the Ring) and have not been able to decide on which one is the best. It’s definitely much easier to decide which one is the worst, because most of them fall into that category. I can’t believe it’s 2016

Grüne Woche Berlin 2016

28.01. 2016 · Events, Food

Many people come to Berlin because they’ve seen, or heard of, the life that you can live here. I get it: compared to other European or Western metropoles, Berlin seems free and affordable, tolerant and liberal. I’m sure we can find a plethora of already well-established characteristics that draw people to Berlin. But most people

A Lonely Year In Berlin

26.01. 2016 · Crew Life, Other, People

Sometimes I get really interesting submissions. Sometimes they’re weird or rude, usually people who need to critically assess the value of this crappy blog. But every now and then, someone just wants to share their perspective on Berlin, and how they experienced life in the city. When these mails come with emotional, subjective photography that

Naturkundemuseum Berlin: A Field Trip

25.01. 2016 · Places

I have to admit, it was the T-Rex that drew me to the Naturkundemuseum Berlin. Although I’d only recently been to the impressive Natural History Museum in New York, I’d never given the museum in Berlin a shot. In fact, I’ve never given ANY museum in Berlin a shot, so after eight years, consider this

HelloFresh & Jamie Oliver: Delivery Recipes

22.01. 2016 · Food

I grew up in a household that was centered around the kitchen. My mother was a great chef, mostly out of necessity – with five hungry mouths to feed, you don’t really get to eat out in restaurants without going broke really fast – and I definitely inherited this underlying need of feeding people. I

Kreuzberg in Snow

06.01. 2016 · Kiez Life

Guys. I took one for the team and went outside for longer than necessary, all equipped with a real camera instead of just my iPhone. The winter wonderland of Kreuzberg makes for a great panorama, although usually when it snows like this it’s not -9 but rather -2. But it doesn’t matter, because this season

Notes about New York

15.12. 2015 · Escapism

Although I’ve been in Berlin for quite a few years now, it took a personal loss and a thorough dissection of my parents house to make this city feel like my home. Even if I wanted to move back, I couldn’t. And though nothing about the materiality of me (still) being in Berlin changed, the concept of why
