There are some S-Bahn stations that haven't seen a train for more than thirty years now. Ghost stations. Some of them still exist and are easy to spot, others are decayed to such an extent that one hardly recognizes the platform. All of them tell stories from prosperous times long ago.
Was erwartet man eigentlich, wenn man für eine Woche in das Western Cape Südafrikas eingeladen wird? Zumindest anhand der Geschichten über Johannesburg und Kapstadt, die es ab und an von Urlaubern zu hören gibt, könnte man das für eine eher düstere Form des Urlaubs halten: nicht nachts raus gehen, niemals alleine sein, bloß nicht an roten Ampeln
I wouldn’t exactly say that the RAW Tempel Location makes a good place for a BBQ, but it’s not too far off from grime-y places like Görlitzer Park either so we might just as well get the grill fired up. In any case, you may or may not remember that that’s where our Headquarters for FindingBerlin-Tours are,
How in Gods name could we NOT have covered the Carnival of Cultures, better known as Karneval der Kulturen in German, so far on FindingBerlin? One of the greatest and most visited events in our city, a massive spectacle for families and hedonists alike, the Carnival of Cultures offers everything for everyone and is the second
A lovely summer evening does not require a lush ocean or even a clean river to swim in, although it would be nice indeed. We beat the sticky heat by devouring it. Besides, we only get to have summer for two weeks every eight years or so, we might as well appreciate it. Same goes for the
Put me on a plane anywhere and I’ll probably tell you how it totally met my expectations. Call it globalization, or media overload. Blame it on the internet or on movie aesthetics, but when I went to New York — just to drop an example here of what I mean — it felt like I’d been here many times before. In fact,
The city hides its secrets pretty well. To the unschooled eye, Berlin might be explored in a very quick fashion with nothing much that lies beneath the surface. But there are so many perspectives to challenge and even more fences to climb, we’re just getting lazier, thinking this and that is all there is. It’s not.
As we’ve announced a couple of days ago, the I Eat You Dinner is now ready for you to enjoy: for the next couple of days, you’ll be able to book your seats at an inviting table full of interesting people. Last night, I was offered the chance to participate in the first round of the pop up
Do you know these stereotype pictures of beautiful lonley beaches with some palms and turqoise water. I never really liked them. Not because of the beauty in it, but because they always seemed to be at the end of the world. Since I’m a city kid I need people around me and somehow an urban environment to feel well.
Interesting collaborations aren’t exactly rare, but only with THE SUPERLATIVE JOURNEY by WeSC x Smart do they come looking so good. It’s all about exploring the world: it’s all about the journey. That motto in mind, the makers of the collab have sent their people around the hottest metropoles of the world to return with masses
Let’s get real for a second: it’s not the buildings or the history of a city exclusively that make it a good place to be. In Berlin, it’s first and foremost the people who unite to create. Who meet each other and don’t judge where they’re from. Who get talking and find that something is missing in the
… that it's a socially deprived district, where the skyline of grey industrialized buildings blurs with an equally grey sky – well, that's just a petty, petty atrocity story. I want to tell you another story about this East Berlin district, a story of a Marzahn childhood.
I have been to Copenhagen twice before this trip but its always something else if you explore a city with the perspective of someone who is actually living there. My dear firend Niels moved there after he had lived in berlin for quite a while. He found a small beautiful room in Nørrebro which is the multi-cultural, streetart-clustered, well-designed espresso-bar
The Modersohnbrücke in Friedrichshain is famous for it’s one of a kind sundown viewing location. It’s the cheapest overview of the city including a wonderful lightning situation, so if you’ve ever wondered where to take your next date to, this is the right spot (although you probably won’t be alone. Modersohnbrücke usually is crowded, and you do
