Finding Prora


Ber­lins his­tory extends through the whole of Ger­many. Some­times the leftovers of a col­lect­ive past can still be found all over the coun­try. In this case, Prora makes quite an impres­sion. Fel­low pho­to­grapher Andreas Bohlender gen­er­ously let us pub­lish his edit­or­ial and beau­ti­ful pic­tures of the aban­doned Nazi hol­i­day camp that never was. Thank you for

Gängeviertel Hamburg


The Gängevier­tel in Ham­burg has pro­duced a lot of media cov­er­age in the last couple of years. The Gängevier­tel used to describe the nar­row alleys between densely built build­ings in the old (and some new) parts of Ham­burg. So nar­row in fact that most of these quar­ters were torn down at the end of the 19th

It’s Hitze­frei Week on Find​ing​Ber​lin​.com, prob­ably the first and last time this sum­mer sea­son (awww). To cel­eb­rate the leftovers of sun­shine our friends from Arena are throw­ing a massive party on the week­end. Their line up is killing and the weather expect­a­tions are set. So if you’re new to Ber­lin, have no idea where to go

DO YOU FEED ME? — Hungry Bear Opening

17.08.2012 · 7 comments

Last week, some of the most import­ant people met to dis­cuss a very urgent mat­ter: what would the best Bagel in town look like? For­get about the ste­reo­type Ber­lin dishes. No more Döner, no more Curry­wurst. What this city needs is a proper Salad Bar and a fant­astic Bagel. Thus an idea was born; “one ring to rule

Marzahn Bike Tour — Childhood Memories & Alt-Marzahn

17.08.2012 · 3 comments

When Mat­thias sug­ges­ted we should make a bike trip to Mar­zahn and check out his child­hood home, my ini­tial reac­tion was some­where along the lines of “fuck naww man”. First of all, I would not ride out with my bike into unknown ter­rit­ory so far away from everything I know and love. And second, Mar­zahn is not exactly

Erholungspark Marzahn — Gärten der Welt

16.08.2012 · 4 comments

For some of the pearls among Berlin's recreational parks you have to travel further. In case of Erholungspark Marzahn it's a trip to the eastern periphery, where a park is located that overtops the most. Yesterday, we teamed up for a bike tour there and to visit its "Gärten der Welt", beautifully designed gardens from China, Japan and many more.

Even in this post-irony world, fic­tional storytelling is still import­ant for our worth­less souls to feel some­thing of a mean­ing­ful tingle. Unfor­tu­nately, it seems like the only com­munity of people who still care about filling young minds with fairy tales are the dev­ils of advert­ising. I would not be sur­prised if someone told me Harry Pot­ter was

Sonderweg Berlin — Prenzlauer Berg Tour

14.08.2012 · 4 comments

Pren­zlauer Berg is not exactly known to be hoard­ing under­ground secrets. The “scene”, how­ever broad and unspe­cific that term may be, has long moved towards other dis­tricts. Many fam­il­ies and a dom­in­at­ing upper middle class atmo­sphere shape the char­ac­ter­ist­ics of Pren­zlauer Berg nowadays. The children’s toy stores, plenty of cozy cof­fee shops and ice cream

Hansaviertel: the residents

10.08.2012 · 2 comments

Yesterday, we wanted to give an insight into Hansaviertel's history and architecture. Today, we aim to portray one of the neighbourhood's residents who, from the very first day, lives in a single-family house designed by Arne Jacobsen. We visited and listened to her story.

Finding Hansaviertel

09.08.2012 · 4 comments

When World War II was over, many Berlin districts, among them Hansaviertel, lay in ruins. Soon after, city planners took the opportunity and let famous architects such as Alvar Aalto, Arne Jacobsen, Egon Eiermann design and rebuild the neighbourhood. Today, Hansaviertel is an icon of modernist architecture.

We're astonished how fast time passed by: It's already a year since our dear friends from ArtConnect Berlin started their Social Media platform in order to bring this city's creative people together and let them share their skills for mutual projects, events and the like. To celebrate, they put together a heap of events.

FUZI U.V. TPK — Tattoo Show


Back in the late 1980, FUZI dis­coverd Sub­way Art — one of the very early pub­lic­a­tions about sub­way graf­fiti in New York. Soon he got hooked on graf­fiti and hip-hop cul­ture and star­ted to paint his name all over his dis­trict, the Parisian sub­urbs. He inven­ted his own style of graf­fiti paint­ing, he called it the “Ignor­ant Style”. Switch­ing

Johanna is a young artist and tex­tile designer from Straß­bourg / France. She arrived in Ber­lin with the night­train from Zürich /Switzerland in May 2011. “It was fuck­ing cold on that first morn­ing in the city” she says. You could have moved any­where in the world. Why Berlin? I vis­ited Ber­lin a couple of times in my hol­i­days and I always

Charité Campus Mitte

01.08.2012 · One comment

There is a spot amidst the city's heart that measures 180.000 m2, has its own street map, its own transportation system and, as some say, its own governmental structures with councils, committees authorities. Forming a little universe, the somewhat isolated Charité Campus Mitte has its own history and its own stories to tell.
