The New York Times have recently published an article about Berlin describing the experiences of a temporary expat in the city. As always, whenever Berlin gains international attention, Berliners feel somewhat flattered. It’s nice that New Yorkers might think our city is interesting enough to publish words on it. But the article in question does not
(press text) The loss of MTV and its formatted structures as a central display was maybe after all blessing for the music video. It is as vivid as ever and shows great flexibility in developing new forms and experimenting with new aesthetics and topics. The presentation will explore some of these developments – and, of

After last months crazy party with Litauen prodigys Vaiper and Fingalick, WeBoogie returns to Chesters Inn (former location of the sexy KitKat Club). We were so stunned by sounds and visuals of the last party that we just can’t miss out on the boogie tomorrow: more hip hop, jacked beats, bassed rap and vroom vroom
I think Marcus still hasn't been to the Kreuzberg. Not the district, but the actual hill. He's been living in Berlin for a hundred and two years and we once promised to take him there. Judging by Stefans pictures, it seems like the weather conditions are perfect for a serene view from above. The park is a 12,8 hectar area on the Kreuzberg. The Kreuzberg - translation "cross mountain" - is the highest natural peak of Berlins city center. Yes, the highest. Which means Berlin is as flat as an iron board. The Kreuzberg - the actual Kreuzberg hill - is the pimple in Berlins face. But it's a really nice pimple. The green park and slopes which you can picknick on are very inviting to spend a whole afternoon on top of the city.
Berlin is a small – wait, it’s a TINY world. So when good friends throw a party we’re there to bash with them! The JOURNELLES chef Jessie (of LesMads.de fame) is one of the coolest people in town and we’re happy to celebrate the launch of her new online fashionzine. She’s hosting a big and

I’ll be honest: there is literally nothing attractive about Potsdamer Platz and I’ll rarely ever pass by. It’s boring and disconcerting, pretty much the typical go-to tourist hot spot with a mix of fancy restaurants and posh office buildings. You can expect some stuff to see, but a colorless lack of human interaction. The only
(Jan Herdlicka is a constant contributor to our site. We love his analog black and white approach and embrace this quiet but powerful series he took in the Grunewald. Read his thoughts about it and like his page!) Although the photographs were taken in immediate nearness to big cities, they seemingly show impalpable places. The eye
We are super proud to present some of our pictures from our trip to Stockholm in a fresh picture book!

The release of the book will be celebrated with a perfectly cozy Sunday afternoon at Fluxbau.

Neon lights shine brine by night. Where Karl Marx Straße lacks in charm and aesthetics by daylight, this street knows how to be flashy as soon as the sun goes down and the neon shop- and headlights go on. The patch between Rathaus Neukölln and Karl-Marx-Str. U-Bahn station seems especially magnetic to peculiar situations. The
In case you've missed it: Yesterday's dense fog didn't leave any doubts that autumn has finally arrived. Upon coming home to Kreuzberg I was amazed about the city being densely covered with thick mist – enjoy for yourself how beautiful and eery the Oberbaumbrücke sat enthroned over the Spree yesterday.
The most astonishing places are often the most hidden ones. Isolated from their surrounding, one has to know about these spots, otherwise it's highly unlikely to suddenly stumble over them. That's certainly true for Dong Xuan Center – a place, that I always considered as as exotic as Berlin can be.
