Berlin is the special place we call our home. While travelling the continents and discovering the world, we are constantly stumbling over cities that somehow remind us of our beloved home far, far away. This is about Finding Berlin in the distance. Because home is where your heart is.

Dresden & The Saxon Switzerland National Park

There’s always some­thing about me. I’m either extremely moody, stressed out, exor­bit­antly over­ex­cited or just plain weird, which is prob­ably my nor­mal state. When my sig­ni­fic­ant other told me that per­haps I needed a little more phys­ical activ­ity to get my focus on track — maybe a little get-away for the week­end to cre­ate the neces­sary

Running Amsterdam


Tan­diss, our new sports– and lifestyle/health cor­res­pond­ent, is for­cing me to be healthy. Incid­ent­ally, she is also my flat mate, which means now I have to do all sorts of sports. Among them yoga, run­ning, and dying a little bit inside every time I have to “watch my cal­or­ies”. I am a vic­tim of her sports-dictatorship. Over are the fatty

About Doing Nothing Particularly Exciting In London

11.03.2015 · 4 comments

As I’ve grown older, wiser and fat­ter, I have real­ized that there are many dif­fer­ent ways to travel — and not all of them have to be par­tic­u­larly excit­ing. I mean, most travels are primar­ily exhausting. And most of the vari­ous attempts in dis­cov­er­ing dif­fer­ent coun­tries & people have a lot to more do with blown up expect­a­tions of one’s self and

Finding Torino


To make it clear right away: I love Italy. In a really Ger­man way. Ger­mans are real romantics with this one. They have expressed a deep desire for the Italian land­scape and its cul­tural achieve­ments; most sig­ni­fic­antly found in the writ­ings of Goethe. Even though the post­mod­ern ver­sion of Italy is very dif­fer­ent from its aspir­ing Renais­sance self, I am

Oman — Detox For The Mind


Although Ber­lin hasn’t been crippled by winter as much this sea­son, every year we long for another escape into the sun. And every year — some­times more than once — this ques­tion pops up: where to go? The Carib­bean are too expens­ive (and frankly, a little tacky, although I cer­tainly wouldn’t mind the cash to up and leave) and everything even

5 Things To Do On A Stopover In Dubai

03.02.2015 · 2 comments

In the Find­ing Dubai edit­or­ial, I made pretty clear that Dubai might not be for every­one, but is cer­tainly worth a stop­over of about 48 hours if you’re at it. Now, there are many reas­ons to go to Dubai: the sheer sight of such a mod­ern city will make you ques­tion the era in which we’re liv­ing. But

Finding Dubai: Sci-Fi City

03.02.2015 · 2 comments

Every­one has heard and seen Dubai in count­less of doc­u­ment­ar­ies and movies about the urban future. Indeed, many people have already vis­ited Dubai by acci­dent already: the city is prac­tic­ally right in the cen­ter of the world, mak­ing it a travel hub from West to East and vice versa. Not just geo­graph­ic­ally, though: it is also,

Finding Graz

09.01.2015 · 4 comments

Oh my dear Graz, you really are like an ex-boyfriend or girl­friend, aren’t you. Some­times you feel like the one that got away, and I’m still in love with your beau­ti­ful old town with all those little wind­ing alleys and majestic build­ings, your ever bloom­ing scene of cre­at­ive movers, thinkers and doers and your intim­ate

Finding Detroit

10.12.2014 · 2 comments

It has been almost a year since Mar­cus and I vis­ited Detroit (remem­ber Mar­cus’ impres­sions of the city?). It was the last des­tin­a­tion of a road trip we did for a small video pro­duc­tion. I’d wanted to share my impres­sions before, but time passed and it seemed wrong to post these icey pic­tures in the begin­ning of spring. We

Snapshots from “Plötzlich am Meer” Festival


Two things con­vinced me to go to another fest­ival in my life­time: the Baltic Sea and the people who were com­mit­ted to going with me. Although I had been dis­ap­poin­ted before from my Fusion visit and a couple of other fest­ivals, the Plötz­lich am Meer Fest­ival at the Pol­ish coast kept its prom­ises. A mix of good music

Finding Ibiza


The Balearic island Ibiza has been known to me as former hip­pie enclave that turned into a com­mer­cial­ized and some­what cliché Techno-Mallorca some­time dur­ing the 90ies. Most people will think of wasted tour­ists in over­priced clubs, bump­ing to Skrillex and Avi­cii, while the beaches are too crowded to enjoy. How­ever, in the past couple of years,

Opera Festival 2014: Arena Di Verona

Hier haben sich Romeo und Julia vor langer Zeit die ewige Liebe geschworen, und die Stadt im Nor­dos­ten von Italien bietet ein­iges, um dieser wun­der­schönen Liebesgeschichte gerecht zu

5 Ideas for Escaping Summer 2014

30.07.2014 · 4 comments

Before long, sum­mer in Ber­lins turns into a grey mix of windy tem­per­at­ures between 15 and 21 degrees and per­petual drizzles of rain. Aye, that’s sum­mer! Although we’ve been blessed with some great days and nights, the dreaded slump has turned into real­ity. People are either vaca­tion­ing the whole of Europe or sit­ting inside the magical study halls

Festival Season with Diesel — Win tickets to Berlin Festival*


Since the com­mon Ber­liner loves to excess­ively party out­side of Ber­lin, fest­ival sea­son is more than just a vague prom­ise of great music and sun­shine: it’s a com­mit­ment to the life­style. There are big fest­ivals, such as the MELT! only an hour away, there are small fest­ivals, such as the Möhre which we’ve told you about, and
