Street Life

What we see, what we do and who we meet: it usually happens right in our neighborhood. These little randoms make up most of our lives here in Berlin. With every little piece of the puzzle we hope to get closer to portraying an authentic picture of the city.

Stralau: A Cemetery

The peninsula Stralau is part of the district Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg and lies between the Spree and the Rummelsburger Bucht. On a Sunday afternoon, we headed over to visit the beautiful cemetery of this forgotten part of Berlin - and quickly found out why it was forgotten.

Kreuzberg: In Snow

2016 is "finally" seeing some snow and I'm NOT freaking out! I do hate everybody who's out on holidays in the Southern hemisphere right now.

Staycation: Schöneberg

Schöneberg is a blank spot on the map for me, so Fousieh took me out on an autumn walk through one of her favorite districts of Berlin. The weather was grumpy and the mood was eerie, just like Schöneberg kinda is.

Things to Do: Winter in Berlin

I am usually very dramatic about winter in Berlin, but I'll try to restraint myself. Here are a few ideas on how to spend cold days. Spoiler: don't spend them in the cold.

Lichtgrenze: 25 Jahre Mauerfall

For the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the city had planned a very intriguing and fantastic concept: the Lichtgrenze, a wall constructed of balloons that lit up the former border between West-Berlin and the GDR. After two days of illuminating (and thereby remembering) the division, the balloons went up into the air last night.

Hundekopf: Exploring Berlin by Camera

Patrick, of berlin-based photography blog Radiant Flux, has thought of a way to explore the city that would both expand his horizon and make for interesting photography. You can see all of his Hundekopf pictures on his blog. I invited Patrick to tell his approach to the project here and to share his perspective on Berlin in the future with us.
