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.


Club Doors: Day & Night 2015

29.07.2015 · 13 comments

Over four years ago, Mar­cus released a post on Find­ing­Ber­lin about how the Ber­liner club doors looked by day­light. The post became one of our biggest at the time, and people star­ted play­ing the game of “guess the door”. What it became to me, though: a list of clubs that were slowly disappearing. Now, in 2015, not only

Tandiss Travels: Berlin

27.07.2015 · 12 comments

There are only two things that Tan­diss loves more than Tan­diss: “Products”, and trav­el­ing with me. So it was such a great coin­cid­ence that we were asked to test stuff that was meant to be really use­ful when trav­el­ing. Unfor­tu­nately, we weren’t on vaca­tion. And we’re not going on vaca­tion any­time soon, either (well — I am not going

Flying Kites



short notice: Posters of Berlin


Ber­lin com­mu­nic­ates via lamp posts and walls most of the time. Whether it’s lost pets or more obscure requests, the walls of Ber­lin some­times resemble ancient cave walls and their rudi­mental sign lan­guage. And, because this is the Inter­net, there is a web­site where all of those notes are actu­ally col­lec­ted: Notes of Ber­lin. But there’s

Apps & Urbanity: How Social Media Is Changing Berlin

You’re prob­ably read­ing this on your mobile phone because of two reas­ons: a) I finally got around installing a plu­gin that would actu­ally dis­play the site on mobile (wel­come to 2015), and b) because it’s more con­veni­ent, and you just wanted to see what the mys­ter­i­ous Google query of “Ber­lin cock Orani­en­straße party” would yield. Yes, this

14 Perfect Berlin Summer Snacks

08.07.2015 · 6 comments

Snacks are my staple dish. Any­thing that fits into my bag eas­ily, or can be accessed on hand when walk­ing by the selling store, is enough to sat­isfy the con­tinu­ous, raging hun­ger inside of me. In Ber­lin, it’s easy to get over­stuffed on junk food, but when you’re roam­ing the streets in the sum­mer, there are so many options

Adidas FANATIC Tournament 2015 Snapshots


I remem­ber my first year at the Adi­das FANATIC tour­na­ment (and, if I’m not mis­taken, it used to be called adicup and we took pic­tures back then, too, although the first post from 2010 was deleted since because I have the power to erase and modify my per­sonal his­tory AS I PLEASE). I was very intim­id­ated by all the

Save The Date: Summer Events 2015


Ber­lin is a crazy place to be in the sum­mer, and so dif­fer­ent from the rest of the sea­sonal turns. It doesn’t really mat­ter if the weather is crap, it usu­ally is, but the rush of tour­ists flock­ing in and out, as well as an extens­ive list of tra­di­tional sum­mer events that range from street food

Throwback Thursday: 2006 Kreuzberg / Neukölln Apartment prices

My pre­cious friend Georg just sent me over a list of apart­ment list­ings in Ber­lin from Septem­ber 2006. He was look­ing for a new place to live back then, and for whatever reason, he saved a list of inter­est­ing places. People have been talk­ing quite a while about how Ber­lin has become more expens­ive, but just how much more

Happy #GoSkateboardingDay!


I have a very spe­cial rela­tion­ship to skate­board­ing: I tried it once and hurt myself really badly, so I decided to crawl back to my spot in the shade and keep drool­ing over the sweet boys who were doing tricks on the curbs. Ever since those glor­i­ous skate­park days of my homet­own have passed, I haven’t really been in

Spring/Summer Snapshots


Let’s be hon­est: this sum­mer is sure off to a slow start. Whenever the tem­per­at­ure drops below 20°, there’s a slight mass-panic to be felt in Ber­lins streets. Was?! SPARGELZEIT IST SCHON VORBEI UND ES IST IMMER NOCH SCHEISSWETTER? Well. One good thing: when the sun finally does show its pretty face, every­body throws spon­tan­eous parties out­side. Here

(Big) city life sucks some­times. Even in moments of clar­ity and calm, some­thing or rather someone is going to pass by and fuck up your day. Of course, most of us have become jaded enough. Most of us know all the Sim­mel the­ory there is about big cit­ies. Most of us have given their last

Big City Life some­times gives me the feel­ing of los­ing my con­nec­tion to nature or what our romantic ima­gin­a­tion of it might be. As it happened, look­ing out of my win­dow into the rather bleak court­yard of my apart­ment made me feel trapped in concrete. On a global scale, the ongo­ing urb­an­iz­a­tion makes it more and

Making Decisions — with Urban Sports Club (pt. 1)

26.05.2015 · One comment

Mak­ing decisions has never been my strong suit. Espe­cially when they are related to con­clud­ing con­tracts. As soon as I’m to be pinned down to a monthly pay­ing mem­ber­ship, I freak out. I always wanted to do Pil­ates, Yoga or a dan­cing class, but again I couldn’t really decide which way to go. Doing all of the three would be too expens­ive and what
