Getting out of this Berlin winter mess is the number one theme everybody talks about right now. It could be easy to join the party but we rather want to be your ambassadors for the sun with this post. Last november we got invited to visit the caribbean island Curacao together with Clemens of iGNANT, Katja
This is — by far — going to be the most unpopular post in our abroad category because it makes you want to escape even more from the dreading bad weather winter season. We all know that Berlin winters are cruel and merciless. All that said I’m apologizing for having just returned from the most awesome summer vacation ever.
It took me about four years of living in Berlin to finally see the stunning Soviet War Memorial at Treptower Park. Many people have been telling me about it — most of them being absolutely astonished by the massive impression of the memorial and by the fact that I hadn’t been there yet — and still it took another friend
Finding an Open Air dancefloor in Berlin ain’t a rocket science. Finding a good Open Air in Berlin — well, that’s an entirely different thing alright. Now, not all tastes are the same, so please beware: the measures of quality are all subject to my personal opinion. I like colorful decoration, boogie house music, nicely dressed up people and
When Thomas of BerlinBootsTouren asked us whether we wanted a free ride on a sunny afternoon on the Spree, we didn’t have to think twice about the opportunity. First of all: who says no to a free ride? And second of all: we love water. Even though you can’t just freely dip into the rather muddy waters of
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
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 though this time Germany seems to have a valid chance at grabbing the European Championship Cup, it seems as if the football craze has gone back a step from the heights it reached in 2010. After all, it’s “only” the European finals. Still: many people opt to watch the game with their friends at bars or
If you’ve recently visited the Tempelhofer Park you will most likely have noticed the fifteen gazebos scattered across the fields. They are part of the “The World Is Not A Fair” exhibition of the HAU (Hebbel am Ufer), an artistic project with a twist. Their program is one of self-reflected irony, putting the methods of the international
There are so many Open Airs in the city… on a good summer day it can be tricky to find out the “right one” . And because of Berlins risky weather situation — from Mauwi to Moscow in 3 seconds — one is tempted to stay in the neighborhood. There’s also no denying that not every Open Air is of high
Neukölln is not exactly famous for its broad choices in nice parks. With Tempelhof dominating the “park scene” in terms of reputation it always seems like such an effort to discover something new. Tempelhof is big enough for everyone after all. But the Körnerpark is something special indeed, perfectly laid in an up and coming
I wouldn’t exactly say that the RAW Tempel Location makes a good place for a BBQ, but it’s not too far off from grime-y places like Görlitzer Park either so we might just as well get the grill fired up. In any case, you may or may not remember that that’s where our Headquarters for FindingBerlin-Tours are,
