The riverbanks of the Landwehrkanal are the premier hangouts of Berlin. In Kreuzberg, the Boule court at the water (off Forster Straße and Liegnitzer Straße) are especially popular in the summer.
Boule is a very classy sport. Whenever I pass by the players I keep thinking to myself: wow, this is the “savoir-vivre” everyone’s talking about. Last weekend, the 1. BCK (“1. Boule Club Kreuzberg”) organized a Boule tournament including drinks and a BBQ. What an anachronistic sight: that slow and calm sport of Boule amidst the hectic and urban life of Kreuzberg.
