A New Subway and Train Map for Berlin

The Berlin transit map is probably one of the very first images a newcomer in the city gets familiar with. For a variety of reasons – the most obvious one being that it’s the ultimate guide when you’re coming back from a night out and your phone dies. But did you ever question the design of the map? Were your tired eyes ever lost along the rigid straight lines? Well, the bright minds behind the New Berlin Rapid Transit Route Map project thought the current official map needed some updating – rea...

A Stunning Video Tribute to Notre-Dame de Paris

International travel videographer Alex Soloviev has already blessed us with his two stunning Berlin travel videos The Inner Layer and Everyday Berlin. Now, on the quite sad occasion of the fire at Notre-Dame, he released a beautiful tribute video of the French Icon that he shot on the roof of the famous church – a place that is probably not going to be accessible for years to come. From here you see those parts of the church that were probably the most destroyed by the devastating fire earlier t...

Ode to Cologne: A German city full of views and brews

Gothic architecture, modern art and ‘singing beer’ give this cultural city its liberal atmosphereYou could think of Cologne as a sixth-form college to Berlin’s infinitely cooler art school. In comparison it feels as if it is all student cash bars and puppyish idealism, spider plants at every turn, and still a lot of love for the Beatles – Germany’s fourth largest city has been twinned with Liverpool since 1952.Go into any street in the centre and you’ll see a glorious muddle of architecture, 19t...

Der Palast – A Dance Competition About Gentrification

photos: Vismante Ruzgaite, GIFs: Frank R. Schröder.  Finding a nice apartment in Berlin has become a serious hustle. You have to compete with lots of other people for a little one-bedroom apartment for 800 Euros in Wedding – if you are lucky. All these other people have better jobs, more savings and a much more stable personality than you in stress situations. But imagine that instead of having to prove your financial security you would need to partake in a dance competition in front of your ...

UY: The Label That’s Making Waves on the Streets of Berlin

The Berlin-based all-black-everything design collective number one takes on the city in their new photo series. Staying true to their drapey and genderfluid aesthetic the Neukölln collective UY sends an array of diverse personalities from the studio into the urban jungle, creating visual disruptions and unexpected synergies in front of the lens. UY –  that’s Scandinavian minimalism fused with Middle Eastern influences in front of a rough Berlin backdrop. The collective, founded by Idan, a Tel...

Explore The Hidden Canals Of New Venice In Berlin

photo: © A.Savin, WikiCommons.  Many big capitols worldwide have parts of their cityscape inspired by each other. Like there is Little Italy in New York or a small China Town in London. Up until now, I thought that Berlin – in its authentic and unapologetic ways – is simply Berlin, no sugar added. But little did I know, that in the vast residential area of southeast Berlin, you can find a charming Adriatic idyll named New Venice. This peaceful and unexpectedly beautiful place has been charmin...

A Techno Ballet: Half Life by Sharon Eyal & Gai Behar

The contemporary dance piece “Half Life” by Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar that is performed by the Staatsballett Berlin takes the viewer to an abstract world where intensity is marking every gesture and every decision. A driving electronic beat makes the half-naked bodies of the dancers pulsate almost trance-like. The whole ensemble moves in unison as if it was one organism totally in synch with the music. The sweat on their skin makes every muscle glisten in the minimal light in front of the black ...

A Guide to Berlin’s Best Affordable Restaurants

In the last couple of years, Berlin’s gastronomic scene has certainly gained a lot in terms of diversity, originality and also quality. Understandably, this comes at a certain price. When I look at our listings of new restaurants of recent years the price tag for the most hyped new places has continuously risen. While it is probably a blessing for gastronomy entrepreneurs that people are finally spending more money on elaborate restaurant experiences – it also means that especially younger peopl...

3 True Berlin Stories of Ridiculous Dating Fails

illustrations: Berk Karaoglu.  I once compared the struggle of finding a soulmate in Berlin to doing groceries on a Sunday in that it only seems possible on limited occasions and in selected spots. Without acquiring a detailed schedule, you may just end up investing much hope and energy into an effort that won’t get you any further than the glass door through which you can only cast a longing gaze on what could have been. But since growing bitter seems to be the cardinal sin of undesired sing...

Deutschland – Rammstein Breaking Down Problematic German History

Berlin’s very own hard rock export goods, Rammstein, made a comeback last week with a brand new single and a music video directed by Specter Berlin. And although the band definitely caused many a controversy in their career spanning over a quarter of a century, the song ”Deutschland” has propelled them to the levels of scandal they might not have ever reached before. To me, the song itself begins in a way slightly reminiscent of Rammstein’s earlier work, and the very first line of the lyrics obv...

Berlin is Blooming: Spring Re-Openings 2019

Berlin awakens in Spring. And along with it the people, the cafes, restaurants, urban parks, and festivals are re...

The Abandoned Spreepark Will Open Its Gates Once Again

The Most Unconventional Berlin Bucket List

illustrations: Berk Karaoglu.  We decided to rethink the concept of a conventional bucket list and came up with scenarios that shamelessly embrace Berlin’s potential as the backdrop of some memorable experiences. And ‘’memorable’’ is actually somewhat of an understatement here – some of these shenanigans are simply unforgettable, even if some parties involved may indeed wish otherwise. While we are by no means condoning every single one of these actions, let alone encourage anyone to draw any...

Sasha Waltz: Rauschen – The Machine can hear you dance

photos: Olga Khristolyubova.   How might the world be like if machines were kings and humans were slaves? If powers were shifted and the automatization would prevail over emotion? In her newest piece Rauschen which premiered last week, Sasha Waltz managed to create a kaleidoscopic dystopian nightmare. The main topic: the struggle of man against machine and the toxic way our society revolves around our egos. For Sasha Waltz Rauschen is her first piece produced for the big stage of Volksbühne...

This Celebrity-Approved Tattoo Trend Is Perfect For Summer

In a year that's so far been dominated by dainty, delicate tattoos, it's unlikely that the latest trend would be the furthest thing from dainty or delicate — but it is. Chalk it up to Lady Gaga's A Star Is Born -inspired rose tattoo or Halle Berry's leafy reveal, but suddenly, everyone is talking about back tattoos.We're not talking about lower-back tattoos — those have yet to fully re-enter the zeitgeist. For now, we're talking about the kind of tattoos that run down your spine, often featurin...

Brits, Berlin, and Brexit: How British Citizens Can Stay in Berlin

Brexit checklist: a valid passport, Anmeldung, a print-out of your online registration form for the Ausländerbehörde, a paying job, German health insurance, a German bank account, a German driving license, and a year’s supply of decent cider. The 29th of March is nearly upon us, and after more than two years of “robust” negotiations, it’s looking more and more like we’re headed for a no-deal Brexit. So what does that mean for those of us from the UK who have decided to make Berlin our home? As w...

Berlin’s Very Own Mona Lisa

Berlin can boast some impressive murals, and it’s no surprise that the newest addition to the bunch has drawn immediate attention. The huge version of Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa is impossible to miss. She occupies the side wall of the East Side Hotel in Friedrichshain and presents an interesting contrast to the often abstract artworks from the East Side Gallery, which is just on the opposite side of the street. The Berlin art collective Die Dixons has previously been involved in noteworthy co...
