Sunset reflecting on the tower of the Hotel Park Inn as seen from Münzstrasse in Berlin Mitte.
Not all houses are painted equally – some Berlin houses were last time renovated in the early nineties – and now the wall color is showing interesting patterns.
We actually went to the woods to look for mushrooms. We heart there were already some, even though usually the mushroom season would only begin in autumn. Anyways – one day there was this mushroom standing in the shadow of a birch tree, in the middle of the small lawn between the cottage and the lake. We didn’t really dare to pick it – so we left it in hope that maybe next year there would be some more to pick.
In some venues and locations it is strictly not allowed to take photos. I mostly do respect this decision and usually I won’t take any photos. But then again I can’t hold my horses and I just have to take a photo – at least one of the No Photo sign. Yay!
A sunny afternoon in the Mauerpark – somebody is working on his new graffiti piece, somebody else is watching. During the summer months the wall in Mauerpak is basically re-designed / re-decorated every sunday – so there is always something new to discover.
In the background you can see the floodlight of the football stadium of Friedrich-Ludwig-Jahn-Sportpark.
View from the Tempelhofer Feld to the North – in the far you can see the Berlin TV Tower and the minaret of the Şehitlik Camii Mosque at Columbiadamm.
A sign at Airport Schönefeld featuring ‘all’ the rental car players: Sixt, Hertz, Europcar, Avis etc. To me the the sign looks a bit – wierd. Is it really necessary to feature each and every company with its own logo? Shouldn’t it be enogh to point out, where to find a rental car? And also: i really like how the “P” was ‘repeaired’ with this little white angle on top of the “P” so that it suggests you’ll find the rental car stations inside a parking house.
Spring is here! The first Crocus is blooming, sun is shining – time for a walk in the park.
A sunny afternoon in Berlin Mitte – an walk in Dircksenstrasse with a view to the TV-Tower. Blue skies, and an S-Bahn passing by. I would even call it an almost perfect Monday afternoon.
View from the bridge Jannowitzbrücke towards the TV Tower – last Saturday night – or actually early Sunday morning – in the middle of the night. The TV Tower and the buildings by the water are reflected in the river Spree. Winter in Berlin can be rather dark, when there is neither snow nor ice around.
The Telefunken Hochhaus at Ernst-Reuter-Platz in Berlin Charlottenburg. The highrise building has 22 floors and with its 80 meters it once was the highest building of Berlin, until the Europa-Center was built in 1965. The building was built as the headquarters of the company Telefunken. When Telefunken and AEG become one company in 1975, the building was acquired by the city of Berlin.
For the past decades most of the building was used by the Technical University TU Berlin.
Early morning misty glory – view down Kastienallee towards the street corner of Schönhauser Allee a.k.a. Ecke Schönhauser. The neighborhood still seems to be asleep – only a tram waiting at the tram stop and a bicycle rider passing by. Lights reflecting on the wet street. In the background you see the iconic overpass of subway line U1 near Eberswalder station in the mist.
I like it a lot when it’s like this – a bit cold, a bit misty, a bit grey, a bit dark – during the winter time Berlin can look like this for weeks or even months.
