Iron Beauty On Gendarmenmarkt In Berlin

Kiss Your Honey On Gendarmenmarkt At Night

Have the city’s best wiener schnitzel for dinner at Lutter & Wegner, and then take your honey for a stroll around Gendarmenmarkt at night.  The beautifully lit architecture is impressive to behold and the center of the plaza is the perfect place for a sweep-em-of-their-feet kind of kiss.  Has that ever happened to me?  Not […]

The German Museum Of Technology In Berlin

The weather’s gotten cold cold cold in Berlin and that means it is time to start loving our indoor attractions! A lesser known museum choice is one that I was surprised to have enjoyed as much as I did. Don’t be turned off by the entrance to the German Museum of Technology (Deutsches Technikmuseum Berlin), […]

I Want to Wash the Windows of the Fernsehturm

So I was sitting in the revolving restaurant in the Fernsehturm, sipping a lovely glass of champagne with a friend, admiring the setting sun and the vastness of Berlin sprawling to the horizon in every direction, and a thought occurred to me: How do they wash the windows? I mean, check out this short video […]

Don’t Hate Me For Hating Currywurst!

I hate currywurst.  There.  I said it.  Being so in love with Berlin as I am means that sentence borders on — no, it is — blasphemy.  The people here go nuts for the (pork?) stuff, and I really cannot understand this gastronomic mystery.  In fact, I’ve been told that Germans eat more than 70 […]

The Best Of Berlin’s Street Art Photos And Videos

One of the things I love the most about Berlin is the street art.  The expression of rebellious individuality and free-thinking is the very character of Berlin, and it’s graffiti is the badge it proudly wears.  With a glance around at any corner, I feel the energy and inspiration bubbling through the cobbled streets, in […]

Celebrating Alba’s White Truffles In Berlin’s Bocca di Bacco Restaurant

Bye Bye Monbijouplatz, I Will/Won’t Miss You

As they say here in Europe, it is with one sad eye and one glad eye that I am planning to move from my current home on Monbijouplatz in Mitte, up north into Prenzlauerberg. It’s hard to believe that I’ve been here nine months already, because I honestly never felt like I finished moving in. […]

Colors@Concorde: The Fresh And French Party

In the world of all that is hip in Berlin, sometimes the central-western kiezes (especially Charlottenberg and Wilmersdorf) feel a little left out of the buzz, despite being “juuuust a bit outside” the HIP ZONE.  My Prenzlauerberg/Mitte/Kreuzberg rooted neighbors will tell you that’s because there is nothing over there that is hip enough to buzz […]

Creativity, Culture, And Cuisine With Slow Travel Berlin

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the Slow Travel Berlin Event at Markthalle IX in Kreuzberg.  The gathering was entitled “A Celebration Of Creativity, Culture & Cuisine,” and it was all that and more… The program was packed with cool activities and a boatload of Berlin tweeps showed up, such as @iamkosmonaut, @uberlinblog, @smonicats […]

Zionskirchplatz And A Tasty Flammkuchen

I had to amend this post because my talented filmmaker friend Luci Westphal, creator of the In A Berlin Minute web series has just released (Sept. 27, 2012) a new episode featuring Zionskirche, the subject of this post, along with several other beautiful important churches from the peaceful revolution: And now for the photo gallery […]
