Urban Outfitters – Berlin Mitte Opening

When I was out walking one evening last week the lights in a new shop on Weinmeisterstrasse in Berlin Mitte caught my eye.  As I got closer I was able to see ‘Urban Outfitters’ written all over the window. Now, I’ve been a fan of Urban Outfitters since I went to my first store in San […]


Siegessäule (Gold Else) – Berlin’s Victory Column

After a successful trip to the Französischer Dom I decided it was time to tackle the Siegessäule (Victory Column) and get some more great views over Berlin. Known by the locals as Gold Else (Berliners have a fondness for giving their public buildings nicknames), the column is topped by a gilded bronze statue of the […]


Französischer Dom – Berlin’s French Cathedral

I decided that a clear, bright day was the ideal time to do a spot of climbing and experience some of Berlin’s best views and I started in the morning with a visit to the Französischer Dom (the French Cathedral) on the Gendarmenmarkt, one of Berlin’s more picturesque squares, and later in the day visited the […]


Luigi Zuckermann

I covered a lot of Prenzlauer Berg and Mitte on foot today so had worked up quite an appetite by lunchtime.  Unfortunately, it seemed that I wasn’t the only one. Luckily, I found a spot to sit down at Luigi Zuckermann at the second attempt. On my first pass the place was packed so Plan […]


Krasselts Imbiss

Lunchtime had been and gone long ago by the time I managed to make up my mind about what I would like to eat.  I had been on a mission to track down a DVD for my Friday night entertainment and having visited Das Schloss, I realised that I wasn’t far from Krasselts Imbiss. Unfortunately, […]

Stolpersteine 12: In memory of Ruth Sussmann and Gittel Sussmann (Christinenstrasse 35) in Berlin

Stolpersteine 11 & 12

The Stolpersteine I saw in Berlin today were tributes to Julius Prager and Rosa Prager outside Strassburger Strasse 33-36 and Ruth Sussmann and Gittel Sussmann outside Christinenstrasse 35. I’ve added the photos to the gallery here. My first post about Stolpersteine gives more background about these memorials to the victims of National Socialism created by artist Gunter […]


Curry 36 – Currywurst in Berlin

Curry 36 is another very popular Imbiss and the sight of my introduction to Currywurst during my first trip to Berlin in 2009.  I chose it for my first meal in Berlin because it was in the Lonely Planet Encounters guide I had bought and the idea of a Curry / Sausage combo appealed to […]


A sunny stroll around the Kollwitzkiez

It was a bright sunny day when I woke up this morning so I decided to make the most of it and instead of studying German got outside earlier in the morning.  First, I walked the streets between Torststrasse, Danziger Strasse, Schönhauser Allee / Kollwitzstrasse and Prenzlauer Allee.  And after a trip to Curry 36 […]


Stolpersteine 7, 8, 9 & 10

Today’s walk around residential streets in Prenzlauer Berg / Pankow yielded a number of Stolpersteine sightings. My first post about Stolpersteine gives more background about these memorials to the victims of National Socialism created by artist Gunter Demnig. Johanna Falk outside Erich-Weinert-Strasse 7. Salomon Paskusz and Roschen Paskusz just a short distance along the road […]
