These boots were made for walking

As there was a fair chance of rain this afternoon I took my walk closer to home.  I walked the streets from Danziger Strasse in the South to Stargarder Strasse in the North and Schonhauser Allee in the West to Prenzlauer Allee in the East. I was quite taken by the Helmholtzkiez (the area around […]


Back to Kreuzberg

I was back wandering around the streets of Kreuzberg today and spotted another great C215 piece in a doorway near Görlitzer Bahnhof. When I got back home and was sorting through my photos I realised that I need to find a way to track where I have been in Berlin and what is left to […]


Vhils by the Spree

Vhils is one of my favourite street artists so when I first saw this piece from a boat chugging along the Spree in the summer I was gutted that I couldn’t get a clean photo.  Fortunately, the gates to the yard that the wall faces were open when I walked passed the other day and […]


Stolpersteine 4 & 5

I saw some more Stolpersteine in Berlin today whilst walking around Kreuzberg, mainly looking for street art.  My first discovery was a bit of a shock.  Outside a Chicken Stall on the corner of Skalitzer Strasse and Oranienstrasse I first saw this memorial to Friedrich Schulmeister. My first post about Stolpersteine gives more background about these […]


A wander around Kreuzberg in the sun

Before Christmas I went to Kreuzberg with my camera to get a picture of this Street Art piece by Victor Ash of an Astronaut (Cosmonaut, Spaceman, take your pick depending on where you come from) and spent some time walking around but it was raining so my photos weren’t great. As it was sunny this morning when […]


Stolpersteine 2 and 3

When I went out for a walk this afternoon I was hoping to find some more Stolpersteine to photograph.  Even with this in mind and having spent a lot of time studying the pavement I almost missed this memorial to Regina Schrimmer on Auguststrasse in Mitte.  The building in front of which it is laid […]



As my travels today took me back near Kreuzberg I decided to pop to Burgermeister for lunch as I had vowed to do in my A couple hours well spent post. Burgermeister is under the tracks of the U1 near the Schlesiches Tor stop and is a former toilet converted into a kitchen (an interesting […]


Stolpersteine – A Memorial Project

When I left Konnopke’s Imbiss yesterday, I crossed Schonhauser Allee and walked south a short distance to take a picture of these Stolpersteine.  I had walked passed these brass blocks a few times before an article on Slow Travel Berlin drew my attention to their meaning. Stolpersteine (the English translation is ‘Stumbling Blocks’) is the […]


Konnopke’s Imbiss

Konnopke’s my local Imbiss (snack outlet) so I thought it was only right that I should go there for my first Currywurst of 2012 and start what I hope will be a series of posts about Currywurst in Berlin. Currywurst is the culinary pride of Berlin and beloved by its citizens.  It is a pork sausage, […]

Naughty Bear: Street Art by Unknown Artist in Berlin

Street Art – July / August 2011

I’ve finally got around to uploading my Street Art photos from my holiday in Berlin 2011.  A return to spending more time exploring the streets means that there’s more of a selection than 2010. You can see my favourites here but here’s a little taster:
