Warning: Subversive themes


It was in the high 30s the entire time, so, my apologies for sweaty photos

On the way to The East Side Gallery. Delightful.


East Side Gallery


The ‘1up’ and vertical writing are famous

Before accidentally stumbling into a commune/squat

Corporate sellout

Wandering back towards Alexanderplatz

Heading home for the evening


Started at Brandenburg Gate


Alternative Berlin walking tour. Started at Alexanderplatz, with a ride on the underground to U Kottbusser Tor

Starting at Mariannenstraße, Kreuzberg


We then wandered up around the squats and to the “Treehouse”. No photos were requested by the guide.

Ended up back at the river before heading into Yaam - a Caribbean cultural space (and bar!)


A quick train ride to Berlin Warschauer Straße station and into an old train depot filled with Berlinny things

Grabbed some lunch from the donair store that used to have the entrance to the aformentioned area in one of the toilet stalls before heading back home for a midday break

Resumed, heading to Museum Island

And that was Berlin
