I love Berlin. September2020

in hive-184437 •  last month 

I love Berlin, I love Germany.
I was here for two weeks climbing through windows. I am an URBAN EXPLORER
You can see my work in our community, https://peakd.com/@hive-104387 Urban Exploration. My posts there will be ongoing for a few weeks as there is do much to upload and share.

In the evening I spent my time wandering round parts of the city, not for me the rebuilt tourist attractions nor the corporate street art on the tourist trail. I hope you enjoy.

I quickly learned early on that if you can see this iconic tower you won’t get lost!

I was told that these brass plates could be found all over the city, these were the only ones I spotted as I walked up to Weißensee cemetery; some remarkable memorials, 115,000 graves dating back to the 1880’s

As I walked around the housing areas a wealth of contrast

I love posters and randomness on lamp posts

Not for me the “touristic” corporate street art, the trip advisor tours, the money making greed to draw you in. Am I being to cynical? These are stunning works in my eye.

Some great shots of our home city. Seems like you enjoyed yourself while you were here. Glad you were able to explore the city before some of the latest measures have made it nearly impossible to come here as a tourist! Come back and visit again and catch a concert when the world is "normal" again ;)

Thank you, yes a wonderful city and country,
I shall return

Thank you.
Yes I really! Loved Berlin, and the countryside
I will return

It's a beautiful city and the street art is stunning, to me though.

I feel bad for the homeless people

Alas it’s a sad fact of life

I like Berlin. Have been a couple of times in the last few years. It is not typical of Germany with more of a mix of cultures than most cities. It is somewhere I could consider living. It was interesting to go there when the wall was coming down, but now it is just a line that you keep crossing.

!BEER

Very diverse stuff, I was there in January 2016.. it was snowing and bloody freezing. I can't remember seeing the iconic tower. All this was before my UX days and I now have a different perspective on things.

I loved the beer and food.. that's why Germany is one of my fave places to visit.

Yes have to agree UE does alter your view on the world. I loved the food too, though the curry houses I visited were rubbish! Since when does a vindaloo come from the kitchen as hot as a korma!

Stick to what they are good at.. .Schnitzels and things!

Had some nice burgers too
