For us Spandau residents, it is simply part of the cityscape, the Spandau Citadel. For Berlin visitors, the Renaissance fortress is one of the sights in the district of Spandau that should not be missed.
In the district of Charlottenburg stands one of the most beautiful palaces in Berlin. We took a little walk around the palace and enjoyed the beautiful weather in the palace park.
During a walk some time ago I discovered a sign on a lamppost that indicated I was walking along the “Path of Memory”. Although I had already walked this path dozens of times, I had never seen this sign before and could not really imagine what or whom the memory should apply here.
In a side street of the Kurfürstendamm in the heart of Berlin is Ben Blu’s illusion theatre. It was rather by chance that we became aware of the illusion show in Berlin and spent a magical evening here.
on the way in the large housing estate Siemensstadt
I’ve been living in Siemensstadt for over 25 years now, but I haven’t really paid much attention to the architectural history of my neighborhood. Sure, I have seen tourist groups walking along here from time to time and I also know the signs on some rows of houses. But there must first be celebrated 100 years of Bauhaus, so that I then also realize, I live not only in a UNESCO World Heritage Site, I even live in a Bauhaus building by Walter Gropius!
Berlin, Open Monument Day 2018 – and I finally have time to join one of the free guided tours. In the program, a guided tour to a place that I would not have seen as a monument jumps into my eye.
