Berlin in October – 1st day

Berlin is always worth a visit, but October isn’t the time of the year I prefer to visit the city. You may guess it, it’s because of all those additional visitors, who are focussed on the historical aspects of the reunion of Germany and the 3rd of October. And this year they all were very […]

Berlin Mural Festival goes to the 2nd round

It’s out now: Berlin Mural Fest goes to the 2nd round. And it seems that the Dixons, who are the organizers, have learnt from the faults of last year. Today they have announced the locations of some of the walls and the identity of the artists, painting them. For those who are in Berlin a […]

Paste Up Festival Germany 2nd Edition

Do you remember the 1st Paste-Up Festival Germany, which took place at Deutsche Oper Berlin last year? I would like to draw your attention to its second edition, which will take place at Revaler Straße 99, at the property of RAW, on the 7th of September. Everyone who likes can be a part of it. […]

Notes from a Berlin friend has got a new home

I would like to draw your attention to the brandnew spin off of my blog streetartwalks. Due to a lack of free space I had to come up with something new. And so I established streetartwalks reloaded. There you’ll find my new Berlin branch. It will be filled more or less frequently with the pictures […]

Notes from a Berlin friend

Graffiti with political content is rare, but happens from time to time. My Berlin friend has found one of the examples at HoF Mauerpark. With mass protests the population of Hongkong prevented the conclusion of an extradition agreement with China. The shown piece is made by an unknown artist to support and appreciate the people […]

Notes from a Berlin friend

Passers of Walter Benjamin Platz in Berlin Charlottenburg currently enjoy a spectacular installation made by QUINTESSENZ. It is titled “COLORMAZE” and shows a complete color circle. They have installed and moved 8,5 tons of wood. Over 10,000 screws turned in and several liters of white lacquer used for priming. The installation is built as a […]

Notes from a Berlin friend

In these days my Berlin friend is close to dispair. The hot temperatures make it difficult to break free from the shady garden, but in Berlin things are on the move; no good times to stay in the shadows!

Notes from a Berlin friend

Styro seems to have spent hybernation with crafting. Now, after reawakening from the winter sleep, he seems to be on his way, to set his creatures free, wherever he stands or goes. And my Berlin friend finds them, even if not looking for something special. Nobody stays home in this bright weather.

Notes from a Berlin friend

I have no idea, how my Berlin friend is able to find those installations, to make me happy. This little guy, made by STYRO, seems to be in critical condition. Will he risk jumping off with his provisionally paraglider? And will his crash helmet prevent him from injuries? I spontanously named him Otto, because he […]

5 days of Berlin – Departure

Just like the day of arrival, the day of departure is always half a day. As usual, I took a train in the late afternoon, to reach home in the evening. To fill the time until my departure in the late afternoon, as usual, a light touristic „lady’s program“ was planned, at least until my […]
