This was already Sunday and as in Germany most museums are closed on Mondays, it was long overdue for my date with Tristan. The plan was to meet my Berlin friend in the early afternoon, to walk along Dircksenstraße and visit Haus Schwarzenberg, to have a look at a number of new murals there. To […]
As I’m completely taken out of action by a terrible flu and my main activity at present is coughing the walls, I don’t have that much to tell about news from the Ruhr area, even if I’m sure that there are a lot of news, worth telling them. My Berlin friend does his best to […]
Does anyone know anything about the sticker shown below? Sticker; Unknown Artist at Dircksenstraße It is only a single one, my Berlin friend has found at Dircksenstraße.

But my „lady’s program“, I had planned for this last morning, was […]
This day I had a date for lunch with my Berlin friend. We agreed that a regular meal in a common restaurant was boring and doesn’t meet our requirements.
The next day was a Sunday and as I was still flashed by my Kreuzberg experiences the day before. I got a bumpy start and decided to take it easy with a visit at Haus Schwarzenberg. This is an area which is easy manageable. My Berlin friend gave the recommendation not to miss the S-Bahn […]
