Stasi-Führungsbunker in Biesenthal

Approximately 2 km North of Kleiner Wukensee we found an ancient GDR military area with ruined buildings and subterranean bunkers. When we had wifi again, we found out, that the big hill we saw, was the former “Stasi-Führungsbunker” (bunker of the leaders of the ministry of State Security).

Hobrechtsfelde

On our way home we passed through Hobrechtsfelde and made a stop at the wonderful James Biergarten. Have a perfect vast view into the fields and a craft beer!

Berlin Day Hike: Lights In The Lake

This Saturday I have been to Tegeler See and had this crazy February light showing off the winter colors of nature. The peacefulness of this hike – there have been quite some people because of the weather, and the forecast which predicted storms and rain starting Sunday – was interrupted, when I walked along the border of a residential area (Konradshöhe) with nearly no traffic. A car approached from behind me and honked. As there was a lot of space for the driver to pass, I shrugged my shoulders in a WTF?-gesture without turning around. He opened his window—a guy in his 60s or 70s—and swore at me in a very disturbing and loud way (cunt, ugly ass, fuck off, bitch). I asked quite calmly what kind of problem he had and he continued insulting me. When he started steering his car in my direction, I turned onto a small path into the forrest.
I was kind of upset for a while walking through the underbrush and even turned around several times to see if he would follow me. And I asked myself what leads people to behave like idiots?

It’s only February and there are already five dead cyclists in Berlin. And I’m guessing this kind of attitude is one the reasons for that.

Berlin Day Hike: A Rainy February Sunday

One of those days. When you stray around in your city – necessary sometimes, to get a feeling of belonging and full of surprising discoveries. When I came here a long time ago, the historical Moltkebrücke (the bridge with the lions you can see below) was a solitary building in the middle of nowhere. And while there are some new, quite impressive corporate and private buildings, their aesthetic expression seams meaningless and empty compared to the Haus der Kulturen der Welt (Kongresshalle).
My Dad would have had his 76 birthday today.

Wild Berlin

Sometimes, on a walk through the city, you see more animals than in the forest. For example a grey heron 🙂
