Berlin Day Hike: A Sunday City Walk

Today we just had a little lazy walk through Wedding and Mitte. I wore my linen slippers despite heavy cloudiness, because I wanted to, and of course it started raining and I had wet feet again. We had a little meal in a turkish restaurant on Badstrasse, we met some friends who had a stand on the flee market at Mauerpark and we went to the flee market on Arkona Platz to order a stand for November (!).

Sitting behind the stand at Mauerpark for a while and chatting with my friend Eddi – who is going to do “Interail for Seniors” through some eastern bloc countries – I looked up to some potential clients and saw a familiar face in front of me but this was so unlikely that I didn’t believe it at first. Standing there was Amy and her husband Jean-Paul from Luxemburg which I met on the Camino de Santiago in 2015. She is here for Fashion Week. // OMG. Fashion Week again. That is why there are so many strangely dressed people in town! // Next time when you’re in town I’ll have more time for you guys. Promised!

Look at those plants! Berlin is so green. The little park without a name behind my house is a complete wilderness now. There a millions of flowers, trees and berries growing this time of the year. I wonder if I should harvest some blackberries soon?

Teufelsberg Drachenberg

Berlin Day Hike: A Short Walk To Teufelssee

Since you cannot visit Teufelsberg (Devils’ Mountain) without those boring and expensive guides anymore I haven’t been there. In fact, Grunewald is still a green beauty above all. The cake at Ökowerk is fantastic and we took a short swim in the very cold and refreshing Teufelssee (Devils’ Lake) together with – apparently – the rest of Berlin 🙂

Location: Teufelsseechaussee – Drachenberg – around Teufelsberg – Teufelssee and back on the Teufelsseechaussee / Distance: 6 km / Weather: 27 °C, sunny / Camera: iPhone 6
