How Not to Get into Berghain Club Berlin – A Guide of 10 Tips

Spreetunnel Friedrichshagen

London hat einen Tunnel (Eröffnung 1902) unter der Themse, der wie ein U-Bahntunnel aussieht und nach Greenwich führt. Dieser ist tatsächlich genauso alt wie ein Berliner Spreetunnel.

In dem älteren Spreetunnel fuhren vor 1930 noch […] Continue Reading…

Das ‘Ein Quadratmeter Haus’ – Small is beautiful! Artikel für ‘OTA-Berlin Constituency Blog’ von Theo v. Couveren

Wednesday, July 25th, 2012

Während wir einen Kaffe bei Impala tranken, fiel mir schon dieses sonderliche Teil auf, was wie ein Kleidercontainer aussah. Nur komisch, dass Kleidercontainer von Filmteams begleitet werden.

In diesem Gebäude siedeln sich Künstler und Ärzte an. Einer dieser Künstler ist Jürgen Mayer H, wobei es sein könnte, dass […] Continue Reading…
