Kranhaus – that means something like harbor crane houses, and I think the source of the name is obvious. When I came to Cologne, those new opened houses where on top of my list of places to visit. I completely adore that modern architecture and would love to have an office in such place.
It’s been one of the last days of summer in Tegel, one of the last days to catch the green leaves on the trees. But now autumn started (or better: is about to finish) and soon the lake will be frozen and covered by snow. No matter what time of the year it is. Tegel, that place is always beautiful.
Have you been wondering about the photo in the header of my blog for a long time by now? Well, here is the full photo.
On Father’s day it’s a tradition in Germany, to meet with your buddies, grab a lot of beers and go for a hike. We usualy do this close to the areas where we grew up or where we are living now, enjoying time in an area which you can actually call home. After 11 hours of walking, that’s where our day ended. As it was a cloudy and cold day in may, the finish couldn’t have been better.
Tegel, the place where I grew up and the place where I currently live. When people come to visit me, almost always I hear them say “You really still live in Berlin? I thought it would be much more chaotic in such a big city.” Well yeah, it is. But luckily there are parts which are quite relaxed. And Tegel is one of them. And that what makes Berlin so awesome. It’s a huge city with all advantages and disadvantages. But still there are so many green areas that make you forget you’re in one of the biggest towns of Europe.
