Building a Map of Berlin's Immigration History
A corner of my favorite wide & green space in the city is gone. It will be turned into a walkable map of Berlin. One of the exhibits planned for Berlin’s 775th anniversary. City of Diversity is the topic - presenting 800 years of immigration to Berlin. Opening on August 25th - October 28th.
Test-run of Guided Bike Tour on July 13
Join me for a tour I’ve been working on but haven’t shared with anyone yet. It covers three distinctly different parks in Prenzlauer Berg and Friedrichshain. Please bring your bike and about 2 hours of time. There will be cobblestones, some hilly terrain, and unpaved paths. Tour ends on Heinrich-Roller-Str/Prenzlauer Allee - and, if you like, a drink & chat at Café Hilde on...
Antipodes - coffee & breakfast match made in...

Went for a ride through the park this morning. Built from 1846-48, it has been changed, destroyed, and restored since. From the 1950’s through late 90’s it even had a huge swim stadium which held up to 8,000 people. Four columns of the former entrance are all that’s left. And lots of open space.
