The best about (East) Berlin is the creative vibe that you can feel everywhere. Talented musicians playing the streets, beautiful graffiti on buildings, arty ateliers on every corner, fashionable people, great places to grab a coffee and read a book. The best quarters in Berlin to do so are definitely Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain. Here is part three, explore.
RANDOM make sure to keep your eyes open and snap pictures whenever you can! There is so much beauty around, you’ll regret not having your camera ready at all time.
TACHELES even though Kunsthaus Tacheles (Oranienburgerstraße 54) is not what it used to be (it really smells like pee), it is still worth a visit. It holds a lot of graffiti art and ateliers.
TEMPELHOF we visited an abandoned airport. It was so weird and cool to cycle down the flight lanes! It is called Flughaven Tempelhof (Platz der Luftbrücke)
MONUMENT the Soviet War Memorial in Treptower Park was quite impressive. It is somewhat unknown, but I thought it was worth a visit. (Alt-Treptow 1)
ADVENTURE this was for sure the most exciting / scary / fun thing to do! We visited an abandoned amusement park called Spreepark Plänterwald in the city center of Berlin. It is located in Treptower Park and completely surrounded with a fence. Just make sure no one sees you and crawl through one of the holes :) There is a guard wandering around the park, so be careful. (Kiehnwerderallee 1-3) Unfortunately we didn’t have the time to visit the Teufelsberg but I heard it’s definitely worth a visit! I saw some pictures of it and they look absolutely stunning!

+++ make sure to visit one of the authentic analogue photo boots (Warschauer Straße)
