Prater Construction SIte

Prater Berlin Prenzlauer Berg

Construction work has been going on at the Prater on Kastanienallee in Prenzlauer Berg for years. And for years, it felt like things weren’t really progressing. But now the construction work seems to be coming to an end – at least that’s my impression when I occasionally take a look at the building site. I can’t say whether this corresponds to the actual situation. We will see.

Of course, this picture does not really show the beer garden / the Pratergarten, but just the entrance area of the Prater area.

Berlin in January: Siegessäule in Tiergarten

Berlin in January: Siegessäule in Tiergarten

Berlin in mid-January. The days are getting longer again, it’s getting dark later. There are still the last remnants of snow in Tiergarten and Victoria towers atop the Victory Column Siegessäule.

Election posters can be seen on the lampposts – in Berlin, the Bundestag election will be repeated in many constituencies on February 11 due to various technical problems during the 2021 election.
