On the 1st of May i took the opportunity to take a walk on Kreuzberg’s Oranienstrasse, strolling the MyFest. Lots of people, some live music on the various stages, typical Kreuzberg food, drinks, sunshine. What more do you want? And since the U-Bahn was completely overloaded I also took the opportunity to walk most of my way back home. Which was nice.

U-Bahn / Streetart: ‘EASY’ at Schönhauser Allee

U-Bahn Streetart Easy Schoenhauser Allee

This piece of art was probably not as easy to acomplish, as it might first look. Large parts of the roof of this apartment building in Schönhauser Allee / Prenzlauer Berg are painted – and I have no idea, how it was done. Are people really climbing theses roofs to paint them? Or is the color applied from above with some kind of a super brush? Well well well… Respect!

After quite many cloudy days with rain and wind we finally had some sunny days – and of course I took the opportunity to take some photos. Here is one taken in Fehrbelliner Strasse near Weinbergspark. The sunlight is plaing with the old street lamp and in the distance the TV-Tower is beautiful as always.

Walking the streets of Berlin you may have noticed Cherry trees here and there. Especially during spring time, when the cherry trees begin to blossom, one may be left puzzled why there are so many cherry trees, and why they seem to be planted in rather distinct places. The answer is quite simple: most of the trees are a present from Japan. So they are actually original Japanese Cherry trees.

Taking a walk on Tempelhofer Feld

In the Summer taking a walk on Tempelhofer Feld is not really my thing. You can’t really hide from the sun – and at least for my taste there is just a bit too much going on. And that is a good thing – but I prefer my walks to be a bit more relaxed. While I do enjoy the walking, Tempelhofer Feld is probably more fun to experience when you have some wheels between you and planet earth – at least on the runways.

Anyways – last weekend we finally took a walk on Tempelhofer Feld – and it was really great. We had some sun to warm us walking the open field – and we saw some of the folks on wheels. And the Berliner Weisse tasted already a bit like Berlin Summer. Yay!
