Looking down Karl-Marx-Allee towards the Straussberger Platz with the TV-Tower in the background on a cold but sunny day in February. The Karl-Marx-Allee is an iconic socialist boulevard built between 1952 and 1960. Originally the street was called Große Frankfurter Straße. From 1949 until 1961 it was then renamed to Stalinallee, before it was finally […]
Walking down towards Karl-Marx-Allee, coming from Alexanderplatz, you may have seen the huge piece of streetart written on the building of the former Haus der Statistik (House of Statistics) at the corner of Otto-Braun-Strasse: “STOP WARS”.

Another photo of the church Zionskirche in Berlin Mitte near Prenzlauer Berg / Kastanienallee.

Spring […]
The Berlin TV Tower on an almost sunny day – in the foreground a typical East Berlin street lamp and a pair of sneakers hanging from a wire that holds the power cables of the Tram line 12 near Zionskirchplatz.
