Nightfall // Berlin

Rathaus Schöneberg - Berlin

Rathaus Schöneberg – Berlin

Puh, I just returned from an extremely exhausting and great trip to Berlin and I am still recovering. It is certainly not the most beautiful city (which it doesn’t claim to be) or the best city for sightseeing (No: the whole “Wall-Nostalgia” is not a sight!). But I definitely consider it one of the most interesting cities in Europe. Certainly, problems are there if you scratch below the surface or live in the city as I did for some time. Especially the city center is becoming less and less interesting with its fancy-posh-glass-whatever-business-buildings. Other districts are as rough and charming as ever. The photograph shows the back of the Rathaus Schöneberg, where JFK gave his famous “Ick bin ein Berliner”-speech long time ago. Since then, the city has changed dramatically, becoming the biggest construction site of Europe…well…besides Berlin’s new airport which was supposed to open in 2012 and will, eventually, open in 2017…not quite German my dear Germans.

I came here with two friends to see the wonderful Rainald Grebe, a german comedian who is doing his shows with a mix of orchestra, songs and a lot of great intelligent cabaret (see a collection here if you are able to understand German). And I support him when he sings “Berlin, Hallelujah Berlin” in his song “Brandenburg“.

This photograph is dedicated to a bunch of great people: Manfred, Michael, Stefan…Aaaaaand to “5/8erl in Ehr’n“, a fantastic Vienna-based soul band of a friend, which I found myself listening to by surprise during “Fete de la Musique” in the “Österreich-Park” in Charlottenburg. Globalization…sometimes not bad at all…Tata!
