One of the last episode highlights is when Beth takes a stroll around the Moscow streets and meets with some people playing chess. At the Moscow hotel, this scene was shot on Karl-Marx-Allee, and we managed to go there and find the exact same spot where the series was filmed.

The Queen's Gambit in Berlin

Like everyone else that watches Netflix way too much, we have been following the hype around the Queen’s Gambit. But it wasn’t just about the exciting plot and Anya Taylor-Joy as Beth Harmon. It was personal because we knew that most of the scenes in the Queen’s Gambit were filmed in Berlin.

David Bowie's Berlin - a tour of Bowie's Berlin years

I’ll be presenting you David Bowie’s Berlin. His house, his studio, his favorite bars and some super useful information you’ll find in this guide. All with addresses, maps, and photos. In the 3 years David Bowie lived in Berlin in the 70s recording the “Berlin Trilogy”, he left his mark on the city. When I say “Berlin Trilogy” I’m referring to Low (1977), Heroes (1977), and Lodger (1979).

My first time visiting a three country border was when I visited Aachen, the westernmost city in Germany.

Dark Locations around Berlin

The story in Dark begins with a teenager gone missing and a series of unexplained events that overwhelm four families in the town of Winden. Tall trees, subterranean caves that are not what they seem, a dark forest that could be the source of all the mystery and a small town community where everybody knows each other for as long as they have been living there. This is the setting of Dark, and we loved it so much that we need to know where was it filmed.
