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

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).

With tellers (or in English: main dish) starting of just 4,50€, this Arabic place in Sonneallee is a must. Falafel, Makali, Kibbeh, hummus and more are waiting for you with free wifi and great staff.

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.

If you’ve watched the Netflix series Dark, you know that one of the key locations in this crazy series is the Winden Cave. There you can find the passage to travel through time that links 1953, 1986, and 2019. But, since we saw it on TV for the first time, we wondered where we could find the cave in Dark.

My first time visiting a three country border was when I visited Aachen, the westernmost city in Germany. It took me a few hours on a train to get there but I didn’t care, I wanted to go there to see the city and to see where Germany, Netherlands and Belgium meet, just to be able to run from one country to the other.
