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).

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.

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.

Exploring the Friedhofsbahn: The Old Wannsee – Stahnsdorf Railway Line

Berlin has a vast transport network composed of S-Bahn and U-Bahn lines that cover almost 500 km of tracks across the city. And the town used to have even more tracks, but due to political divisions, world wars and economic problems, some of those tracks were abandoned. One of those is known as Friedhofsbahn, and it used to connect Berlin-Wannsee to Stahnsdorf.
