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.

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.

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.

Blub Berlin: The Abandoned Water Park in Berlin-Neukölln

Blub Berlin: The Abandoned Water Park in Berlin-Neukölln

During Easter Sunday 2020, I went to Blub one more time. This would be my first visit in over five years, and I was inquisitive to see how it looked like after all the stories I heard and read online. The primary source of my curiosity was the fires the ravaged this abandoned water park in Neukölln. I don’t remember how many fires happened, but I remember one in early 2016. I’m not sure if this was the one that destroyed the roof of the building, maybe it was another one.

36 Hours in Neukölln

From time to time, I see lists that mention how cool Neukölln is, and every time I read these lists, they suggest, pretty much, the same places over and over again. Based on that, I decided to put my years of living in Neukölln as proof that I know the neighborhood well enough to come up with a guide. A simple guide, 36 hours in Neukölln, where you don’t leave the community and see everything that I believe you need to see here.
