Our own list of the best Berlin books everybody needs to have as a way to see and understand the city a little better. We bought these books over the years we have been here, and we promise you they are worth every penny.
Fotostrasse’s Guide To Brutalism In Berlin is a simple and easy way to explore the beauty of concrete in the German capital. From the weird shaped Bierpinsel in Steglitz to the battleship style construction of the Mäusebunker in Lichterfelde, Berlin has some of the best examples of Brutalism architecture in Europe; here guide you through some of the places.
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.
For another week of the #52weeksofburgers challenge, Fotostrasse visits the fancy Kumpel & Keule Speisewirtschaft in Kreuzberg. We visited the Kumpel & Keule stand in Markethalle Neun in September and since then we have been curious about their proper restaurant near Gorlitzer Park. Since this was the week of my birthday and I wanted a nice place to eat, we decided to pamper ourselves and try this place out.
This week Fotostrasse explores Kreuzberg for the #52weeksofburgers challenge and have some fun in Kreuzburger. Nestled in the middle of concert venues and bars, Kreuzburger is quite a popular place to have a post-drinking snack in Oranienstrasse.
In Berlin Moves, Alex Soloviev tries to capture the German capital from the eyes of a local. At the same time, he tries to show how beautiful the city is from the perspective of a tourist. He wants to show you all the small things that you overlook while you walk around Berlin, and this is one of the many reasons why we had to write something about his latest video.
