On the outskirts of Berlin, where Neukölln and Schönefeld meet, there is a hill with one of the city’s best views. Called the Skypoint in Schönefeld, this manufactured structure is built over trash, and we took our drone there in June 2021 to capture its beauty.
The Britzer Muhle is one of the eight remaining windmills in Berlin, and it is the only surviving windmill that used to exist in Britz-Neukölln. Also, it’s the only remaining fully functional windmill in Berlin, and these are some of the many reasons why you need to visit this place.
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.
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.
