Берлин

Берлин: космополитният град, който може да се почувства.

Какво отличава Берлин от други космополитни градове? На първо място това са самите берлинчани, техният остър, но сърдечен чар, който разстила типичната берлинска атмосфера. И, разбира се, невероятното богатство от забележителности, в които се отразяват както позитивизмът и духът на времето, така и голямата история и драмите на 20-ти век.

Когато се спомене Берлин, човек първо се сеща за Бранденбургската врата – със сигурност най-известната архитектурна постройка в столицата. В продължение на десетилетия символ на разделението, но в същото време център на оживения, богат на идеи и вдъхновение, изпълнен с изкуство, култура и креативност метрополис. Курфюрстендам, олицетворение на елегантния градски булевард, търговският център Kaufhaus des Westens (в превод: Търговски център на Запада), по-известен като KaDeWe, модни бутици и шикозни галерии определят облика на Западен Берлин, също както прекрасните  жилищни квартали и, разбира се, прочутият берлински нощен живот. Към него несъмнено спада и една вечер, прекарана във Фридрихщат-Паласт, най-голямата вариететна сцена в Германия, която със своя спектакъл SHOW ME (Покажи ми) представя вероятно най-скъпото и най-блестящо сценично шоу на всички времена: истински блясък, експлозия от светлина, цветове, костюми и ефекти. Атмосферата на космополитния град е озарена без съмнение и от правителствената зона, която се намира на изток от Бранденбургската врата и близкия Райхстаг. Мирът и свободата тук са на особена почит – за разлика от времето, когато от Берлин са били извършвани ужасни престъпления. Мемориалът на убитите в Европа евреи по проект на нюйоркския архитект Питър Айзенман, разположен непосредствено до Бранденбургската врата, напомня за това, както и експозицията „Топография на терора“, намираща се на терена, на който някога е била щабквартирата на Тайната държавна полиция (Гестапо).

На изток в посока към площада Александерплац се простира парадният булевард на Берлин Унтер ден Линден, минаващ покрай вписания в Списъка на световното културно наследство Остров на музеите (Museumsinsel), Берлинската катедрала, Нойе Вахе (Нов караул) и бароковия Цойгхауз (Арсенал) – днес Германски исторически музей. По-нататък се стига до телевизионната кула, най-високата сграда в Германия и до днес. Насладата от гледката над цял Берлин и далеч към Бранденбург представлява – в буквален смисъл – върхова точка на всяко посещение на Берлин. На един хвърлей разстояние се простира Жандарменмаркт, всеобщо славен като най-красивия берлински площад, който със своите Германска катедрала, Френска катедрала и Концертна зала представлява ансамбъл с особено достолепие и величие. По-малко възвишена, но затова пък изключително свободна, лека и изкусителна е атмосферата в Хакеше Хьофе, също в центъра на Берлин - най-големият комплекс вътрешни дворове в Германия, който от 1977 г. е поставен под защитата на паметниците на културата. Тук може да се усети автентичният Стар Берлин, пъстра смесица от художествени галерии, кина, театри и вариетета, кръчмички, ресторанти и барове, симпатични малки магазинчета и представителни магазини на големите концерни. На това място осезаемо се долавя и творческата атмосфера на Берлин, която днес, вече четвърт век след падането на стената, е може би още по-характерна тук, отколкото в други метрополии. Ателието на Германия, градът на експериментите в изкуството, на модата, дизайна, музиката: духът на развитие и напредък в отново обединения град е бил несравним – така е и до днес. Стотици ателиета в задните дворове се събуждат за нов живот, изкуството завзема улиците, фасадите, цялото градско пространство. И, разбира се, останките от Берлинската стена, които под името „East Side Galery“ между Обербаумбрюке и Остбанхоф, са се превърнали в нещо като илюстрована енциклопедия на уличното изкуство. Днес кварталите Кройцберг и Пренцлауер Берг, Нойкьолн и Вединг са предпочитани адреси за над 20 000 художници, които допринасят за атмосферата и обстановката, превръщат града в център за изкуство както за алтернативни, така и за утвърдени имена. Потопете се спокойно в този свят, оставете се да ви вдъхнови, завладее и одухотвори. И опознайте хората на Берлин - заедно с всички забележителности, те са може би най-основателната причина да посетите този великолепен град. И да се връщате отново и отново.

What travellers from around the world are saying

Shopping in the city

I am continuing my little Berlin report. We planned to go shopping and sightseeing at the weekend with Nóri. Unfortunately, shops in Germany are closed on Sundays so we had to do the shopping part on Saturday... We were walking in the streets in the city centre in the morning and we went into interesting design stores when we spotted them. I like talking to the locals because a lot of nice memories come back in connection with Germany. I was 11 years old when I first spent a longer period of time in summer at a German family. It is funny to think back that I could hardly understand anything from what they were trying to tell me, I was so embarrassed that I answered "Ja" to everything... :) We left the shopping centres to the afternoon where we could really enjoy our shopping mania. We found a Primark shop here, too, well known from London... :) If you ever enter this shop, you will surely leave with more than one shopping bag. :) The sales were still on which meant that we bought almost everything for 3 or 5 Euros. It was the earthly heaven itself, I could hardly stop myself from putting the whole store into my basket. By the end of the day, we got totally exhausted and couldn't wait to relax after these two long days... X x Festy

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin - Studio Kaprol fashion show and backstage

I couldn't wait for the second fashion show on Friday because the marketing person of Studio Kaprol contacted me a few weeks ago to ask us to take some photos of their backstage and post them on our blogs. It was a great experience for me to get a glimpse again behind the scenes of an international fashion week. It had only happened to me once on my first fashion week in New York. Then, the series of pleasures continued as we got private VIP seats to the second row among journalists and celebrities from Berlin. I was extremely happy to be able to watch this special show from such proximity. It started with an art movie and then the models walked on the runway in an unusual way, wandering around and staying on the stage. There were more and more of them up there, then they got together and finally brought the designer forward. I found it a really good idea to present these loose street wear clothes in such a creative way. X x Festy

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin - Marina Hoermanseder fashion show

I thought that Friday is also worth mentioning and I should make a post about the fashion shows, too. We received standing tickets for Marina Hoermanseder's show so we could see the happenings from upstairs with Nóri. It was ideal to take photos from there because we could see the whole area. I love the feeling when the atmosphere of the fashion week catches me and I watch the creations of different designers with excitement. Marina Hoermanseder, Austrian designer, created an extravagant collection with the patterns of medical aids in the clothes. It was interesting to see a kind of knee machine on a fashion show that I had to wear after my sport accident... xo, Festy

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin

So many things have happened during a day, it seems that we have been here in Berlin for a week already. We left Budapest in the morning with Nóri Oravecz and we landed in Germany at noon. Our accommodation is in the city centre so we can easily reach everything within 15 minutes. I was really excited because I had never been to Berlin Fashion Week before so I couldn't wait to sit on the shows and learn about German fashion. We were invited to two fashion shows yesterday. At first, we checked the creations of a talented Austrian designer, Marina Hoermanseder. Then, we had the opportunity to look at the backstage of Studio Kaprol, it was the first time I had received a VIP ticket on an international fashion event. We could watch the fashion show from the second row which is a fantastic feeling for a fashion blogger. :) We got an invitation to the closing party at night where we got to know German and Austrian journalists and designers. It was adventurous to get to the party... It took almost an hour to find one of the old factory sites of East-Berlin. The place had a special atmosphere with a ruined brick building, wall paintings and railways tracks. Finally, we found a huge building like a hangar where masked hostesses were welcoming the guests at the end of the red carpet. We entered a large room where the closing ceremony took place. We talked to a lot of fashion professionals, everybody was friendly and kind to us. One of the great advantages of Berlin is that the underground operates all night so you can get home very easily even after midnight. X x Festy

West-Berlin

West-Berlin is the best!

During our last day at Berlin we had a little sightseeing around the city with a hopp on hopp of bus. It was great to see all the statues and monuments all over the city, and the squares and of course Potsdamers Platz again. After that tour we shortly started to recognize the places what we have been visited so far, and the distance between them. For us our tour was ended at West-Berlin, where we checked the place where we had party on Friday night, we made some photos in front of the graffiti walls, and finally found our best restaurant experience ever! Sunday Brunch for 1O euros, in a restaurant called Via Nova, with an extremely nice stuff and food of course! If you have time to go there, visit them, you're gonna love it! Berlin, we love you, and it was so good to spend 3 days there! :) See you soon again. Nora

E4 Berlin

shopping at Berlin

After our exciting Friday on Saturday we had a little shopping tour around Berlin. We've started our tour in the street, where you can find Boconcept, and after we visited the high category brands as well, where we met with the personal shopper of Sarah Connor. The last station of our shopping tour was Primark, where we bought a bunch of new stuff for us, where we were very excited about the sale. You need to try Primark, than it's a good thing to visit Potsdamer Platz and drink a coffee in Carac Gourmet, you won't forget that view! If you still want to go and have a big walk, just visit the Sony center, where you can have dinner, and you can see on the screen all of the famous celebrities, who has been visited the city so far. Just check Berlin. It can't be a mistake.

Oravecz Nóra

We've just got the invitation some weeks ago for BFW, we were so excited! I have really good memories from my latest visit, and I was hoping that someday I can come back. And now I brought with me my fashion blogger friend, Festy as well. Yesterday we saw 2 fashion shows, the last one was my favourite one! It was so energetic and cool, nobody could take his eyes off from them! :) During the night we had a great party, because we were invited to the closing party of the BFW. We got know one of the journalists of Bild.de magazine, he was very nice, we had a short chat with him. Today we were shopping for hours, tomorrow I am going to tell more about that - what we visited ,where we had the shopping tour, etc. :) Tomorrow we are going to have our Big Bus Tour, so I can come back with great photos about the city! Stay Tuned! Nora

EXKLUSIVT: Först på Escapewebben??

FÖRST PÅ ESCAPEWEBBEN ATT SPOILA VINNAREN AV UPPDRAG TYSKLAND??!! Det blev inte Stiga tyvärr. Team Hamburg kammade hem Berlinresan denna gång, vi antar att det var rättvist att låta någon annan också ta del av hipsterhufvudstaden. Vi kommer definitivt återvända i vilket fall. Här är lite mer eller mindra bra/roliga/olagliga/äckliga bilder på Stiga med entourage på Under Bron i lördags. Vi tog med oss Sagas oäkta (men väldigt underbara) man Filip och lika delar underbara extended family+vän Nadja. Vi blev bjudna på snittar/småmat (som vi tyvärr inte ens orkade smaka på pga kom direkt från stor familjemiddag) och den Berlintypiska drycken Club Mate blandat en viss mer rysktypisk dryck. Peggy påminde oss om att det är väldigt mycket koffein i Club Mate, något som Stina undermedvetet hade förträngt. Stina har nämligen en kaffefri vecka nu (=konstant huvudvärk pga brukar dricka 6 koppar per dag annars), det var ju lite fusk med koffeindrink! Men efter Saga erbjudit sig att ta över ansvaret att drinken blev uppdrucken (av omtänksamhet såklart) så tyckte Stina att hon SKITER I’T och tog en till sen. Heheh. På scen. Halvt bländade halvt i mörker. Sen hände något med Stinas kamera. KAPAD! VAA? Allt eftersom kvällen rullade på blev det mer abstrakt. DJ Koze som VisitBerlin bokat och tagit till lilla Stockholm från Berlin började spela kl2 (då var vi redan egentligen helt slut). Saga undrade hur hon skulle komma upp till jobbet som började kl8 nästa(samma?) morgon. Stina undrade om hennes fötter över huvudtaget skulle överleva natten (valet av högklackat som alltid känns bra hemma framför spegeln, alltid lika dåligt redan ca 100m hemifrån). Men dansa bör man annars dör man(?!). Så vi dansade lite och indeed kändes det i korta ögonblick som om vi vore tillbaka i Berlin. Den ständigt pågående musiken som aldrig riktigt når klimax, utan bygger upp och upp och upp i ett ständigt pågående umf. UMFUMF PUSS OCH KRAM SYNS PÅ STAN TACK OCH HEJ LEVERPASTEJ
