KREUZBERGED: BERLIN COMPANION

Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin

A MOMENT OF KREUZBERG: BERLIN OLYMPICS PROPAGANDA FILM

Some time ago I happened to be watching this film online, taking in every image that was played before me. Back then, however, I could hardly recognize Friedrichstrasse – it took a while before I learnt enough to name the places I was looking at.

One of the greatest things about getting to know the place where you live is suddenly seeing it where you did not used to see it before.

Enjoy the film – especially the 5 min 51 s:) It is unforgettable.

    I agree that it is great to watch the film and pick out familiar streets/landmarks. I would enjoy it even more if my Deutsch was better. Did I miss something though? I wasn’t sure what I was meant to be looking at 5mins 51s in.

      I am sorry!:) Sometimes I get truly overenthusiastic and forget to include information which I presume everybody knows anyway. I included it in the tags only: it is the Heiliger-Kreuz-Kirche in Blücherstrasse seen in the background as U1 passes Landwehrkanal along Hallescher Ufer on the left and Planufer and Waterloo Ufer on the right. The right side of the canal has changed beyond recognition since then so it is a true gem.
