Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin


Spotted during an impromptu walk through Moabit and Tiergarten: Die Goldelse (Siegessäule) above Berlin.

    Interesting picture! Could you publish some more pictures about the “Siegesäule mit der Goldelse”?

      I’m sorry, Uta. I only took this one that day. I was too drunken on light in Berlin that day:-)

    No worries, B, I really like this picture that you took with the Siegesäule in the background. Berliners on the go. Maybe on the way to work?
    I am sure you are capable to take another picture that shows the Goldelse in its full glory. Maybe you should wait for a day when the sun shines on her! Then everyone knows why she is called “Goldelse’. Berliners would know even on a bleak day what Goldelse is like. And it is great that we can see her in the picture you took on this bleak day. Was it in the morning?

      Early afternoon:) I’d just brought my boys to Hauptbahnhof where tgeir Oma was waiting to take them on a little holiday with her. A beautiful day nevertheless.

    We always loved to have a walk through the Tiergarten when we were staying in Berlin. And after a while we were quite familiar with Hauptbahnhof too. Peter also did some running in Tiergarten. Usually early in the morning. Even when the temperature was a bit low, it did not feel very cold. Here in the Illawarra of NSW, Austalia, Peter usually does not want to run early in the morning. The temperature and the air just does not feel right to him.
    I am sure your boys loved their little holiday with their Oma.

      Jogging is something I have never been able to warm up to but I deeply admire people who do it, especially people like Peter. And I imagine that if I were to go running then there would be only possible itineraries for me: along Landwehrkanal or in Tiergarten. Or both:-)
