Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin


There is no doubt about the fact that high summer finally reached Berlin: it is 28 degrees outside, confused tourists and angry drivers are trying to find their way around multiple construction sites located in every second street and school kids are leaving the city in throngs.

It is time we took a little summer break as well – to recharge the batteries and read plenty of fascinating books to have plenty of fascinating things to write about again soon. Considering the number of books we put aside for this occasion, we would need something around 37 years to complete the task but will, of course, curb our enthusiasm and just read faster.

We wish you a great time wherever you are and whatever the season of the year outside your windows and hope to see you return next month for even more things you did not know about Berlin but didn´t know whom to ask:-)

amphicar on the water berlin

A Berlin Amphicar, built by Hans Trippel and produced in Berlin-Wittenau, on one of numerous Berlin´s waterways. In 1962 two Amphicars were used by two Brits to cross the English Channel between Dover and Calais. It took them less than 7.5 h to reached the other side of the channel.

      Thank you – but it seems we are heading for an area with raging forest fires… There doesn´t seem to be any sense of balance in nature:) May some of the heat – in moderate, pleasant amounts, of course – reach Scotland, too.
