KREUZBERGED: BERLIN COMPANION

Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin

GET ON THE SLOW TRAIN

Let us take a pause from the fast-paced day and enjoy another wonderful film about the old Berlin.

This time, courtesy of the Stadtmuseum Berlin, we have a unique chance of taking a ride with the 1947 S-Bahn. Thanks to a series of excellent photographs taken by Harry Croner, we can see what WWII did to the area along the line between Alexanderplatz and Bahnhof Zoo. A feast to the eye yet again!

    Listen to the sound of the S-Bahn. There was no other sound like it in the Universe.

      You know, there is still something magical about the S-Bahn trains. They do not sound the same – how could they – but I am always excited to see and hear one pass me by when I´m cycling through Berlin.

        They offer the people the chance to escape the city and enjoy the outdoors. The Berliners always dream of taking the S-Bahn to JWD. During the time of the “Wall” this was not possible. Take the train to Bernau or Zeuthen. Two aspects of another world awaits you.

          I usually travel to Bernau and to Königs Wusterhausen, meaning north-east and south-west:) The differences are getting less visible with time – less than only 10 years ago.
