KREUZBERGED: BERLIN COMPANION

Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin

SPOTTED IN PASSING: THE GATE

image

A passage connecting two historical  cemeteries in Bergmannstraße in Kreuzberg was created by tearing down a section of an old family tomb.

The cemeteries in Bergmannstraße are among the most beautiful burial grounds in Berlin and are the last resting place of many prominent Berliners, with Gustav Stresemann (German Chancellor, Secretary for Foreign Affairs in the days of the Weimar Republic week as Peace Nobel Price winner in 1926), theologist and philosopher Friedrich Daniel Schleiermacher and his intellectual sparring-partner and now also eternal neighbour, theologist Philipp Konrad Marheineke) among others.

      There is an utterly wonderful little cafe there: Cafe Strauss, I believe. The most relaxed place in Kreuzberg, if you ask me;-)
