KREUZBERGED BERLIN

Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin

GLEISDREIECK: WHERE DREAMS COME TRUE

Most of our regular readers would probably know that next to peace on Earth, democracy and education for all, we have only one wish that falls into the same “Nice-but-Unlikely” category. Time travel.

Try as we might, clenching and unclenching various muscle groups and spending time designing complex computer systems and/or high-end time-travel-inducing appliances, it just doesn´t work.

But there is one thing which comes close to fulfilling that wish like nothing else ever could: film. For with all due love and respect for photography, there´s nothing like a moving picture to revoke that sense of being there.

Therefore, I am thrilled to announce that today you will get a unique opportunity of travelling on a pre-war Berlin Hochbahn (elevated railway) train, which will take you on a ride through Bhf Gleisdreieck, over today´s Gleisdreieckpark as well as through two no-longer existing Durchfahrthäuser (gate/tunnel houses) on the lines B, now known as U1 and A, today´s U2. The video clip comes from Robert A Stemmle´s 1936 drama, “Gleisdreieck”.

The whole film – in German – can be found on YouTube.

Enjoy it!
