Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin


Amphicar, or amphibious vehicle, produced in Berlin-Wittenau by Deutschen Waggon- und Maschinenfabrik (formely known as Deutsche Waffen- und Munitionsfabriken AG and before that as Ludwig Loewe & Co.) on the Großer Wannsee lake in Berlin.

Right in time for my birthday – your truly has just reached a respectable age of 250% eighteen – the Facebook edition of this blog has officially broken the 5,000-followers mark and that the number of readers on the WordPress platform keeps steadily growing as well! I am extremely proud and very grateful for Your, Dear Readers, attention as well as Your unrelenting interest in all things Berlin.

It makes me very happy to see that the historical titbits and often forgotten facts and stories which I am so passionate about are also of interest to other people: those who, like myself, are glad to learn everything they never even knew they wanted to know about Berlin:-)

Right now the author of this blog will be taking a well-deserved summer break – after all Kreuzberged and Berlin Companion are both one-woman shows –  to spend time with the family, read even more books about Berlin and prepare the launch of her own new e-books: both “Notmsparker´s Berlin Companion”, originally published in 2016, and the brand new “Kreuzberged – Berlin Companion”, another collection of fascinating facts and stories from Berlin´s past and present, will be launched in July and August 2017 respectively.

And in the meantime I wish all of you a great summer/winter depending on which hemisphere you happen to be on while reading these words and am looking forward to sharing more Berlin stories with you soon.

Bis bald!
