Notmsparker, known as Beata Gontarczyk-Krampe to German Inland Revenue Office, is a Pole living in Berlin with her German husband and their three international sons. Like 52% of all Berliners today (tendency growing) she is a “newcomer”. Having moved to Berlin in 2003, since 2008 she has been writing about its quirks, its less known corners and its ever surprising history. And by the look of it, living in what must be the most fascinating, the most surprising and the most inspiring city on earth (Paris and Venice are welcome to protest), she is not going to run out of topics any time soon.
Her books, “Notmsparker’s Berlin Companion” and the 2018 “Notmsparker’s Second Berlin Companion” are now available via berlinarium.bigcartel.com, in selected Berlin shops (Volta Press, Hallesches Haus).
