Smiley Sticker: Street Art by Mein Lieber Prost (often shortened to Prost) in Berlin

Mein Lieber Prost

I have seen the smiley faces and people of Berlin-based Street Artist, Mein Lieber Prost (often shortened to Prost) on the streets of Berlin since I first visited the city in 2009.  His simple but effective drawings and occasional advertising takeover antics always bring to mind the phrase ‘Smile and the world smiles with you…’.

Museum für Naturkunde (Natural History Museum)

Yesterday afternoon, with Berlin’s weather teetering on the edge of the depressive part of its bi-polar summer weather cycle, I went to the Museum für Naturkunde (Natural History Museum). I have been conscious for a while now of neglecting Berlin’s museums. I’ve posted about the Deutches Historisches Museum and The Stasi Museum, both of which I […]

Biergärten in the Tiergarten

  As well as being an oasis of calm in the heart of Berlin and a great place to lay in the grass and catch some sun, the Tiergarten is home to two of my favourite outdoor drinking spots in Berlin. Walking around such a huge park can be very thirsty work and the Biergärten […]

The Tiergarten

Berlin’s largest park, the Tiergarten, seemed like the perfect place to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon.  So yesterday, with Berlin enjoying some much needed sunshine, that’s exactly where I went. And I wasn’t the only one. Some people chose a spot on the banks of the canal and were absorbed in a book, others lay […]

Stolpersteine 114

I have added this photo of a pair of Stolpersteine that I saw in Berlin in the last week to my photo gallery here. These stumble stones were laid in memory of Arthur Wiener and Pauline Wiener (Herrfurthstrasse 5). My first post about Stolpersteine explains the background to these memorials to the victims of National Socialism created […]

Ziervogel’s Kult-Curry

When I heard that a new Currywurst Imbiss, Ziervogel’s Kult-Curry, had opened on Schönhauser Allee in Berlin’s Prenzlauer Berg I had to go along and try it out. As a currywurst fan I would have gone anyway but the sensationalist headlines in the papers about the ‘family feud’ that led to its opening certainly added […]

CLET – Street (Sign) Art

I posted photos of a couple of the CLET street sign interventions I have seen in Berlin recently on my Facebook page and they were well received so I thought I’d write a post about the artist. CLET (Clet Abraham) is based in Florence but comes originally from Brittany.  He is most well known for […]
