    Day 9🇩🇪

    July 29 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 26 °C

    Woke up in Fürth, a small village near Nürnberg, Germany. We went into town early to get breakfast and walk around before our train for Berlin. Stopped at a local bakery and got a few pastries and a coffee from the nearby Starbucks. I felt quite tired so I was a bit grumpy that morning (sorry Lampros!).
    Today is a big day of travelling, since our final destination will be Copenhagen, Denmark. It’s a big trip with 5 different trains to catch. There are direct trains to Copenhagen from Hamburg but they’re all booked and we can’t get any seats. So it’ll have to be that way! We are prepared!
    Getting to Berlin we had just a couple of hours, so we walked out of the station, went to gate of Brandenburg, saw the parliament “Reichstag” building and the Jew monument. Then walked back to the station, had a delicious Chinese “make yourself” bowl, and ran to our next train. Next destination Hamburg.
    Getting to Hamburg we had an hour to spend, so we again walked out, went about a bit and then back to the station. From Hamburg, we had to go Flensburg. In the beginning we got the wagons mixed up a bit, so we had to run to the right one and I got a bad cramp - but we eventually got there and found seats next to each other. The time was passing and we were getting tired..
    Getting to Flensburg we had to wait for two hours before the next train. When that train arrived there were only two wagons but a lot more people then they could fit. The train journey was 1h 30m, and more than half the people on the train were standing cause they weren’t any seats. On top of that, because we were crossing boarders they had to check our passports so they made all the people that were standing to get off the train and then board it again. Getting to Fredericia we - again - had about an hour to spare and we were getting hungry, but there was nothing around to eat - plus it was super early in the morning so there was also nothing open. We shared a couple of cereal bars and waited for the next train. It started getting cold so I changed from shorts to trousers. At last, our last train arrived, we boarded quickly and tried to sleep. Last destination - Copenhagen!
    We arrived in Copenhagen early hours of the morning, found the bus to the zoo and called Stamos to open up for us! It felt so nice to be here. ❤️ home away from home. Having a shower, getting to bed and waking up to lots of washing!!!!😂👖👚👕🧼🛁🧺

    Galleria dorata

    March 20 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 10 °C

    Il nome non esagera: la Galleria Dorata è una sala da ballo lussureggiante con decorazioni d'oro, una delle più belle sale rococò in tutta Europa. Le pareti e i soffitti color pastello sono decorati con ornamenti d'oro e allegri cherubini. Colpiscono nella Sala Bianca i soggetti mitologici sul soffitto dipinti con colori tenui da Antoine Pesne.Read more

    Ala nuova

    March 20 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 9 °C

    Dopo la sua ascesa al trono nel 1740, Federico il Grande commissionò la costruzione dell' Ala Nuova , per ampliare l'originario vecchio Castello di Charlottenburg. Furono realizzate due grandi sale da ballo e due appartamenti separati con una delle più grandi collezioni di pittura francese del 18° secolo al di fuori del territorio francese. In seguito il nipote e successore di Federico il Grande, re Federico Guglielmo II, fece allestire nell'Ala Nuova un appartamento estivo in stile cinese, allora moderno, nonché un appartamento invernale.Read more

    Charlottenburg

    March 20 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 9 °C

    Charlottenburg è un quartiere di Berlino dove nel 1695 Sofia Carlotta, moglie del principe Federico III di Brandeburgo, poi eletto come Federico I re di Prussia, fece costruire la sua residenza estiva col nome di Luetzenburg. Alla morte di Sofia Carlotta nel 1705 il castello prese il nome di Charlottenburg.
    Federico I intendeva destinare il castello di Charlottenburg a residenza reale suburbana, seguendo il modello proposto dal Re Sole a Versailles e ripreso da molti sovrani d'Europa; tuttavia questo ruolo passò già con il regno di Federico II il Grande al castello di Sanssouci a Potsdam. Charlottenburg divenne comunque una meta apprezzata per le gite fuori porta dei cittadini berlinesi.
    Durante la seconda guerra mondiale il palazzo è stato gravemente danneggiato dai bombardamenti, ma per fortuna è poi stato restaurato.

    Day 269: Berlin Modernist Housing Estate

    November 10, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 5 °C

    Greeted this morning by another cold, overcast day. I think that's just the way it is in this city - apparently November gets about 30 hours of sunshine per month! Today's plan was to visit the Berlin Modernist Housing Estates - a modern architecture WH site scattered around the outskirts of the city. In the process of rebuilding and stimulating the economy after WW1, many many apartment buildings were constructed - often with fancy and cutting edge modernist architecture.

    First stop was actually only about 10 minutes walk away, so we headed over to check it out. The buildings are low-rise, mostly white-washed, but with splashes of colour on the window frames, railings, doors etc. Reminded us quite a bit of the Rietveld-Schroder House we'd visited in Utrecht a few months prior. Looked around and filmed, then hopped on a train to the west of the city and visited two more housing complexes.

    Similar designs, though different in minor ways. I will confess, sites like these are when you realise it's a list of important heritage, not particularly a tourist list. To the untrained eye you could easily walk past these buildings a hundred times and not notice anything special about them - and I include myself in that! I guess they had an impact across the world on public housing design, since German architecture was on the rise at the time in the late 20s and early 30s.

    It's interesting to note as well that public housing is very common here. Home ownership just isn't particularly a thing, and neither is the whole "let's get rich in the property market" either. Most people just rent for their entire lives, and of course the government provides very strong protections for renters as well. Unlike the hyper-capitalist "if you don't like it, just buy your own house" attitude in Australia and the US. I don't really know why it's different - just that little bit more socialist I guess.

    Finished up our filming and had a look around the Wedding district since that's where we were. I'd read a few things suggesting it was the hipster central of Berlin, but really it just seemed poor and down-and-out. Later conversations with locals clarified that every few years people convince themselves that Wedding is going to be the hot new thing, but it's never really panned out that way. Strange.

    So we grabbed some lunch in a shopping mall (Shandos had sushi and I had Subway), then we headed home to have an afternoon off. It'd been a long day yesterday, so figured we'd chill out and have a half-day today. Got a couple of videos done which was nice.

    In the evening we headed out near our apartment - went to a really highly rated dumpling restaurant with fancy gourmet vegetarian dumplings, then followed it up with a drink at a cocktail bar. I lashed out and paid 6 euros for a gin & tonic - definitely not in central Europe any more!

    Reisdag naar Berlijn

    July 23, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Vandaag vertrokken richting Berlijn, heerlijk op ons gemakje. Vertrokken zo rond half 10 en waren net iets voor 4-en in ons hotel. Na een snelle check-in, snel richting het centrum om een vleugje van Berlijn op te snuiven. En hoe ben je sneller in het centrum dan met de metro! Via de alexanderplatz richting hackescher markt gelopen waar we bij een bierbrouwerij heerlijk hebben gegeten. Via een zomerse kerstmarkt en wederom de metro nu lekker in ons hotel. De kids in een stapelbed en wij 2 eenpersoons bedden. We gaan hopelijk vroeg slapen, want morgen is het om 6 uur op, om 7 uur ontbijten en 7:15 de taxi richting vliegveld. Ik heb er zin in!Read more
