Lurking behind the trees: the ruin of St.-Michael church which wasn't fully rebuilt after war damage and now invites people for a stroll along Luisenstädtischer Kanal, a former canal turned into a park.

Berlin just added a new attraction to its portfolio! The James-Simon-Galerie just opened its doors as the visitors’ center of the Museum Island. It will be the central reception area featuring a large space for ticket sales and information, checkrooms, a museum shop, a café and a restaurant, as well as an auditorium and room for special exhibitions. The building, designed by architect David Chipperfield, takes the theme of the historical colonnades from the existing buildings on Museum Island and translates them into a modern form. The sixth and last building on the island will thereby harmoniously blend in with the historical ensemble and at the same time set a modern accent on one of the largest museum complexes in the world. Why not go and have a look at it this weekend?
Four huge surreal figures cover the façade of this double high-rise building at S-Bahn station Storkower Straße. In the late 1990s, Spanish artist Gustavo took on the challenge of transforming the gray, dreary buildings into a work of art. Despite the 940 windows, he managed to design four matching figures, including a carrot with a face and a love-drunk poet, who today decorate the building and give some gray Berlin skies a little colour.
Kreuzberg is not just the name of the quirky neighborhood we all love, but also that of a 66-metre-high hill right in the middle of it. Once used to grow wine it now features a memorial in the Neo-Gothic style and a little waterfall designed after the landscape of the Riesengebirge ("Giant Mountains"). Berlin-based expat @mc_kyle took this amazing picture and shared it using #visit_berlin . Keep your #visit_berlin pictures coming! We feature our favourites every week!
#secretspots_berlin - ZK/U – Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistik | Tucked away in the north-west of the city you'll find the @zku.berlin – Center for Art and Urbanistics. What used to be a freight terminal is now housing an international artist residency program, a public hangout spot, a cultural event hub and a space for external projects like the community garden that can be found within the ZK/U. From exhibitions (OPENHAUS) to a monthly summer market (GÜTERMARKT) and screenings of independent movies combined with a matching cuisine (SPEISEKINO), the ZK/U always deals with topics around urban development, public space, art in and about public space and interventions. The team behind this project aims to bring together people and inspire them to take initiative in their neighbourhood while sparking intercultural exchange between the participants. Successfully creating a meeting and melting point for the neighborhood of Moabit and its visitors, this unique spot will surprise you in every way. Check out our story for more info on this awesome location and mark your calendars for the flea market this Sunday!
The Treptower Ehrenmal is a Soviet war memorial and military cemetary in Treptower Park that commemorates the fallen Soviet soldiers from the 1945 Battle of Berlin. The golden light of the sunset gave it an extra peaceful look when @pp_berlin snapped the image. Thank you for sharing.
