In Berlin litter bins have something to say!

The city’s waste management utility, BSR aims at becoming the most modern in Europe. So now the litter bins are talking to us in a very polite way:)

The Book Forest / Free books on the street in Berlin

Exchange a good read with the world in Berlin!

Should you take a stroll in Prenzlauer Berg district in Berlin (and you definitely should!), look for the “Book Forest” at the junction Kolwitzstraße / Sredzkistraße. It’s a public bookcase made of fallen tree trunks, where you can always find a good read for your next coffee break. It’s for free.

BAUFACHFRAU came up with this project in 2006. It was intended as a temporary idea to make free books available to the public, but people simply loved it so much, that you can still find it nowadays. Of course you can also place a book there yourself and even track its journey on Bookcrossing.

Who knows which continent your newly found book is coming from:-)

Best street musician in Berlin

Every weekend at Mauerpark near the flea market, otherwise on the streets of Kreuzberg district or… who knows…The city is his stage.

His name is Frederik Konradsen and he’s considered to be the best street musician Berlin has to offer. He was born in Madagascar, grew up in Copenhagen and has been living in Berlin for a couple of years. Now you see where his coolness comes from:)
