This place is in the Jewish quarter of Berlin. Just outside the entrance also can enter (I forget the name) that have patios shops in every yard, between the blocks. There is an exhibition on mechanical machines like metal bird that move, the entry is 8 € but if you are a group of people, the price will drop to 5 €. You can also enter a building that has a couple of shops, and whose stairs are full of graffiti.
If you fancy being surrounded by Communism, this is your tour. During one of my stays in Berlin we ran, it was an extrasensory experience, with their wide streets, their huge roundabouts and with the flavor of some of the bars, theaters and libraries. By the way, if you like the film The Lives of Others, you'll find many of its locations here. Also for dwellings Wedekindstrasse Street is very close to this avenue.
As our visit to Berlin was in February, we found Unter Den Linden covered in snow. We read many references on the boulevard and, despite the weather, we enjoyed its charm and beauty. Absolutely recommended!
Augustrasse Street is in the Mitte district of Berlin extends from the street to Oranienburgerstrasse Rosenthalerstrasse. It's a charming street, as it is full of curious local, modern buildings which blend well with other ancient, some restored and some not, full of contrasts. In addition, there are many modern art galleries not only on this street, but also in nearby streets, as Linenstrasse and Trostrasse which make Berlin the largest contemporary art center of Germany. Take a stroll through when in Berlin.
If one could make love to places, I'd do so with the Prenzlauerberg in Berlin. A lively neighborhood with plenty of charming cafés, Kneipes, restaurants, boutiques, record stores, second-hand shops...a real treat for all the senses.
From the smell of curry coming from the Asian restaurants to the great music played in places like the Blackland Metal Pub, from the taste of the hot white chocolate ("weiße heiße Schokolade") at Manolo Café to the endearing quirkiness of East Germany antiques at the VEBOrange shop...there's plenty of things to do and to see. I've never felt happier than in my long strolls through the Prenzlauerberg...this place is a real gem.
This photograph was taken in Berlin about a month ago and you can see the overground metro, and through the windows of the subway you can see some of the sights seen from that point of Warschauer Straße mainly the TV a tower on Alexanderplatz.
