An Odyseey to Sausagecity

Posted on | April 29, 2012

Frankfurt, LUMINALE, April 2012.

Considering that the sun goes down at 8.30 pm and the lights of the festival turn off right after Midnight, it doesn’t seem that the Frankfurters picked the right timing for a light installation festival. Nonetheless, it was worth checking out the highlights of this light spectacle – even though I only had exactly 90 minutes to run around town.

Insiders’ Tip in Berlin Neukölln

Posted on | April 21, 2012

   

A charming Italian eatery in Berlin Neukölln, hidden in the 2nd backyard (walk through the alley on the photo above) is absolutely recommended by my new Berliner pal Steffen Stäuber: LAVANDERIA VECCHIA. The ‘trattoria’ used to be a laundry shop – it is now a visual as well as multi-sensoric treat. Eat there spontaneously for lunch or book a table for dinner two months in advance.
