The last Days in Berlin-edition was posted in August this summer, so you can easily say it’s about time to post a new one. Well, here you go!
This weekend was the most impressive and special weekend you’ll find in Berlin for a long time. The Wall fell 25 years ago and that historical fact was celebrated from 7 to 9 November.
Berlin was this weekend temporarily divided from Bornholmer Strasse to Mauerpark and the Berlin Wall Memorial on Bernauer Strasse to the Reichstag, past the Brandenburg Gate and Checkpoint Charlie to the East Side Gallery: 8,000 white balloonlamps marked the former Wall.
We decided to walk a small part of that 15km route. Especially the East Side Gallery really made a huge impression with the old wall next to the new, enlightened one.

Walking towards Brandenburger Tor we walked past the Siegessäule, Straße des 17. Juni.
On Saturdaynight we were invited for a party hosted by AirBnB, completely focused on The Wall.
With the Belong Anywhere-campaign AirBnB tells the story of Jörg and Kai, two guards from the Berliner wall, each on another side. They met each other after a long, long while via AirBnB. Watch the beautiful animated story right here.
And the autumn struck. All those colors!
I’m quite a metalfan (might be a surprise for some of you) and each year during autumn I get to see a lot of my favoriet bands live. And thank heavens that was still the case this year with concerts from Opeth and In Flames, with my now-favorite While She Sleeps as opener.
And a special closure of the awesome concertweek: Damien Rice in Michelberger Hotel!
Rice played a surprise gig in the hotel and blew everyone away.
I celebrated my birthday half October with these two divine cakes. The recipe for the first brownie marshmellowcake can be found here, the second chocolatepie will be explained soon.
Sweet, sweet visitors from Holland!
And as always we’ve visited a lot of flohmarkets. It really never bores me to walk past all those stalls and see all the beauty and vintage items for sale.

And, not to miss: Neue Heimat, one of my favorite places to visit on a regular basis.
