In English:

Whirlwind visit to Berlin

Fall of Berlin wall happened in November 9, 1989. Our first visit to Berlin was in 1995. It was not just any wall, because it was about 140km / 87mi long. in 1995 we wanted to see what changes there were. There were some indeed. in 2018, we decided to visit there again. Our visit lasted two night and one day.

Berlin in one whole day does not sound great. Our plan was to see couple of its highlights only – Checkpoint Charlie, Brandenburg Gate and Reichstag building. This is not much indeed. Our walk started early in the morning and this can be seen throughout my photos – barely no traffic and long shadows. We found a couple of nice surprises for us – Trabant (Trabi) cars and some United Buddy Bears. Buddy Bears visited Helsinki in 2010 and I shot photos of every bears. I do like them and felt in loved them in Helsinki. The idea of Buddy Bears is from Berlin. The initiators of the Buddy Bears are Klaus and Eva Herlitz.

Other photos show views around here and there presenting old colorful architecture. Berlin experience aroused a desire in us to explore it in-depth later with a visit of a few days, especially because its inhabitants were very friendly and helpful towards us.

En español:

Visita relámpago a Berlín

La caída del muro de Berlín ocurrió el 9 de noviembre de 1989. Efectuamos Nuestra primera visita a Berlín fue en 1995. No fue un muro cualquiera, porque tenía unos 140 km / 87 millas de largo. En 1995 queríamos ver qué cambios había sucedido. Hubo algunos de hecho. En 2018, decidimos visitar allí de nuevo. Nuestra visita duró dos noches y un día.

Berlín en un día entero no suena genial. Nuestro plan consistió en ver solo algunos de sus aspectos más destacados: Punto de control Charlie, Puerta de Brandenburgo y el edificio del Reichstag. Esto no es mucho de hecho. Nuestra caminata comenzó temprano en la mañana y esto se puede ver a través de mis fotos, apenas sin tráfico y largas sombras. Encontramos un par de sorpresas agradables para nosotros: Trabant (Trabi) automóviles de bajo costo y algunos Osos Buddy. Osos Buddy visitó Helsinki en 2010 y tomé fotos de cada los osos. Me gustaron y yo me enamoré de ellos en Helsinki. La idea original de Osos Buddy es de Berlín. Los iniciadores de los Buddy Bears son Klaus y Eva Herlitz.

Otras fotos vos muestran vistas por aquí y por allá que presentan la arquitectura vieja y colorida. La experiencia de Berlín despertó en nosotros el deseo de explorarla en profundidad más tarde con una visita de unos días, especialmente porque sus habitantes fueron muy amables y de gran ayuda para nosotros.

Visite éclair à Berlin

La chute du mur de Berlin s’est produite le 9 novembre 1989. Notre première visite à Berlin remonte à 1995. Ce n’était pas n’importe quel mur, car il mesurait environ 140 km. En 1995, nous voulions voir quels changements il y avait, s’il y en a eu. Il y a eu quelques effectivement. En 2018, nous avons décidé d’y retourner. Notre visite a duré deux nuits et un jour.

Berlin en une journée entière, ça ne sonne pas très bien. Notre plan était de ne voir que quelques-uns de ses points forts – Punto de control Charlie, porte de Brandebourg et Palais du Reichstag. Ce n’est pas beaucoup en effet. Notre promenade a commencé tôt le matin et cela on peut voir à travers mes photos – preque pas de circulation et de longues ombres. Nous avons trouvé quelques belles surprises pour nous – des voitures Trabant (Trabi) à très bas coût et des United Buddy Bears (Les Ours copains). Buddy Bears ont visité à Helsinki en 2010 et j’ai pris des photos de tous les ours. Je les aime et je tombé amoureux d’eux à Helsinki. L’idée de Buddy Bears vient de Berlin. Les initiateurs des Buddy Bears sont Klaus et Eva Herlitz.

D’autres photos montrent des vues ici et là présentant une vieille architecture colorée. L’expérience berlinoise a suscité en nous le désir de l’explorer en profondeur plus tard avec une visite de quelques jours, notamment parce que ses habitants étaient très sympathiques et serviables envers nous.

Em português:

Visita relâmpago a Berlim

A queda do muro de Berlim aconteceu em 9 de novembro de 1989. A nossa primeira visita a Berlim foi em 1995. Não era um muro qualquer, porque tinha cerca de 140 km / 87mi de comprimento. Em 1995, queríamos ver quais mudanças ocorreram. Houve algumas de fato. Em 2018, decidimos visitar lá novamente. Nossa visita durou duas noites e um dia.

Berlim em um dia inteiro não parece legal. O nosso plano era ver apenas alguns destaques – Checkpoint Charlie, Portão de Brandenburgo e Palácio do Reichstag. Isto não é realmente muito. A nossa caminhada começou de manhã cedo e isso pode ser visto nas minhas fotos – quase sem qualquer tráfego e longas sombras. Encontramos algumas surpresas legais para nós – carros Trabant (Trabi) e alguns United Buddy Bears ( Buddy Bär – Ursos Camaradas). Buddy Bears visitou Helsinque em 2010 e tirei fotos de todos os ursos. Eu gosto deles e me apaixonei por eles em Helsinque. A idéia de Buddy Bears vinha de Berlim. Os iniciadores dos Buddy Bears são Klaus e Eva Herlitz.

As outras fotografias mostram vistas por aqui e por lá, apresentando uma arquitetura colorida antiga.A experiência de Berlim despertou em nós um desejo de explorá-la mais tarde, com uma visita de alguns dias, principalmente porque seus habitantes eram muito amigáveis e prestativos pra nós.

  1. Actually there aren’t many tourists here in Berlin , and the city is very quiet indeed due to school holidays. Many Germans now at the Baltic Sea where beaches were partially so full that local administration had to close them because of the bloody virus. Next week we leave for the Bavarian countryside for 1 week, good to get out of the big city for some time. 🙂

    • Hello.

      Thank you commenting my Berlin post. Same situation is in Finland. We just spent 11 days on road trip in Finland. Few tourists here and there. On the road we saw only one Swiss car. At the Arctic Circle we heard, English, German, Spanish and one language, which did not know if it is was Korean or Japanese. If tourists were lacking, then there more reindeers! Everywhre! After two weeks, I will start my series of “Reindeer Road Trip”.

      Have a great day!

  3. Thank you Matti for your awesome photos of Berlin! I have been there couple of times and it is really fascinating city. My daughter just visited it couple of weeks ago and she was surprised of the restrictions there still are. I was so happy to see the Berlin bear in your post as I saw the bears in Helsinki. Take care and enjoy our beautiful summer!

  6. I was there before the wall fell and yes; quite a few changes. Did you know that before the reunion of East- and West Germany the waterways (canals, rivers) in West Berlin were controlled by East Germany?

      Thank you giving additional information and leaving interesting comment. BTW, Are you aware about the film: One, Two, Three is a 1961 American comedy film directed by Billy Wilder and written by Wilder and I. A. L. Diamond. If not try to find it. I do not know how many times; we have seen during these years.

      • I can’t recall this movie but will search for it!!! BTW Recently we have seen quite a few Scandinavian TV-series (thrillers/detectives). All from Denmark, Sweden and Norway. Absolute good!!! Far better than the average American junk. Wonder if there are any from Finland???

        • Hello Herman.

          Well, there are Finnish detective series indeed. Wikipedia listed 22. We are not fond of them. We have seen all from those countries which you listed and two from Greenland. We have been seeing German TV station ZFD and Finland’s TV called YLE, has presented “Krimis” during decades. Yet today there are two Krimis in a week.

          We love for example, Der Alte, Ein Fall für Zwei, Letze Spur Berlin, Kriminalist, SOKO Köln and Der Staatsanwalt. We stared to follow them when Derrick was presented in TV. It was long time ago

          If you are using some VPN. If you have one, then set it in Germany and search for ZDF. It is the best TV canal for Krimis.

          https://www.zdf.de/

          Its Mediathek offers everything”

          Have a good day!

  12. I like the concept of Buddy Bears. I have seen comparable animals in various US cities. in Crystal City, Va, just across the Potomac River from Washington DC, they had painted Elephants (symbol of the Republican Party) and Donkeys (symbol of the Democratic Party) scattered around the major pedestrian areas. In Avalon, on Catalina Island, 13 miles off the coast of Long Beach, CA, they had decorated statues of Bisons. Bison or buffalo were imported to the island for a Western shot in the 1920s or 30s. Any bison scenes were cut from the film, but the bison remained. The herd grew so large that part of it was relocated to Camp Pendleton Marine Corps base between Los Angeles and San Diego.

Too crowded, too noisy… My family had a brown Trabant when I was a kid. Oh how I hated this car..!! For sure it was nice to have one. Better than taking the bus 😉 But as I always say… for me it s a “carton de blamage” LOL. Nice photos 🙂 Greets, Frauke

    I will check out your link to the Buddy Bears, Thanks!

    Those beautiful balconies… whoa!
    The horses on top of the Brandenburg gate are amazing too, as is the sculpture stonework directly below it. LOVE IT! 🙂

The people are wonderful, the history is fascinating, and the language is marvelous. We also saw Check Point Charlie. I was amazed that you can still see some remnants of where the wall stood in the street.

  33. I lived in Berlin for about six months but to be honest for me it was a massive blur of parties and nightclubs one summer….the best place to be young!
