Escape: Victoriapark & Kreuzberg

Sponsored by Belsazar Vermouth

Have you ever asked yourself, why Kreuzberg is actually named Kreuzberg? Turns out it’s strikingly simple: it’s named after the cross on top of a hill in Victoriapark, located in the south west corner of the borough. In contrary to most of the rare and small “hills” in Berlin – which are mostly high piles of war-rubble – this one’s a natural, glaciation formed hill. Rising 66m above the ground, topped with a Prussian national monument, it’s a perfect place for a sundown-drink with a Belsazar Vermouth. Read on for a chance to win an all-inclusive package of Belsazar.

Treptower Park

Escape: Treptower Park

It’s not really an escape, since Treptower Park is basically in Berlin, but still, it’s my personal favorite Berlin park. And it has been for years. Treptower Park features an irresistable mix of wild sceneries with lakes and the connected beautiful and large forest called Plänterwald, with the weird yet compelling austerity of the Soviet war memorial from 1949 and the ruinous wonderland of the former Spreepark amusement park. It’s the best place to spend a warm late summer afternoon.

Park in Berlin: Spreepark

In 1969, the GDR opened what was presumably the closest thing to Disneyland in East Berlin: Spreepark. Located nearby to Soviet Memorial at Treptower Park, school children would make trips to both in one day, first pledging allegiance to the GDR, and then spending the day on the amusement park grounds, congealing the two memories together.

StilimPark: a Garden Party

The occasion of the get-together of the following people was a birthday celebration in a huge park.



Jessica
Jessica allowed us to published the picture of her which is on our exibition’s flyer. And we also used this picture for press purposes. Therefor she was seen all over Berlin. So we say: Thanks Jessi.
She also gave an Ok for taking another picture of her impeccable style.



Hanns-Christoph, minister and Peter, dentist (in black)
Ladies in dresses and of course gents in (linen) suits. A classic for a day out in the wild.


Till, musician
What I am terribly sorry for is that you can not see Till’s shoes. Forgot to take a detail shot. He had those fine two-tones (brown/white). Maybe you are able to see some of it shining through the blades of grass. The bag is from Jessi, as you might have noticed earlier. And the bucket is for the birthday flowers. Cute, huh?
