    The 'fat' statues...

    Even if the main goal of my trip to Berlin was not tourism, when some free time was available, I've used it to do some sight seeing : strolling in the street without guidebook and without any specific goal.

    When discovering the Brandenburg gate I was puzzled by the statue of this fat horse standing in front of the central arch! What could it means? I knew Berlin was quite renewed for modern art but still, it was quite amazing to see such a statue in front of such a known landmark!

    On my way back to the hotel, I was quite surprised again when I discovered the lustgarten. That is already quite weird to give such a name to the park just in front of a cathedral. It was even more weird to populate this park with several statues of naked fat women (and other strange stuff). Indeed I found it quite a funny way to pull the leg of the clergy ;-)

    I've later found out those statues were made by Fernando Botero and they were indeed part of a temporarily exhibition organized by the Columbian embassy.
    I could easily live without the horse statue but I found the concept of lustgarten quite funny, too bad it's going to disappear!

    Kulturforum, events

    Kulturforum is a modern complex of museums, galleries, libraries and the Philharmonic Hall located at one area. It started to grow in late 60'. The architecture of some buildings put there, both outside and inside, was interesting although not my favourite

    Many great cultural and artistic events took place there. My strong recommendation is to check what's going on there and generally in Berlin not to miss something interesting for you - follow the link below, please.
