    Stone sculpture

    by matcrazy1 Written Apr 2, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This strange stone sculpture was put on the square located by the Neue Nationalgalerie (New Gallery) where I was watching world famous paintings from collection of MoMA (Mueum of Modern Art New York). The sculpture maybe used as a bench but rather not in February.

    Fountain of nudity

    by matcrazy1 Updated Mar 21, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This fountain full of nude statues stood at Wittenbergplatz oposite to famous KaDeWe department store. Walking father east to Nollendorfplatz I can say that this fountain stood at the end of upclass Berlin. It didn't operate in February and looked somewhat sad, partly covered by not fresh snow.

    Modern sculpture

    by matcrazy1 Updated Mar 21, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I was told that this modern, huge sculpture on my picture was a symbol of main shopping street of former West Berlin - Kurfürstendamm (Ku-Damm). But in real it stands in the middle of Tauentzienstraße (before Nürnbergerstraße, district Schöneberg) which is extension of Ku-Damm.
    It was quite popular place for taking pictures. Before I took this picture I saw two young couples posing there.

    Bears...

    by coceng Written Sep 10, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bears, the Berlin symbol. Now I know why some friends asked me to look for some German bears when I am in Berlin. I saw them everywhere ! Almost.
    There are all kinds of colours & posings of these bears. They were at odd places where sometimes you wouldn't expect to see them. It looks fun that way.
    The creators or the designers of these bears are written down on EACH one of them. If you have so much times to lose, play a game ! Like, look for a bear designed by such & such. Ain't that fun ? Well, not to me really but maybe to some kids visiting Berlin. Better than doing drugs there !

    Okay, who created this one ?

    Atreet Art is very popular in Berlin. On my way to Alexanderplatz by train from the airport, I remember seeing a bizzare looking statue of two figures. In the Kulturforum there were these red and blue figures - not sure what they signify. Is it the amalgamation of East & West?

    The bears of Berlin

    by sim1 Updated Sep 3, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    When I walked through the city center of Berlin, I saw statues of bears everywhere. On every corner of the street, in front of hotels, and dozens at "Unter dem Linden". Hahaha, I thought they were so much fun, I have made quite a few pictures of them... so here they are!!!

    In the picture above you can see me with the Spiegelbär
    Name of the bear : Spiegelbär
    Location : Friedrichstr./Leipziger Str.
    Artist : Nikolai Ilieff

    You can read more info about the bears on : http://www.buddy-baer.com/index.html (website is in German).
    I have tried to add the name of the bear, artist and location to most of the pictures. But for a few of the bears I haven't found the info yet.... so if you recognize the bear, and know it's name, please let me know!!!

    Part of Berlin's charm is the street art, and not just in the places most people assume (Kreuzberg, Prenzlauer Berg), but everywhere- Schöneberg, Moabit, Neukölln, Charlottenburg, etc...

    Marx & Engles Platz

    by Blatherwick Written Dec 19, 2004

    In the park opposite Alexanderplatz you will find the statue of Marx and Engles. It isn't really a must see thing but it isn't inconvenient to get there and makes for a great photo opportunity.
