Berlin Victory Column

Berlin Victory Column

#berlin #germany #tiergarten

Today’s photo, which comes from the location for Barack Obama’s speech in Berlin as a US presidential candidate during his visit to Germany in July 2008, was taken in Berlin’s Tiergarten Park. The original location for this statue is the center of this prior photo. The Victory Column was relocated to its present location in 1939 by the nazis. Had it not been relocated, it would have been destroyed in WWII.

This church is one of the more unique ones I’ve encountered. Besides the interior, the exterior is a half bombed out relic from WW2 and half octagonal 1960s work of “art”.

Rudolf turns 70 today. 70! He was a mere 67 years old when I took this photo at 2016 Copenhell.

CSD (Christopher Street Day)

2017 Berlin Gay Pride Parade

@Berlin_de_News @CSD_Berlin

One year ago today I found myself in the thick of Berlin’s gay pride parade on Christopher Street Day. I didn’t intend to go to Berlin for a gay pride festival; nor did I intend my AirBNB to be in the center of the gay quarter of Berlin. However, it ended up being a fun neighborhood and memorable experience.

This year’s CSD falls on July 28. I suppose it’s always on a Saturday near the end of July.
