No Sausages allowed...Dachshunds are notorious in Germany, they're name means badger dog, unfortunately I only clocked five whilst I was there, most most of them had very dapper scarves on!
Found a random flea market, lots of sausage dog toys for sale!
Oranienburger Straße was one of my favourite areas of Berlin, where gallery Tacheles was formerly a department store that was bombed in the war, and then then abandoned and taken over by a commune of artists. The building smells of wee and is covered in graffiti, see photos below, but its an amazing place to visit, with artists occupying all the many rooms over many floors. One of the most interesting places I have ever visited, there is a good article about it here too. If you want to find this place, don't bother asking the locals, even the police sent us in the wrong direction, for some reason they don't like this commune!!!
Every inch is covered in graffiti...
A chair made out of recycled drums...so cool!
One of the sculptures downstairs in the outside space.
Cocktails!Oona gallery was nearby, a contemporary jewellery gallery, but was shut unfortunately, it was a lot smaller than I imagined it would be so I had a good nose in the window instead and saw some amazing work.
Fernsehturm, at Alexanderplatz.
I bought "Breath of Berlin" a limited edition fragrance only available at KaDaWe, the second biggest department store in the world. The bottle is based on this building. The smell is lovely, really fruity and sweet, mmmm.
Will Post Part 2 tomorrow!
Goodbye, untill next time!
