After 52 weeks (one entire year!) it’s time to say goodbye again – but not quite yet to all of Berlin (although it was a close call). We’ve decided to stay on a little longer and are just changing neighborhoods again. So the 52nd weekly video is dedicated the geographic heart of Berlin: Mitte.

To be precise it’s a personal view of Mitte, featuring spots that are meaningful to me (and not all fit):
Rosenthaler Platz and Scott and Sankt Oberholz and Rosenthaler Grill
Plattenbauten and Squat and new buildings on Linienstrasse (and Kleine Rosenthaler Strasse)
Alias street art on Brunnenstrasse
Alexanderplatz with Weltzeituhr and TV Tower
Cheesecake at Kaffee Mitte
Wei Wei and other street art on Alte Schönhauser Allee (across from Good Morning, Veitnam)
Weinmeisterstrasse Haus
Elke Holzapfel and Mandy Witt at Soma
Robert Mapplethorpe exhibit at CO Berlin on Oranienstrasse
Tacheles with Polizei and Scott Solary and John Jasek

Robert Mapplethorp exhibit at CO Berlin

And last but not least “The Beach” on the Spree across from Museumsinsel where we’ve had many sunset beers and will hopeful bid farewell to Marisa Baptista tonight before she moves back to Portugal tomorrow.

Oh, “what a difference a year makes” or “Kinder, wie die Zeit vergeht”.

And the amazing song you’ve heard in this video and also in the “Ciao Kreuzberg” episode (Week 14) is the still unreleased track “Berlin – New York” by Ralf Zwiebel (of Radiopilot and All Button In).
