Berlin: Past and present

Laura Knight

I've just got back from a fantastic trip to Berlin, which both satisfied and surprised me. It's a wonderful place to find yourself, especially for a creative professional. Plentiful are the stunning galleries and museums, great shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, and of course a sobering and incaptivating history. I also coincided my time here with the DMY Design Festival dates, so a worthwhile trip to the vast, disused Templehof airport where it was being held, was included.

Hamburger Bahnhof Museum of modern art and the impressive Holocaust Memorial.

I stayed at the Michelberger Hotel on the edge of the Friedrichshain district. A great hotel and a great location, right by the longest remaining stretch of the Berlin wall. It's worth heading over for this graffitied historic landmark, as well as it's bars and restaurants, even if you aren't staying here.

My overall feelings of Berlin are very fond ones. The people are friendly and helpful, the culture is varied and experimental. The constraints of the past are gone (not long since however) and Berlin's people are building their city up in a way it hasn't experienced before. There's a real sense of change afoot here. I left wanting more, and planning my return.
