The Körnerpark may be quite small, but it has a lot to offer.
This Park was built in the time of 1912 – 1916 after the former owner Franz Körner donated his gravel pit on condition that the park would be named after him. It is 2,4 ha big and contains a waterfall-cascade, a fountain, an orangery and a café, which hosts various types of exhibitions and concerts.
Due to the fact that it used to be a gravel pit the land is between 5 and 7 metres below the normal street level.
The Körnerpark was designed and built in the style of neo-baroque and is one of the few creations of this kind in Berlin. Being located in the Schierkerstr., Neukölln it’s easy to reach by S-Bahn and a little walk along the Karl-Mar-Straße and the Schierkerstraße.
It’s nice to hang out in the meadows, walk through the garden, drink a cup of coffee in the café or go inside and check out he exhibition (for free)…In summer there are even outdoor concerts on the forecourt of the café!

Trench, chesterfield, covert, raglan. The coat has a vocabulary of its own. And like words we use today, these styles still look current though their roots may go as far back as the mid 19th century. As if by lending these vintage snaps color and unruly hair we can easily mistake the coats to be from today.
The 2015 UEFA Champions League Final will be held at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin on June 6. It is a place full of history and is also the only football stadium with a blue track course. Some say it is the most beautiful stadium in the world, and I totally agree with them. But then agai,n I might be biased because it is the home court of my favorite team, Hertha BSC Berlin—my blue-white bloodline.

A road trip is a celebration of little freedoms. It’s a chance to break out of a rut and to be a little unruly. All the mischief may be off limits to the camera, so the things we do photograph need to serve our memory well: They must convey the relief, fun and color of our secret sprees.
