SPOTTED IN PASSING: THE GATE

A passage connecting two historical cemeteries in Bergmannstraße in Kreuzberg was created by tearing down a section of an old family tomb.

The cemeteries in Bergmannstraße are among the most beautiful burial grounds in Berlin and are the last resting place of many prominent Berliners, with Gustav Stresemann (German Chancellor, Secretary for Foreign Affairs in the days of the Weimar Republic week as Peace Nobel Price winner in 1926), theologist and philosopher Friedrich Daniel Schleiermacher and his intellectual sparring-partner and now also eternal neighbour, theologist Philipp Konrad Marheineke) among others.

SPOTTED IN PASSING: THE TOP OF THE HILL

Top of the Cross Hill: to of the Kreuzberg in the Viktoria Park, looking down towards Grossbeerenstrasse and the Landwehrkanal.

The switched-off waterfall (in summer water is pumped uphill by the machines hidden inside a small red-brick building next to the restaurant at the foot of the Kreuzberg) offers a great and pretty unique opportunity: you can climb up that hill along the dry waterfall bed.

Keeps you fit and happy;)
