Гостевой дом Хонекера


Honecker's Guest House of the Council of Ministers and Politburo of the GDR Эрих Хонеккер был завсегдатаем бывшего "Гостевого дома Совета Министров и Политбюро ГДР", когда в 1968 году его открыл глава СЕПГ Вальтер Ульбрихт. Кроме Ульбрихта, преемник Эриха Хонекера по крайней мере дважды в год выступал в качестве гостя на Лейпцигской мессе. Приезжали и другие деятели ГДР и иностранные гости. В 1983 году Хонеккер и премьер-министр Баварии Франц Йозеф Штраус договорились о кредите на миллиард долларов для почти обанкротившегося ГДР в бомбоустойчивом бункере под домом. В 1995 году Тройханд продал собственность и здание гамбургской сети ресторанов Block, которая [...]

Университет, который разрушил режим


University of Leipzig with St Pauls Church © Universität Leipzig by Carlos S. Francis Более 700 лет сохранилась университетская церковь Святого Павла, сердце Лейпцигского университета (1409 г.). Тридцатилетняя война (1618-48 гг.), унесшая жизни 20% немцев, наполеоновские войны (1803-1815 гг.) и даже жестокий англо-американский воздушный налет 4 декабря 1943 г., в результате которого на город обрушились бомбы, не коснулись его. Бомбы соскользнули с круто наклонной крыши, и интерьер церкви остался нетронутым. Отважные лейпцигчане бросили воду в ревущее пламя и бросились в горящую церковь, чтобы спасти бесценные артефакты. В конце концов, церковь была символом города. Так же, как Нотр-Дам является символом [...]

Street Art in Leipzig


I took a walk around Westwerk last weekend and was amazed by the density of street art just in the vicinity of this building in the neighborhood of Plagwitz in Leipzig.

The most obvious would be graffiti, but also artists working with stencils, stencils on paper, wood blocks, tapes and vinyl. Some of which carry political statements, others are just pieces of art as such. I evens saw some lego pieces placed between the gaps of bricks, or larger figures that reminded me of [...]

Top things to do on a trip to Germany


As a local, I am offering some insights on what might be most interesting, delicious or exciting on a trip to Germany.

One of the best places to do so is Curry36 in Kreuzberg. For a great view while sipping some cocktails during the evening, head to Andel’s hotel’s bar Loft14 in Prenzlauer Berg. You will have a great view towards Fersehturm from this spot that not many people actually know about (not even Berliners). [...]
