Aux Mervelleux de Fred Berlin

Aux Merveilleux de Fred in Berlin

Finally, the French delights from Aux Merveilleux de Fred are available for the Berlin gourmand now as well. The beautiful Cafe & Patisserie has just opened six weeks ago. You can buy the whole range of the famous baking goods you may know from Paris. Not only „Les Merveilleux“ but also „Le Cramiques“ – a fluffy, white bread with Raisins, sugar coating or chocolate bits. Delicious is not enough to describe this bread.

Berlin – a Saturday in The Forrest

Well, that’s the thing with Berlin, being in the press for being one of Europe’s most trendy, cool, cheap, party city only shows one little bit from this beautiful city. Almost every real Berliner will inform you this reputation has not so much to do with the city we grew up. Berlin is a very green“ city.  There are many parks like the Tiergarten (210 hectares (520 acres)),  Tempelhofer Park, Mauerpark and many, many more. Furthermore 18 % of the Area of Berlin is Forrest, like the Grunewald and the Spandauer Forrest.

Funkturm Berlin

Very close to the ICC is the Berliner Funkturm, a former broadcasting Tower. the tower is built by Heinrich Straumer in the 1920ies on the occasion of the third international Funkausstellung. The lange Lulatsch as the monument is nicknamed in Berlin, is more than 40 Years older than the Berliner Fernsehturm and now a protected monument. There is now a restaurant and etc., I advent been on the Top since I was child, but the view is breathtaking and worth a visit.
