this is Mr foosball

Thursday, July 2nd, 2015

this is our newest member of the EastSeven family- and possibly the most popular one.
we are all a bit crazy about football in germany. so crazy, it can be played even in pubs, drunk. there is even a professional league! this miniature version of a pitch can create as many emotions as a real game. if you don’t believe it, challenge one of the staff members and you will see. friendly receptionist turn into shouting and swearing children like versions of themselves.

what you don’t see on this picture is the outdoor shower just next to the foosball table where you can cool down.
BTW, we don’t call it foosball, but kicker.Topsy-turvy world

Berlin Beer Week – 13.06. – 20.06.2015

Friday, June 12th, 2015

IMG_20150517_145724172

 

it’s me again. today’s topic is my favourite topic, beer. good beer.
germany’s purity law! yes we know. good quality, safe to drink etc. BUT IT KILLS FLAVOUR. pilsener is a fantastic beer which you will not regret drinking. however, you will probably forget about it because it’s plain boring.
next week is perfect for all of us who have a distinctive taste and love their tastebuds. from tomorrow on, for one week all micro breweries, craft beer pubs and hop aficionados unite their powers to give us an unique chance to enjoy a new side of beer. click here for more info and enjoy yourself (it’s later than you think)

taaaaxi!


freakishly long berlin summer days

Sunday, May 31st, 2015

 

this is definitely the best time to visit our lovely city. it is not getting dark – literally – it is not getting dark. you go out to party, it’s not dark yet, you go home – it’s bright. the power of the summer skies is the most scenic thing i’ve ever seen. the colours range from bright orange to purple to baby blue. this spectacular sights are caused by, yes you knew it already, pollution. however, the particals in the air derive from nature. berlin is surrounded by sandy soil.
enough of that – come to berlin . it is fantastic


bork! bork! bork!

braufest berlin

 

if you know my blog, you know i like to rant about german beer. “it’s so boring – i fall asleep while drinking”. there is an alternative – there is a light. lovely people with lovely tastebuds have discovered the craft beers. the scene has started out slowly, but is getting bigger and bigger.
to check out their latest creations, go to the braufest berlin. located in one of my favourite spots in berlin, the RAW temple, from the 14th till the 17th may there will be beer!
let the games begin. Roughly 20 breweries will be participating and there is enough room to present themselves and their beers.
go to S-warschauer strasse for all the fun

Potsdam

 

The public transport strike is suspended for the next two weeks. People and visitors in Berlin and Brandenburg can normal use buses, trams and other public transportation. Nevertheless, the labor dispute between the union and the german rail is still unresolved. So take the opportunities to use the public transportation as long as possible to reach interesting attractions, museums and exhibitions in and around Berlin. Our tip: For only 7,40 Euro you have a day ticket for the tariff areas ABC. Use it to leave Berlin and visit Potsdams beautiful city and parks (Sanssouci for example) or the movie park Babelsberg. For more infos ask our friendly stuff.

 


a journey through time

ever wondered how berlin looked in the 80ies?

most parts of the wall have been torn down shortly after reunification. there are only a few parts left like the east side gallery albeit they fail to communicte a feeling. berlin was a dirty place – coal heating and smokey factories on the eastern part, punks and alternative culture in the west. present-day berlin is rather a different one. Although you can still smell the past here and there ( especially in görlitzer park)

this beatiful panoramic exhibition gives you an authentic insight in the everyday live on the border between the 2 berlins. experience border fortifications and the daily horror at Yadegar Asisi’s Panorama.

we went to check it out and found it worthwile!
