Of Airfields and Fairytales: 14 hours in Berlin

Rat & Dragon jumped on a skateboard, a tandem bike and a snow tube to explore, thanks to a bunch of lively locals keen to show us a wintery Berlin you wont find in guidebooks.

 

Meet Coffus, Film Director.

 

“Have you always lived in Berlin?” we asked?

“No. I moved here with my parents when I was three months old.” came the precisely German reply. We loved him straight away.

 

Meet Bjorn, The Social Traveller.

 

“I have a tandem bike I can use to show you around. It’s safe, I rode it from Kuala Lumpur to Hong Kong for a dare.”

Would Rat & Dragon be able to keep up?

 

Meet Tatjana, Berlin City Guru.

 

Behind the scenes, Tatjana gave us some supercool insights into what it means to be a Berliner, from her favourite hide out (Café Bilderbuch) to the magical fairytale fountain at the Volkspark Friedrichshain, where statues all depict scenes from the Brother’s Grimm’s well known and loved fables.

 

The three-tier suggestions lead to a mad 14 hour scramble through Berlin by foot, bus, metro, tandem bike, skateboard and snow tube. We also ended up with new friendships with our insiders and their mates, who’s combined enthusiasm for the city they live in spilled over into our hearts, and thankfully, onto camera.

 

We leave Berlin three friends, one film and a hundred experiences the richer.

 

The Berlin Project – coming soon…

    Merry Christmas in Russia Nicola and Saxon! Hope you have lots of romantic snowy views as well as finding another bear or two, making a change from +10° grey skies and forecast drizzle here. Big hugs, Serena xx and Martin xx
