Berlin – a city break in the bohemian capital of Europe
Created by Mondo for Finnair
Brezhnev and Honecker, locked in the eternal Fraternal Kiss on the preserved section of the Berlin Wall. Countless visiting couples have posed in front of the graffiti to immortalise their own kiss.
The graffiti, which is based on an iconic photograph, has become one of Berlin’s most popular attractions, although otherwise the division of the city into East and West is now only a distant memory. A section of the wall, about a kilometre long, has been preserved and transformed into an art display as the East Side Gallery on the eastern bank of the river Spree.
Berlin has become the most bohemian of European capitals that lives in a constant state of flux. The title of trendiest city district changes hands frequently, giving way to gentrification and taking Berlin’s best restaurants, cafés and bars to other quarters.
Is lively Kreuzberg the place to be or has Neukölln already surpassed it? You will have to see for yourself. Berlin is a made for urban explorers.
