Winter tip

I have signed up for most the newsletters I have run into here in Berlin, and sometimes it pays off. Look what they have done to Badeshiff, the outdoors swimming pool that sits in the Spree, to prepare for winter:

Isn't it beautiful? And inside are (Finnish) saunas, the swimming pool and a bar. It opens tomorrow, 30.10. and until 5.11. the entry fee is 2 for 1 (€12 for three hours).

If you are looking for something to do for Halloween, this sounds really nice; a candle-lit audio presentation of the classic radio play ‘Dracula‘ narrated by Orson Welles at newly opened Café Hilda in Prenzlberg. None of that commercial plastic-pumpkin-crap, thank you very much :)


  1. oh yee, i've forgotten about the winter-costume that badeschiff gets. i read about it in Hesari once, but i've never really been here in the winter properly. let's go some time! :)

  2. Oh this is so exciting!!! Thanks for the tip; I'm totally heading there tomorrow! ^_^ Just stumbled upon your blog. It's lovely and so resourceful! I'm an American living in Berlin for 3 months. Heading to Helsinki on Friday for 4 days... if you're interested in passing along any tips, I'd be most appreciative. Thanks!

  3. Cool, thanks :) I get ridiculously excited when I find places/food/music/products that I like, and can't help but share...

    I'd be very glad to help you with a few tips on Helsinki (the little I know, I haven't lived there for a while!) – you can email me some questions at finnerica AT gmail . com if you want.

  4. Very efficiently written story. It will be valuable to anyone who utilizes it, as well as yours truly :). Keep doing what you are doing – i will definitely read more posts. pension frankfurt oder
