About Me

I ramble about a number of things - but travel experiences, movies and music feature prominently. See my label cloud for a better idea. All comnments and opinions on this blog are my own, and do not in any way reflect the opinions/position of my employer (past/current/future).

Kunsthaus Tacheles

From the outside, it does not look like much. In fact, it looks like a dilapidated building, which should have been demolished long ago. In reality, it is one of the best art and culture centers I have ever been to. It is a haven for art of all types, and the building itself has a very colourful history (according to Wikipedia anyway).

Huge, brilliant detail, ad?

Even bigger, but more true to the artform

Berlin has a lot of graffiti - but this is one of the best places to see the real grand work - murals and art works that are 6 storeys high - with both the the really beautiful and precise and the freeform. I have been here a number of times since I have been in Berlin, and I think I will keep up coming back.

By the main entrance

Up the stairs to the top

Tacheles features a number of bars, two movie theatres with really plush sofas (should try it out sometime) and off course, a number of artist studios and exhibitions.

looks fantastic! Could spend hours just staring at the walls. Oh to be Shirley Valentine in Berlin :)

Glad you're enjoying it.
