With its driven start-up scene and preeminent role as a design capital, Fab.de has flourished in a place where taking chances and having first-time experiences are essential parts of the city’s spirit.
In his guide to Berlin, Kirsch has picked some places that mean much to both him as well as the Geist of the city as a whole. From shadows of its past to the ebullient cultural hubs of its present, these are the places where Berlin’s identity has been forged and is currently being molded for the future.
