Description

Much like the fall of the it’s eponymous Wall— the defining symbol of the thaw of the Cold War— Berlin is a city where borders are crossed and prejudices are torn down. Treading across and blurring perimeters of commerce and art, high culture and low culture, the traditional and the modern, the city heartily welcomes peoples and cultures of all kinds. Turkish street food alongside a fine dining restaurant run by a gangster-turned-Michelin star chef; an art gallery nestled in a WWII bunker and an airport transformed into a park— these are just a few examples of the spirit of diversity that prevail throughout the city of Berlin.

BERLIN is part of the Magazine B cities collection, including BALI, PORTLAND, SEOUL, KYOTO and BANGKOK

Quotes:

There is no such thing as a real Berliner any more. My friends and coworkers are not from Berlin. Newcomers have taken over the city and become the new Berliners. Recently I went to a cathedral to participate in a communion service for my eight-year-old son. Among the 68 parents there, I was the only one who was born and raised in Berlin. There is no tradition in Berlin. People in Berlin like new things. I think the tradition of Berlin is not having any traditions.
David S. Kastner, CEO of Hackesche Höfe
High-end restaurants of Berlin don’t reject people just because they wear sneakers. This city never judges people based on what they look like. I think this makes for the unique atmosphere of Berlin. Kreuzberg is the cultural base, where young people from different countries come together. No prejudice, no interference. Free and sweet.
Herbert Hofmann, Creative Director of Voo Store
