Old Iraqi Embassy
Also the former Iraqi embassy to East Germany (Tschaikowskistraße 51, 13156 Berlin) is still open for everyone! It’s just amazing to stumble upon all these old papers, files, photos and other stuff…

Decayed Theme Park
Spreepark (Wasserweg, 12435 Berlin) is Berlin’s former most famous theme park. Located riverside of the Spree, it still hosts a giant wheel and several other funfair rides and dinosaurs…
