It would be great if the towers around Alexanderplatz would at least take some inspiration from towers like this. It would create something unique instead of just random buildings you find everywhere.

For those who associate Kreuzberg only with multi-culturalism, here is something different: Liebfrauenkirche in the Wranglerstrasse.

A more famous building this time, just a stone-throw fron the above "Schlesiches Tor"; the "Oberbaumbrücke" (Upper-tree bridge), connecting Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain.

There is no place in Berlin with a bigger chance of encountering drunk, international youth on a weekend night, which -off course, neither gives to nor takes from its architectural value.

CLASSICAL KREUZBERG

Here´s some picture indicating what a nice residential area the area of present day Kreuzberg must have been before the war - presently one of the districts in Berlin towards which the most prejudice exist.

The Planufer:


The Landwehrkanal with the Admiralbrücke:


The crossing Mariannenstrasse and Naunynstrasse:


The Engelbecken and the ruin of the St-Michael church.


Naunynstrasse:


The former Luisenstädtischer Kanal and the St-Thomas church.


Muskauer Strasse:


View from the Oberbaumbrücke towards the Kreuzberger Spree-bank:


Buildings surrounding the Mariannenplatz:


The Wranglerstraße and the Taborkirche:

This area is testament to the wonderful planning and design that the Wilhelmine era architects created. The lovely formality of the Michael Church facing the long sweep of gardens and lagoons was uncommon for inner city design, and that it generally remains is a wonderful heritage. Love to see the church restored.

I photographed these historical Photos at Hallesches Tor subway station, also in Kreuzberg.

The first shows the external part of that same subway station in the early 20th century.


War destructions.


This building with the subway going through it used to stand close to "Gleisdreieck", it was never rebuild.

CÖLLN

South of the part of the Museumsinsel where the city palace is presently being rebuild, the city of "Cölln" once lied. It was back when Berlin was still very small. The areas to the east of the Museumsinsel was Berlin - part of the Museumsinsel and the area to its south was Cölln. Today, even Neukölln (new Kölln), lying 10 km. away, is within Berlins geographical boundaries with a good margin.

The Märkisches Museum; museum of Berlins history:


Märkisches Ufer:


View over to "Berlin".


The back side of the Märkisches Museum.


A detail of the Märkisches Museum.


Unfortunately, the surroundings of the area are not optimally preserved, commie-blocks being present both on the southern tip of the Museumsinsel and on the eastern Spree-bank.
