the Official Opening

Berlin’s International Beer Festival is taking place this weekend (August 2nd-4th, 2013) in Friedrichshain. About 320 breweries from 86 countries will present more than 2,000 beer specialties. The festival claims to be the longest Beer Garden in the world, and it’s free. Festival organizers are anticipating 800,000 visitors

Beer Stands
Line Karl-Marx-Allee


The mile-long event will be held along Karl-Marx-Allee between Strausberger Platz and Frankfurter Tor. Luckily, I live a few minutes away by foot and can sample without the need for a designated driver.  

Food is also on the Menu
Including Horse

In a victory for the right to breath fresh air, a Düsseldorf court has ordered a heavy smoker to vacate his apartment after tenant complaints that the unhealthy air emanating from his dwelling poses a serious health risk. Friedhelm Adolfs had lived in his home for 40 years, but no more.

The Düsseldorf court found that Aldofs had unreasonably harassed his neighbors with smoke. Instead of venting his apartment through the windows, he had closed the blinds and let the stench flow into the stairwell.
