If you’re of a certain age (oh, mid-sixties for example) and were into “the new wave” of music that came out in the eighties, you might recall a German art band called Einstürzende Neubauten: translation, Collapsing New Buildings. Noisy, obtuse, artsy, they personified some of what it felt to be like during the 1980’s. “Disaffected, hopeless, no future, but let’s dance anyway.” As was in so many times in the past, Germany led the way in curious and free thinking. It still does, but has cast its fate to the wind in other ways; specifically, being the torch bearer for itself and all of the EU. No small task, and they do it well.
But, let’s go back even further in time to experience real Einstürzende Neubauten. And this is a time and a place that holds a special feeling in Berlin’s history, as is often the case when something – could be anything – takes you back in time and you realise that its time has come, sadly. Berlin was the home of the beautiful and special (in the truest sense of the word) Tegel airport in Berlin. It has reached its end and is closed. But, learn more about why this building was so loved by the German people. History in the making. Learn more here.
When you fly, you’ll fly into Berlin Brandenburg Airport. No matter where though, choose Eurowings, Lufthansa’s low-cost option. It’s a win win. Click here.
