if you enter a kino you are inside a cinema

DSC09287at least when in germany… and if you enter this particular kino you are inside the kino international, the main cinema for premieres of the gdr. it’s a fantastic cinema with its interior only slightly modernized since the 60s. definitely worth a visit if you’re in berlin. it’s quite close to alexanderplatz, too.

it’s apparently not simply one former gas station but in fact the oldest still existing gas station building in the whole of the netherlands. it was built in 1933, is now part of the limburgs museum and can be rented as a meeting room.

OST

_a301032volksbühne, berlin mitte, 2016

fun fact: did you know ‘ost’ is the swedish word for cheese? the etymology of cheese and its siblings is quite interesting and i learned a lot from the internet again.

‘ost’ btw. is the german (short form) word for ‘east’
