SUBCULTOURS BERLINOSCOPE #3 - SIMON-DACH KIEZ
SIMON-DACH KIEZ - ALTERNATIVE TO DO'S OFF THE BEATEN PATH
Friedrichshain is famous for its punk and alternative scene. Streets like Revaler Straße und Boxhagener Straße gave the area a reputation for drunk Erasmus students and low-budget tourists looking for cheap bars, bistros and clubs. But there is more than Asian fastfood, 24/7 mini supermarkets and lost party guests from the clubs around. Aurielle, vocalist of Berlin-based Electronic Duo Lalume loves her hood and gives you some secret tips how to experience her beloved Simon-Dach Kiez in style.
At the weekend there are two to do’s. First to do in the morning: Strolling around at flea market Boxhagener Platz and looking for some unique second-hand fashion pieces or old cult vinyls. Second to do: Having a coffee with friends or just read a book at coffee shop and bookstore Shakespeare & Sons on Warschauerstraße.
Thanks a lot Aurielle and Lalume for sharing with us your favorite places in your hood! :)
