VILLA AUGUSTE — BEAUTIFULLY-APPOINTED COUNTRY HOUSE FOR TRANQUIL UCKERMARK HOLIDAYS

VILLA AUGUSTE — BEAUTIFULLY-APPOINTED COUNTRY HOUSE FOR TRANQUIL UCKERMARK HOLIDAYS

This is a place you wish your mom owned — or better yet, you owned. Surrounded by Uckermark nature and with absolutely no neighbors, Villa Auguste is the ideal weekend getaway for city dwellers in need of some R&R. In 2017 Daniela and Martin van Eickels found the run-down Victorian villa built around the turn of the century by chance and immediately fell in love. They teamed up with interior designer Anne Schütz and landscape designer Rainer Elstermann to create their dream vacation home. Now the time has come to enjoy the fruits of their labor. From the exterior and interior color selections to the beautiful tiles, wallpapers, brass hardware and vintage furniture, everything has been hand-selected with love and attention to detail. Entering via the peaceful conservatory, you are led to the English shaker-style kitchen that is equipped with a gorgeous French Lacanche range that will make any cook’s dreams come true.

The spacious yet cozy living-dining area is laden with casual elegance, melding rustic and modern beautifully. The villa offers four bedrooms – two en-suite – accommodating up to 10 guests. During the summer months you will find ripe grapes, apples and pears hanging in the massive garden, which is also home to hundreds of butterflies and bees that dance round the wondrous array of lilac and purple blooms. If you wish to venture out, guests have access to a nearby private beach at Sternhagen Lake and Gaia restaurant is just a stone’s throw away. This time it really is true: pictures don’t do justice to the beauty of this place.

FASHION INPUT FOR AUTUMN: NEW COLLECTIONS FROM 032C AND HIGHSNOBIETY

FASHION INPUT FOR AUTUMN: NEW COLLECTIONS FROM 032C AND HIGHSNOBIETY

Fashion Week is in full swing, with shows and events that offer a glimpse of the future of fashion. But if you’re looking for an outfit for the here and now, the new collection from magazine and fashion brand 032c might be worth a look in. The Maria ready-to-wear A/W 2021 collection brings mind-warping images of a chessboard to life with a selection of playful pieces. The silhouettes are diverse: sometimes the garments hug the models’ bodies, sometimes the cuts are almost boxy. Work jackets sit alongside evening dresses and sweatpants, with the familiar chequered pattern running like a thread through the whole line-up. Particularly striking is the (Un)Checked Mohair Sweater, whose “trompe-l’oeil” print takes the chess pattern and twists and contorts it.

Less dreamy but no less Berlin is the Berlin, Berlin 2 collection from media brand Highsnobiety which celebrates architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and his final modernist work, the Neue Nationalgalerie. After a complex restoration under architect David Chipperfield, the gallery reopened its doors this summer. To mark the occasion, this limited collection of embroidered vintage MA-1 jackets, baby blue caps and shirts with Nationalgalerie prints celebrates Mies van der Rohe’s work as well as key figures who have shaped Berlin. Among them is the late Keith Haring, and together with his foundation, the brand has created hoodies and T-shirts with special iconography featuring the likes of the Berlin Wall. If you have the budget, you should get hold of these clothes while you can: both collections are set to sell out quickly.

KRANICH MUSEUM & HOTEL: THE CHARMING HIDEAWAY IN A FORMER ESTATE IN HESSENBURG

KRANICH MUSEUM & HOTEL: THE CHARMING HIDEAWAY IN A FORMER ESTATE IN HESSENBURG

When art historian Bettina Klein, upon her return from a 20-year stay in Japan, fell in love with the run-down estate in Hessenburg (Ostsee), she had no idea how much work and patience would be required to bring the place back to life. Originally built in 1840 for an aristocratic family, the Kranich Museum & Hotel now stands quietly surrounded by old trees and fields where hundreds of cranes make a pit stop on their migratory route between Spain and Sweden two times a year. It was the cranes that gave Bettina hope, a symbol of luck in Japan—and luck she had. With the village authorities’ and community’s help together with Alex Schweder, a New York artist who coined the term “Performance Architecture”, the Kranich Museum & Hotel is one of a kind, a tasteful blend of the old and the new, layers of historical paints not hidden but thriving in the process of constant change and performance that is this building.

The museum and the hotel areas are integrated; bright and beautiful rooms are equipped with cast-iron stoves, while apartment suites on the top floor come with a modern kitchen. In addition to the eight rooms in the main building, there is a separately located garden house with two apartments. Since its opening in 2011, Bettina has also invited artists to participate in an Artist-in-residence program. The works created have either been added to the museum’s collection or adorn the walls of the hotel rooms that guests stay in. This year the artist is Japanese sound artist, DJane and music curator Mieko Suzuki. Kranich Museum & Hotel is the perfect location for a relaxing holiday a few hours away from home or for hosting a special event from weddings to family reunions, or immersing yourself in the history and art that surrounds you.

CALLING BERLIN’S GASTRO PROS: AN INVITATION TO LEAD THE DATA SPACE

CALLING BERLIN’S GASTRO PROS: AN INVITATION TO LEAD THE DATA SPACE

If you have spent time around Hackescher Markt, you may have come across the Data Space, a cool canteen that has been feeding Berlin’s tech pros and innovators since 2016. Now the owners are on the lookout for fresh talent and are calling on Berlin’s gastro creators to – literally – provide some food for thought by running the catering offer there. If you are in the food and beverage field and fancy fuelling bold ideas and digital exchange, this innovative location could be the ideal home for you. We’ve become fans of this lunch spot for its Mitte location which, although super central, is still peaceful with a secluded backyard location offering lots of outdoor space. Inside you will find plenty of room for your creative concept: a total of 400 sqm for meetings, conferences and presentations for up to 300 guests from the innovation and digital sectors. Your job will be to keep these technophiles and all the other busy people working around Hackescher Markt nourished and stimulated with tasty food and drink, from morning coffee and lunch nibbles to after-work drinks on the terrace. Berlin’s tech scene is renowned for being international, and so it will be your task to take guests on a journey of flavors and ingredients that will be served from the on-site kitchen. The intended result of this taste-based stimulation? Full stomachs, inspired minds and – who knows – maybe a fresh tech innovation…

ELECTRIC ESCAPES — WESHARE SUMMER TRIPS WITH ROUTES FOR FAMILIES, FOODIES AND CULTURE FANS

ELECTRIC ESCAPES — WESHARE SUMMER TRIPS WITH ROUTES FOR FAMILIES, FOODIES AND CULTURE FANS

Fancy a quick getaway? A nice idea maybe, but it’s easy to get stuck in the planning stage. If you are looking for an adventure that really is spontaneous, how about a trip for every mood and moment from WeShare? The car-sharing provider is currently the only one in Berlin (and also Hamburg) to offer exclusively electric cars, with a fleet that is charged with 100 percent green power. If you haven’t joined yet, simply download the app, register and drive off on one of four trips in and around Berlin. Spent way too much time at your desk and need an active break from the grind? Then the Active Trip, which includes a climbing course and a round of SUP, might be for you. If however you’re after some visual input, the Culture Trip might suit. The route scores with its varied programme, from art on fences to museum classics and a timeout in a forest living room.

Planning excursions can be particularly difficult for families, but as soon as you mention the word “pancake” the little ones are immediately on board. The Family Trip starts with just that: a delicious breakfast at Café Krone before you head out to the Mildenberg Brickworks Park. There, you can try out a fun bike on rails and discover the animal enclosure and adventure meadow. If you’ve still got energy, it’s time to hit the jungle playground where there is plenty to climb up, swing off and slide down. There’s also an ice cream pit-stop to be made at Gimme Gelato. Speaking of sweet stuff: how about an afternoon spent foraging (and eating) summer berries? The Brodowin eco-village, part of the Food Trip, lets you do just that. The day ends with a stop at Frea in Mitte, where you can have a zero-waste feast. Whichever trip you pick, all you have to do is download the WeShare app and you’ll be moving in a flash. After all, summer doesn’t last forever…
