ENZIO GILJAM RECOMMENDS: PROJECT RADBAHN — TAKING THE U1 ON TWO WHEELS

ENZIO GILJAM RECOMMENDS: PROJECT RADBAHN — TAKING THE U1 ON TWO WHEELS

Did you know that multiple studies have found that cyclists are happier and healthier than people using other modes of transport? Well the happiness of Berlin cyclists is due to increase with the Radbahn Berlinproject. Started by non-profit organisation Paper Planes e.V, this initiative is set to transform the space under the U1 underground line into one long cycle lane. The dream: a cycle promenade with leisure and cultural amenities giving Berliners a hassle-free route between Kreuzberg and Charlottenburg. The project has already been awarded state funding for a detailed study and an initial 200m test run, so pump up those tires, tighten your brakes and get ready to rediscover the joy of cycling without restrictions. The project team have also released a book “Radbahn: Future Visions for the Ecomobile City” which sets out innovative solutions for a green and safe future of mobility in the city. With projects like this, the future looks bright for those of us born to ride on two wheels. (Text: Enzio Giljam / Photos: Paper Planes e.V., Radbahn Berlin & Reindeer Renderings, Radbahn Berlin)

PIECES OF BERLIN: COME FOR THE PHOTOS, STAY FOR THE STORIES

PIECES OF BERLIN: COME FOR THE PHOTOS, STAY FOR THE STORIES

Berliners, it is said, like complaining: if you find yourself griping about the U-bahn or the dog mess on the street, that’s when you know you are part of the city. There’s living proof of this in “Pieces of Berlin 2014–2018″, Florian Reischauer’s second book of street encounters, based on the blog of the same name. The book is about photography: Reischauer finds strangers on the street and takes their photo with his ropey old film camera; but while the photos are charming, it’s the stories alongside that hook you – stories that show Berliners have a lot to complain about. It is clear that their number one concern is the cost of housing, and that becomes the main subject of the book which tackles issues such as displacement, gentrification and loss of public space. If you are looking for intriguing snapshots of Berliners,"Pieces"has many. But it is also an honest attempt at discussing the problems the city faces. It’s not all doom and gloom, though: Berlin-born Tobby believes “everything is going to get cheaper again, once a different city is hip.” Here’s hoping…(Text: Benji Haughton / Photos: Pieces of Berlin)

Now, eight years later, we’re as passionate as ever and Cee Cee is now a studio with a whole team and a sister project: our agency Cee Cee Creative. We still share our discoveries, but we also create concepts, content and design – perhaps for you? Anyway: thank you for being our reader. Thanks to our community, our contributors and authors and our fantastic team. So, go enjoy the sunny Easter weekend, and if you want to share something with us – praise, criticism or your guest tip – then send us an email. We love emails ;)

SPIELPLATZGUIDE BERLIN — ENCHANTING PLAYGROUND TIPS FOR THE LITTLE ONES

SPIELPLATZGUIDE BERLIN — ENCHANTING PLAYGROUND TIPS FOR THE LITTLE ONES

If you’re like us and only have a vague knowledge of Berlin’s playgrounds, the Spielplatzguide is your friend. With concept and selections by Marianna Hillmer and Johannes Klaus, travel journalist Cindy Ruch has documented the best spots for children under the age of eight. These 192 delightfully designed pages cover everything from the best spots for splashing about to full-on adventure play. Rather than listing mere tips, Ruh writes the descriptions as mini stories, bringing swings and slides to life. Published in March 2019 by Berlin–based Reisedepeschen, this handy paperback is bound to get the children excited for a trip to the playground, and includes practical information like maps and age recommendations to help you plan. And since even the most imaginative child is unlikely to find a sand pie tasty, the book also features ice cream shops to keep everyone content. It’s a necessity for every contemporary parent.
