Interesting typographic places in Berlin?
0

Hi there,

Next week I am visiting Berlin. Any advice about interesting typographic places to know, to visit or to take pictures of?

Thanks in advance.

There's a thread about the Hauptbahnhof, including some pictures

Underground stations signs are interesting and vary quite a bit.

Everywhere! Here are some of my pics.

Stop by FontShop Germany for some free goodies.

Do not miss the Bauhaus museum. Small but important.

Uncover some vintage printed stuff at a flea market.

Spiekermann left Meta many years ago. He now runs SpiekermannPartners.

Thanks!
And... I am going stay in Berlin for 2 days. If a local want to go for beers and typographic chats, just contact me.

Which days?
Every 2 months the type geeks meet at the »Typo-Stammtisch« Berlin. Next week, on the 13th is another meeting.

You are welcome to the »Typo-Stammtisch« Berlin, Ramiro. Some people from FontShop, maybe Erik S. and other well known type designers will be there too.

Visit Tacheles Theatre

It's a converted old department store that now houses Art Studios and a few bars. I was there in March, and in the backyard they had huge letters you can sit on.

There will be two lectures in German language, but after them I am sure you can speak with the most of us in English.

That's the beauty of Berlin. All I know how to say in German is "I don't speak German" and I got along fine ;-)
