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.
And Herr Spiekermann has a studio there.
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.
And... I am going stay in Berlin for 2 days. If a local want to go for beers and typographic chats, just contact me.
Every 2 months the type geeks meet at the »Typo-Stammtisch« Berlin. Next week, on the 13th is another meeting.
Stephen, thanks for correcting me. I should have remembered that.
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.
Great! I am going to be in Berlin 12, 13 and 14 of july. And... how can I get to the »Typo-Stammtisch«?
The »Typo-Stammtisch« is held in this restaurant. You can have a look at the program here.

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 ;-)
What time is the meeting? I can not find the time in the sites...
Thank you very much for your visit. It was nice to got to know you. I hope you had fun and you understood our nice language … ;)
