Sorry for the unparagraphed text – Wordpress seems a bit moody tonight, with all sorts of annoying faults. Like most technology, it’s highly erratic.
I’ve lost the plot a little over the last few days, during which the Ludwig Leo tour plans have altered slightly. Part 2 is now this coming Thursday, 12th May, starting promptly at 8.30 (in the morning, gulp).
Simplest to quote directly from Sven Eggers, the organisor, as below. If you’d like to join in, please contact him directly, details on his own site via the link.
“The Sporthalle Charlottenburg was the largest gymnasium in the 60ties and for a longer time the most modern construction in Berlin. It is completely in its original use and form.
The former kindergarden is probably the only structuralist building in Germany. It now is a daycare for seniors.
We will have access to every space.
After these visits there is the chance to see for example a great example of Prussian historicism, the townhall of Charlottenburg, or the Ernst-Reuter-Platz including the buildings of Hans Scharoun and Bernhard Hermkes.
We will meet the day after tomorrow, at the south entrance/exit of S-Bahnhof Jungfernheide (that’s Ringbahn S41, S42, U7 at 8:30 in the morning. Please be on time.
It’s a Deutsche Bahn station as well, so check you might get there in 2-3 minutes from Südkreuz, Hauptbahnhof, Potsdamer Platz, Gesundbrunnen etc. The Re4 comes from Wismar, Schwerin, Jüterbog.Several bus lines go there as well: M21, M27 X9, 109.

Hoping to make it along myself, but cafe business likely to intercede. So if you make it along and I don’t, take lots of nice pictures and tell me all about it in the pub sometime.
