Halloween in Berlin

So does Halloween affect the rest of the world outside of the U.S.? I have no idea, I think in Berlin Halloween is primarily used to make an extra buck at the store – you can buy pumpkins and all kind of gadgets and gear to dress up and have some fun…

I have not heard much about Halloween today, I only noticed that Radio Fritz aired a “Top 3 of creepy places” around Berlin.

The list is as follows:

  1. The subway station Kottbusser Tor.
    The anchor man noted that if you want your mother to not ever visit you again in Berlin, you should tell her to wait for you at Kottbusser Tor, and be half an hour late to pick her up. She’s gotta enjoy the company of drunks, heroin addicts and other splendid examples of society, drinking, fighting and just having one hell of a time!
  2. Reinickendorf
    Reinickendorf is a district of Berlin, which is uhm.. pretty far away from everything. And if you know despise Berlin’s local politicians, you probably know that Frank Steffel is living there. Ugh…
  3. Number 3…

Well actually I forgot number three! But that should be an easy one, what are some creepy places in the city that you know of? Please comment, send pictures – and try to be more creative than, “my kitchen”! ;-)

And if you are looking for more creepy Halloween posts on the Metroblogging network? Look no further!

    I was nearly trapped in Invaliden Friedhof this evening on my way home from work…with the clock change this weekend they now lock the gates with the earlier darkness…thinking of how tonight on Halloween the souls of the dead will walk among us, I was keeping a sharp eye out for any spirits drifting between the gravestones….
