Discover your home town

I live in Berlin, a city which has a lot to offer. That's why I love to play tourist from time to time and discover hidden places. A few weeks ago, we made a walk through Köpenick, which is a disctrict in southern Berlin. This area has a lot of water, like the famous lake called "Müggelsee". So you see a lots of boats here, which make you fell like you're in holiday somewhere in Italy sometimes. It also has a lot of beautiful historic buildings and a palace. Fall gave us an amazing coloful autumn day, which turned the palace grounds into an almost mystical place.

There is one person, who made Köpenick very famous and this is the "Hauptmann von Köpenick" (captain of Köpenick). In 1906 he dressed himself up as an captain, although he was a shoemaker. He managed to get into the city hall, with some soldiers who believed that he was a real captain, and robbed the city treasures. This made him famous here in Germany and there is a statue of him in front of the city hall.

In the pictures you can spot one of my hat designs, which are available through etsy (or dawanda). It is made from the same fabric as my Gertie coat. The suitcase was a flea market find of my boyfriend, who also took all of these great photos.

Sincerely yours,
