Sunday stop in Westhafen

I wanted to visit Westhafen for a very long time but I succeeded only yesterday, running up and down across the city, looking to take the full advantage of the wonderful weather - followed by a storm, but still a wonderful weather. 

One of the main reasons for my curiosity was to observe the industrial architecture, old and new styles, as an interpretation of the change taking place in the history of trade since 1900 - when the port was fully established - until today. It wasn't possible to visit the port so I took a tour around and tried to understand the spirit of the place. 

The transportation to and from it's relatively easy, as you have U-Bahn, S-Bahn and buses relatively rapid.  Bayern factory is having its Berlin headquarters here, and many of the old buildings are getting a new colorful face. 

As everywhere in Berlin, you'll find enough traces of green and parks, many local restaurants and movie theaters. Maybe it is not the most wanted place to be in the city, but given the dynamics of the city, you'll never know when you'll read for one month in the newspapers that Moabit/Westhafen is the hottest location in the city. 

This is the reason why we've been there before and took some pics for our readers.
