Looking for somewhere exotic yet familiar to travel to this summer? Well look no further than a city whose name you've probably heard of a dozen or so times before. The charm, vibrance, and uniqueness of Berlin will leave you feeling swept of your feet, with something to appeal to just about anyone.
I hadn't heard much about the city prior to my visit so was amazed on arrival in the old historic centre, built in the 1800s from stone after a huge fire destroyed the city. It was later further damaged during World War 2 and I was intrigued to see the mix of old and new throughout, with many additions and repairs made in the 70s.
As a parallel project to the 6th Marrakech Biennale, an 11-artist program called MB6 Street Art is bringing a series of murals scattered through the fortified 954-year old city upon second floor rooftops, larger multi-story walls abutting busy parking lots and a couple of elongated one story pieces in the narrow souk alleys that make this city magic and easy to get lost in.
