Citystay Travel Tips: Offbeat Berlin – Kastianalle 86
Eager to explore Berlin’s activism vibe? Head on over to Kastianalle 86, which is just a short u-bahn ride from the Citystay hostel!
Wandering Kastanienalle, you pass this intriguing building. If you speak German, the words Kapitalismus, zerstört, and tötet (Capitalism, destroys, kills) pique your interest. This is… home to a hausprojekt (house project), a communal apartment house that offers different living arrangements, social projects, and space for the Galerie Walden, a non-commercial art gallery. In recent years, the residents have campaigned against the house’s most recent owners’ proposed renovations, including the installation of central heating, that would lead to rent increases and alter the culture of their building.
