One aspect of a city that we are always fascinated by is the creative space. Many of the people and subjects covered by the alpine review are working on creative endeavours, using large eclectic spaces full of interesting people and projects, which makes studios, lofts and apartments doubly attractive for us. As Peter Bihr explained, Berlin has been a magnet for creators for years, but it still has its economic problems and thus remains quite inexpensive by European standards making an ideal condition for creative spaces to multiply. In this photo essay, we were very lucky to get the contribution of the Freunde von Freunden collective, and the bulk of the sequence is made up of our picks from their fantastic collection. We also include photos of some of our favourite coworking spaces in town; they are not only gorgeous but also inspiring settings to get some work done and get involved in a community. This collection is meant to showcase Berlin and give you a sense of its atmosphere that we so love.
