Großsiedlung / housing estate









Germany, Berlin, December 31, 2016

Today I went to a Großsiedlung in de western outskirts of Berlin. Most apartment blocks are sky high and are part of Berlin's social housing program. The majority of the buildings are rather new and looking fresh. Some of the older blocks start to look worn out.
Something strange happened today - no, not to me. At one of the stations the train stopped longer than usual. After some time they engine driver announced that there was a delay, because an old man was walking on the track with his rollator. After some ten minutes our journey was continued.
