52 Stories #23: Köpenick's old town

"My favourite place is the old town of Köpenick. It reminds me of a beloved corner in Damascus." (Amer aus Köpenick)

"My favourite place is the old town of Köpenick because of its atmosphere and the charm of the small alleys and old buildings that remind me of my city of Old Damas. In summer, lots of people sit on the banks of the Spree River, which flows around the old town to form an idyllic island. I love it!" (Marwa aus Köpenick)

"My favourite place in Treptow-Köpenick is the "Altstadt Köpenick". It has so much authenticity. I love the bridges, the buildings, the castle, the lake, the sunsets, the streets, the restaurants and even the little stalls with delicious German street food. There are also international restaurants and cafés, e.g. for those craving Asian dishes. There is also a flea market and a farmers' market on a regular basis. Summer, autumn, spring, every season has its own beauty here! And now, during Advent and Christmas, it's even more beautiful with all the lights and decorations." (Neethu aus Köpenick)

We have collected the quotes for the Advent Calendar 2021.
