Die Berlin-Uhr, auch Mengenlehreuhr genannt, ist eine öffentliche Uhr in Berlin. Sie wurde 1975 von dem Erfinder Dieter Binninger im Auftrag des Berliner Senats entwickelt und zeigt die Uhrzeit über eine Zahl von leuchtenden Lampen an.

 

Das Foto wurde, laut Kamera, um 11:26 aufgenommen, die Uhr zeigt aber 11:21 Uhr.

Danke an woni13 für die Erklärung.

Ich stehe auf dem Drachenberg mit einem Blick in Richtung Teufelsberg. Der Teufelsberg ist ein künstlicher Berg der durch Trümmer aus dem 2. Weltkrieg zusammengetragen wurde.

Der Teufelsberg ist eines der höchsten geografischen Erhebungen in Berlin mit ca. 120 m

Auf dem Teufelsberg steht eine nicht mehr genutzt Abhöranlage der NSA die besichtigt werden kann.

 

I stand on the Dragon Mountain with a view towards Devilmountain. The Devilmountain is an artificial mountain gathered by debris from World War II.

The Devilmountain is one of the highest geographical surveys in Berlin with about 120 m

On the Devilmountain there is a dishwasphery system of the NSA, which is no longer in use and can be visited.

Happy New Year to all of my friends!

Europe, Germany, Berlin, Marksburgerstrasse, Trabants (slightly cut)

 

Back to the Berlin travelogue. Last year we planned to visit Berlin again. But since travel in Covid times wasn’t (isn’t?) safe we didn’t. Perhaps this summer ;-) For now, it’s time for some more armchair travelling.

 

Ah, the Trabant... in a way it has become the symbol of the 1991 `Wende‘ (the fall of the Berlin Wall and the reunification of Germany).

In 1957 the little car was first marketed as P50, but this didn’t work well. So a real name was in order. If the Volkswagen brand hadn't existed, the East German (GDR) factory (the former DKW plant) would have chosen that name. Instead, they choose `Trabant‘. A smart choice of name. In English, it means mate or friend. The name is also related to 'Erdtrabant´ °satellite. The car had to show that the GDR was keeping up with the technological progress that delivered the first satellite in the Soviet Union in 1957

 

The Trabant became world-famous when the Berlin Wall fell in 1989. Long rows of East German Trabants crossed the German-German border in the months after it. In the years that followed, the Trabants gradually disappeared from the streets ‘- when Western cars became available to East German customers.

 

So the car had to evolve and as early as 1990, around 40,000 Trabant 1.1 units were built with the Volkswagen (!) Polo four-cylinder four-stroke engine. The 1.1 was not very popular because it was much more expensive than the two-stroke version. And people now strongly prefer to buy cars from the West. In spite of the modern engine, the 1.1 was still outdated and could not compete with Western brands. Most 1.1's were exported to Hungary. On April 30, 1991, the last Trabant left the production line in Zwickau. In 35 year the factory produced 2 million cars.

 

And the Trabant became even a stronger icon then it always has been - before the `Wende‘ it was number one the list of desirable consumer goods, and the two-stroke version even became a (partly `Ostalgie’ fed) cult object with its archaic spluttering 21 hp engine and `Duroplast‘ outer body. The use of Duroplast was by the way symbolic for the position of the GDR at the time: it was a plastic made from cotton fibres soaked in phenolic resin. The material was used because of a steel shortage due to a trade embargo by the West, and a surplus of cotton fibres from the Soviet Union. The phenolic resin was extracted from brown coal, which was amply available in the GDR.
