“We are a platform of ideas trying to be idealised.” – Klunker Kranich
Our last Study Visit was our beloved rooftop restaurant/club, Klunker Kranich! This particular organisation started first as a cultural cellar with a club, a scene for poetry slams and further cultural events. It got so successful and popular that eventually they decided to change its locale. Currently, it is housed on the roof of a mall in Neukölln and commands a gorgeous view of its surrounding city.
Klunker Kranich is separated into two parts: the Garden and the Restaurant/Bar/Club. The Garden is tended to by different groups and there is no fee when one wishes to visit it, the main Bar on the other hand is reachable only after paying a small entry fee. The whole operation is a constant work in progress with no end date manned by them and any volunteers that wish to assist them. They believe though that in about 2 years they will be finished with the infrastructure.
And this visit brought us to a lovely close of a lovely day. We hung around, we drank, we enjoyed the view and we fooled around!
