Explore Berlin by bike and follow David Bowie’s cycle path through the pop legend’s eyesFriday, October 13, 2017
I’d reached Bowie’s planetary system, while in the rusting gateway where he parked his bike, someone had scrawled, “David Bowie was here”.But there were bigger gates to fry, like Brandenburg. It was here in 1987 that Bowie played to a divided Berlin.James Briggs The home David Bowie and Iggy Pop shared in Berlin at 155 HaupstsrasseHe launched into Heroes and heard fans singing on both sides of the wall — it brought him to tears. A year after that, the wall fell and Heroes became the city’s unofficial anthem. I pedalled on, through hipster-heavy Kreuzberg. But this was thirsty work so I stopped for a leg loosener at the SO36 club — an infamous Seventies punk hangout where Bowie and Iggy thrashed and wailed.Today, punk was swapped for pullovers as wool-wearing urbanites sold leftfield cast-offs in a flea market.Next stop was the Brücke Museum. Here, our hero would admire the expressionist paintings. Erich Heckel’s Roquairol is aped for the Heroes album cover, while Otto Mueller’s Lovers Between Garden Walls was said to have inspired the song itself.But you can paint your own strokes as a Bowie bicyclist, like whooshing down the runways of the Templehof airport, now a public park, where he first landed, or carb-loading at KaDeWe, the department store where he bought the very best wurst.Hulton Archive - Getty David Bowie and Iggy Pop used to go out to the infamous Seventies punk hangout SO36But greatest hit of all is Hansa Studios, where Bowie wrote the single and recorded the album.There my tour guide, Thilo, pointed out a dull yellow apartment block. “That was where the Berlin Wall once stood and Bowie saw two lovers ‘kiss as though nothing could fall’.”Goosebumps — and not just from the biting air. I was still daydreaming when, with a gentle plink, the bike lock key broke. My look of horror prompted the Hansa caretaker to fetch a huge set of pliers, and with one snip cut through the lock.Which just goes to show?.?.?.?with industrial-strength bolt cutters we can all be Heroes, just for one day.James Briggs Hansa Studios is where David recorded Heroes, the song became the city's unofficial anthem the year the Berlin Wall came downGO: BerlinGETTING THERE: Fly from Gatwick to Berlin Schönefeld ...http://www.bing.com/news/apiclick.aspx?ref=FexRss&aid=&tid=46CEB2E1F37B4CD4AB227E34E4E3EA47&url=https%3a%2f%2fwww.thesun.co.uk%2ftravel%2f4584640%2fexplore-berlin-by-bike-and-follow-david-bowies-cycle-path-through-the-pop-legends-eyes%2f&c=17770073400475615655&mkt=en-us
