Klunkerkranich Re-Opening https://www.facebook.com/klunkernderkranich
With the weather being surprisingly sunny and mild for this time of year, some of Berlin’s popular outdoor spaces have decided to open their doors a little earlier in the year than usual. One such venue is the very popular rooftop bar of Klunkerkranich. Take in the amazing view from the top level of the Neukoelln Arcaden carpark and listen to some tunes or stroll the regular weekend fleamarket at this amazing location.
