Yesterday on my way back from the Freie Universität I took the S-Bahn and went to pick up some snacks in the mall for my journey to Düsseldorf. I also picked up some rice beers, since I finally found a brand that I really like. It’s dark rice beer, gluten free and produced in Germany. If I want to take the S-Bahn on the way back from uni I have to change at Heidelberger Platz, which is where this picture was taken. All the pillars in the station had an animal like this as decoration. I didn’t look at all of them, but I at least saw a bird, a fish and a beaver apart from this bat. It’s such a dark and atmospheric station in general, really cool! A lot of the stations on the U3 line seem interesting from what I see from the train. I guess at some point I will get off at these stops and check them out properly, especially since I’m planning to go to university more regularly now.

  1. It seems when I was in Berlin I lost so many things…next time I’ll take with me a list with the interesting places you are showing us 🙂

    • Such a sweet little bat, right? In those old stations I wouldn’t be surprised if there were real bats around. Although … they probably would find the trains very confusing …
