At the end of September 2013, I visited Berlin for some days. As I always do, I kept my eyes open to discover a meander.
I found one on the wall of a temple in the Japanese garden in the gardens of the world in Marzahn-Hellersdorf. However, if one looks closely, one can see that unfortunately it is not a meander suitable for a labyrinth.
Nevertheless I made a find on the Kurfürstendamm in one of its exclusive shops, more exactly said at house number 26. A ritzy address. Here is an Apple store. Those days was the sales start of the new iPhone 5s and therefore a great crowd. This did not attract me so much, as I was fascinated by the row of meanders in the front of the building. And the meander was a wonderful one, because suitable to make a labyrinth from it.
The building with the imposing front belongs to the stylistic era of the historicism, also called the Gründerzeit.
What now is so fantastically in this meander? For me (and hopefully still to many others) the meander is the figure of a labyrinth in linear form.
