The Eroticism of Fat Men
From Secret City Travel
It’s easy to overlook a nondescript apartment block wedged between restaurants on Charlottenburg’s Stuttgarter Platz, but peek through the entrance door and you’ll be treated to the sight of one of Berlin’s most opulent lobbies.
The building was once a very fine hotel, and this late 19th century confection astonishes with a wealth of multicoloured marble, carved wood, ceramics and flamboyant frescos. Presumably, the tiny balcony on the first-floor landing was used to greet guests – and no doubt, they were suitably impressed.
Stuttgarter Platz 20 / corner Windscheidstrasse, 10627 Berlin (note that the building is located between the restaurants Gasthaus Lenz and Pan Degli Angeli, each of which use the same address!)
