As Berlin is a city of art, it is quite easy to find strange things, like this 12-metre-tall, fire spitting, metal Tannenbaum (en: Christmas Tree) in front of the Europa Center at Breitscheidplatz. The Tannenbaum, which blasts flames into the sky every 30 minutes, is named “Traffic Tree” and is Berlin’s newest attraction when it comes to Christmas trees.

The Kurfürstendamm received a fantastic birthday present, huge helium-filled fairytale creatures designed by the French artists’ group Plasticiens Volants, a fish, sea snakes, dragons, lizards, birds and a gigantic “Happy birthday, Ku’damm” hot air balloon with more than 40 French and Berlin-based artists in costumes or on stilts. From Halensee to Breitscheidplatz, tens of thousands celebrated this special open air theater.
