Fabulous that you will visit Stockholm! While undoubtedly you will find many cool and original looks in the trendy SĂ¶dermalm, don’t discount young-ish Swedish business men, many here have quite a flair and you might notice that checked shirts are popular. Good luck!
How great that you are coming to Munich – that’s my hometown! I moved out of Munich 4 years ago though and we are living now at the Ammersee, that’s 50mins by train from Munich downtown. The famous monestary Andechs can be reached by a nice hike trough the woods in about 45mins from Herrsching and there are ships crusing on the lake :) Where will you be in Munich for taking pictures? Downtown is great as well as Schwabing. Haidhausen also as some funny people and the Glockenbach-Viertel(lots of trendy youngsters and gay people). Do you already know which hotel you will stay at?

be sure not to miss our lovely kreuzberg when coming to berlin! schlesische straĂźe would be a great place to look out for some stylish people. the area around kottbusser tor subway station gives a good idea of the many contrasts clashing in our city: punks, homeless people, hipsters, turkish grandmas, wanna-be-gangstas – all crowded at one spot: a rough atmosphere, but somehow inspiring.
I am looking almost every day at your blog and I love it. Thanks for all the beautiful pictures. I am now really looking for the pictures you will take in Germany and particularly in Berlin. Let us know in which Vanity Fair issue you will be published so that we can buy it ;-) Message coming from a french girl living in Berlin.
i dunno exactly when you’ll be in berlin but be aware that on may 1st, there is something like a tame scheduled riot in kreuzberg. during the day this could make for some fabulous pictures as at that time, it’s more like a massive block party. at night though, id suggest clearing out a good hour before sundown, as it’s possible you or your cameras could get damaged by an errant cobblestone or cherry bomb.
and i second what the previous poster said. kottbusser tor, schlesische str., and nearby goerlitzer park.
sooooo much lookin forward to your photos from Germany! I guess my favorite pics will be the ones from Berlin, such a city of style, but hoping to see good pics from KĂ¶ln and Hamburg too! I am a great fan of your blog keep this great work up ! Hope you meet nice people on your tour, and wish you a good jurney!
You should forget Germany (well, except Berlin maybe) and concentrate more to Scandinavia if you want to find people who wear something else than what has been in the Boss Spring Summer catalog. The young adults in scandinavian capitals are creating a style of their own.
Stockholm, Copenhagen and Helsinki are all inevitably the cities where street-fashion trends come from nowadays. Italians sure know how to be stylish, but you can’t sense the future trends when walking in the streets of Milan. In these Scandinavian capitals however…well, you’ll see ;).
