At the “Tatort” set

Bremen is not know for being a city where many movies are filmed. So it is always nice to have the Tatort-Crew in the city. Yesterday and today the team was shooting the latest episode of the german tv serries Tatort at the Bremer Rathaus.

Since I’m Bremen this week (;-) ) I considered this a good opportunity for making some photos of the “obere Rathaushalle” which is normally used for official representation means. Now the Tatort-Crew has taken over most parts of the building which is on the list of the UNESCO World Heritage Series.

Here are some of the pictures I took today around lunch time. Most of the people in the background were there standing at the tables for about three hours. The temperature in the hall was 25 degrees. In other words it was very hot. But the team and the actors where very nice and so several other reporters and I had the chance to make some good pictures.

Flying Ar.Drone in the park

One of my hobbies is to fly quadcopters like the Parrot AR.Drone.

I have to of them. One AR.Drone 1.0 and one AR.Drone 2.0. Flying these is normally a peace of cake. You can control them via iPhone or Android. I build an RC-Remote for the 1.0 Drone. So I can use a normal RC-Controller to fly it.

This time something is wrong with the AR.Drone 1.0 so I just can fly the 2.0. A friend of mine (Sebi) joined me this evening and we just did a little bit of flying at the “Wallanlagen” which are not far away from my home. Not much wind and temperatures of about 22 degrees are perfect for that. I did some high climbing with the drone.

You can see here some of the pictures I took with the on board cam as well with my camcorder.

Top of the Bamberger

Just a few years ago the once famous Bamberger-Building was reconstructed. It now has his tower back. The “Bamberger Kaufhaus” was famous in the early years of the last century and known for having the first escalator in Germany. And the building was the highest in Bremen. And the first high rise building at all in our city.

The Bamberger was bombed during world war two and the tower has not been rebuild till the early years of the 21st century. The whole story about the building and his former owner Julius Bamberger can be found at wikipedia.


Nowadays the VHS public school and a supermarket are situated in the building.

The top of the Bamberger is free to the public and has a wonderful view over the city. You can reach it by elevator. Just take the 9th floor. Here are some pictures I took today:
