Translated caption: A picturesque piece of the capital [Berlin] - Köpenick and its fisher-village...Although there is only one, real fisherman left out of 31 small houses in the fishing village, many things remind us of the street's historical profession. In the pub, "Kietzer Krug" [Kietz or Kiez means a "settlement" usually of fishermen and often on an island. A "Krug" is a mug or stein.] many generations of thirsty fishermen drank their glass of beer after a successful catch, or took it home with them. Artifacts like the anchor, the life-saver (ring) or the orientiering lantern were important in the lives of the residents, and lend a nautical atmosphere to the decor of the "Kietzer Krug." Even today you can pick up your mug of beer to have with your Sunday roast.(...) Depicted place Berlin Date 20 October 1976 Photographer Sturm, Horst


This pub found itself on a street very near the confluence of the Dahme and the Spree rivers in Berlin. It was part of East Germany until reunification and now many of the quaint, fishermen's houses have been restored. Find out more about early life in eastern Germany.

"Zum Beitrag: Ein Malerwinkel der Hauptstadt - Köpenick und sein Fischerkietz. ADN-ZB Sturm-20.10.1976-ha. Obwohl es in den 31 Häuschen auf dem Köpenicker Fischerkietz nur noch einen echten Fischer gibt, erinnert vielen an traditionelles Gewerbe früherer Zeiten. Im "Kietzer Krug" haben schon viele Generationen durstiger Fischer nach erfolgreichem Fang ihr Gläschen Bier getrunken oder nach Hause mitgenommen. Utensilien, wie der Anker, der Rettungsring oder die Orientierungslampe spielten vormals im Leben der Kietzbewohner eine wichtige Rolle, so daß sie vor oder im "Kietzer Krug" stimmungsvolle Atmosphäre abgeben. Auch heute holt man noch seinen Krug Bier zum Sonntagsbraten. (Beachten Sie hierzu bitte auch R 1020-308, 309 + 311 - 313 N)"
