So delightfully simple.
Geoffrey de Havilland created the Mosquito in the early 1940s. It was one of the fastest, highest-flying aircrafts in the Second World War. It was a fraction of the weight of the Lancaster bomber and was faster than a Spitfire. It was made out of plywood.

In 1910, at the age of 43, Frank Lloyd Wright traveled to Europe to present what would become his most beloved collection of structure illustrations: the Wasmuth Portfolio. One of these famous drawings was something Wright called 'Boathouse for the University of Wisconsin Boat Club.' Twenty years later, the architect included this same boathouse in an international exhibition of six of his greatest works. The boathouse idea was obviously a favorite of Wright’s, featuring design elements seen in other local treasures like the Martin House and the Larkin Building – large vertical piers supporting horizontal planes. Sadly, it was never constructed. It was one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s most significant projects that had never come to fruition – until now. Completed in 2007, the Rowing Boathouse is open to the public for tours and available for rent for special events and meetings.

Just imagine that it is the year 1978 and the Berlin Wall still exists.

Erich Honecker would be in power with his really existing Socialism. We warmly invite you to the OSTEL Hostel Berlin, to a journey back in time to the East Berlin of the seventies and eighties.
