Joachim Ringelnatz in Westend – ein literarischer Spaziergang
The poet and painter Hans Gustav Bötticher, called Joachim Ringelnatz, spent the last four years of his life from 1930 to 1934 in Berlin with his wife Leonharda Pieper, affectionately christened "Muschelkalk" by him. His neighbourhood was the artists' colony around the former Sachsenplatz in Charlottenburg-Westend, where he was a neighbour of Max Schmeling and Anny Ondra. The literary walk leads to his home, across the garden monument Brixplatz, to his favourite pub at Steubenplatz and ends at his grave at the cemetery Heerstraße. Accompanied by his poems, we get on the trail of the Berlin Ringelnatz from Wurzen and drink to his health in the Westend-Klause.
