Berlin is an El Dorado for shoppers who are looking for something unusual - for example, tours of upcycling shops. Here you'll find clothing and furniture made from used materials, and re-designed in exciting new ways.
Word is, Berlin has become the hipster mecca of Europe. Tamsin Walker has been on the trail of what, it turns out, is a more elusive and varied species than first meets the eye.
People buy pictures of communist leaders and postcards from Nazi Germany. Berlin's flea markets are a recycling center for German history, says columnist Gero Schliess.
Guys are changing and magazines are struggling to keep up. A new title in Germany wants to trade in machismo for meditation - but is still finding its manliness.
After four weeks of living without creating plastic trash, DW's Tamsin Walker was so caught up in it that she decided to keep going for another month. That time is now up too, so will she go plastic-free forever?
