Marcel Krueger (1977)

About me
I’m a (travel) writer and blogger and my essays and stories have appeared in the Daily Telegraph, Reykjavik Grapevine and Süddeutsche Zeitung, amongst others.

I have also published my first book, a short story collection named ‘Stop Coming to My House’ last year.

I am a former Dublin Spotter and after six years in Ireland moved back to Berlin in early 2012, where I’m now eagerly snooping around to find out more about my new hometown.

I don’t like spiders.

Why do I love Berlin?
I got stuck in Berlin for two weeks in 2010 thanks to a certain ash cloud from Iceland, and even though I’m from Germany this was my first prolonged stay in the German capital and I was fascinated by the city.

Not so much by the clubs and bars (which I nevertheless tested in great detail), but the fact the Berlin is oozing history everywhere.

Even though it’s quite a young city by European standards, wherever you go you can find buildings and places linked to important events in recent history, may that be World War 2 or the Cold War. So when I got the offer to move here for my day job, I didn’t need to think twice.

Where can you find me online?
You can try my personal blog King of Pain, my Twitter or even like me on Facebook.
