The Buddy Bears Berlin


When you are in Berlin and wander the streets don’t be surprised when you see a Buddy Bear in various disguises.

They are so friendly and that people feel they must give them a hug. You can find them all over Berlin and if you are lucky enough you can even find one in your own national dress.

When we were there we encountered a few and took some pictures and here they are:

There are many, many more all over Berlin and I wish you good hunting when you are next time in Berlin. You can buy them too in a handy size for a not so handy price of 54 Euros.

  1. When you walk along somewhere in Berlin, you’re sure to come across some Buddy Bear. They’re really everywhere where people congregate. Some of them I find quite appealing. To pay 54 Euros for a little bear to take home? No, thank you. I can miss out on this.
    Thanks for publishing all these pictures. They’re nice to look at and remind me of our time in Berlin.

  2. dont laugh, but as a child i did not had a doll, a single one, i bought myself my first doll with my pocket money, thats why i just cant get over my obsession over dolls i guess, i just love them, not in my hands specifically but every where else 🙂

    i would have loved if someone had gifted me a teddy like that a couple of years back, but now my kitten will rip it to pieces, so i compensate by cuddling them whenver i feel like it- they are more fun then stuffed toys 🙂

  3. Thanks for your comment, Sharmishtha, of course those bears are only good to look at. They have certain associations, that’s all. A live animal, can give you something back.
