This shopping mall, at the U-bahn station Gropius Passage is very close, where Christiane lived at the time when her problems with drugs started, the big buildings in from tof the mall are the ones that you cans ee in the initial scene of the movie
At the time she lived here close to the Wall, now it is more a place for immigrants from the middle east but it still has its original rebel and nonconformist characteristics, and it is still considered one of the most brilliant places in the city.
This luxury street with all its shops and restaurant at the time of the book was one of the major drug selling places of the city, where also Christiane was used to buy heroin. Now it's just a beautiful place.
This one now clean and safe was one of the places where they sold heroin at the time. There is not actually much to see now...
From Potsdamer platz go to the Potsdamer strasse where at the time of Christiane's teen ages she were used to sell herself to be able to buy heroin, the road and the nearby Genthiner Strasse were the places of baby drug addict pronstitutes of the time. In the Genthiner Strasse there also was the Sound Discoteque, where she was used to stay during the weekends, and which was infamous for the drug scene at the time
The cafe itself is absolutely innocent and completely foreign to the events, but Christiane and her friends went in the nearby to buy drugs in the Kurfuersterdamm
Like the cafe Kranzler the places is absolutely innocent and foreign to the events, but Christiane and her friends used to run through the shops and do some little vandalisms, and hide from the police in the nearby buildings
In this big shopping mall she and her friends were used to go there and steal from the women's toilets to collect some money to pay the drugs
Stegliz was famous at the time for its U-bahn stations where it was common to sell drugs
This is the district where Babsi (Babette), Christiane's best friend lived at the time, and she became famous (unfortunately) to become the youngest heroin victim of Germany, at the joung age of 14
At the local station, Bahnhof Zoo, was where Christiane and her friends were used to stay most of their time, at night and also during the say to sell themselves to collect the money to buy drugs, luckily the situation has changed and the place is now clean
