Move to renationalise buildings follows protests over rising property prices in the city

The state of Berlin has bought back 670 apartments on the historic Karl-Marx-Allee from a private owner after decades of property privatisation in the German capital.

A 1950s prestige project for socialist East Germany, the grand boulevard that stretches from the city centre to Friedrichshain in the east has been the frontline of a months-long fight over gentrification and rising property prices.

Managers called tailors to London office as thousands of traders lost jobs

Deutsche Bank’s chief executive, Christian Sewing, has personally rebuked managers who ordered tailors to their London office as thousands of traders were let go on Monday.

“I can’t understand that someone would call tailors to fit suits on Monday. On the same day, we had to tell many colleagues in share trading that they had to leave,” Sewing told the German business daily Handelsblatt in its Friday edition.

German refuge tells tourists to microwave sleeping bags in effort to halt infestation

Remote Alpine mountain refuges are battling an infestation of bed bugs transferred from hut to hut by hikers in their luggage and sleeping bags.

The German Alpine Club on Friday introduced new guidelines to tackle the bugs, including asking guests to place luggage in special bags overnight to prevent them spreading.

One refuge has resorted to more extreme methods. The Münchner Haus, at a height of 2,964 metres on the Zugspitze mountain on the German Austrian border, requires hikers to microwave their sleeping bags on the way in to kill the bugs.

The problem is not new but has got worse over previous years, says the German Alpine Club.

“We have to do more to solve this problem, otherwise it just keeps getting bigger,” said spokesman Thomas Bucher on Thursday, adding that the main battle is to raise awareness of the infestation.

Mayor of German capital considering €365 annual ticket to reduce traffic and pollution

Berliners could pay as little as €1 a day to use public transport for a year under plans to wean the German capital off its cars and reduce air pollution, its mayor has announced.

“Step by step I want to follow the goal of introducing an annual public transport ticket for €365,” Michael Müller told Neue Zürcher Zeitung. An annual ticket normally costs €761.

Residents suffer rashes and breathing difficulties as warm weather brings infestation

Marauding caterpillars with toxic hairs have brought parts of Germany to a standstill, leading to closures of swimming pools, restaurants, public parks and sections of the motorway.

Oak processionary moth caterpillars, named after the nose-to-tail processions they form to travel between the oak trees they devour, have fine, long hairs with an irritating toxin that can cause blistering rashes, feverish dizzy spells and asthma attacks.
