Roads to Berlin
Detours and Riddles in the Lands and History of Germany
Cees Nooteboom

Photographs by Simone Sassen
Translated by Laura Watkinson


Roads to Berlin maps the changing landscape of post-World-War-II Germany, from the period before the fall of the Berlin Wall to the present. Written and updated over the course of several decades, an eyewitness account of the pivotal events of 1989 gives way to a perceptive appreciation of its difficult passage to reunification.

Nooteboom's writings on politics, people, architecture, and culture are as digressive as they are eloquent; his innate curiosity takes him through the landscapes of Heine and Goethe, steeped in Romanticism and mythology, and to Germany's baroque cities. With an outsider’s objectivity he has crafted an intimate portrait of the country to its present day.
