U2 Travelguide » Berlin » Die Möwe


Today the representation of the federal state of Saxony-Anhalt is found in Luisenstraße Number 18. But back in the days of the seperated Berlin, this was the location of "Die Möwe" (The Seagull), a club mainly frequented by artists. The name was taken from Anton Tschechow’s Drama. The building, known as „Bülowsches Palais“ (Palace of Bülow) had a moving history: it was used for instance as a hospital or even a house of pleasure. Director Anton Corbijn used it for interior shots for his One Video, when U2 was dressed up as women. The furniture was taken from the "Grüner Salon" (Green Lounge) of the Hansa Studios. The lounge was shut down soon after (which had nothing to do with lending the furniture for video shots!)
