The scene was a birthday party held in Saarbrücken – a town close to Germany’s border with France which boasts one of the largest brothels in Europe. One of the guests was Peter Marx, the general secretary of Germany’s far-right, racist National Democratic Party (NPD). He was photographed alongside two scantily clad women waving sparklers. A striptease artist  performed while a birthday cake in the shape of a penis was cut up.

They are nicknamed “Späti” which sounds like Spaytee and they are radically altering the German capital’s shopping habits. Späti is an abbreviation for Spätkauf or “late shop”. In 2006 – and pretty “late” compared to other European capitals – Berlin liberalised  Draconian laws which once made it impossible to shop after six in the evening and saw to it that Sunday trading remained strictly verboten (forbidden). Nowadays it’s legal to keep small shops open round the clock. The upshot is that a Berlin without its Spätis now seems unimaginable.
