Let’s be honest, a dancing bear is bound to get your attention. If you’ve been in Berlin over the last month or so you will have noticed the posters for Berlin Tanzt with a bear captured mid-leap in many of the U-Bahn stations. But when that bear appears in a video and is as tall […]
Having spent the afternoon in Neukölln the other week having a burger at Berlin Burger International and checking out the abandoned Children’s Hospital, I decided to make the most of ‘Golden Hour’ (the hour before sunset) and returned to the Parkdeck of the Neukölln Arcaden for a great free view of the Berlin skyline. I […]
I can’t resist taking photos of the Fernsehturm in Berlin, especially on sunny days. This photo was taken as I walked under the TV tower from Alexanderplatz station in November after taking the shot featured in my Snapshot: Fernsehturm and Alexanderplatz Station post.
This photo was taken during a holiday in Berlin 2010 as I lay on my back on the cobblestones in front of Alexanderplatz station getting some very strange looks. Watching the sunset from the Fernsehturm was one of my highlights of 2012.
The Fernsehturm is without doubt the most iconic building in Berlin and at 368m dominates the skyline. Naturally, as the tallest building in a flat city it affords wonderful views over Berlin, with one disappointment – you can’t see it when you’re inside it. There are other spectacular viewpoints in Berlin from which it can be seen […]
As I am launching a new series of posts, my Snapshots of Berlin, it seemed fitting to start with a photo of my favourite Berlin building, the Fernsehturm (TV Tower). The Ferris Wheel has been set up as part of the Christmas Market. This photo was taken from The Schlossplatz as the sun was setting and the […]
Anniversaries and Birthdays have always seemed to me to be a time for reflection and as I will be celebrating 1 year in Berlin tomorrow, this seems like the perfect time to reflect on what I have seen and done here. My original intention was that I would be able to create a Berlin Top […]
The 8th annual Berlin Festival of Lights is took place 10 – 21 October 2012. During the festival, a number of Berlin’s most famous landmarks and some lesser known buildings were transformed with light installations, laser animations and video projections. I started my tour of the Festival of Lights locations on Saturday in the Gendarmenmarkt, which I chose […]
A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to take a VIP trip up the Fernsehturm in Berlin’s Alexanderplatz and to make it even more special I got to watch the sunset form Berlin’s highest vantage point. I had been out for the afternoon with my friend Bine doing the Schnitzeljagd (Scavenger Hunt) around […]
I’ve been meaning to check out the view from the Sun Terrace of the Park Inn Hotel on Alexanderplatz since @SandyInBerlin tweeted a link to a post about it on Just Travelous. So when Luci from In A Berlin Minute was scouting a location for her next video last week I joined her. The Sun […]
