A little throwback to a trip to Germany I took just over a year ago to visit my brother studying abroad in Berlin. I did get to travel around the country a bit and see so many gorgeous castles but I was also really impressed with Berlin. Stay tuned because I definitely have a list of my top coffee spots in Berlin as well. I was suuuuuper impressed with their specialty coffee culture.
Okay, back to the photo spots.
Overall, I spent around 4-5 days in Berlin alone so I had some time to venture around. If you’re interested in other European adventures I have them all here.
The East Side Gallery
Probably the most obvious answer but there are so many gorgeous murals miles down to choose from. Depending on when you go and what murals you choose (as some are more famous than others), you can get a good spot to take photos.
These are some of my favorites.
If I’m being honest I didn’t realize that this landmark was in Berlin until I arrived late at night from the airport, looked up, and saw this massive gate.
As this is a really popular landmark, getting a photo can be hard. This is why I decided to take a different angle and get down on the sidewalk. Genuinely a gorgeous site in person; it’s also really stunning all lit up at night.
The International Spy Museum
If I’m remembering correctly the admission price was kinda pricy but it was a very interesting museum. Lots of interactive portions and puzzles to solve. The lighting overall was pretty dark but they had cool backdrops.
They had this area where you could dress up in “spy clothes” and pick a backdrop.
I was feeling fancy so I even just picked a random wall! wooo!!
Like most European cities, the architecture really lines the streets. Pretty straight forward but it makes a decent photo opportunity.
Coffee Shops & Cafes
Like I mentioned earlier, I’m definitely going to dedicate a whole post to Berlin’s coffee culture but they are some super cute spots. This one (Bonanza coffee) had a cute little window spot.
In the short time I was in Berlin those are my favorite photo spots. I’m sure there are some great ones that I missed. Check back for more posts on my trips across Germany.
Have you been to Berlin?
Lots of love,
