Destination Germany 30 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall: Berlin.
The images from Berlin of that moment when the Wall came down were seen all over the world. Today, 30 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the German capital is defined by a compelling mix of historic, cultural and creative milestones. @harimaolee went on a tour of the city and took some amazing photos en route. Isn’t it time you discovered Berlin?
On the night that the fall of the Wall was announced, locals from East and West Berlin joined in celebration on the Wall near Brandenburg Gate, Berlin’s most famous landmark, which during the Cold War had stood just beyond the border to East Germany. Today, the gate is back to its former glory and attracts visitors from around the world. A quick tip for taking photos: the best time to visit is early in the morning when the sun rises – now that really is an atmosphere worth capturing!
Berlin is always looking ahead to the future. Especially at the Futurium, where everything revolves around the question: how do we want to live in the future? There are plenty of interactive exhibits here where you can find out. And the building itself truly is a sight to behold.
Berlin is famous for its arts scene, which also finds expression in the street style. Definitely a destination for creatives!
There is a buzz of creativity that even runs through the masses out on the streets. This is a city full of dynamism, and you can almost feel the excitement in the air.
Yes, you’ve read that right. That’s what ‘Bierpinsel’, the name of this building, means in German. Constructed in the pop architecture style, the building was given the name due to its shape, which is reminiscent of a shaving brush. As it was built to house a restaurant, among other things, the name ‘Bierpinsel’ soon became widespread. Does that all make sense now? ;)
As you can tell from the ‘Bierpinsel’, Berlin is never anything less than colourful. With so many great photo opportunities at every turn, a city tour of Berlin is simply not to be missed.
