Photos of Berlin
Berlin is one of our favourite cities in Europe. Teeming with top museums and galleries, great places to eat and an amazing live music scene, Berlin is our type of city. We hope that these photos of Berlin and the famous quotes we’ve shared capture its wonderful essence. We took these photos when we were 1 week into our 18 month trip, check out our latest blogs to see if we’ve made progress on our photo taking!
The Berlin cathedral is a sight to behold. We had a great time eating our lunch on the lawn and ogling this beautiful building before we went in.
The Branderburg Gate – once the gate to the city, and today a sad symbol of the division of Berlin from Germany.
“The great seats of power tend to be wide and open, not vertical and soaring. Red Square, Tiananmen Square, the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin – all massive but with large open spaces that project an image of might” Gary Ross
These old east german cars made great vehicles to tour round the city. Although it was even nicer being on the outside and seeing the colourful procession down the street.
“Berlin is a city condemned forever to becoming and never to being.” – Karl Scheffler
The murals on the Berlin wall were incredibly inspiring and moving.
“It’s always the small people who change things. It’s never the politicians or the big guys. I mean, who pulled down the Berlin wall? It was all the people in the streets. The specialists didn’t have a clue the day before – Luc Besson“
Here it is – the secret park! Treptower Park. Well it’s not that secret but we were so surprised that it wasn’t mentioned in our guidebook. The place was practically deserted and we had it all to ourselves.
Last but not least – The Pergamon Museum. This is a must see! Even though the queue to get in can be off putting, it is definitely worth the wait!
“You are crazy, my child. You must go to Berlin.” – Franz von Suppe
“The fall of the Berlin Wall makes for nice pictures. But it all started in the shipyards” –
