The roof of the parking garage at the Neukölln Arcaden shopping centre may seem like an unlikely place to include in a ‘must-see Berlin‘ list but when you see the view of the Berlin skyline from there it starts to make sense.
This viewpoint features in the book ‘111 Orte in Berlin, Die Man Gesehen Haben Muss‘ (111 Places in Berlin You Have to See), an interesting book (though a struggle for me to understand with my poor German) with some unusual suggestions.
Having discovered the joys of night photography when capturing the spectacle of the Berlin Festival of Lights I jumped at the chance of a night-time photo walk with Digital Cosmonaut and suggested the Neukölln Arcaden.
I will certainly return to the roof of the Neukölln Arcaden to take more photos – it’s rare to find such a great view for free. It will be good to see how the skyline looks when the Fernsehturm isn’t lit up for the Festival of Lights and I’d also like to capture the scene in daylight.
