The Berlin Skyline At Night: The view from the Neukölln Arcaden

The Berlin skyline at night from the roof of the parking garage of the Neukölln Arcaden

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.

      Thanks Georg. I had quite a few with the streak in them, including some where it seemed like a continuation of the lights on the Fernsehturm. A great effect but it was a little distracting so didn’t use those.

    Go up there before dark with some drinks or a snack and have a picnic. It’s nice to watch the city and even the sunset.

      A great idea Natalye, thanks. It’s starting to get to the point where it’ll be cold to hang around too long but it’ll be worth a few shivers for some good shots and a beer always makes waiting more bearable!
