I am constantly amazed by the incredible effects that some people are able to create with a camera and editing techniques I could only dream of mastering. One of the most mind-blowing Berlin videos I have seen is Stainless, Alexanderplatz by Adam Magyar, a Hungarian photographer based in Berlin. Stainless, Alexanderplatz is a super slow […]
I can’t resist taking photos of the Fernsehturm in Berlin, especially on sunny days. This photo was taken as I walked under the TV tower from Alexanderplatz station in November after taking the shot featured in my Snapshot: Fernsehturm and Alexanderplatz Station post.
This photo was taken during a holiday in Berlin 2010 as I lay on my back on the cobblestones in front of Alexanderplatz station getting some very strange looks. Watching the sunset from the Fernsehturm was one of my highlights of 2012.
This photo of the Ferris Wheel near Alexanderplatz in Berlin, set up as part of the Berliner Weichnachtszeit Christmas Market, was taken from a spot near the base of the Fernsehturm, as the sun began to set on an autumn evening. Click here to see an image of the same Ferris Wheel at night.

In the background you can see the Rotes Rathaus (Red […]
A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to take a VIP trip up the Fernsehturm in Berlin’s Alexanderplatz and to make it even more special I got to watch the sunset form Berlin’s highest vantage point. I had been out for the afternoon with my friend Bine doing the Schnitzeljagd (Scavenger Hunt) around […]
I’ve been meaning to check out the view from the Sun Terrace of the Park Inn Hotel on Alexanderplatz since @SandyInBerlin tweeted a link to a post about it on Just Travelous. So when Luci from In A Berlin Minute was scouting a location for her next video last week I joined her. The Sun […]
The influence of Soviet-style architecture on DDR-era construction in East Berlin is plain to see on Karl-Marx-Allee, which runs from Alexanderplatz to Frankfurter Tor. Yesterday, I set out from home with no plan other than to make the most of the sun and get a bit of fresh air. I just wandered. And I ended […]
These two were having great fun handing out Free Hugs on Alexanderplatz in Berlin yesterday.
