7 Picture Perfect Places in Berlin
A pinch of history, a bit of art, a sprinkle of taste and oh, so much fun soon to be captured in your Berlin photo album! This city gathers so many unique backgrounds for your upcoming pictures. Galleries, panoramas, mirrors, chocolate, authentic, dynamic settings, history and royalty – they’re all right here, in one single place. They’re so different and still they blend so well together.
Diversity is the keyword to this visual journey. Take good advantage and prepare yourself to say “cheese” over and over again.

Oh, and great news — you’ll need #nofilters!
East Side Gallery is my top favorite
This freedom memorial is located in the Eastern part of the city, giving you a 1316 meter long opportunity to take the best picture for your gallery.
Painted by 118 artists from 21 different countries, this open air gallery (the longest in the world, by the way) is the longest part of the Berlin Wall. Its paintings depict several political events that took place back in 1989 and 1990 and they’re awesome to snap for a great photo with an original, vibrant and meaningful backdrop.
TV Tower will give you the most broadcasted picture out there
This place is the most panoramic point you can find in the mighty German capital. Its 356 meter height is enough of a hint that the view over here will rock your camera’s display off.
Up in the sky, with plenty of Berlin behind you, there’s not more you can ask for for your soon-to-be profile picture. Here’s a piece of precious advice from my experience: try different angles all around the tower and immortalize as much as you can. As weird as this may sound, even when you’re having one of those bad hair days, I promise you that no one will notice!
Your high-in-the-sky picture will be liked, loved and favorited on every single social profile you own, so don’t overthink it!
Save the Reichstag for the last days of your trip
Not as high as the TV Tower, but trust me, the wow effect is guaranteed. This beautiful building seats the German parliament and mirrors the country’s history. First, let me tell you that the access here is free, with prior booking online. Cool, I know! So leave this for the last days of your trip, when your budget will be pretty tight after all the beer and currywurst recipes you’ve delighted yourself with.
There are two picture perfect creator candidates here: the terrace on the top of the building and the mirror cylinder in its center. The terrace will give you the opportunity to capture yourself with the Tiergarten breathtaking view behind, while the mirrors will create a minimalistic image of your multiplied and multi-shaped self.
