Top 5 Sights To Photograph In Berlin At Night.

Honestly, Berlin in winter is not one of the nicest cities in the world (therefore chose your hotel very wisely as I did too). It’s cold, dull, rundown in certain parts and a huge construction sight. It’s a grey city crammed with history and the chill of winter. At least until the sun sets, because then Berlin turns into a hip place with massive and striking buildings.

But just because of the points mentioned above, it doesn’t mean it’s not worth a visit! The 5 sights mentioned below were my personal favourite during our trip. Sure, most of them (actually all of them) are pretty obvious, but as said, Berlin’s landmarks can be pretty darn impressive during night…

1. Brandenburger Gate.

2. Berlin Cathedral.

Berlin Cathedral – Both during day and night, this structure is very impressive, yet the light installation during night makes it stand out even more.
3. Reichstag Building.

4. Reichstagskuppel.

Reichtagskuppel in Berlin – Definitely one of the highlights during our trip, but it took us two days to get in because when we first came, the Reichskuppel was closed due to bad weather.
5. Alexanderplatz.

    Thanks Nita – wow we’ve got a pretty similar name :)
    I have to say that the Brandenburger was pretty impressive at night. More impressive than during the day. And the Berlin Cathedral as well. Both those sights were my favourite to photograph.
