If you have ever been to Berlin, you are probably familiar with this view: a rather typical photo of a cobblestone street somewhere in Berlin Mitte. This pattern may look beautiful – but riding your bicycle on this kind of street can be difficult, especially when the streets are wet. Also, cars drivin on cobblestone streets are slightly more noisy – but at least everybody seems to drive a bit mre careful, since the nobody wants to ruin their bumpers.

You can also find this image in the stock photo section right here.

Sitting in a friend’s courtyard somewhere in the middle of nowhere – basically right in the center of Berlin Mitte. We were have a very small birthday party with Grill and Beer – Berlin style. Nice.

Berlin TV Tower, beautiful skies

Berlin TV Tower, beautiful skies

View from Schönhauser Allee / Schwedter Strasse down to Mitte – looking towards the TV Tower. On this particular Sunday evening the skies were particularly beautiful, all colors – the sunset coloring the clouds in mellow yellow, orange and light blue.

Please feel free to like to photo over here on instagram.

Hazy Bell Tower

The bell tower of Zionskirche in Berlin Mitte on a foggy but sunny day in February. The photo is taken from Swinemünder Strasse near Arkonaplatz. The trees in Swinemünder Strasse have no leafs yet – of course – it’s February. But sunny. And nice.

You can find (and like) the photo on instagram right here.

A big LOVE as seen on a wall right next to the rails in Reinhardtstraße in Berlin-Mitte. Berlin loves you. Approved.

The photo may look like a collage, but it is actually only one photo. You can also find it here on my instagram account.

The Berlin TV Tower on a cold but beautiful day, as seen from Veteranenstrasse near Zionskirchplatz in Berlin Mitte.

In the foreground you can see a typical East Berlin street lamp and the cables of the Tram hanging above the street crossing of Veteranenstrasse / Fehrbelliner Strasse.

Zions­kirche Church in Mitte

Around sunset – view from Kastanienallee / Zionskirchstrasse to the church Zions­kirche in Mitte. The silhouette looks great against the yellow, orange and blue skies – the sunset almost looks as if the skies were on fire.

French Cathedral / Französischer Dom

French Cathedral / Französischer Dom

A HDR image of the French Cathedral at Gendarmenmarkt as seen from its backside on a sunny day.

In German the French Cathedral is called Französischer Dom – the term is German for “French Cathedral”, but in this case (as also in the case of the Berlin Dome and the German Dome) the term refers to the French word for English “dome” and not to a cathedral. Neither church on Gendarmenmarkt was ever the church of a bishop.
