The Telefunken Hochhaus at Ernst-Reuter-Platz in Berlin Charlottenburg. The highrise building has 22 floors and with its 80 meters it once was the highest building of Berlin, until the Europa-Center was built in 1965. The building was built as the headquarters of the company Telefunken. When Telefunken and AEG become one company in 1975, the building was acquired by the city of Berlin.
For the past decades most of the building was used by the Technical University TU Berlin.

Upstairs / inside the more or less freshly renovated Haus der Kulturen der Welt HKW.
The renovation work of the building was actually already completed in 2007 for the 50th anniversary of the original opening of HKW.

One day we took a boat from the Market Square to one of the islands around Helsinki and enjoyed this great view. Of course I took a couple of pictures. On this photo you see the Helsinki Cathedral, a.k.a. “The White Church” (Finnish: Helsingin tuomiokirkko, Suurkirkko; Swedish: Helsingfors domkyrka, Storkyrkan) and the central Market Square (Kauppatori in Finnish, Salutorget in Swedish) as seen from the Sea.

I took this photo when we were taking a boat from the market square to the islands around Helsinki. In the foreground you see the lively central Market Square – in the background the impressive Uspenski Cathedral. On the right side the iconic Stora Enso building by Alvar Aalto form 1962, also known as “The Sugar Cube” because of its exterior made of pure white Carrara marble.
One of my favourite Helsinki skyline views – to the skyline of Merihaka. The photo was basically shot in the middle of the night – a quarter to midnight to be exact.
A close-up photo of the Uspenski Cathedral in Helsinki, Uusimaa. The photo was taken from the backside of the Cathedral – either from Pormestarinrinne or Rahapajankatu. (Now that I’m trying to figure out what street it actually was I have to learn that it’s hard to tell, because they basically meet right behind the Cathedral.)
The fountain in front of the Orangery Palace at Sanssouci Park Potsdam is a popular photo opportunity – which makes it a bit difficult to take a photo here. There is basicalyy always somebody or some couple posing in front of you. But – when taking pictures one should probably not complain about people taking pictures.
