Get a shot of the ‘raw’ and ‘urban’ Berlin by photographing one of the pretty U-Bahn stations. We especially like Wedding, Alexanderplatz, Mierendorffplatz and Pankstrasse. You can buy a super cool book with all the most amazing U-bahn designs by Claudio Galamini here.

Alexanderplatz is in itself not very attractive and very touristy. But it offers you a great view of Berlin’s iconic TV Tower (Fernsehturm). It’s graphic shapes set against a blue grey sky make it very instagrammable spot on this list. The view over Berlin from the TV Tower is amazing as well.

A Boomerang, a video or an picture, they will all do justice to the most iconic traffic light in the world. Best part, if you get lost, it will tell you if you’re in the East or West part of town too! If you see this traffic light, you’re in the East part!
A visit to Berlin is not complete without at least one striking shot of the famous neoclassic Brandenburg Gate (Brandenburger Tor). The gateway to Unter den Linden and at the centre of many historical events. Adolf Hitler’s nazi regime parades passed the gate and Ronald Reagan’s ‘Tear Down This Wall’ speech took place here.
