    • Brücke-Museum - art museum.
    • Dali - Die Ausstellung am Potsdamer Platz- exhibition of Dalis work.


    • U-Bahn stations and subway - each station is different, a new world in itself.
    • For underground photography, locations like Messe Nord/ICC or the subway stations in general are a good way to start (e.g. U Altstadt Spandau, U Paracelsus-Bad, U Heidelberger Platz).
    • tempelhofer feld - former airport, now park.
    • Viktoriapark top hill. Better to visit at the early morning
    • Explore Berlin's vibrant boroughs.
    • Teufelsberg - offers an amazing view across the city, here you are able to capture Berlin's entire landscape.
    • Kimchi Princess - Futuristic night-time photo spot (see our interview with KontrastKollectiv for evidence of this)
    • Spreepark
    • Districts like Kreuzberg, Neukölln or Friedrichshain are popular places for street photography.
    • For landscape photography visit more rural places like Spandau or Köpenick.
    • The area around the Bundestag is very futuristic and architecturally exciting whilst Berlin-Köpenick is closer to the "older Berlin".
