About Berlin Photography Walking Tour: East Meets West
Be encouraged and observe new viewpoints and other interesting details which might easily be overlooked in this great city of Berlin. The area is also a good place to watch and photograph street performers of every kind and at the end of the tour enjoy an overview of Berlin from top of the high rise buildings.
The tour starts after a 5 minute walk following the former borderline between East and West-Berlin where you will reach the Holocaust Memorial. This 19,000 square meter (4.7 acre) site reminds of the millions of murdered Jews during the Nazi era. For the skilled photographer it provides endless sights: 2711 stelas, narrow alleys surprisingly appearing and disappearing people in the labyrinth. Next to the Memorial you will come to Berlin's new city-center, the Potsdamer Platz. High rise architecture as its best.
The Sony-Center's roof construction looking like big sails from below and like Japan's Mount Fuji from the distance is an absolute must for all camera freaks. Restaurants serving the world's food and of course typical German and Berlin specialties.
Your Berlin Photography Walking Tour ends at Potsdamer Platz.
