Old City of Nuremberg, Germany with Nuremberg Castle by night

Old City Nuremberg | Germany

Nuremberg, the second largest city in Bavaria, is known as the cultural and economic capital in Franconia and one of the most important cities in all of Germany. Because of its picturesque Old City with a great number of historic buildings, Nuremberg is always worth a visit. The picture was taken at the bottom of the famous Nuremberg Castle – its hall is visible in the background.

Café in the Government District | Berlin, Germany

The government quarter in Berlin is not only home to the most important institutions of Germany, like the Bundestag and the Federal Government, but also houses a number of different architectural masterpieces. Besides the Reichstag-building and the traditional Bellevue Palace you also find various futuristic buildings, which fit nicely into the cityscape.

View on the Bamberg Old Town Hall (Bamberger Rathaus) in Franconia at Night

The Best View | Bamberg, Germany

The Old Town of the university town Bamberg is the largest preserved historical city centre in Germany and is source of many myths and legends. Beside the impressive Bamberg Cathedral, the very famous „little Venice“ and all the small and crooked alleys, one of my favourite buildings is the Old Town Hall. But it is not just an ordinary Town Hall, as you find it in any other city, Bamberg’s Old Town Hall was built in the middle of the river Regnitz.

Berlin Cathedral and Television Tower at Alexanderplatz at night

Icons of Berlin | Germany

The Berlin Cathedral (Berliner Dom): To date, I have not met anyone who didn’t find it very aesthetic. By the way, this largest church of Berlin is a protestant, not catholic one. This fact comes as a surprise for most, but to me the age is more astonishing: Built from 1894 to 1905 the cathedral is just a little over 100 years old – pretty young for such kind of church.

Berlin Cathedral at Night under the Moonlight

Moonlight | Berlin, Germany

An important lesson in photography: The best camera is the one you have with you. The day before the “Supermoon”, I wanted to scout some location where I could take the best photos of said supermoon with Berliner background. I had found my position near the Oranienburger Strasse, and was satisfied. Therefore we just sat by the water, enjoying the view on the Berlin Cathedral with the moon just above it. Fortunately, Daria mentioned so often how beautiful the scene was, that I unpacked my equipment and took this one photo.

Bode-Museum in Berlin in Black and White

Bode-Museum | Black and White with Colour

The Bode Museum on the Museum Island in Berlin is in my opinion one of the most beautiful buildings in the city. Even though the Museum Island in Berlin was heavily affected by the war, the Bode Museum withstood it relatively good. Here you go with a black/white/orange version of my photo from the Bode-Museum in Berlin.

S-Bahn metro trains in front of the Berlin Skyline at sunset

Trains | Berlin, Germany

The S-Bahn and Berlin. More of a love-hate relationship than anything else. And if one metro scene is really typical for Berlin, then it’s the trains meandering through the city center. Just as you can see them in this image; approaching the center from the eastern part of the city.

Home Sweet Home | Berlin, Germany

It’s no secret that we love to travel and are often exploring the world. Yet, there is this one place where we are happy to come back to again and again. Especially after a long journey, things are often quite similar: First one evening on the couch, relaxing and arriving back home. But the very next day we often go out and have a look on “our” Lake Tegel. A wonderful constant which will be here forever, whenever we come back to Berlin.

German Chancellor Bungalow in Bonn

Chancellor’s Bungalow – Main Room | Bonn, Germany

Now this is how it looked like, the room of power and the heart of the German Government for 35 years until 1999. This is where the Chancellors like Willy Brandt, Helmut Schmidt, and Helmut Kohl lived and received international guests. It’s not hard to imagine the powerful people of politics sitting down in the lounge chairs discussing the fate of their people, is it?
