Rynek Market Square and City Hall in Wroclaw, Poland at night

Sounds of Wroclaw | Poland

Wrocław has one of the biggest market squares in Europe and its city hall is the biggest one in Poland. Late at night the city wraps itself in silence and is only disturbed now and again by the hushed voices of people returning home from a night out. I wanted to capture the intriguing atmosphere of this place, but also show as much as possible of this very beautiful market square painted in the crisp autumn light at night.

Basilica–Cathedral of Our Lady of the Pillar in Zaragoza

Postcard from Zaragoza | Spain

Zaragoza turned out to be the positive surprise of our trip to Spain. Many spacious squares, ideal conditions for photography and very interesting architecture. Moreover, the buildings were illuminated throughout all night and long in the morning, while tourists were nowhere to be found at this time. An absolute Dream!

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.

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.

Semperoper Opera House in Dresden exterior

Semperoper | Dresden, Germany

The Semperoper is probably the most famous opera house in Germany. The reason however, is quite different as one might expect: The Radeberger Group – Germany’s largest brewery group – uses the Opera House for many years in the background of the advertisements for the Radeberger beer. Even if I try to resist any advertising as much as possible, I must admit that it immediately came to my mind as I stood there.
