Schloss Charlottenburg

Schloss Charlottenburg

View of Charlottenburg Palace on a mild summer evening at the blue hour, seen from Schloßstraße, after a visit to the Bröhan Museum. The sun has just set – the façade of Charlottenburg Palace almost blurs with the soft colors of the evening sky.

Chroriner Straße Garlands with flags in the Wind

Berlin Choriner Strasse 2024

This picture was taken during this year’s street festival. The street had just been freshly decorated with garlands of flags and we were lucky with the weather again this year. Last year we were literally standing in the rain – this year it was pretty perfect: not too warm, not too cool, a bit sunny, a bit cloudy. The street festival was accordingly crowded. Thank you!

Prater Construction SIte

Prater Berlin Prenzlauer Berg

Construction work has been going on at the Prater on Kastanienallee in Prenzlauer Berg for years. And for years, it felt like things weren’t really progressing. But now the construction work seems to be coming to an end – at least that’s my impression when I occasionally take a look at the building site. I can’t say whether this corresponds to the actual situation. We will see.

Of course, this picture does not really show the beer garden / the Pratergarten, but just the entrance area of the Prater area.
