View to the Berlin TV Tower from Schönhauser Allee / Schwedter Strasse on a lazy Sunday afternoon in early October. So far October was surprisingly mild.

But since there are a few venues and shops near Moritzplatz today, it has become more and more lively down here.

Another photo of the church Zionskirche in Berlin Mitte near Prenzlauer Berg / Kastanienallee.
