Berlin is notorious for its numerous parks found throughout the city, making it a wonderful destination for the whole family. Some of the most famous parks in Berlin include Tiergarten, Monbijou Park, and Tempelhofer Feld. Most of Berlin’s most photogenic scenes are centrally located and can easily be accessed by foot or by a romantic horse and carriage ride if you so choose.
Many of Berlin’s most notorious destinations are even just a few footsteps away from one another, which is why most of Berlin’s tourists rarely leave the borough of Mitte. You can even manage to have your photo taken right beneath Berlin’s infamous Brandenburg Gate with Tiergarten or the borough of Mitte ornamenting the background. Later in the evening you can stroll along the Spree near Monbijou Park and catch an experience of Berlin’s booming nightlife in some of Berlin’s finest bars, where you can also carouse in a summer beach bar!
But before the evening approaches you cannot miss the opportunity of visiting Berlin’s world-famous Museum Island, which consists of five magnificent museums. Visiting all of the museums may take longer than a day, but to saunter through the island around the brilliant architecture is a must do. The first museum opened in 1830, but the island was officially finalized by 1930.
Couples, families and single individuals can have their photograph taken while lounging on one of the lush green lawns on the island with a stunning architectural background. While you may not be permitted to get married on this artistic landmark, you certainly can get engaged or celebrate an anniversary within its charming surroundings and have the entire experience cataloged by professional photographers.
Further down the Spree, you won’t be able to miss the Berlin Cathedral, unless you forget to look up that is. The cathedral is crowned with a sky blue monumental dome, towered by a golden cross and four surrounding tours. If you haven’t already photographed your way through Tiergarten’s endearing sculptures, ponds, freshwater lakes, and enormous zoo, then maybe you’ll still have the energy to walk around the Cathedral’s charming exterior. Then there is always the option to stop in one of the delicious cafes in the borough of Mitte. If you can resist some of Berlin’s best shopping and their famous absinthe shop, you can treat yourself to a midday coffee and chose from their rich cake selection as you sit outside and watch the tram ring by.
For a touch of romance, one can make their way to Berlin’s 18th-century square known as Gendarmenmarkt, also known as the most beautiful square north of the Alps. On Christmas, you can enjoy their celebrated Christmas Market with warm Glühwein and in the summer catch a Classic Open-Air orchestrated to the sunset.
During Berlin’s summer solstice season the sun sets especially late, giving you extra time to squeeze in a romantic terrace dinner before the show. And, finally, you will arrive to one of Berlin’s most historic buildings, The Reichstag. The building’s glass cupola lies right on top of the Parliament’s debating chamber where Germany’s future is being discussed right before your very eyes. You can also choose to relax on the large grass field in front of the building, have your experience photographed while simultaneously capturing this fascinating monumental building. And if you’re really lucky, you’ll snap Berlin’s famous vibrant pink dusk sky as an enchanting background throughout your journey.
