My hometown… I was born in West Berlin in 1987 in Rudow, a part of Neukölln. After coming back from Spain, we moved to Charlottenburg, then I moved to Reinickendorf, Tempelhof, Prenzlauer Berg, Steglitz and now I’m back in Prenzlauer Berg. As you see I have spent time living in multiple part of the city both east and west Berlin. I can’t really tell which part of the city I do like most, they are very diverse and have their pro and cons. In general, most of Berlin is chaotic and dirty but also has some nice architecture and also nature spread throughout the city. You can definitely tell, that I do have a love hate relationship with this city. Each time I compare it to the places I have been to mostly the dirt and hectic as well as the unfriendly people remind me that I’m home… But still I do have most of my friends and family in Berlin which always brings me back. In summer the parks and lakes can lend a welcomed shade while enjoying the fresh air. In winter its almost never covered in snow and even if it snows it converts into mud. I would definitely consider to move away one day, but so far, I haven’t found a place which makes me want to leave in the long-term. Anyway, due to my routes I would always come back to this big city if at least for a longer visit every know and then. For everyone that hasn’t been to Berlin so far, go! It is a beautiful city where just a weekend is definitely not enough! The following pictures are just a very small extract about what Berlin is an where you should go to. I did not include all the tourist spots because if you google it you will find them anyway but the places I really like to see and visit or that are so picturesque that I do take a picture almost each time I pass by. I hope you enjoy to look at Berlin through my eyes. If you do have any questions and are planning to visit Berlin soon. Feel free to ask, as a local I might be able to help. Till then, enjoy my photographs.
