72 hours in Berlin

During June 2018 I spent three nights in the wonderful German City of Berlin. I had wanted to visit Berlin for a while and when the opportunity arose I jumped at the chance. I’d heard a lot of great things about Berlin. Everyone I’d spoken to who had been said what a great place it was (and how nice the beer was, which is a major bonus!).

As a travel photographer, I wanted to go there for the myriad of photographic opportunities Berlin would present me with and I also wanted to learn more about its history (good and bad). Most importantly for me from a touristic point of view, I wanted to visit some of the musical landmarks of artists I admire such as David Bowie, Iggy Pop and Depeche Mode.

During my 72 hours in Berlin I visited:

  • Friedrichstein
  • Urban Spree
  • East Side Gallery
  • Oberbaum Bridge
  • Potsdamer Platz
  • Memorial to the murdered Jews of Europe
  • Brandenburg Gate
  • Hansa Recording Studios
  • David Bowie and Iggy Pop’s flat that they shared in the 70’s (Haupstrasse 155 in Schöneberg)
  • Checkpoint Charlie
  • Topography of Terror
  • Hackescher Markt
  • Museum Island
  • I also used the Hop on Hop off sightseeing bus
