Wandering around Berlin by night. The Festival of Lights was on which illuminated buildings, whilst some areas were being prepared for the Christmas markets.
At the Potsdamer Platz.
Illuminated bicycles outside the Haus der 100 Biere (House of the 100 beers).
A small remaining section of the Berlin wall along the Niederkirchnerstrasse. On the other side of the wall, there was formerly the SS and Gestapo HQs. Today, there is an open air museum called Topography of Terror.
Turning left onto Willhelmstrasse is todays Bundesfinanzministerium. The building is one of the few along this street in central Berlin that was not destroyed during WW2. Formerly, it was the site of Herman Goering’s Air Ministry for the Luftwaffe. After that, it was the site of the 17th June 1953 workers uprising in the DDR. A mural now commemorates this.
Towards Potsdamer Platz again is the Deutsche Bahn tower.
Nearby is the Stiftung Denkmal für die ermordeten Juden Europas. (Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe).
Onto the Brandenburg gate.
Through the gate and down Unter den Linden.
Statue of Frederick II of Prussia.
Under the Bebelblatz square, just off Unter den Linden, is a row of empty bookshelves, a memorial to the Nazi book burning ceremony on May 10th 1933.
The Fernsehturm against Marienkirche, just off Under den Linden.
