Bürgerpark Pankow

Bürgerpark Pankow is wonderful garden a little bit north of Berlin-Mitte. Once a private garden in the 19th century it is now a "Garden for the Citizens" (Bürgerpark) with lots of roses and nice flower beds.

Berlin Cathedral and River Spree

The Berlin Cathedral (Berliner Dom) is a Protestant Church in the middle of historic Berlin. It's situated directly at the River Spree and on the right, that is where the city originally started to be (Nikolaiviertel). Today there are a lot of restaurants and cafés and a great place to sit, sip your coffee and enjoy the view.

Botanical Garden - House

The Botanical Garden in Berlin is always worth a visit. But I like spring most when everything is blooming and the leaves are green.
This is a house within the garden, part of the administration is in there, I think.

Ducks at Wandlitzsee

Another photo of the Wandlitzsee. Again the ducks were very photographer-friendly and just waited until I made my photos. Wandlitzsee is North of Berlin, just a few kilometres outside the city.

Dramatic weather at Wandlitzsee

I made a trip to the North of Berlin to Wandlitzsee. Due to the April weather the clouds were great. The duck swam several times into my view, obviously to make sure it is in the photo.

Bikini House and Waldorf Astoria Hotel

This picture was taken from the terrace of the newly renovated Bikini House. The Bikini House is the word's first Concept Mall (whatever that means) with a lot of interesting smaller shops. From the terrace you have a nice view onto Breitscheid-Platz with the Gedächtniskirche. And on the other side you can see into Berlin Zoo, watching pavians play.

In the background you see the Waldorf Astoria Hotel which was opened last year.
