The 7 Most Instagrammable Spots In Berlin

A trip to Berlin means you’re never far away from a photogenic spot to add to your Instagram – this edgy city has graffiti on every corner and has turned into one of Europe’s coolest destinations since the fall of the Berlin Wall in ’89.

Whether you’re more into kitschy Christmas markets or abandoned amusement parks, these 7 Instagrammable spots in Berlin need to be on your radar…

Berlin Instagram Spots

1. Berlin – Teufelsberg

Is this the most unusual place to visit in Berlin? An abandoned listening station from the Cold War has been turned into a guerrilla graffiti museum with views over the city from its giant dome.

2. Oberbaum Bridge & the Yellow Train

Berlin’s most beautiful and most photographed bridge is the two storied Oberbaum Bridge across the Spree. Wait for the yellow Subway train to pass over it for the best Insta shot.

3. Spreepark

An old East German amusement park flanked by the River Spree, Spreepark is a weird and wonderful part of Berlin’s communist past. Once closed to the public (and only accessible by breaking and entering!), guided tours are now available.

A Japanese-American cafe in Mitte, HOSMW has a gorgeous greenhouse aesthetic, soulful 60’s/70’s soundtrack and damn photogenic food.

5. Cafe am Neuen See

An oasis nestled inside the Tiergarten, this charming beer garden is the place to be when the weather is nice. Rent a rowing boat on the lake and soak in the picturesque setting.

6. Gendarmenmarkt Christmas Market

A Big 7 favourite, the Christmas market at Gendarmenmarkt is a riot of colour and festivity. There’s handcrafted decorations for sale, grilled meats and mulled wine and jugglers, fire-eaters, choirs and classical, jazz or Gospel music to keep you entertained.

7. S-Bhf Friedrichstraße

The perfect station in Berlin for getting those slick Instagram shots, the station at Friedrichstrasse has floor-to-ceiling windows that let sunlight stream in and dramatic walkways.

Trains come every four minutes, so be quick about taking the photo if you don’t want people rushing past you!
