Here are the best instagram pictures we’ve received so far. Which is your favorite?
Wenn man in #Berlin ist, musst man zuerst das Brandenburger Tor besichtigen. Dort kann man die größe deutsche Geschichte mit der Familie, Freunde oder allein schätzen. Die Lichter stehen für die Herzlichkeit von den Deutschen. Es gibt keine Entschuldigungsgrund um das Tor nicht zu besuchen/genießen (und das bin ich im Bild). Alle die Touristen freuen sich immer darauf, wenn sie vor das Tor stehen. Danach musst man eine gute Currywurst wie ein typischer Berliner essen! #citberlin @younggermany
A visit to Rausch Schokoladenhaus is a must for chocolate lovers while in Berlin. Sip hot chocolate at Europe’s first chocolate restaurant, marvel at the enormous Berlin landmarks made out of chocolate and try some of the most mouth-watering chocolates of your life! #citberlin @younggermany

#WhenInBerlin You cannot miss this modern, Norman-Foster architectural masterpiece: the Reichstag’s dome. By booking a visit to Germany’s parliament, the Bundestag, you can access the roof terrace to appreciate this amazing glass dome that represents political transparency. Pick up a free audioguide to learn about the surrounding sights, the historic building and the workings at the parliament while moseying up the dome’s spiralling ramp. Because of the spectacular views over the city it offers, this place is a MUST when visiting the German capital #citberlin @younggermany
#Bernauer #Straße #citberlin This street in Berlin is an absolute must for me to visit, because its signifies the strength and perseverance of the average German person even in the mist of staunch adversity. Lives were changed overnight in this street. The pain in indescribable by the singular decision to divide Berlin. Now Berlin is known for it’s diversity and friendliness, because one has to look into the past to understand the present.

#citberlin I want to visit ALL the city, but if I had to choose my must is the wall; I love how art transforms our surroundings and a friend told me that if I liked Melbourne’s street art I would go absolutely crazy if I saw Berlin’s and I totally believe so, because Berlin is the city I have never been but still I’m in love with.

There are infinite corners in #Berlin that are worth to be visited, I even would dare to say every corner in Berlin is worth to be visited and has its own magical charm. Nevertheless, if I could be in Berlin just for one day, I would go to the #bauhausarchiv. This awesome place collects art pieces, documents, items and literature about the #Bauhaus Art school, one of the most influential architecture and design schools in the 20th century. One of the main objectives of the Bauhaus was to unify art, craft and technology. Therefore, the Bauhaus, among with its predecessor the Deutscher Werkbund, is considered as the beginning of #industrialdesign as a profession. Even when now the building that stands it’s very different from Gropius’ original, every piece of the archive (and to be honest its souvenir shop too) will give chills to any architect, designer or artist that visit it. #citberlin @younggermany #productdesign #industrialdesigner

Marie Elisabeth Lüders Haus. A masterpiece made of glass and concrete by Stephan Braunfels in 2003. Erected on the former path of the Berlin Wall and linked to the Paul Löbe Haus thanks to a bridge, the buildings symbolise the German unity. The pure lines of its architecture, the towering dimensions of the building and the perfect assembly of the materials makes it a jewel of the city and an inescapable place to visit #whileinBerlin. And you can also go for a run there. #citberlin @younggermany #archilovers #dasistberlin #regierungsviertel
