In November I went on a city break to Berlin with some old school friends. We only had a couple of days but managed to cram in culture and hedonism in fairly large measures – it seems Berlin is pretty good for both of these. First up is the gang outside Berlin Cathedral:

Next we have Brandenberg Gate. We just missed him, but new F1 world champ Sebastian Vettel had just had some kind of celebratory doughnut session right next door and had left his skid marks all over the place.

The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, or Holocaust Memorial, is a striking and somber reminder of the horrors of the Holocaust. It consists of a 19,000 square metre site covered with 2,711 concrete slabs arranged in a grid pattern. There is a museum underneath the memorial.

Next we headed to an exhibition about Hitler at the German Historic Museum. Here’s the equirectangular panorama. I made the planet from it using Mathmap. Reminiscent of the Great Court in the British Museum.


So that was Saturday afternoon. Saturday night we headed to Berghain, “quite possibly the current world capital of techno”. Highly recommended but strictly no cameras.
