Berlin is always a highlight, whether in spring, summer or winter. And Instagram lets us follow the city in every season.

A new year’s just begun and one thing is already clear: We’re going to be experiencing Berlin in all its magnificent aspects again in 2016 and record what we see in photos we’ll share with you. Even if we don’t always manage to photograph every sunset ourselves, our Instagram account includes not only our own photos, but also the best shots taken by our community (#visit_berlin). We’ve put together a short look back at the past twelve months by picking the most beautiful, wonderful and popular images from 2015. All of the pictures are, of course, available on Instagram at @visit_berlin.

Kentucky, Paris, Lisbon. These are just a few stops on this globetrotter's journey, but only one city has been able to conquer her heart fully: Berlin, of course, because nowhere else can you cycle along a canal in the evening sun and swing over the rooftops where the Iron Curtain once divided the city. Exploring the city with open eyes: that's her mission for the blog.
