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.
So here we go: We start our look back at the best photos of 2015 with this view of the Gendarmenmarkt in January:
We then move to this stunning view of an icy Tiergarten in February:
