Berlin Special: Autumn in green metropolis

Autumn in Berlin is mostly grey and wet. The colors of the leaves bring some welcome change and when the sun comes out, Berlin offers some most beautiful going places, which you should not miss. In this entry Charlottenburg Castle and the Teufelsberg are presented.

Over the last time lots of reports and pictures of the Alps in autumn colors could be found here. Now it is time for a little round-up from Berlin. The autumn in Berlin is mostly grey and wet, as the winter is. The summer time is certainly the more beautiful time in this city. Still, Berlin is a place with lots of parks and green areas, so you find the autumn colors as well, like in the forests and on the mountains of Austria.

This is the castle 'Schloß Charlottenburg' which was built to honor the Prussian Queen Sophie Charlotte. It's a beautiful and stunning place, together with 'Schloß Sanssouci' in Potsdam. The autumn still is over the city and the last colorful leaves are still on the trees. Glad that I made it to depict that, the whole forest looks like a colorful landscape #travel_magazine #GreatestTravels #EarthMagazine #earthpix #natureaddict #ig_masterpiece #AOV #igrecommend #ig_latinoamerica_ #ig_all_americas #igmasters #master_shots #exklusive_shot #special_shots #ig_mood #theunderrated #superhubs #super_germany #hot_shotz #elite_shotz #ig_captures #ig_today #ig_cosmopolitan #Europe_Gallery #transfer_visions #tv_travel #zamanidurdur #diestadtberlin @diestadtberlin #berlinthroughmyeyes @berlinerpost

Schloss Charlottenburg (Charlottenburg Palace) is a beautiful place and every season offers another point of view. In autumn, the many alleys in the park – which is still free of charge – and in Schloss Strasse, leading towards the castle, are colored in yellow from the Tilia trees. Those trees produce an awesome smell in spring, with pale green, new leaves. They offer shadow in summer and in autumn they draw a colorful component into you photos. You should visit the palace, when you got time to do so. In winter, starting from Advent, a great christmas market takes place on the grounds in front of the main building. It’s a beautiful christmas market and besides hot wine you get treats, souvenirs and good food. And if you are first time visitor to this palace, make sure to take the tour. The description, of what you can see, is linked above.

This is the view over Berlin‘s biggest forest, the Grunewald. You will have a great overview from Teufelsberg, a hill built of debris after WW II, today a green oasis with top notch views over the whole city, predominantly former West-Berlin, but at night or when the sight is clear, even deep into former East-Berlin. You will see all the main sights of the city sticking out, a skyline per excellence. The depicted view is towards Wannsee and on the right you can see the Grunewaldturm. This is a classical November depiction, if you are lucky and the sun comes through. It’s certainly beautiful, when it does.

And this is a forest closeup taken with a 50 – 200 mm objective. It shows the autumn colors in detail. Attached you find the obligatory gallery, with many more pictures of Berlin‘s autumn. Expect another Special later today about the re-unification of Germany, 25 years ago and for next week an entry about the street art you can find on Teufelsberg.
