When the sun hangs low in the sky and paints the city and nature in warm, golden hues, you know it’s evening in Berlin. This scene plays out daily – it’s not unusual. The sky comes alive in deep reds and pinks and always casts a spell on us with its special atmosphere. Whether you enjoy them with a glass of wine on a hill or grab your camera to take photos of Berlin’s landmarks, sunsets are fascinating and beautiful every day.

With this Collection, we take you to seven prime spots where you can enjoy the sun-drenched atmosphere. How about a walk to the popular Tempelhofer Feld for an after-work beer? Perhaps the infamous Brandenburg Gate or the Elsenbrücke bridge, backdropped by the TV Tower and the Molecule Man?

Outside of the capital’s gate, the landscapes are lonelier. The Lübarser Höhe in the north, the Dörferblick in the south and the Havelspitze in the west promise pure idyll. A trip to the Drachenberg peak is a must-see, too. On all of the hikes, the sun slowly and spectacularly melts into the horizon and hands over the landscape to the night, whisking away any stresses of the day.

    One of the most impressive sunset motifs offers you the view from the Elsenbrücke, which spans the Spree.

    It doesn't matter whether it's for a cozy barbecue evening at the weekend, a short-term after-work beer or a leisurely walk - the Tempelhofer Feld is simply an ingenious destination in the heart of the capital.

    An evening for two on a jetty that you share with a heron. The leisurely sloshing Havel spreads out in front of you, while the sun draws closer and closer to it. An idyll in perfection that you can enjoy in the western district of Spandau on the Havelspitze.

    Tourists love it and rightly so: The Brandenburg Gate is THE landmark of Berlin. And not only that! It is an incomparable photo opportunity when the sun shines through the arches in the evening and makes the surrounding buildings appear jet black. A walk along the Spree goes well with this absolutely

    Fuchur, Smaug, Fafnir, Grisu and whatever their names are – they would all feel at home on “their” mountain in Grunewald at sunset. From the Drachenberg, the fireball in the sky looks particularly impressive when it sinks bit by bit next to the no less legendary Teufelsberg. Ideal for impressive photo

    Admittedly, you shouldn't necessarily expect the classic northern lights in the Berlin area. But a fantastic sea of lights from a vantage point in the far north of the capital - the well-deserved reward for a long day of hiking.

    The largest lake in the capital spreads out in the southeast of Berlin. The Müggelsee is four and a half kilometers long, two and a half kilometers wide and with the view of its shimmering, seemingly endless water surface, the sunsets are stunning.
