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.
In times of Corona, our Tour suggestions are above all one thing – inspirations for hikes and bike Tours in the near future, when everyday restrictions are less strict. Please continue to stay healthy, protect yourselves and others. If our Tours lure you out into the fresh air, please continue to observe any social distance and hygiene rules. By the way, FFP2 masks are mandatory in the Berlin S-Bahn!
Next stop: Waßmannsdorf! The newly built S-Bahn station in the extreme south of Berlin is your starting point for a walk across the fields with a view of the capital's airport BER. To top it off, a fantastic sunset awaits you from the underrated view of the village. After all, the mountain is one of the highest elevations in Berlin. And they are known to be particularly suitable for worshipers of the evening sun!
One of the most impressive sunset motifs offers you the view from the Elsenbrücke, which spans the Spree. The Berlin skyline with the television tower that can be seen from afar, the Oberbaum Bridge and the famous Molecule Man is bathed in amber to deep red light at the golden hour. How about a nice walk before the highlight of the evening?

Whether for a cozy barbecue evening on the weekend, a short-term after-work beer or a leisurely stroll - the Tempelhofer Feld is simply an ingenious excursion destination in the heart of the capital. And when the sun slowly sets behind the former radar tower and the gigantic hangar, it becomes clear why so many Berliners and well-traveled people come here regularly.
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 classic sunset. And that's where we'll kidnap you with this tour.
Fuchur, Smaug, Fafnir, Grisu and whatever they are called - they would all feel right at home on "their" mountain in Grunewald at sunset. From the Drachenberg, the fireball in the sky looks particularly impressive when it goes down piece by piece next to the no less fabulous Teufelberg. Ideal for impressive photo opportunities or if you want to experience a particularly romantic evening high above the city.
