Are you in Berlin for a shoot but cannot decide where to make a video? We understand your struggle. Berlin has spectacular scenes, and they all are calling to be captured. All you need are the equipment and a video background editor to add the oomph factor to your work. Of all the locations available in the city, we will look at the best.

Alexanderplatz

Let us begin with the most obvious and city-centric locations in Berlin. Alexanderplatz is one of the most important and busiest locations in town. A hub for tourists and global cuisine, eateries are a stone’s throw away. This major crowd puller is located in the Mitte District. It includes a 365-meter television tower, which happens to be the highest construction in Berlin, the Alexa shopping mall, and the world time clock, to name a few. You will find a myriad of people here even at 2 am.

If you’re planning to stay in Berlin for a while longer, look for hostels around Alexanderplatz since it has both Ubanh and Sbahn connecting you to the rest of the city at any given hour.

Mauer Park

When Berlin was still divided, the park’s border strip was host to a portion of the Berlin Wall and was off-limits between 1961 and 1989. Post reunification, this no-man’s land soon turned into a favorite public park. It opened five years after the Wall fell and has since been popular among a diverse age group of Berliners. It is an ideal spot for family outings but also turns into a flea market during the weekends. The strip of the erstwhile Berlin wall has turned into an open canvas for the artsy folk and street artists.

If you’re looking for open ground under the sky and a place to shoot your videos, this is the place! It will make beautiful content for your AI video marketing projects.

Museum Island

Your video background in the museum island hits two birds with one stone. The first would be the island of museums itself. A cluster of 5 large museums built on the Spree River holds a large collection of art and historical artifacts that span across human civilization.

You will have to pay a minimal fee to get on the island, but it is a treasure trove for nerds who want to spend their time exploring the indoors and learn a school year’s worth of knowledge in one day. However, it is physically exhausting to cover all museums in one day. You can buy a three-day pass to visit the five museums as and when you please.

On to the second bird, that would be the Berlin Cathedral! Also located on the island, it happens to be one of Berlin’s major attractions and one of the oldest architectural structures built on the banks of the river Spree. If you intend to shoot external audio with your video, try to capture the Dome’s organ. It contains over 7000 pipes and is one of the largest in the whole country! Use a powerful engine like Videostudiopro to get the best audio with your video.

Brandenburg Gate

The Brandenburg Gate has stood the test of time and loyalty in the hearts of Berliners. For 30 years, it was divided down the middle and existed on both sides of the city. When the Wall broke and the city was reunited, this gate was at the backdrop for their jubilant celebration. What once stood divided is not a symbol of unity and peace.

Berlin is one of the few cities that have seen many hardships during their day and bear those scars with an elegant smile. It is no wonder why people flock to see the gate and the chariot once stolen and replaced onto the gate.

This is yet another place that does not charge you to gaze upon its past and yet provides you with postcard-perfect pictures. Once you are done capturing the location, you can pop into one of the many nearby cafes to use Cyberlink or Magisto for some good ol’ video editing.

Gärten der Welt

Discover new perspectives at the Gardens of the World! Located in the recreation park in Berlin’s eastern district Marzahn, this huge 250-acre location includes stunning gardens inspired from around the world. For a small price of 7 Euros, you can explore the entire 250 acres and also get on an IGA cable car! Berlin’s only cableway is a 1.6kms long gondola lift line crossing the districts Marzahn and Hellersdorf.

Among the many international gardens to shoot, you will also find water gardens, a maze, a labyrinth, and their major photogenic highlight, a mirror installation. Known as the reflecting gardens, you see your surroundings in a rare split-view manner. Photographers and videographers spend hours trying to create and encapsulate the light and shadow compositions and escape the concrete jungle for a while.

Conclusion

Berlin is one of those cities anyone dreams to visit. From the botanical gardens to the RAW-Gelände, the city has so much to offer to artists. The city inspires content creators and, despite its violent and destructive history, it is one of the most welcoming and warm places to tour and possibly live in. If you have more time, you could watch the swans in the city’s canals, check out the Zoo, spend an evening in the planetarium, and bargain your heart out at the flea markets.

The city offers you everything you need for your video content, while the tools help you share its vibrancy with the rest of the world. So what are you waiting for? Pack your bags, book your tickets and find your muse in the city of history and culture for the perfect video.
