Who knew Berlin was so photogenic? And that the Sony Center Berlin makes for such an attractive centerfold.
After a couple big ‘ol frosty steins of hefeweizen at a random restaurant in the centrally-located Potsdamer Platz neighborhood, I weave over to the Sony Center and take the best photos of the trip. I’ve found that a few drinks actually improves my:
- Speaking in public,
- Taking photos and
- Telephone interviewing for a job
Although there’s definitely a point of diminishing returns. Also worth noting, a cocktail or two tends to have a deleterious effect upon:
- Taking the SATs,
- Painting my nails and
- In-person interviewing for a job
The Sony Center Berlin is a futuristic building containing a mix of shops, restaurants, a conference centre, hotel rooms, rented suites and condominiums (I could see myself living here), offices, art and film museums, cinemas, an IMAX theater, a small version of Legoland, and a “Sony Style” store. If you’re sightseeing in Berlin and it’s a rainy day, this is the place to go.
SONY CENTER BERLIN MONEY SHOTS
1) View across the street from Sony Center Berlin:
2) Inside Sony Center Berlin.
3) Berlin Film and Television Museum (Deutsch Kinemathek Museum fur Film and Fernsehen). I didn’t really enjoy this museum all that much, but then I’m not a film buff. By the way, The Germans love their Marlene Dietrich.
