The Berlin hashtag on Instagram tops out at more than 31 million posts (August 2018)- and once we’ve filtered out the mirrored six pack shots, pensive models and famous people there’s at least a couple hundred thousand for the rest of us 😉

And if you haven’t been on a trip to Berlin then at least get a peak at it through a camera lens.

The City Framed With a Tree

Being a flat city by nature it’s hard to come by a good photo of the city from above, though this shot from someone’s plant-heavy balcony almost creates the idea there’s a hill to look down from.
