Berlin: Germany's Capital


The Best of Berlin, from Above

New Entert...

The German capital Berlin was arguably the most important city in the world in the 20th century.  It was the capital of Germany when the country plunged into World Wars I-II, and was considered (in divided form) the most likely flash point for a World War III which (fortunately) did not occur.  Berlin is now the capital of a country which is one of the pillars of international peace and stability.  Here is a magnificent aerial tour of the great city on the Elbe, complements of New Entertainment Pictures.

The Magnificent Bavarian Alps


German Alps Shot For The First Time: Berchtesgadener Land


The area of the Alps Mountains located in southern Germany is often called the Bavarian Alps.  It is home to some of the most amazing natural scenery in Germany (indeed, in all of Europe), as well as its highest mountain peak: Mt. Zugspitze, which stands at just under 3k meters (around 9.7k ft.).  In this video, contributor  BashirAbuShakra used a drone to create an aerial tour of this landscape including footage of  Berchtesgadener, St. Bartholomä, Jenner, Lake Obersee, Hintersee, and more.

Behold this amazing aerial video of Neuschwanstein, one of the world's most famous castles.  This Romanesque Revival masterpiece was completed in 1886 as a retreat for the then-King of Bavaria, a kingdom which had recently become part of the German Empire.  Famously, the castle inspired the Sleeping Beauty castles at the Disney theme parks.  It's also served as a shooting location for numerous feature movies, notably as Baron Bomburst's castle in the 1968 hit musical comedy Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
