The ICC exhibition center near the central bus station (ZOB) and the radio tower in Charlottenburg does not look like a very attractive photo location at first sight. The massive construction from the 1970s was considered one of the largest convention centers in the world. With its silver-gray aluminium façade, the whole area initially has a rather mysterious appearance. However, it is this gloomy atmosphere that makes the building so interesting for Berlin photographers. What initially looks inconspicuous is a multi-faceted place for taking pictures. When you look at the vacant building, you will recognize that the variety of photos is unlimited.
The building itself is very large and extends from one to the other side of the street. The building of the ICC is very winding and thus also offers a lot of space to discover. In addition to the Congress Center, however, the environment is also quite interesting for photographers: Whether the Berlin radio tower as one of Berlin's landmarks, the sculpture "Begegnungen" (encounters) in front of the east entrance of the building or the underpass, which allows access to the exhibition grounds – the photo options are endless. Especially the underpass with its orange columns is a famous photo motif. Even filmmakers such as those of the Hollywood blockbuster "The Hunger Games" have discovered the scenery.
It is worth taking some time to find your personal snapshot in one corner or the other at the ICC. The ICC and the surrounding area are an ideal setting for photos, especially in cloudy weather.
