Webcams are a way to be close to Berlin, even if you are far away. The cameras on Berlin.de offer panoramic views of the RBB television centre and Berlin City Hall. Unfortunately, the cameras at Hackescher Markt and Alexanderplatz are currently not activated.
The camera on the tower of the Rotes Rathaus (Red City Hall) can be swivelled and shows different sections of the city again and again in the course of a day - e.g. the Berlin Cathedral and parts of Spandauer Straße.
