Alexanderplatz Time-Lapse – In A Berlin Minute (Week 153)

Alexanderplatz is the bustling center of Mitte, the central neighborhood of Berlin (and formerly part of East Berlin). During week 7 of the web series In A Berlin Minute I already focused on Alexanderplatz (or Alex as it’s mostly called in Berlin) – but I thought it was about time that I gave you a sped up time-lapse view of this busy square.

For anyone in Berlin confused by the blue sky and sunshine: I shot this video already on March 5, when I also shot the “Brandenburg Gate Ride Time Lapse – In A Berlin Minute (Week 150)” – both on the GoPro.

The song “Honey Trap” by Jason Matherne (Goonygoogoo Productions) I just got today after already editing the video. Perfect timing because I think the fast song fits perfectly with the speedy pedestrians, trams and trains. By the way, he also sent me the song with vocals, which I really liked – but they were hitting a little too close to home and the instrumental seemed to fit better to the video.

  1. As always – love it Luci! The music is just right and a look at Alexanderplatz as a whole is interesting. You spend so much time there, but almost always just passing through. Especially the shots of the clock… is there any better spot for watching friends and strangers meet?

    • Thank you so much, Ebe! You really do see different things and the whole in a different way when you speed it up. My favorite discovery was the shadow of the TV tower moving across the Park Inn Hotel and, of course, the people around the clock. It’s tempting to publish a longer video of just that one World Clock shot. The man with the flowers was there for at least half an hour. As soon as he left, the girl in red showed up and looked around for someone she was supposed to meet. But to show her, I had to cut him short. Ah, 1-minute videos… so short.
      xx Luci
