My Visit to Berlin Lomography Gallery and Store

1

In my recent trip to Berlin, I visited the Lomography Store in Berlin. Here, I'll show you how the visit was and tell you all of its cool things!

Located in Friedrichstraße 133, one of the main streets of the city. The store and gallery is located near the Museum Island, one of the most emblematic areas. It’s near Tacheles. For those who do not know it, it’s an old building in ruins since the war, which was once a Nazi prison. After the fall of the wall, it was occupied by artists, which have used it as an exhibition and culture centre, with different exposures and activities. Tacheles has become a symbol in the capital and a must to see.

So, in the city center (or MITE, as the German people say) I found the Lomography Gallery Store, the most beautiful Lomography store that I have visited at the moment. With about 200 square meters of brightly-lit space, you can find there all Lomography products (and touch them, and try them all! I went straight to the LC-A and Lubitel as it was inevitable to go for them!). You can also have a look all the books, both on shelves and in the sofa area of the store.

At the time of the visit, they had on display the latest Lomography product: the La Sardina! The area was designed as a fish market. And the truth is that having it in my hands, it’s more fun and appetizing! :)

But, one of the most important things of the store is its lomowall, the biggest in Germany. Shocking and fascinating at the same time, you could spend time staring at it all day!

In addition, the store regularly holds workshops of all kinds and different parties for the presentation of products! The sofa area is so nice, you can relax and have a look at any Lomography book! And the store is so cozy that I had to come back to buy Fisheye Lens for the Diana F+!

And I have to talk about the store employees; they were very friendly and allowed me to photograph the entire store for this article, even posing for a photo! Thank you guys! :)

So, if you decide to visit the city, be sure to stop here and have a look! I think that the site of the shop makes it perfect and it’s now one of my favorites! ;)

Berlin Lomography Gallery & Store is located at number 133 on Friedrichstraße.

It was my first return visit in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In part two of my journey log, I'm going to show you the pictures I took with my Lomography cameras.
