Berlin has a wealth of museums. Fans of photography will not leave the city disappointed – especially this month. Until November 25, many museums, galleries, and public buildings are displaying photographic exhibitions within the framework of the European Month of Photography, now in its fifth year in Berlin.

When sorting through the multitude of offerings, you can use the EMoP website to search for all free exhibitionsthematically by topics such as voyeurism, structures, identities, or Berlin itself; or, if you know which part of the city you’ll be exploring, geographically.

Here are three locations in Berlin where photography lovers can always find something to please the eye, with links to their respective special exhibitions for EMoP:
