Street Scenes of Berlin During the 1920s Through Amazing Photos

The Golden Twenties was a vibrant period in the history of Berlin, Germany, Europe and the world in general. After the Greater Berlin Act the city became the third largest municipality in the world and experienced its heyday as a major world city.

Berlin in the 1920s

Berlin was known for its leadership roles in science, the humanities, music, film, higher education, government, diplomacy, industries and military affairs.

Berlin in the 1920s also proved to be a haven for English writers such as W. H. Auden, Stephen Spender and Christopher Isherwood, who wrote a series of ‘Berlin novels’, inspiring the play I Am a Camera, which was later adapted into a musical, Cabaret, and an Academy Award winning film of the same name. Spender’s semi-autobiographical novel The Temple evokes the attitude and atmosphere of the time.

Take a look at these amazing photos from janwillemsen to see what Berlin looked like during the 1920s.
