How quickly things change. Just weeks ago Berlin was a bustling capital, a city of culture and hedonism that never slept. Today, as the global coronavirus pandemic spreads, Berlin is in cultural lockdown: galleries, museums, bars, clubs, gyms, cinemas, schools and restaurants must all remain closed until further notice, and residents are advised to stay home. Events with more than 50 participants have been banned.
The streets might be empty, but solidarity remains. We bring you the latest snapshots of a deserted city as Berliners heed public health advice and stay indoors.
