    Now let me think ... didn't we have the discussion on here about whether it is on the border to "illegal" to photograph the Eiffeltower with its lights on at night because the person who set up these lights reserved all his rights to his art? I think there was a member around here who knew about that and said something like "so nowadays actually all night photos taken are illegally taken" or so? Anyone remembers?

    Which will not prevent thousands of photographers to take photos of the richly lit Eiffeltower at night ... if I ever got to Paris, I would do the VERY same! That is for SURE! How can the right to such a public site be reserved??? Ts!

    I like your Berlin-Photos.
    Have been to Berlin for only one afternoon and I cannot say I have been to any of the places that you photographed and are showing here. Have you come across my threads on Berlin then?

    There are issues with publishing night photos. You should be fine taking photos, it's just that the use of the images at night is restricted.
    From the Eiffel Tower site:

    Q : Is the publishing of a photo of the Eiffel Tower permitted?
    A : There are no restrictions on publishing a picture of the Tower by day. Photos taken at night when the lights are aglow are subjected to copyright laws, and fees for the right to publish must be paid to the SNTE.
