Does anyone know where the specific location is of one of the Anton Corbijn lithographs done for Achtung Baby? It's the lithograph with the pillars filled in with a wall, and Larry and Bono leaning against cars. I can't read what the street sign says in the lithograph on the band's website. Is the photograph at the walled-in Brandenburg Gate? Thanks, Andrew.

It's the Alte National Galerie near hackescher Markt/museum Insel. I was there last month, it's not really recognisable anymore as that location (but is well worth a visit)

It's definitely not the Brandenburg gate. The gate was never walled up, it was surrounded by the wall but it never looked like that

Hope that helps.

Thanks, briscotheque. I noticed later that the gate wasn't walled off, but I would have never been able to find out where the photo was taken.
