Berlin, right next to the Brandenburger Tor and the new American Embassy:
Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe

Right you are! That didn't take long. Your turn.

Congrats to your current Avatar. Vermeer is one of my favorites. I´m looking for a nice print of the "Delfft" painting.

Anyway, I´ll be of to GE...

I wish there was more detail - not sure if there is a city on the coast or not.
Oh well, likely someone already has the answer, but is giving the rest of us some time to mull it over :P

Can we assume that north is to the top?

I thought it might be related to photography or imaging - like perhaps Kod(i)ak Alaska.

Perhaps another hint might help...

Seems I chose a harder one.

I´ll zoom out and provide another hint:

This place used to have a certain relation to Paris. North is in the top, btw.

EDIT: Sorry, the latest pic is a little bit skewed, I forgot to readjust before saving. It´s about 10° off in clockwise direction. The first pic is straight.

This is the eastern cape of El Hierro, also known as Ferro which was prime meridian just like Paris was before the 1884 meridian conference in Washington.

Correct!

Your turn, Crischan! Ferro was also supposed to be 20° west of paris & provide all of Europe with Eastern/positive latitudes. Didn´t work out that way...

Too easy...

Lago Traiano, the ancient Roman port at Fiumicino, near Rome. The airport is just off the northern edge of this image.
