Berlin – what a city!

Berlin – the must-see city in Germany.  At the start of the month, Schatz and I spent three nights in Berlin, staying near the Friedrichstrasse train station.  Such an amazing city.  Three nights is not enough.  Realistically you need seven nights.

This was my third visit to Berlin.  Previous visits were Christmas 1992, then June 2003.  The major thing I’d noticed was that Berlin was looking less and less DDR-ish on each visit.  Even getting souvenirs with the DDR logo on them was much harder this time.  Even the DDR-era buildings were much less visible, except on Karl-Marx-Allee, liebe Genossen.

Go and see Checkpoint Charlie!

Go and see the Wannsee!

Go and see the Brandenburg Gate!

Have a touristic day, won’t you!
