Berlin with 3.4 million inhabitants is the capital of the Federal Republic of Germany and always worth for a very good trip. Since 2nd World War, Berlin was divided and after the collapse of the GDR, Berlin was declared in the Unification Treaty in 1990 to became the capital of the United Germany. The metropolis of Berlin is a cosmopolitan city of culture, politics, media, and science.

We were several times in Berlin. Once for a weekend, sometimes professionally, or for a workshop.
A must to see during a stay in Berlin is of course a visit to the government district, with the Bundestag and the Chancellery necessary . The Bundestag is located in the former Reichstag building. The glass dome of the Reichstag has become a much-visited attraction and is a symbol of Berlin. Unfortunately, you must take a longer waiting time for a visit.

Right next to the Reichstag, the Brandenburg Gate is located on the Pariserplatz. While the division of Berlin, the Brandenburg Gate stood in the restricted zone, between East and West.
Close by you can find all important embassies and the world famous Adlon Hotel.

Berlin has a good and low-priced public transport system, but you can reach most attractions also by foot. Only a few minutes from the central station there is the Holocaust Memorial and a little bit farer the Potsdamer Platz.

Unfortunately, we should had pay an entrance fee for the Berlin Cathedral on the Spree island.  We didn’t, because it is also very impressive from the outside.

The “Hackschen Höfe” are the largest enclosed courtyard area of Germany. Especially the cuisine is an attraction in itself.
Who like sweetness is in the “Ritter Sport's” flagship store, named "the colourful chocolate world", between Friedrichstraße and Gendarmenmarkt just very right. Opposite is the famous "Borchardt," it is the favourite restaurant of former Chancellor Schroeder and not cheap.

At the former borderline there are many white crosses with names. They should remember the people who lost their lives while trying to escape.
Berlin is also a city of waters, with many rivers, canals and watergates. A boat ride of one of the many waterways is very very nice.
Many boat tours pass sightseeings, like the Museum Island, with the Bode Museum. Next door, is the private Flat of Mrs. Merkel, the german chancellor. You can see it by the "inconspicuous" police men infront of the house.

One of the most beautiful places of Berlin is the “Gendarmenmarkt” with the German Cathedral and the French Cathedral and between the concert hall.

One of the traffic hubs of Berlin, is the “Alexander Platz”. There is also the "Red City Hall", the seat of the incumbent mayor of Berlin.  The television tower and the Nikolai district are nearby.
