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.
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.
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.
At the former borderline there are many white crosses with names. They should
remember the people who lost their lives while
trying to escape.
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.
Conclusion: Berlin is always worth for a visit!
