  • Berlin... Germany´s capital city and one of Europe´s leading cultural metropolises has an impressive history. Most people will associate it with the Berlin Wall and the hotspot during the Cold War, but Berlin is more then "just" that...

    In my "Berlin Editions" I would like to show you different aspects of this beatiful city and promote my place of residence. Here we go with "Edition I"...
  • The Brandenburg Gate (Brandenburger Tor) - probably the most recognizable tourist attraction in Berlin. It´s a symbol for the breakdown of the Cold War era and the reunification of the German nation as well.
  • There is a place in Berlin, where you can still see and visit the former Berlin Wall - it´s the famous East Side Gallery.
  • How about enjoying the city´s skyline while sunset? No problem, just climb up the Teufelsberg hill and have an outlook like this...
  • The Park Inn Hotel at Alexanderplatz.
  • The Unter den Linden street was an representative axis and connected the Berlin City Palace (Stadtschloss) with the Brandenburg Gate and the Tiergarten forrest in the 19th century. Although the palace was torn down, Unter den Linden still is a nice place to promenade.
  • Berlin-Tegel Airport (EDDT / TXL). In the 1960s this airport became West Berlin´s international gateway and is still in use.
  • The Kurfürstendamm alley, known mostly as "Ku´damm", is a representative shopping mile near the Hardenbergplatz (City West) and the zoological garden.
  • The German Church (Deutscher Dom) is situated at Gendarmenmarkt square in the city centre.
  • Former US listening station on top of the Teufelsberg hill.
  • The Oberbaumbrücke bridge connects the former West Berlin area (to the left) with the former East Berlin area. In the neighborhood you can find the East Side Gallery (see figure 2). The TV tower is located at Alexanderplatz.
  • There will be more pictures of this inspiring city in further "Berlin Editions"... So long!
