Day 15 - Berlin

We changed accommodation this morning and are now ensconced in a very nice apartment in the east part of the city, not far from Checkpoint Charlie.  We walked quite a distance from our new abode to join the tour which lasted 4 hours and while we covered a lot of ground we'd done in the coach over the last couple of days, we found it helped to orient ourselves.

The New Synagogue at Oranienburger Strasse 

Berlin Cathedral
Museum of Natural History
Unter den Linden to Brandenburg Gate

Brick line in road where Berlin Wall used to run
Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe
Mural depicting Socialist ideal of contented citizens facing a bright future as one big happy family on
 Nazi Air Ministry Building

Berlin Concert Hall
We have been impressed with all the tree lining the major roads.  Another thing we have noticed is how many people commute by bicycle (with very few helmets to be seen).
