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|
|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).
