  Under den Linden at night
by Jarra

For more than 400 years, the avenue Under the Limes has been the the most famous avenue in Berlin. Originally used as the approach to the palace in 1575, it was the setting for great pomp and ceremony during reigns of the Prussian kings and the Kaisers. In their own times, the Nazis and the Communists recognized its symbolic value. As you walk along under the lime trees keep am eye out for former Soviet Embassy, the National Library, statue of Frederick II and the Palace of Wilhelm I.
