"BerlinThe might and scope of..." Germany Favorite Tip by karakal73

Germany General: 537 reviews and 478 photos


Favorite thing: Berlin
The might and scope of Prussian achievement is manifest in Berlin, one of the world's most fascinating and troubling cities. Of strategic importance since it first straddled the Spree River in the 13th century, Berlin never hogged centre stage quite like it did this century. This is the heart of Germany, its stoic beat echoing through grand public buildings, glorious museums and theatres, and its urbane restaurants and studied-cool nightclubs. Today, the city is the focus of the mammoth project of reunification and readings of Germany's mood are taken most accurately here.
