Berlin is Germany's modern capital city, a fascinating European metropolis with a dramatic history in which contemporary architecture merges with the imposing character of a centuries-old city. The Nokolai Quarter was built by the DDR government as a sort of old town, a European Disneyland for the city's seven hundred and fiftieth anniversary, a popular area with 'new' mediaeval buildings that display various guilds and stone statues that surround the city's oldest church..We travel to nearby Potsdam, a city of castles and gardens and with an old town that features a lively market atmosphere. When the monarchy settled there so did their armies and with them came craftsmen, merchants and artists from many countries. The castle-like Nauener Gate leads to the Russian colony of Alexandrowka and then to Belvedere on the Pfingst-Berg. Returning to Berlin we embark on a trip at the Eastern Train Station on the Panorama S-Bahn whose carriages are equipped with large panoramic windows and marvellous views turn the journey intoa wonderful adventure. The Olympia Stadium is still a gigantic and remarkable sight and for the eleventh Olympic Games in 1936 the Third Reich spared no expense. A new city has emerged from its historic past, Berlin, a young metropolis of the third millennium that is increasingly becoming the centre of Europe. This metropolis with a heart is always worth a visit!

Martin Schultz (Jorg Schuttauf) was a citizen of East Germany when he was convicted of manslaughter in July of 1989. Martin is released in the year 2001, and he discovers the Berlin he knew is a thing of the past, with East and West Germans free to travel back and forth as they please, the dividing wall a thing of the past, and the city unfamiliar after over a decade of new construction. Martin tries to start his life over again with his former wife Manuela (Julia Jager) and son Rokko (Robin Becker), but they seem nearly as foreign as Berlin's new terrain, and Manuela's new lover advises Martin to keep his distance.

Advantages: Germany's capital and most interesting city Disadvantages: a bit too large, distances too long
I've been to four Berlins in my life: when in my mother's womb I was in Berlin, then the capital of the Third Reich, from the GDR (German Democratic Republic), where we later lived, I visited Berlin once in the 1950s, a much smaller city then (only the Soviet sector), but still a capital, the capital of the GDR.
After fleeing to West Germany I visited West Berlin, not a capital any more...

Review of Berlin (Germany)
...It is one of my life's ambitions to visit all the capital cities of Europe so I was thrilled when my parents said we could go to Berlin. Berlin is the Capital City of Germany and is located in the north-eastern part of the country.
We stayed in Berlin for four nights. That may not sound like a long time but we managed to cram an awful lot of exploring into our time there! I will go through...

Of all stations there are very good traffic connections with s and underground to the centre and to all urban areas which the hotel could possibly be.
Of course one comes also by car to Berlin. One...
