It's the eyecatcher of the fantastic and popular Deutsches Technikmuseum, south west of the city center:

Berlin is an amaaaazing city, I love it from the bottom of my heart, BUT the biggest downside is its weather - just horrible!

Biggest downside for me is, that half the things I'd like to see are under construction...always! Berlin is never finished.

Thanks very much for the awesome pictures, Benonie!

Thanks! We are used to that kind of weather and the many constructionsites proove that Berlin is a never ending story.

We take the S-Bahn 7 to the city of Potsdam:

Quote:
Potsdam is the capital city of the German federal state of Brandenburg and is part of the Metropolitan area of Berlin/Brandenburg. It is situated on the River Havel, 24 km southwest of Berlin city center.

Potsdam has several claims to national and international notability. In Germany, it has the status Windsor has in England. It was the residence of the Prussian kings until 1918. Around the city there are a series of interconnected lakes and unique cultural landscapes, in particular the parks and palaces of Sanssouci, the largest World Heritage Site in Germany. The Potsdam Conference, the major post-war conference between the victorious Allies, was held at another palace in the area, the Cecilienhof.
More information on Wikipedia.

No no, Berlin trams are still (BVG-)yellow (at least when they're not covered in advertisements).
The last pictures of trams are from Potsdam. These are not run by the BVG but by the Verkehrsbetrieb Potsdam GmbH.
They always had a different colour scheme. Well, at least since the reunification. Before they were orange like the Berlin trams:

Berlin:

Potsdam:

These were modernized after the reunification.

After refurbishment:

Newer tram models (built post GDR):

And the planned replacement for the Tatra (GDR) trams:

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Fi...tityberlin.jpg

The operating permit for the (modernized) Tatra trams is running out and the BVG doesn't want to modernize them a second time. So they're buying completely new trams.
Honestly, I'll be a bit sad when the Tatra vanishes from Berlin.

Thanks for the interesting information about Berlin and Potsdam-trams. I put it on the "Foreign tramways"-section of the BE-forum.

Benonie, did you think that Potsdam was overall a beautiful city, or was it more on the ugly side? Because Potsdam has very beutiful parts, but some very ugly commiblock parts as well.

And did you visit Sans Souci there? You surely have, right?

I loved Postdam!
You're right, the commieblocks at the edge gives it an old Eastern-Europe-feeling.
But the city-center was great and beautiful (like Trier... ) and Park Sans Souci just gorgeous!
