We call this feeling "Heimatliebe", a strong word you'd never find in ze English language.

One curious thing I didn't observe while I was there in 2008 is that there wasn't as much snow as there is right now. Actually when it snowed (I arrived there in March) it didn't last until the afternoon.

Thanks for keeping me updated of my second home city.
Thanks.I didn't get further than Frankfurter Tor.I was too tired.But i liked it there.I was surprised that this area was so much cleaner than lets say Prenzlauer Berg where i stayed.I like Graffitti but it was overkill there

Snow and Ice I hate it since my visit in Berlin.

Yep, Berlin under snow looks a bit weird IMO, not bad, but in the summer it's so much more beautiful. I love Prenzlauer Berg, one of the most bustling districts in town. This is another nice thing in Berlin. You're in Prenzlauer Berg and it's all a mess and a lot of energy around, then you go to Schöneberg and it feels lazy, calm and civilized... further east in Hohenschönhausen it feels like you're in a strange and empty place. I love that!

The only nice thing of the US embassy is the entrance.Modern Art.


I walked 50km to find the friggin Lion Bridge in Tiergarten.I expected some more impressive.


German Museum of Technology.Unfortunately it was closed on my last day.


Graffiti everywhere.


World Time Clock on Alexanderplatz


Check the Checkpoint Charlie






If you're a an chocolate addict like me.Visit the Ritter Sport Store.You can create your own chocolate there.
