great shots and lots of additions.
I had a chance to visit this city in mid 80's when it was still divided
and you can get in the Reichstag anytime, anyday and without ID.
I love this city.

I love Berliner Dom, I've visited Berlin together with my German friends back in the late 90's, it is a nice city. We also checked the Alexanderplatz, back then it was a bit of a rundown place, I'm sure it has improved now.

nice extensive coverage.
I enjoyed looking at those beautiful shots specifically the eastside
as I barely saw one before.
the modern buildings are simply designed but nice.
thanks though for sharing them.

I bet, he means the swastika shaped one... In this view you actually can't really see it.

Well, I suppose he means that... Somewhere here on Skyscrapers there already was that discussion about this building. I find it pretty far fetched too.

What´s even more funny about that is that the synagogue is located
further up that street just above it to the left in that pic!
