Hmm, they're ugly in one sense, but still impressive! Alex is an interesting part of Berlin.

Keep up the pictures, I'm enjoying the journey.

You would(n't) have liked Karl-Marx-Allee then. Inhuman but very impressive in its way.

A walk around the recreated old town of Berlin, where the city started from. Some parts of it felt authentic but for the most part felt like it had been done on the cheap. Still plenty of space for expansion

No. The Kammergericht is in West Berlin (Wilmersdorf or Tempelhof): http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kammergericht
