Great start to this page already.

You had fantastic light on your fernsehturm-stay. Cool deep urban feeling.

Did you visited the western part of the city as well (not that I wish you get there too soon ) ?

Made sure i was there for sunsert, one tip though is dont eat in the revolving restaurant, the food looked pretty but tasted like cardboard!

Funnily enough, my next set of pics are of the western part of the city.

We caught the train over to Berlin Zoo, and wanted to go shopping. We had planned to spend the day in Potzdam but were a bit tired of sight seeing. A band got on the train and started playing music, funny at first but a bit of a cliche now (i remember thinking i would have found this cool 5 years ago.....i'm so jaded now!)

Unfortunately the famous bombed church was undergoing renovation so didint take any pics, but we headed for supposedly europes largest department store, only to find it was a national holiday and all shops were closed! So a day strolling around the Tiergarten was decided on instead

It's Bellevue Palace, residence of the president.

Is it the German president or Chancellor, she/the position is never reffered to as president in the UK?

I stopped here in a beer garden and had a burger, was a real slice of German leisure life and can imagine on hot summer days being a fun thing to do with friends

@cradiff: this thread is awesome! Moreover, if awesomeness could be measured it'd be definately one of the most awesome SSC threads I've ever seen. Great job!

Angela Merkel is the Federal Chancellor. The Chancellor is the head of Government. In other countries often called Prime Minister.

The Federal President is Joachim Gauck. The President is the head of state.

Bellevue is not the residence of Angela Merkel (our Chancellor) but the residence of Joachim Gauck (our president).

The president is head of state in Germany, but holds only ceremonial power. Then comes the Chancellor, with the effective power.

By the way, the official residence of the Chancellor is this building on the right:

But she prefers to live here, right opposite the Pergamon Museum (you must have walked by):

It's usually highly secured by guards, as you can see.
