Charlottenburg was a former independent city? Hmmm... I didn't know that myself! Which of those images you've taken was the Town Hall since I can't immediately tell from your beautiful images? I particularly love your diagonal shots, especially with the parked cars... And I love your contrasting pics of a busy town center and a serene open space. Fantastic shots yet again!

And oh, the tile mosaic of Charlottenburg looks lovely too!

Thank you so much for your detailed comments, much appreciated!

"Charlottenburg was an independent city to the west of Berlin until 1920 when it was incorporated into "Groß-Berlin" (Greater Berlin) and transformed into a borough." According to Wikipedia

The last ones was the town hall, the tall stone building in the middle of the street.

This rundown is the Tacheles building, occupied by artists. I think it was closed just a month or so after my visit.

Your latest collection truly shows how culturally diverse and advanced Berlin has become... As the German capital, I can sense the wonderful blend architectural and artistic creativity and prowess that makes the city unique in Europe. I also notice that as being an arts mecca, freedom of speech through painting, sculpture, and design is evident in most parts of the vibrant city, and I would truly love to visit the city by myself as part of a whirlwind tour around Europe!

I'd say, from your latest collection, here are two images I truly love and can say are among the best so far from your set:

It seems to be a bunker. It looks interesting, it has a lot of bullet holes. But I haven't found any information about it.
