Visit a city - Why not Posen / Poznań?

Half a day in Posen / Poznań, an old university city with more than 550,000 inhabitants. You can visit it from Berlin with the Berlin-Warsaw express in less than 3 hours.








Posnania (Poznań), ca. 1617, view from north

The new Imperial Castle aka Kaiser-Castle (Zamek w Cesarski Poznaniu), one of the last great palace buildings in Europe, built on behalf of Wilhelm II in 1913 in the Romanesque Revival style. Later extended with the balcony (and the tower?)
