Love the BERLIN_006181 by K Dederding, on Flickr picture.
Perfectly taken in the middle, without any flaw's if you ask me.

Like the architecture also. The hal feels symmetrical @ first sight, but at second it totaly isn't, Great!

Marvellous! The Prussian Arcadia. Did you also watch that lovely "Sanssouci von oben" documentary recently?

Sanssouci is indeed true splendor. What I like most about it is its size; small and spectacular...a true jewel box of a personal palace. Very similar in this regard to Linderhof in Bavaria. Both kings--single men--created intimate, personal, proportionate homes that maximize the use of grand ornamentation and rich finishes, but designed to actually allow the owner to enjoy every square meter.

The actual Sanssouci Palace is small and intimate indeed. The whole Sanssouci garden with its many palaces, artistry, belvederes etc. is a vast area though.

Especially Neues Palais! One of the largest baroque palace buildings ever constructed.

Is it just me, or has the city of Berlin the last couple of years built 50-60 houses in old style around the city?

I have been to Berlin 3 times and it truly is one of my top two favorite cities. What kills me though is not having access to a time machine... I had talked with ladies from the local Berliner Bär organization here in the Milwaukee area some years ago and they said they couldn't return to their home city. They still remembered it as it was in the 1930's and 1940's. So much history, so much culture, so much heritage was lost due to the war.

Here are some self-taken pictures from KÖPENICK, a formerly independent town on the eastern outskirts of Berlin, bordering a vast network of woods and lakes.
