yes, but they are part of the city and they continue to make Berlin amazing.

the same as London.

I also like about Berlin that it's basically two totally different cities in winter and summer.

It's sooo gloomy, dark, cold and melancholic in winter and so green, easy-going, warm and alive in summer.

Both are essential though, without those dark months the summer wouldn't be just as bright as it is.



Hamburg in april Part I (city center, town hall, Alster and canals)

Hamburg in april Part II (Speicherstadt, Hafencity and St. Pauli piers)

Cheers for the info everyone like i say i looked for ages and couldn't work out what was different, then i realised it was missing its hat. And i never knew how massive it is, judging by the people dressed in orange at the bottom!

Berlin is mint, it's not without its problems, as with anywhere, but i really love the way you all treat your city as a living thing and not just a dead space where you happen to live. Can't wait to return

Pre-war Berlin 1936

Berlin could be a Megacity today. But the crappy Nazi_regime and WW II caused a 50 year lasting decelaration in the development of this awesome city.

Video of Berlin 1936 (Movie for the 1936 Olympics

Nowadays there is hardly another place in the world, where you can feel history like in Berlin.
From the bad (the nazi regime) to the good (fall of the iron curtain)

This movie actually contains relatively little propaganda, considering it's from 1936.

Maybe you should have actually watched it, instead of just reading the title which is admittedly stupid...

Und jetzt weiter im Kampf für political correctness...

Rat, these are great photos! I assume they are your own, as they are all from the same source, so will move this to Urban Showcase. pm me if they are not your own and I will move it back.
