I disagree too, Berlin doesn't look poor at all! It's improving daily thankfully and will continue only to get better.

Looking forward to seeing more shots on here of a great city!

I'm originally from Berlin, so my opinion is a little bit biased, but Berlin is just the most interesting city in Germany. Others may look more homogeneous or clean, but only Berlin offers all shades of the good and the bad sides of urban life. Of course Berlin lacks large skyscraoers, but the city is really large, so there isn't that incredible density like in Honkong which makes the need to build high.

The taller tower of the Kaiser Wilhelm Church looks sort of like a shrunken supertall.

This city amazed me so much in March 2007 that I'm returning in November for a 2nd visit. Never mind that people in Berlin seemed less attractive than the average European (in Cologne things looked better, it seemed). But I'm willing to deal with it in exchange for this amazing, dynamic, yet still-underground city.

You are actually not that wrong. Berlin has the highest unemployment and highest debt in Germany. Wages are also much lower than in western Germany.

The good thing is, that the city is too big for its population. Rent is therefore pretty cheap compared to other European cities.

This might be true, but put it in an international context and it's not so bad. I know that Berlin beats a lot of cities in other western nations despite its financial worries. I'm just hoping that since the unemployment trend is downwards it'll mean that its economic outlook will improve as time goes on. There was a report issued in Der Spiegel earlier this year that showed that growth in Eastern Germany clearly outstripped growth in the West, helping to close the economic gap between the two.

I've just posted 5o pics - would have warranted a thread of its own, don't you think?
