- BERLIN -

Berlin was at different times in its history capital of the Kingdom of Prussia, the German Empire, the Third Reich, the German Democratic Republic (GDR/DDR), and finally the Federal Republic of Germany.

Despite this, it still manages to be a particularly un-German city...

Really great images, you caught the essence of the city. Some of the pics must be years old, like the Alexanderplatz.

Thanks for the pictures! Berlin is wonderful - the contrasts, old & new, the fact that it's a big open-air museum... I love it!

And these two buildings are amazing:

These are great. Thanks. They really give the feel of the city outside of the tourist attractions.

Great pics, thanks for sharing. Berlin seems a lot more colorful that I imagined it to be though.
