NBTD's Travels: Berlin

Places visited

Amsterdam - https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=500522
Copenhagen - https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=501603
Oslo- https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=511629

Berlin

Following on from my trip to Amsterdam and Copenhagen , here are some pics from my visit to Berlin.

Another wonderful city, with so much to see and do - and a vibrant, bustling feel to it. I didn't have time to see all of it, so i will definitely be paying another visit sometime in the future.

We had terrible weather for the first couple of days - rainy and overcast. The last day was incredibly sunny and hot (just typical that the weather picks up on the day we leave)

Enjoy my rather touristy snaps...none of the Brandenburg Gate though, some bright spark thought it would be a good idea to construct a large tent around it to host a fashion show

Very nice pics.
Berlin has some amazing modern architecture - buildings look like they actually belong there.London could learn thing or two from this city.

Cheers.

I don't know why Germans don't like Berlin, it looks better than Hamburg to me. At least on the pictures.

Berlin looks more impressive than Hamburg would be the better words, I think. Berlin can't match the beauty of Hamburg or Munich...but it is much more impressive.

Berlin is such a cool city because they were able to rebuild destroyed buildings, churches, etc into almost completely the same condition as it was before. I visited Berlin last week and stayed in Kreuzberg area and the streets are little bit dark and there are a lot of gravities, garbages, homeless people in U-bahn stations. Other than those things, Berlin deserves to be the 'it' city

So what exactly is impressive about Berlin?

Thats because 1in3 people in Berlin are poor and unemployed. Berlin seems like a great city, the economic opportunity of the city if really lacking. Thats why majority of Germans prefer other cities.
