We left Berlin with a desire to return: we like this big city with a suburban feel, its eclectic architecture, diverse ethnicity, and unique twin city past that has created a dual character between the East and West halves. We will be interested to see how Berlin changes after all of the construction when it is firmly established as Germany's capital.
The TV tower, tallest building in Berlin, is a symbol of East Berlin (the Communists erected the tower to show-off technological prowess). Besides the tower, cranes dominate Berlin's skyline while the city continues its massive construction efforts.
In front of the Reichstag's dome.
Those wacky Communist idea-men, Marx and Engles.
