June 29, 2012- Berlin is unlike any city I have been to in Europe. In my opinion, it really is the definition of a city, mixed with modern and old styles of architecture. Next to the Brandenburg Gate, which is over 200 years old, there are sleek embassies and office buildings. Like Hannover, the contrasting styles benefits each other.
After a ride through the subway, we arrived in the city center. The most prevalent sights in Berlin are all within a mile of each other. This allows easy transportation and convince for Germany’s largest city. Everything revolves around a park named the Tietergarten, kind of like the bullseye of Berlin. So from the Tietergarten it is easy to navigate the city streets.
We had dinner along the Spree river, and now are back at the apartment we rented. Tomorrow is a trip to the capital building, I’m sorry that I don’t have much to say, but I will later.
