Germany - Summer in Berlin
Dem Deutschen Volke
This is the seat of the German Parliament, reopened in 1999. Most people remember it from the staged image of a Russian soldier raising a flag on its roof in 1945.
Sandra silently thinking something in German. Maybe her thoughts goes to Mies van der Rohe, the Bauhaus master who designed the building next to us.

From the ashes
This church was built in 1890 but damaged during a bomb raid in 1943.
Why do humans always insist on building fences instead of bridges?
Du bist kein Berliner
Nobody likes George W Bush, especially not on his visit to Berlin earlier this year.
East Side Gallery is the largest remaining section of the Berlin Wall.

Here be Americans
The corner of Friedrichstrasse and Zimmerstrasse is the location of the well-known border station held by Americans, one of the Berlin Wall gates during the cold war.

How to impale a sphere
Surprisingly good coffee is served at the height of 207 meters.

I want to be a Marilyn

Edge of civilization
This is what you get for ascending 285 steps in a narrow spiral staircase. The angels in Wim Wender's Der Himmel über Berlin also met at this place.

Trains of thought
This ruin used to be the largest train station in Europe.
How fragile we are
Imagine that such a thin piece can block so many people.
