An excursion to Berlins typical sites in East and West
Berlin has several faces. From the old heart we tour to different places of history and modern life. The former cold war hot spot Berlin is nowadays a vibrant Metropol. The typical "Berlin blend" of architecture, Memorial places, multi cultural influences, Documentation Centers of world history, art and life style, makes the city so unique. A place of "Must have seen":
The tour begins at the new Potsdam Platz. From there we walk along inside the old central part of Berlin with all those historical buildings. On Alexanderplatz we take the Metro to the Eastern End of our trip, to the STASI Museum (the former East German Ministry of state Security). From here we return by Metro and Tramway towards West Berlin Site, into the well known multi-culti district Kreuzberg. Up to the airport Tempelhof, the former US Airforce base. There we take a brake, maybe in the nice old Market Hall. Enjoying the athmo. Berlin cuisine? Get a Döner Kebap, first created in West Berlin. Then we ride to the Goverment Berlin Wall Memorial stripe. Finally from there to the center of West Berlin with his noble mile Kurfürstendamm. The shopping and flaneur mile with is flair and well known buildings. A short visit of the new "Bikini" Concept Store and finally a view into the legendary KaDeWe department store. From here we go back by Metro to Potsdamer Platz, or your place.
