Berlin Images (3) – The Berlin Wall Memorial

In memory of the Berlin Wall and those who died attempting to get from one side of the wall to the other, a 200 metre portion of the main and inner walls and the “death strip” have been preserved between Ackerstrasse and Bergstrasse.  The site was made a protected landmark in 1990 and is now the last genuine remnant of the Wall.

Berlin Images (2) – Reichstag Dome

Designed by Norman Foster to represent the reunification of Germany – the Reichstag Dome is well worth a visit.  The modern glass and steel design, with its sweeping circular internal walkway around a cone of internal mirrors, is an amazing contrast to the traditional neo-Baroque Reichstag building.
