Berlin

Updated: May 30, 2018



Memorial To Soviet Troops Berlin


In February I was lucky enough to spend a few days in Berlin vibrant capital city full of history ancient and modern and at the heart of Europe

Berlin a place I have wanted to visit since well before the wall came down. I finally took my chance as a birthday present to myself. To start with I think my interest was piqued by the spy novels I read in my youth. Then there is the history and particularly the years between the wars thinking of Isherwood’s Berlin Stories.

It is a city of contrast still. Wide streets wonderful buildings both old and new, monuments memorials and parks.

A brilliant integrated transport system and cycle and walking friendly. Museums, art galleries, theatres. It clearly has all the ills of modern city homelessness, rough sleepers, aggressive beggars and tourist trap scams, buskers on the underground and the worst version of Hallelujah ever.
