Berlin is the place to visit, while in Germany. If you wonder what you can do in Berlin, here are a few ideas:
Take a Trabi-ride

Step inside the Gedächtniskirche: Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, in ruins, and the new church built right next to it
Berlin sculpture was conceived in 1985 by husband-and-wife artist team, Brigitte Matschinsky-Denninghoff and Martin Matschinsky. Unveiled in 1987 in W. Berlin’s Tauentzienstrasse in front of the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtniskirche heavily bombed during WWII, Berlin was one of the eight sculptures designed during W. Berlin’s Skulpturenboulevard Kurfürstendamm celebrating Berlin’s 750th anniversary. Berlin’s motif, a broken chain, symbolizes the severed connection between W. and E. Berlin caused by the construction of the Berlin Wall.

Stop by the Biergarten

Walk along Spree River and on either side of the West/East mark. Soon, you won’t be able to distinguished the former East Berlin from the West, because, after all, today there’s only one Berlin.
There are many more places to visit and things to do while in Berlin. I plan on visiting again soon.
As always, thanks for stopping by.
