Discovering Berlin

We spent our day out discovering some of downtown Berlin. We had so much fun. Berlin is absolutely amazing. Here's a little taste of what we saw (on foot!) today.
The Brandenberg Gate... major crossing point from East to West Berlin

Remnants of the Berlin Wall... only a few pieces are left. I was surprised at how thin the wall was... not more than a few inches! The whole path of the wall is marked through the city with brick.

The Berliner Dom... huge, AMAZING Lutheran Cathedral. We'll post more photos of this when we visit again and don't have dead camera batteries for the interior

Monument to the Slaughtered Jews... its a whole city block of rectangular stones. A little strange, but pretty cool all the same.

The Reichstäg... Germany's capitol building. Theres a really cool glass dome on top.

Overall, here's how we feel about being in Berlin togther. More another time!
