Cold but clear day in Berlin, left just enough time to walk along the Tiergarten, past the Soviet Memorial, to the Brandenburg Gate, on past the American, French and British Embassies, down to Potsdamer Platz then along past the diplomatic area (filled with all the new embassies) back along the park, through to Wittenbergplatz, quick sneak into KaDeWe to see the Christmas displays before back to the hotel on Budapester Str. Great walk, probably a little too fast, but always love doing this. Normally, when I have more time, I go on along Unter den Linden all the way past Humboldt University, Museum Island and into Alexanderplatz, turning at Karl Marx Allee, but not enough time this year.

Berlin is a fascinating city and well worth a visit anytime.
