We have had an amazing four days in Berlin assisted by unseasonally warm weather. Our hotel, The Radisson Blu, is fabulous and well-situated (for a change I chose well - thank you Trip Advisor for your assistance) on the River Spree and next to Unter den Linden.
We have done a combo of bus tours (hopon hopoff) and losts of walking around this city that is a major construction zone. This morning we opted for a 1 hour cruise down the Spree to gain a different perspective on the city.
Here are a few happy snaps from that excursion.
|Do the right thing - Berlin style (I think)|
|Oldest Church in Berlin - St Nicholas|
|Domed church on left is my fave building|
|Large map of Berlin with prominent places pinned|
|We went under lots of bridges|
|Angele Merkel's office - known locally as the washing machine|
|Double decker bridge links parliamentary buildings|
|Most of this bridge survived bombing in the war|
