During my recent daytrip to Berlin, I took the opportunity to have a walk through sunny – and empty – Berlin. The comparably short stroll through the government district of the German capital had quite some unique experiences, so that I felt to simply share them with you in this Pictured Story. Enjoy the major size pictures and don’t miss the lack of text too much.
Berlin Government District – Location & Transport
The map below shows the position of the Reichstag, the home of the German parliament, the Bundestag. It feels a bit of a philosophical discussion whether the Reichstag or maybe the (more famous, but not governmental meaning) Brandenburg Gate is the heart of the area. I walked from Berlin Main Station along the Reichstag and Brandenburg Gate to the Nazi memorial and the Topographie des Terrors exhibition, which illustrates the importance of that area during the Nazi era. Overall, the walk took me not longer than 30 minutes, even though I made a couple of breaks.
