A full day of sight seeing but still fairly relaxed compared to my previous adventures in other countries. Woke up a bit later and was greeted by Till’s lovely family. We sat down and I had a couple of apples and orange juice to start the day. I’m still not feeling on top of my game cause of this cold and short period of sleep I get throughout the night. Mostly contributed to bad dreams. I decided that Sunday was going to be West Berlin day, so I made my way to U-ban subway to take it downtown. The walk was quite peaceful. The first sight was the bombed out church Kalser-Wilhelm, I believe. Amazing church but also a destroyed church from World War 2. It was Sunday so I could not enter the church. Next to it thought, they have constructed a new one built with all the stained glass of the bombed church. That was very beautiful. Next stop was the victory tower that once stood outside the Reich. This is the second tallest structure only dwarfed by the TV station spire. This tower is also rattled with ww2 bullet holes but it still has the amazing decorations around the building in tact. The stairway to the top was winding and tiring. I then walked through the tiergarten, a huge park that just may compare itself to central park. The park was very peaceful and a great place to sit down and enjoy a mid day lunch. Couldn’t help but take some pics of elderly walking down the paths and of the wooded area. I stumbled on a Russian monument in the park dedicated to the fallen Russian soldiers of World War 2. I didn’t expect finding it but when I did, I was amazed. I continued to walk through the Tiergarten and came to my set destination, the Reich (parliament building with a rich history) after standing in a Queue for more than an hour I was let in and took an elevator to the roof. From there we could see the whole city. The dome before 1939 was a masterpiece that burnt down in 1939 due to a controversial fire. The fire was used as a political demonstration that aided the socialists (Nazi) party in power. The roof was never repaired but in the 80s the roof was made of glass and has a mirror spire coming down through the middle. It makes great use of artificial light. My last stop of the day was the Jewish memorial that I visited last time in Berlin. But this time I was able to enter the underground museum. I spent two hours inside. The museum is a gripping sorrowful tales of thousand and millions of Jewish stories. It was hard to take in. I made my way back to till’s parents place and enjoyed a quite evening with a huge dinner.
