Berlin City Tour last part; other Tourist Spots

Central Europe 6th part: 5-days in traveling solo in Germany
October 20 to October 24, 2013


After visiting the Victory Column which is approximately 1 kilometer farther from the train station, I roam the city again by self-guided walk by a free map provided in Tourist information office, starting from Brandenburgertor to the west all the way to Berlin Cathedral. Afterwards, to Berlin Tower then a metro hopping from Berlin Wall to Charlottenburg Palace for night shots.

Brandenburgertor is a former city gate, rebuilt in the late 18th century as a neoclassical triumphal arch, and now one of the most well-known landmarks of Germany. Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe is a memorial to the Jewish victims of the Holocaust,  consists of a 19,000 m2 (4.7-acre) site covered with 2,711 concrete slabs or "stelae", arranged in a grid pattern on a sloping field. Berlin Cathedral (German: Berliner Dom) is the colloquial name for the Evangelical (Protestant) Oberpfarr- und Domkirche (Supreme Parish and Cathedral Church). Fernsehturm is a television tower in the city centre close to Alexanderplatz, constructed between 1965 and 1969. Berlin Wall was a barrier constructed by the German Democratic Republic starting on 13 August 1961, that completely cut off West Berlin from surrounding East Germany and from East Berlin. Charlottenburg Palace is the largest palace in and the only surviving royal residence in the city dating back to the time of the Hohenzollern family.
