A day in Berlin

After travelling to Finland and Russia we did some sightseeing in Berlin before going home again. 
The city is huge and the best way to go around is by bike.
Jani was driving us around and showing us the typical tourist sights. 

 We started at the famous Alexander Platz / Alex with the huge TV-Tower, it is 368m high and the highest building in Germany.
  As impressing as the TV-Tower is the Brandenburg Gate.
There were so many people doing photo stops us included. It is in between the very beautiful street "Unter den Linden" and "Straße des 17. Juni",
 both street are very nice and it was lovely doing a walk there. Jani also showed us her work place, the "Haus der Kulturen der Welt". It was build in the late fiftys as a congress hall and nowadays it is used as cultural centre with concerts, exhibitions, cinema etc.
From there you also have a great view to the workplace of Angela Merkel our chancellor.
 We also got a glimpse on the impressing Berliner Dom
and the Rotes Rathaus,
the workplace of the Mayor of Berlin. At the end of the day we drove to her most-liked place in Berlin the Rummelsburger Bucht and we saw a fantastic sunset.
 In summary we really liked the city and Jani promised us when we are back here she will show us more of her favourite city in the world.
