Talking about Berlin

Berlin invites us to savour the intoxicating mix of old and new: The modernity with this wave of new construction like Postdamer Platz or the Reichstag and its historical charm: I could talk about the old streets of East Berlin, which are slowly being restored after remaining unchanged for 50 years, through to the grand architecture of Museumsinsel and Unter den Linden, and the green lung of the Tiergarten Park.

I believe that explains why Tourism is on the rise, Berlin used to be a very cheap city, perhaps one of the cheapest European Capitals, now, unfortunately this situation is changing and Berlin starts to standardise.
Anyway, things aren’t so bad; because you still can do a lot here without spending a fortune.
