Berlin: What I’d Have Done Differently

The Author By Kelly Hayes-Raitt | August 31st, 2010 | Comments No Comments

It’s hard to imagine that only 25 years ago, this city was cut in half. The scar has healed nearly completely and I wish in my wanderings I’d been more attuned to the former laceration to be able to notice the Wall’s vestiges.

Had I visited the Topography of Terror exhibition (www.topographie.de), Checkpoint Charlie and the Checkpoint Charlie Museum (www.mauermuseum.de) before traipsing around the city, I would have had a deeper appreciation of Berlin and it’s not-so-distant history.

Tourist Tip-Off: Berliners don’t jaywalk. Even in the rain with no traffic in sight, they wait patiently for the little green Go-Man.
