Many small villages that grew into a Metropolis
Anywhere but Potsdammer Platz Dancing until the sun came up (4:00am sunrise) at OSTGUT, a factory coverted to a huge multilevel disco. trance music upstairs, intense techno downstairs. The Berlin wall is still standing in this section of town.
Schlossbruecke (Castle Bridge)
The Castle Bridge has wrought iron railing and 8 groups of figures in white marble. These figures represent victory goddesses. I was here on the same day when I visited the Berlin Dom, since it is pretty close.
Gaba Gaba Hey the Ramones Museum
Wandering through Berlin this March, heading for the usual sites, i came across this museum and just had to visit.
A museum dedicated to the Ramones , full of memorabilia and Ramones stuff. Take a coffee and enjoy the guest book. Only cost a couple of euro to enter.
Krausnickerstr 23 Berlin-Mitte area
Potsdamer Platz Arkaden
The complex of modern buildings located south of Potsdamerstra?e bordering Potsdamer Platz is cultural, entertainment, commerial and first of all shopping center of newly built Berlin.
What was there?
- Potsdamer Platz Arkaden (Alte Potsdamer Stra?e 7, 10117 Berlin), Berlin's flagship shopping mall: over 120 shops, cafes, and restaurants under high glass ceilings; open 9.30 am - 8 pm Mon-Fri; 9.00 am - 4.00 pm Sat; restaurants open until midnight,
- Stella Musical Theater,
- Casino (Spielcasino),
- movie theaters (19 halls including 3D I-Max cinema),
- hotels: Madison Apartment Hotel and Grand Hyatt Hotel (on the left on my pic),
- banks, Daimler Benz company headquarters, other companies.
I was too tired to spend there... a few hours, I suppose. I can only say that the architecture of the area was really impressive.
Although situated at the bottom of a shopping centre, a strange place for a pub you might think, the Irish pub is great, large pub, large bar and band area, good selection of beers, Guinness if you like it and Live music.
As for food, there aren't any full meals only snacks and as I didn't try one I can't comment.
Atmosphere was good and its open until 3 or 4am.
Well worth a visit Casual
