Visit the Wall, at the East...
Visit the Wall, at the East side gallery, the longest stretch still remaining. Wow, this is history, recent history, this town was actually divided down the middle just over a decade ago. And it still is - there is a noticeable difference between east and west, and the people reflect this. you must talk to locals, get to know this place, it is one amazing city. Arriving, going WOW at everything, and going up the Fernsehturm...what a spectacular view, you can see the city's divide from up there. Berlin is THE place to be at.
Memorials - Marx & Engels
Ludwig Engelhart designed this memorial to the authors of the "Communist Manifesto" which was dedicated in 1986 - when the Marxist East German state had only another three years of existence. It's not far from the east bank of the Spree, in "Marx-Engels Forum," appropriately enough.
On the day I was there, a group of Chinese visitors was having its picture taken in front of the revolutionaries. I don't imagine that too many Daimler-Chrysler executives stop by here!

Movable artwork - pose 2 (do not rate)
Again: I found this artwork on my picture put in front of New National Gallery (Neue Nationalgalerie) at Potsdamer Straße (Tiergarten). I have no idea who created it, do you?
Nothing very special but the four square elements of the work were moving on the wind. Look at the previous tip and compare pictures.
Seven Lounge Cocktail Bar
"After the long footslog back to the apartment, we quickly ventured out on another mini-odyssey, this time over to Mitte-Berlin, and the Seven Lounge. After many hikes, tram journeys and U-bahn trips, including a brief pause to stare at the fireworks over der Alex, we finally arrived at the 7L cocktail bar. This proved to be as cramped as the entrance to Hanno's apartment, but with plenty more style and character. The four girls who seemed to be running the place were particularly distinctive. First there was the DJ with the goggles reeling off a series of classic lounging tracks from the decks crammed into one side of the confined corridor. Secondly there was the pig-tailed bar maid, frantically serving up complex cocktails for the crowded gangway. Finally, and most strikingly, were the two girls who ran the length of the narrow passage taking orders and delivering drinks. The first was a shaven headed black girl, with taut cheekbones, and the second an Asian girl with huge hair, plucked straight from the 126.96.36.199.'s garage rock band in Kill Bill." - from my travelogue
This is a stylish and very comfortable lounging bar, at least if you can get a seat in the busy and narrow gangway. The place is free to get into, and is open from 8pm until 4am at weekends, and until 2am the rest of the week.
