This is how I saw Berlin:...
This is how I saw Berlin: still divided in two by a wall that was a visible line between two worlds.It was real strange to be in East Berlin, people were different there. Nice though, but yet keeping things more to themselves.
Sans Souci Park
The Park Sanssouci covers 724 acres - compared to Central Park's 840 - and has three palaces: the rococo Sanssouci Palace, the Baroque New Palace and Charlottenhof Palace.
We had the opportunity to go in to Sans Souci, but were too tired.

City gates: Nauener Tor and Jägertor
Around the centre of Potsdam there are several gates that were connected by the city wall. Along the Hegelallee in the north of the centre there are two of them: The Jägertor and the Nauener Tor. The Jägertor (hunter gate) is the oldest gate in Potsdam and was built 1733. The Nauener Tor was built a bit later but also in the 18th century and is the more impressive one. It was built after a draft of Friedrich II who was inspired by a Scottish castle.
New Palace was built after the seven-year war. It stands in contrast to the modest Palace of Sanssouci. It is 4 times as long and 3 times as high. The New Palace contains about 200 rooms on two storeys. Its central part is topped by a dome. It was the last large structure built in the Prussian Baroque style. The intention of Frederick II was to show the world that Prussia was still powerful, in spite of the burdens of the war.
After buying a ticket tourists can visit the palace with a guide. I've read that the interiors are equaly impressive as the facade, but being short of time we didn't get in.
