Berlin Wall Memorial on Bernauer Street

30 years ago the Berlin Wall came down. Three years ago this memorial mural went up. Two years ago I took this photo.

Spectacle

Strike a pose

Just a scene I found to be rather odd as I walked around Olympic Stadium in Berlin a couple years ago.

The world’s best-known LGBT event takes place today in Berlin. One million people will participate in the festivities. The parade procession runs from Kurf├╝rstendamm to Brandenburger Tor, where the grand final rally will take place.

Berlin Victory Column

Today’s photo, which comes from the location for Barack Obama’s speech in Berlin as a US presidential candidate during his visit to Germany in July 2008, was taken in Berlin’s Tiergarten Park. The original location for this statue is the center of this prior photo. The Victory Column was relocated to its present location in 1939 by the nazis. Had it not been relocated, it would have been destroyed in WWII.

This church is one of the more unique ones I’ve encountered. Besides the interior, the exterior is a half bombed out relic from WW2 and half octagonal 1960s work of “art”.
