Joyeux Noel de Berlin!

A few pictures summarising our Berlin trip over Christmas.

We climbed up the dome of the Reichstag,
for a really enjoyable visit and view over the city.

Oberbaum Bridge links Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg boroughs,
previously divided by the Berlin Wall

The Holocaust Memorial, with pillars (stelae) reaching up to 4.8 metres high
(it does not look so as the ground is sloping down)

One of the exhibitions in the impressive Jewish Museum

A portion of the Berlin Wall
at the former Gestapo headquarters
A portion of the Wall at the East Side Gallery

Dead Chicken Alley

The Astronaut by Victor Ash

Gendarmenmarkt, with its nice Christmas market
