Just returned from a 3 city tour with my daughter that included Berlin, Munich and Paris... in that order. In consideration of Berlin's horrendous history, I figured we would visit here first, get it out of the way, then enjoy relaxing atmospheres in the latter two. Well, despite the visual reminders of Berlin's brutal history throughout the city (which actually added to the allure of this wonderful city), my daughter and I both declared that this was our favorite destnation. We loved the efficient transportation system; the wonderful neighborhoods; great food; delicious pastries; the Spree riverfront; KaDeWe; hanging out in Pariser Platz, Tiergarten and the Reichstag. I just wished we had more time here. Berlin is definitely a tourist-friendly city, nothing like Paris where you are nickel and dimed to death. I would love to return sometime.
