In the course of German history, the Brandenburg Gate played a lot of different roles; its latest and most famous role: The peaceful symbol of the reunification of East and West Germany and the end of the cold war. I certainly feel respect for such a historic significance of Germany.
The Brandenburg Gate, the Brandenburger Tor in Berlin is one of the first landmarks that comes to mind when thinking of Germany. And even it was the day of my arrival in Berlin I didn’t let slip this opportunity to go away to take some pictures.
Tricycle for Tourist. No doubt an environment friendly choice to promote tourism.
Young people having good time around Brandenburg gate with their friends. Since today is holiday they all seem much ease and relax. Today evening it was cold and windy but people were having wonderful time there enjoying street music, taking pictures, taking portraits .. and so on.

World Time: The World Time Clock is one of the Alexanderplatz’s (center point of Berlin) most well-known features. It was constructed in 1969 as part of the square’s redevelopment and has become a popular meeting point.
Weighing 16 tonnes and 10 metres tall, it features a revolving cylinder with the world’s 24 time zones bearing the names of major cities in each zone. I wish it has also time of Kathmandu, Nepal. 🙁 The mechanism constructed in a way which enables the current time in each zone to be read.
The clock is topped by a simplified model of the solar system, which revolves once a minute.
Berlin on Bike: Official site of Berlin on Bike stated that half of Berlin’s households don’t own a car. The city is flat, green, and highly accessible by bike with lanes and quiet streets. Berliners like to bike for sure. You can see lot’s of bikes.
Delighting Dresden: Dresden is the capital city of the German Federal Free State of Saxony. It is situated in a valley on the River Elbe. The Dresden capital is part of the Saxon Triangle metropolitan area.
Dresden has a long history as the capital and royal residence for the Electors and Kings of Saxony, who for centuries furnished the city with cultural and artistic splendor.
The controversial bombing of Dresden in World War II by the United States Army Air Forces and the Royal Air Force, 40 years in the Soviet bloc state of the German Democratic Republic and contemporary city development has changed the face of the city broadly. Considerable restoration work has helped restore the city to its pre-war glory.
Since German reunification in 1990, Dresden has re-emerged as a cultural, political and economic centre in the eastern part of Germany.
