Sights in Germany


My husband and I traveled by train to Berlin, Germany, in June ’04. We used public transportation there (U-Bahn and S-Bahn), seeing all of the exciting landmarks such as the Brandenburg Gate, once a dividing point between East and West Berlin and now a symbol of German unity.

We visited the Kaiser-Wilhelm Church, or Gedächtnis-Kirche. I was impressed with the historical pageantry done in mosaic.

The Pergamon Museum was outstanding, and the Reichstag building was an architectural wonder with far-reaching views of the city.

In nearby Potsdam we toured the small but elegant San Souci Palace. The name means “without a care,” which seemed appropriate for the title page of my journal.
