Of course we went across Friedrich Str. Not a beautiful street as such but a source of memory and history. Checkpoint Charlie, explanatory panels. Quite interesting.

We walked along the street to our hotel but spent most of our time going through this area in the S-Bahn station. It's like a shopping mall with a transit system that runs through it. Very easy street and station to get around.

We enjoyed our day in Berlin walking up and down Friedrichstrasse with its shops, cafes and bars. Similar to many large shopping streets in any Capital City this one has a great feel as its very wide and grand.

Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can
both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central
neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the
1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around
Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s,
rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a
carefree life here. An old hospital even became a
hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today
