#944: Homage to Berlin
A final homage to Berlin as September kicks in. It seems like months ago that I was in this beautiful, vibrant city, and without doubt it is somewhere I would readily visit again.
The parliament building for the German government, the Reichstag building features an amazing rooftop viewing platform. Designed by celebrated British architect Sir Norman Foster, it offers panoramic views across the city, two interwoven walkways around a central mirrored column.
#941: Berlin Architecture
Berlin has had a troubled recent history, but it is not afraid of creating bold statements with its architecture, while still remaining true to its roots.
#940: Schloss Charlottenberg
Another of Berlin’s landmarks, now, and it’s the Schloss Charlottenberg.

#938: Air Lift
Commemorating the airlift that broke the blockade of Berlin in the immediate post-war years, the Denkmal für die Opfer der Luftbrücke (Berlin Airlift Monument) stands at the entrance to Tempelhof Airport. The three arcs pointing west to symbolise the three air corridors that were the city’s lifeline in 1948/1949.
