... into smaller groups for the day and ventured around the city in these smaller groups. I liked my group though, it was a nice, fun, diverse group. We first took the metro to take us to the Tiergarten which was at the other side of the city. Once there we began to walk around and arrived at the Siegessäule (Victory Column).

We got put into groups, then our guide Mark took us off and around the city.
