... area in between. So areas like the Potsdamer Platz from the 1920s and 1930s was actually the same as it had been at the end of WW II and once the wall was up, those areas were a restricted zone that no one entered, unless they were East German guards or stasi. (the east German secret police)
Today after a wonderful German breakfast with glebwurst, brotchen, boiled eggs, and various cheeses we set off for the natural history museum. It was in the ...
After Amsterdamaging myself, I bussed it to Berlin. It's definitely one of my favourite cities so far. And, along with Vegas, one of the most different and unique cities I've been to. There's just a special atmosphere about Berlin.
One of the things I love most about Berlin is the street art. The entire city seems to be covered in it. It's not just tags and ugly-looking graffiti, though. There are so many beautiful images created by talented ...
... separated. There are pictures of people holding up babies so that family on the other side of the wall could see them. So sad
We went by the Brandenburg Tor, the Reichstag and the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, a mesmerizing memorial about a block square filled with rows of concrete blocks of varying heights. The ground undulates quite a bit so from first glance all the blocks seem about the same size and not that impressive, but then you ...

Today Ingrid and Leslie served as our tour guides of Berlin; a fascinating city that has undergone so much reconstruction since the reunification of the East and West...construction that continues to this day.
A boat tour was a great way to see the city sights....many ...
... with stalls selling all the different types of pork based fast food that Germany has to offer. It was epic. Slightly shameful was the sight of Fosters and VB as the Australian offering and Abbotts Ale and Green King IPA as the English contingent sitting beside the mighty offerings from Bavaria and Prussia. We had an amazing time and a big thanks to the friends and family that came along to make it such a great send off.

Historical Traveler Reviews Steigenberger Berlin
Not a 5-Star Hotel
This hotel has seen "better days". Everything was O.K., but nothing special. Small bathroom .. cheap looking .... The service was friendly and helpful.
The location is good, only minutes to KADEWE, Gedaechtnis Kirche and Kurfuersten Damm.
We have stayed at the Steigenberger several times and have never been disappointed. The staff is outstanding. Each room comes with thick, comfortable bathrobes and slippers, which can be worn to the spa area, which is one of the most relaxing in all of Berlin.
We found this hotel so peaceful although only a 2 minute walk from busy, bustling Kurfurstendamm Strasse. Staff very helpful and friendly, rooms immaculate and the pool maybe small but a very welcome break after a strenuous day sightseeing and shopping.
Hotel Steigenburger, Berlin
Stayed here for a five day break in January 2005.
Nice hotel, very conveniently located near to the shops at one end of the K'damm and all transport links.
Rooms spacious and well kitted out. Super breakfast and all the staff were friendly and helpful. Only gripe was the air-conditioned room was a tad cold (it was cold and snowing in January and they did attempt to fix it).
The price was quite competitive as it was off peak and I thought it was good value. In reality though I would rate the hotel over all as nearer to 4 star than the 5 it claims. All in all an enjoyable stay.
Lovely place to stay.
We stayed in this hotel during May 2004 with friends - we booked rooms on the 6th floor and loved every minute of our stay. The service was wonderful, turned down beds, weather notices and chocolate, the executive lounge where free drinks and food was served from 3.00 p.m. to 9.00 p.m. was a real treat - we paid 100 per double room for this visit and it was worth every penny - breakfast was included too - I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Staff were very helpful throughout our stay.
Not a five star hotel
We just stayed at the Steigenberger Hotel for the second time. There is nothing to complain about, but facing all the new 5 star hotels in Berlin, it is a little bit old fashioned and needs a ground up renovation to compete.
Breakfast buffet is great, the location is quiet, just a few steps away from the Kurfuerstendamm. I can recommend it, but would rate it a 4 star hotel.
Good Hotel October 2, 2004
Stayed here 9 nights
excellent breakfast included in the price of the room
very close to resteraunts and shopping
good wireless service, priced similarly to other hotels.
I would stay again.
Average Hotel - I've learnt a lesson here, I should have stayed with my first choice of hotels, being the Swisshotel (which we visited and is absolutely fabulous) but then decided to go and stay at the Steigenberger Hotel as it looked very pretty with a pretty view of the gardens and a quiet tranquil location etc.. Wrong! I chose this hotel as a surprise romantic weekend away for my partners birthday. Upon arrival their was building rennovation and scaffolding as the reception was being moved around (which I was not notified of). Don't trust the pictures you see on the websites which look pretty good. Allegedly one of the top hotels in Berlin, this may have been the case some 10 or 15 years ago, but they can certainly do with updating their rooms and bathrooms which were very basic rooms with no toiletries (only plastic bottles which were attached to the wall and one of the containers was empty!) something you certainly dont expect in a 5 star hotel also no tea / coffee facilities, double bed consists of 2 mattresses pushed together, poor decor very dull looking, could do with brightening up and refreshing the place also their 'big size' pool as seen in their photos is like an oversized jacuzzi! Breakfast was very good but also very expensive - check this is included in the price of the room! However, good location from Ku'dam. Walking distance of a few minutes. Would not stay there again, felt dissappointed as I wanted the hotel to be perfect for the occasion and it certainly wasnt, but Berlin is great and thoroughly recommend the city for sightseeing and shopping.
Steigenberger...wish it was more than 1 night
Travel agent put me in the Steigenberger for just 1 night due to a hotel mix-up. Apparently this hotel was recently refurbished and I can say it's one of the nicest european hotels I've stayed at. Room was large and full of the most up to date ammenities. I felt it was like a US hotel. Lots of room, comfy bed, great bath/shower. Everything clean and nice. The hotel staff was english speaking (always helpful).
My only complaint is that it was far away from where I had to attend meetings everyday - the ICC Convention Center. It was about a 10 euro cab fare one way. The hotel was in a nice part of berlin with a cute park right across the street.
