_POSTCARD FROM BERLIN
Berlin is a city ‘under construction’ . . .
all over the old capital of East Germany and this has been in full swing almost continuously since the wall came down and tourism growth started again in earnest; obviously given a major push when Berlin became the capital of re-unified Germany.
The City was about 90 per cent destroyed by bombing and the major ground battle when the Russians took Berlin at the end of WW2; and thus there has and continues to be plenty of work to do, added to by efforts now to undo many of the destructions of the GDR period.
Some very interesting re-developments and new developments have occurred . . .
but the German development industry has much in front of it. A wonderful City with major changes to see for some time.
