This is sort of a beach, except that you can't swim in the river, you can sit in beachchairs and enjoy the weather. It's called 'Capital Beach', referring to the fact that Berlin is Germany's capital (again since the East and West were reunited).

Stadtmitte is a dense neighbourhood in the center of Berlin. It has a grid pattern, broad avenues and plenty of subway stations. It reminded some of my travel companions of New York's Manhattan.

Some of the buildings are a little 'offbeat'.

Checkpoint Charlie, where Berlin's former border between East and West used to be, has turned into a tourist attraction today.

There are a few shopping centers too, in this district.

Lastly, there also is an historical part in the district. This is Gendarmenmarkt, where the French Dome and the German Dome are both situated on different ends of a square.
