When the hated Berlin Wall was finally breached in 1989 thousands congregated joyfully at Brandenburg Gate to celebrate a new era—and ever since Berlin has reveled in its role as capital of the reunified Germany and one of Europe's most intriguing cities. After a detailed introduction to Berlin's unique history, food, land, and culture, author Damien Simonis explores each of the city's diverse neighborhoods. Among the sights: the fabled, tree-lined boulevard called Unter Den Linden; the Tiergarden, a large central park offering green relief; and the world-class museums clustered on Museum Island.
