As mentioned a few times before, I visited Germany for two weeks in February 2015. While we had a chance to discover Berlin on our own as well, one of the things we did as a group was to visit the Reichstag.
We got a tour of the inside of the building, which has a long and fascinating history if you find that interesting, and at the end of the tour, we got dropped of and got to tour the roof and the dome on our own. The view from the dome was quite beautiful, but I realized as we were there how unfamiliar the Berlin skyline is, at least to me.
Without having been to New York I’ve seen the skyline in many pictures, movies and tv-shows. London and Paris has quite a few familiar sights, but beside the TV-tower on Alexanderplatz and the Berliner Dom, there were a lot of unfamiliar buildings.
Berlin has been through changes over the last century, which might play a part in it, but there are a lot of well-known cities that seem to have a fairly unknown skyline. It just felt sort of strange to realize.
