Berlin still bears scars from World War II - the main cathedral remains bombed out just as it was at the end of the war. The rest of the damage has been cleaned up and the city restored, but now scars from the Cold War remain - museums and memorials to the Berlin Wall and those who tried to escape. We found the center of East Berlin still somewhat seedy, with cheap shops and skinheads hanging around Alexanderplatz. Public transport was good and access to our caravan park in nearby Potsdam was good.
South to the Dresden area, we stayed at a caravan park owned by an enterprising young couple who provided all of the amenities that we could want - plus good advice on places to see. Craftsmanship remains high in what used to be Eastern Germany and we spent a day wandering through a Christmas shop and loading up for future Christmas'.
Muenchen is the primary city of Bavaria, and seemed to us to be just a big city. The area around Marienplatz was nice for window shopping and
Guten Morgen earns you a reply in the morning here, just as it does in Austria.
