My Berlin visit was very interesting and memorable as we have seen historical places, like berlin wall, charli's check point, Brandenborg Gate etc as well as we went to see the natural beauty of Potsdam. Lalu,Polu,Girish and Bindu joinged me from Arhus and I was alone from Copenhagen. The youth hostel was very good and clean. We liked Berlin as we got cordial welcome by the sunny weather, good people, Indian food and cultural heritage.

The city features a series of interconnected lakes and is well known for its unique cultural landscapes, in particular the parks and castles of Sanssouci, a World Heritage Site.
Munich is Germany's third largest city and one of Europe's most prosperous and expensive. The city has a population of about 1.3 million (as of 2006) and the Munich metropolitan area is home to around 2.7 million people. The city is located on the River Isar north of the Bavarian Alps.
