Berlin Day 4
Today we went to see the centre of the third Reich.... I mean Bundestag.... those can get confused right? (In reality it is close).
After a thorough check we were lead to a waiting area. Mind you we had to make a reservation to even come into the building.
After a detailed explanation of the Reichstag building and its long history we were lead to through the halls of this Iconic building.
Having been renovated multiple times since the 1940s the building had a distinctly modern flavour to it. Yet, as an testament to it's rich history the inner halls had a treat.
Along some of the inner halls stood alcoves and entire archways full of original stonework. These stones had history written across them in cerilic. In 1945 after three days of fighting Soviet soldiers took Berlin. Upon storming the Reichstag, the soldiers grabbed Charcoal and inscribed anything they could think of. This was truly awesome to see.
We got hungry so it was time to find some dinner
