Munich, Berlin, and Hamburg - Summer, 2007


Across the street from Munich Hauptbahnhof

MarienPlatz--'touristy, but I love it anyway.

Very frequent, fast trains--95% punctual

The entrance to Deutsches Museum on the Isar River

A large electricity exhibit-Oliver and Adrian viewing coils

An even larger flight exhibit-past, present, and future.

Adrian looking out over the Isar and Munich

Marienplatz--St. Peter's Tower

Marienplatz, the Frauenkirche towers in background

Englischer Garten-a map-any other shot does not do it justice.


Berlin Hauptbahnhof from a distance

Berlin Hauptbahnhof

Knut, the big attraction at Berlin Zoo

A long walk back to Los Angeles

Adrian-a striking figure before the Brandenburg Gate

Along a half-mile wall--one of many colorful "people's murals"

Approaching the former site of the infamous Berlin Wall

A sign I first remember seeing in James Bond movies.

Potsdam, not far outside Berlin

A statue in a park in Potsdam--revered, not covered.


Hamburg City Hall from a canal edge

One of many walled tributaries in Hamburg

Approaching Michaeliskirche (pix from atop the tower follow)

The "old town" and City Hall from atop Michaeliskirche tower

Hamburg has a permanent carnival: Dom. We loved it.

Looking toward the vast Hamburg Harbor

Adrian atop the tower-windblown and blustered

En route to visit the North Sea at Buesum

A quaint North Sea town-lots of German tourists

First sight of the North Sea-stormy and foreboding

Adrian, chilled more than expected... am I

Fishing harbor in Buesum

Hauptbahnhof in Hamburg-heading back Austria
