On the way to Prague, we stop at Potsdam which was once a royal city. Park the car at film museum and walk to Brandenburg gate to catch the Hop on and Hop off Bus. The bus took us round the sightseeing route and the whole journey was about 90 mins. Since we are short of time, we just visit the Sanssouci Park which is one of the many UNESCO heritage site in Potsdam and just a short distance from the Brandenburg gate.

Arrive Berlin on the 16 September 2008. Found a budget hotel at the Charlottenburg area. This is the British area. There is a big shopping area just 5 minutes walk away. Bought a leather wallet here as it was really cheap and also try the currywurst, the hotdog is soft and nice. The next day planned was to join a free walking tour of Berlin which starts a 1.00pm but instead we went to the meeting place too early, so decided to join the 8 hours walking tour which cost only 12 euros. Our guide, Terry is very keen and enthusiastic on the history and having a history lesson is no fun, so we keep asking him to just give us the background. One of the place he took us was this old theater and outside is this giant chair, well manage to climb on it with the help of Terry and took a pics. Berlin is a nice city with plenty of sightseeing. I am very impressed with the Sony Centre and the Renaissance Hotel. Both have very modern architecture.
