Halfway down

Close to the river

Just above the vineyard

Our room is the one on the right, second floor

Nicely maintained grounds

Outdoor tables

Tower at a jaunty angle

Straight on

The driveway

Sneaky American

The non-castle accomodations, not too shabby either

Heading back upstairs

At the landing

The spacious trunk

One slightly-larger-than-carry-on suitcase and a smashed backpack, no problem

One of many custom signs

Found a few bugs on the autobahn

Saying goodbye to the sweet machine

Our now-illegal Berlin AirBnB apartment

Looking the other direction

Tiny! The lower right cabinet is the fridge

View from the patio

Checkpoint Charlie, about five blocks away

Farewell, American sector!

Unsurprisingly, there's a McDonald's just inside the American sector

Relocated wall section

Showing a bit of wear

The west side

Giant jumble

Holocaust Memorial

Bleak but moving

Lots of subtly titled concrete

Looking down a row

Getting lost

Emerging from the maze

Brandenburg Gate top

The full gate

Full but not completely overrun



Reichstag, the seat of the German Parliament

The dome peeks out
