Walking from the popular MockernbrĂĽcke to poshy Gendarmenmarkt is a way to get a sense of the variety of Berlin and its people.

Hallesches Ufer :: all about cars, and still I cannot dislike it completely

Around Mehringplatz :: almost a (colorful) village

Along South Französische Str. :: patchwork of old and neo buildings, patchwork of unlikely second hand shops and trendy bio coffee shops

Checkpoint Charlie :: grapes of visitors, a sample of the planet

Leipziger Str. :: concrete. Tons of

Gendarmenmarkt :: annoyingly perfect, picturesque Berlin but... why not?
