Very nice. My only time visiting Berlin was for the Christmas Markets and I was too focused on mulled wine! I need to go back during the year and actually explore these monuments.

I guess I'll need to explore the mulled wine when I get back...we were focused on beer and currywurst!

This is great. Thanks so much for all the pictures, especially the older ones. One thing I always do when I visit places is imagine what the place was like for people in the past. The history of places I visit is one of the biggest allures for me.

Thanks!... That's true for us as well...we're always asking ourselves "how did it get this way?" "why did they put it here?" "what were they worried about when they did that?" and so forth.

This has been one of my favorites too, but I never knew that a traveler could go inside. Thanks for the details on its history. Every time I've passed it, the doors have been closed. I will try to visit it next month after I sit at Zum Nussbaum—Reiner's favorite Berlin spot—and toast to #travel and #history.

Sometimes, while traveling or at home, you just fall in love with a building. It might be majestic like Notre Dame, massive like the Jeronimos Monastery, soaring like the Empire State Building, beautifully-detailed like the Chrysler Building...or it...

Photo Gallery: Basel's Daily Market

PHeymont ·
On our recent stopover in Basel, we visited the daily market that's taken place in front of the city's Rathaus, or town hall, for centuries. Unlike the weekly markets that are everywhere, this one is there every day, and bigger on weekends. The...

Glimpses of Basel

PHeymont ·
  When you visit a city for the first time—especially if it's just a short stop—you can't do much more than grab a quick general view, and promise yourself to return. It's sort of like the New York Times' "36 Hours In..." series, and...

Gumbo's Pic of the Day, June 29, 2014: Berlin's Fernsehturm

PHeymont ·
Two landmarks for the price of one: Berlin's Fernsehturm, or TV Tower, is reflected on the facade of the Park Inn, near Alexanderplatz.   The Fernsehturm is the tallest building in Germany, at a bit over 1200 feet. It and the Brandenburg Gate are...

The Wien Rathaus: City Hall, Vienna

Samantha loved her tour and visit to the Wien Rathaus in Vienna, Austria. It was huge and amazing. Just watch out for the seats in the chamber room. They were not nice to her. :(
