A Walk Through The City And The New Berlin City Castle

We made a “culture day” this day and saw the exposition “Berlin Global”. And for the first time we have been to the newly built Humboldt Forum aka the Stadtschloss. The castle in the middle of the city has been rebuilt at the place were once the Palast der Republik stood. The latter has been contaminated by asbestos and has been the government building of the former GDR which was a dictatorship. But at the same time, a lot of people identified with this state and this building and I still think, it was wrong to tear it down and build some kind of Disney World from the past at its place.
