    Thanks both.
    Although I`ve been to Germany several times on business, I`ve always wanted to visit Berlin as I too am very interested in the events of WW11.

    To finally make it there was among the highlights of this cruise to me.
    I`d love to return again one day to spend more time there than we were given during our whistle stop tour on the excursion.

    If you do get back there keep your DW away from KaDeWe. It is a HUGE department store and is to Berlin, what Harrods is to London.

    Thank you Terry. I can remember watching the wall come down on TV and crying. Seeing the peoples faces full of hope.
    Very interesting that they are referred to as Nazi's. Why should a whole country be lumped into one phrase.

    It was really only our tour guide who made reference to the word "Nazi" when she was explaining a few events of WW2, so as to distance the current German race from the regime during that period in history.
