Berlin teddy bears - Bears are the symbol of Berlin
Berlin still has its city symbol as a defiant black bear standing on its hind legs after its founder Albert I the Bear. This area of Germany had been abandoned to the Slavs as the original Germanic tribes moved westward or migrated to Britain when the Romans left. A Saxon Duke called Albert I the Bear crossed the Elbe River and reclaimed the lands from the pagan Slavic tribes. Berlin’s mascot is a bear. You will find teddy bears everywhere in Berlin. All the shops sell bear merchandise. On most streets you will find colourful five foot tall promotional Berlin Bears
Berlin capital of Germany Ideal tourist city break vacation destination
Berlin capital of the new Germany, is an ideal tourist city break vacation destination. I was not looking forward to visiting Berlin. Apart from the Brandenberg Gate and Check Point Charlie I did not think there would be much to see. Boy was I wrong. I was shocked how attractive Berlin city is. The best parts were in the old East Berlin. Prior to the wall coming down a trip to West Berlin would have been very disappointing as most of the best bits were on the communist side. If you go to Berlin looking for the Berlin wall you are going to be very disappointed as nearly all sections of it have been demolished and erased from the landscape. There are lots of hotels, motels and guest houses to suit all pockets. Traveling to Berlin is very easy. The Airport has its own railway station and you can travel to the heart of Berlin with ease. Try a coffee and marzipan filled croissants, whilst you are waiting for the train.
