Photographs of German cities and sites: I have lived for some time in Berlin in the past, and have travelled quite frequently to various other places. One of the things I like about Germany is that there are many cities and towns with their proud histories that are often reflected in the architecture.

Berlin

The capital of the reunited Germany, and a city that is constantly changing, and every single time I visit, there is something new and something has changed.
