City Guides: Berlin

To kick-off this new series of Google Map City Guides, here my recommendations for visiting Berlin, Germany. I lived in Berlin for 2-years from 2006-2008 after graduating with a Master's of Architecture degree. I worked for a couple of architecture offices there while exploring the city and enjoying life in the vibrant German capital. This map includes top museums, sightseeing, great architecture, recommended places to stay, and great places to eat and drink around the city. It also includes some places a bit outside the city center that would make great day trips. I've also asked some friends who still live in Berlin to add their favorite places as the city is constantly changing. If you have any recommendations on places to add leave a comment below. Enjoy!
