"My husband and I stayed at the Marriott Hotel which is built half on the post-war East side and the other half on the West side. It was in the middle of winter with snow everywhere but strangely enough though there is so much history of the 2nd World War which is why we went there I fell in love with Berlin. You will be amazed how multi-cultural Berlin now is. Sky-scapers crop up in most of the city and you need to look around for the pre-war buildings to get a feel of old Berlin. The city is buzzing and after havng spoken to a cafe owner (who is French and lived in London for 12years) he decided to move to Berlin as the city is new and good prospects for new businnesses. It is as if the city is being reborn. I found that sad as they are ashamed of their history and yet trying to hold on to the history that has some positive story behind it. The people are simply wonderful and helpful people and pretty obvious in need of foreign investment. You will notice there are still more projects that are in need of financing but for whatever reason not moving ahead as quick as they want it to - there are signs of that in the rest of the city where buildings are just taking too long to complete (according to speaking to some of the learned locals). Wanting to get to venture into an read where local Berliners go to we ventured out to a rather rough area of Berlin we decided to walk into a local pub and ordered Steins of their local beer. It was really lovely and the locals are very polite and warm and welcoming. We ordered our local German pub dinner,etc, etc and the whole meal costed us approximately £25. Frankly I feel that Berlin is under-rated. On our way back at midnight we came across neon lights that said "Happy Hour" - Australian bar. Happy days!!! That "Happy Hour" was actually Happy 4hours and the cocktails were on offer at £2 per glass and we had a choice of 150 different types of cocktails to choose. We tried around 30 different types each. As the street we empty by 3:30am we managed to stagger back to our hotel in one piece. Highly recommended. I will be going back to Berlin in the near future."

"Lost in the abandoned East Berlin, you must find your way to the enemy base, rescue the secret files and escape to the border before sunrise. Is this really in the middle of Berlin? Where's everyone else?"
