We saw a wedding in a shopping mall here... interesting but not too romantic. They also have a liquid clock in the center of the mall, but that's about as interesting as the mall got. There is also interesting Ice cream in Germany as well as beer, pretzels and sausage. Yes, interesting ice cream as it's made to look like a breakfast or a paint palate or some other weird thing, shaped. Very yummy. They also have very good sweets here, gummy bears inside smartie shells is my husband's favorites. The interesting things to look for that you might over look are the nicks in the walls of East Berlin where Soviet rule was. Those gouges in the walls are from bullets.

Go to museum island and on the way you see a lot of them. There are also chunks of the wall standing around the city to remind people. It's a wonderful place to visit. The food's good, the people are super and the history cant be beat. The Check Point Charlie museum is cool with all sorts of Berlin wall knowledge as well as stories of escapes from the East side. The other museums, the ones around Museum island in particular are really good. There is also a small street market that sets up to the side in that area. We had a fab time and stayed in the SwissHotel which was in a great spot and 4 stars I think? The service was fantastic and Jim got a chocolate bar on his pillow every night which made him happy, we also bumped into the hotel owner who was super nice to us and really seemed to like compliments over his hotel, good guy (we didn't know it was him till later). Germany itself is awesome and we're planning to go to Nuernberg for the Christmas Market this year
