Where I'd Rather Be


Currently about 57 F, 17:30PM. Want to see what it's like right now? Check this out -- The view is northeast, from the Historical Museum, over the Spree and the Palace Bridge, across the Museum Insel towards Alexanderplatz. The Berliner Dom on the left, Berliner Rathaus in the background, and the big white tube beyond the Dom is the base of the Fernsehturm.

Not sure what the covered construction cube in the foreground is about -- possibly the beginning of the reconstruction of the Hohenzollern palace, damaged during WW2 and later demolished, rebuilding for which was just approved by the Berlin City council last year.
