Exploring Berlin's History, Culture, Politics and Business Life!
On Thursday and Friday we got to know Berlin better. Thursday was the fat tire bike tour where we saw many of the city's famous cultural and historical sights and learned more about Berlin's history. Friday we ventured out into Berlin's diverse neighborhoods and learned more about the challenge of managing the growth and stability of these neighborhoods since the wall came down 25 years ago. Both tours were deeply engaging and helped us understand how culture, history and business all intersect in Germany's capital city! Then on Saturday we visited the Reichstag - the building that houses Germany's version of congress (Bundestag). We again learned how history has shaped German politics which in-turn shapes German business!
