Experience the fascinating world of panoramic photography with the "City Panoramas 36O " series, which presents the world's most beautiful cities. With a panoramic view, you can enjoy the famous sights of a city at a glance. In this volume, Falk Eisleben captures the flair of the colourful, historic capital of Germany. Pariser Platz, Gendarmenmarkt, Kurfurstendamm, Bebelplatz, Alexanderplatz, Potsdamer Platz and many other squares reflect the multitude of architectural styles and the city's quality of life. Berlin's fast pace, temperament and turbulence are more than characteristics of a city -- they signify a unique attitude towards life in general. Elegant boulevards in exclusive districts give way to prefabricated buildings of the former East Berlin. Affluence, glamour and quality of life are just as much part of the famous "Berlin air" as poverty and military regime. "You need hair on your teeth and a certain roughness to survive in Berlin", observed Goethe, who was certainly none too delicate himself, while the poet Jean Paul said that "Berlin is more a part of the world than a city". They are both right.
