KREUZBERGED BERLIN

Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin

WHEN THE QUEEN COMES TO TOWN

On May 18th, 1965 – twenty years after the end of WW2 – Queen Elisabeth II visited Berlin and took a short ride around the western part. For obvious reasons it was to be the only part of the city she, even being royalty, was allowed to visit.

Here is a film recording of the main moments, including the arrival at the Olympia Stadion and the meeting with Berlin´s hottest Mayor in history. Alas, Her Majesty remained majestically unimpressed.
