KREUZBERGED BERLIN

Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin

QUOTE OF THE DAY

 
“Berlin streets are the city´s and not the state´s responsibility. Such is the rule. But to this rule there are endless exceptions. Since the Kaiser stands above the Town Planning Inspectors, nothing can be undertaken in Unter den Linden without his consent.”
 
For that reason Unter den Linden never got any tram line built along the boulevard. The Kaiser said “Nein!”:-)
