You must hire Alex to take you on a bicycle tour. He will show you many many things that were not part of the traditional walking tour. A different side of Berlin. It was great.

It was an unexpected museum, behind the Hackischer Hoefe. We were very impressed by what Otto Weidt had done for the Jewish blind.

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The

I'm afraid I will haveto disappoint you. There's no press in this small museum. But lots of other remarkable things that make a visit worthwhile.
