This German capital is a town, pulsing letterally day and night. In past, Berlin was one of main seats of Fuhrer Hitler, or a town with its fixed frontier between East and West. Nevertheless, you feel the history nearly on each step.
If you love traveling and exploring new and interesting places while you are in some city, go with us, at least for a while through a short article about one of the most beautiful German cities I've visited so far.

Wernigerode, a German town, is fun to see not only for fans of history, architecture, magical nature and hardcore fans of trains. There is a narrow railroad and also you can take a ride by steam train. The city is also called as “colorful city at Harz " (Die Bunte Stadt am Harz).
Berlin has become a center of art in Europe. It is a place where strong alternative culture has grown and is still growing. Its “tourist” side I know well already. I decided to see places where an ordinary tourist doesn’t go. Places with “vibe” and something interesting is happening there.

Eichstätt is a historical town on the Altmühl river in the center of Bavaria. Hills of the Altmühltal park surround it and there is absolute piece and good atmosphere. Perhaps it is due to the fact that it is cut from the outside world. It doesn’t lay near main railroads. You have to get of thee train in the middle of nowhere and get to the park by a regional train.
