Photo Tour: Potsdamer Platz, Berlin

The former East Berlin is rebuilding itself from the ruins of the second World War. It's also putting up a lot of completely new buildings -- like these at Potsdamer Platz. It's a totally new area, designed by some of the world's best architects, that (as you can see from the first photos below) is coming up quickly. In fact, the balloon is there to take people up for a few minutes to see the latest (for a price that, I hear, is almost as high as the viewpoint: about 20 euros for ten minutes).
