Copenhagen, Berlin, Copenhagen

Our Summer holiday 2013 had a short break from the lovely Summer life in Oslo last week.
Our daughter and her family has taken over the cottage for some times, so we decided to do our traditional Copenhagen tour. The difference from our normal visits to the King´s city was that this time we added on some days in the German Capital, Berlin.
We moved by car because these two towns are easy reachable from Oslo, although it is boaring to drive on the "Autobahn" hours after hours if it is in Sweden, Denmark or Germany.
Our first day in Copenhagen includes always a Danish lunch "frokost-platte" at Nyhavn together with thousands of other tourists, many of them from Norway.
We have been in Berloin many times, but this was the first trip up to the Panorama view at Potsdamer Platz. From 25th floor you have a 360 degr. view of Berlin. Here you can see "Reichtag", Brandenburger Tor and the Holocaust Memorial in addition to the new apartment buildings replacing the security area from before the Berlin Wall was taken down.
Back in Copenhagen this photo show the "Gråbrødre Torv" (Greyfriars Square) with its buildings from the period after the Copenhagen fire in 1728.

We will always return to Copenhagen, but when going to Berlin, may be a plane will be chosen.
