Now that I'm in Berlin, I will check out trains on the Berlin Outer Ring railway (Außenring) that was built by DDR to bypass West Berlin.
Priort station is where I'll start
I have already seen a few Euroduals here in Germany, but not these two

Mahnmal Ewige Flamme

One of the longest streets in Berlin is formed by Unter den Linden, Straße des 17. Juni, Bismarckstraße and Kaiserdamm
Before 1953, Straße des 17. Juni was called Charlottenburger Chaussee because it ran from the old city center (Berlin-Mitte) to the borough of Charlottenburg through the Tiergarten. The 1953 name change was made in order to honor an East German uprising and its victims. After Stalin's death, many East Berliners began a strike which also caused riots in the vain hope of getting rid of the communists. But the East German police struck back with brutal violence on 17 June 1953. (Wikipedia)

The street is perfect for a bicycle ride

Berlin has so rich history
