    There is no shortage of water in Berlin! There are lakes everywhere and I was really surprised on my first trip to Berlin just how green and full of water it was.

    It is Mostly sand that Berlin is built on and therefore larger buildings do present their problems.

    You will always see large diameter pipes near building sites, crossing roads high overhead so that HGV traffic can pass without problem.
    This is purely to pump out the water when the foundations are dug until the foundations are complete the pumping is normally 24 hours a day.

    When you look at it all it is rather vulgar and very over the top - quite tasteless .
    The size of the dome , the avenues , the Victory Arch.
    Cities develop and have a soul he just transplanet his own world view and self glorification pure Hitler.

    The New Reichschancellery - a waste of money , grandeur and so called culture everything bigger , better louder and centred on Adolf Hitler.
    Makes you wonder had Germany not gone to war and when the Hitler bubble burst as it was bound to sooner or later just what would such a grand structure be used for today and how would it be viewed ?
    I think it would have been a reminder of a nation's folly and how things got so out of hand.
