A Shot in the Rain: Berlin, Germany
Best known as the city divided after the Second World War by the conquerors, by doctrine and by a big ugly wall designed to keep the residents on the East from defecting to the West, Berlin is doing its best to regain its pre-war position as an international capitol. Revamped palaces, shiny new world-class museums, architecture from the middle ages through the iron curtain to the new age, clubbing from funky to chic to A-list-only and of course plenty for shoppers from come-as-you-are outdoor flea markets to look-but-don’t-touch designer boutiques.
Sitting outside in a Biergarten, dining at an outdoor restaurant on the Gendarmemarkt, a river cruise on the Spree or a walking tour of the historic Nikolei Quarter are all great things to do in Berlin on a clear day. But with an average of 13 days of rain per month, there’s a good chance that if you stay a couple days in Berlin you might run into a few showers.
