Yes I have but all your comments are still right on. Except that I liked the Jewish Museum much more when it was empty. We spent a lot of time at the historic museum on Unter den Linden and it was just remarkable!

I now realize that you have been to Berlin before, sorry about this!

It took me some time to go to Berlin although I don't live far away and I ony visited three years ago. I actually loved it. It feels much more povincial than Paris (don't be mistaken, I enjoy Paris too) and each district has a particular feel.

If you have never been there, DON'T miss the Jewish museum. It is absolutely fantastic and you can easily spend hours there.

In fact I have the impression that Germany accepts its past and its responsibilities in the Shoah much more than Austria does. When you walk the streets of Berlin, you are constantly reminded that Jewish families lived there and that they were exterminated by the Nazi regime.

Nothing like that in Austria where the people seem to forget that they cheered when the Germans invaded their country, that they never batted an eyelid when the Jews were deported and that a number of Austrians ranked high in the Nazi party and administration.
