Before we got on our trip to Berlin, we took a trip to Palace Sanssouci.
In Bavaria there are numerous castles, but I’ve never seen one that is as huge as Sanssouci Palace.
Even the gardens are huge and it took six hours until we had seen a part of it.
In the next few weeks so there is a glimpse of Sanssouci Palace.
The following pictures show the main palace and the kitchen of palace.
Have a look at Menthe Blanche and her Monday Trip.
During our trip to Berlin, we visited two photo exhibitions.
The first Exhibition displays photographs by Fritz Eschen (1900 – 1964),
a brilliant observer and photographer of the postwar period.
The photographs in this exhibition show the time after the World War II, when Berlin was in ruins.
They show removal of the debris and rebuilding, survivors, artists, strollers, lovers and children especially.
They show the misery, but also the life “after”.
Impressive and superb photographs in black / white.
All photographs by Fritz Eschen.
