The famous modern roof of the Sony Center. I think it looks great in black and white. Photo taken in November 2011.

The bear has always been the symbol of Berlin and all over the city you'll find these decorated bears. Usually they are decorated in a sponsor company's colors or something of that sort, but this one is pretty special. You'll see the Lady Liberty Bear at the American Embassy just off Pariser Platz in the heart of the city. I think she's pretty cool! Photo taken in November 2011.

Inside the Akademie der Kuenste on the Pariser Platz. I love these stairways, they remind me of and M.C. Escher design or something out of Harry Potter. Photo taken in November 2011. To see more monochrome, take a look at the Weekend in Black and White.

The House of the Cultures of the World is affectionately known to Berliners as the Pregnant Oyster. The building was used as a convention center when East and West were divided. Now it's used for art exhibitions and performances. Normally there is a shallow reflecting pool around that sculpture, but it had already been drained for the winter when I was there.

Like many other cities, Berlin has jumped on the city bike bandwagon. For a small annual fee, you get access to rental bicycles all around the city. I think it's a great way to get around, especially in a bike-friendly city like Berlin! Photo taken in November 2011. If you'd like to see more red shots from around the world, visit Ruby Tuesday.

That skinny building with the circle cut-out is the German Chancellery building. This is where the famed Angela works. Word has it, she has a private apartment in there too for the late nights. Must be nice! Photo taken in November 2011.
PS: I'm moving on from the Reichstag, but if you'd like to see the modern glass dome, just click on the link!

You'll find this memorial near the Reichstag in Berlin. It remembers the left and centrist politicians who were murdered or sent to concentration camps for their beliefs during the rise of the Nazi party. Photo taken in November 2011.

Here's a closer look at some of the details on the Reichstag in Berlin. I gave you the full frontal view earlier this week. I think it's funny the way they've incorporated a lamp into the sculpture here. Funny and fitting! Photo taken in November 2011.
