Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site

Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site.  It is impossible to rate / review a site with such historical importance and emotional attachment.

Hotel i31 Berlin: Slight hiccups here and there, but in general a pleasant stay.

If you are looking to dine at good restaurants, Rutz Restaurant und Weinbar and Restaurant reinstoff are nearby.…

With luggages, one can take the tram like we did, a mere 2 stops from the HB. The room was spacious and clean except for a minor problem – an opened bottle of sparking water was left in the fridge (part of the minibar) which we informed…
