Berlin was the capital of no less than seven different, sometimes even rival political systems: The principality of Brandenburg, the kingdom of Prussia, the German Empire, the Weimar Republic, the "Third Reich", German Socialism as well as contemporary reunified Germany. The last five periods took place within a single century - the twentieth, in which West Berlin remained, for two generations, occupied territory. Each of these periods, each political system, left its mark on the city, in different places, architecture and art. This makes Berlin a paradise for urban adventurers. As one of our guests – an architect – put it: “Berlin is like a shattered mirror. Although all its pieces lie on the same ground, next to each other, each piece shows a different picture.”
