From the 11th to the 15th of April 2012 GLOW is organizing
the INET 2012 Annual Conference.
This year’s “Paradigm Lost: Rethinking Economics and Politics” conference
reflects on INET’s dedication to inspiring and provoking new economic thinking.
The INET 2012 Annual Conference take place in the capital city of Germany,
Berlin! Berlin is Germany’s largest city
and is the second most crowded city proper and the seventh most populous urban
area in the European Union.
We at GLOW, love Berlin! Berlin is a huge, fascinating city, but lacks a
real Old Town-type area. Attractions are quite distant, so plan your route and
get familiar with the excellent public transportation. Here are 10 of the most
popular sightseeing’s of Berlin:
~ The East Side Gallery is the
longest remaining piece of the Berlin Wall and is a memorial to freedom of the
~ Checkpoint Charlie is the famous border crossing between East and
West Berlin, where American and Russian military stood against each other after
the creation of the Berlin wall on August 13, 1961.
~ The Holocaust memorial is dedicated to the memory of the thousands
of Jews murdered during World War II.
~ The inspiring neo-renaissance Reichstag building, situated in Berlin,
was finished in 1894 and is today the place of the German government.
~ The Pergamon Museum is situated on the Museum Island. The museum is subdivided into the olden day’s collection, the Middle East museum, and the museum of Islamic art.
~ The Tiergarten is Berlin’s major city park, and one of the largest
in Europe. At first designed as a hunting ground for the rulers of Brandenburg,
it is now enjoyed by thousands of Berliners every day.
~ Potsdamer Platz, damaged during World War 2 and left isolated
during the Cold War, is one of the central hubs of Berlin.
~ The Brandenburg Gate is the last left over gate that in medieval times would have been used to enter the city. It is one of Berlin’s most important landmarks, and a symbol of the city.
~ Castle Charlottenburg was originally projected as the summer home for Sophie Charlotte who was the wife of King Friedriech I. Its original size was much smaller than the building we see today. Over more than a few decades, extra wings and embellishments were added to the structure. It is now one of the most grand and large palaces in the
