Big city with great museums and many reminders of memorials of terrible times that past. I prefer cute smaller towns. Lots of concret everywhere, city felt gloomy but still enjoyed visiting it once.

We only had 4 days. The airport-can be quite complicated: bus, train and tram to get to hotel. When you've got luggage that can be a pain. We're walkers and the flatness was appreciated. Watch the crossings - cars will zip around you.

5/5 - Excellent
