|Looking into East Berlin from the Victoria tower|
We also visit a history museum in the old Reichstag building, kind of boring, not nearly as much fun as the one in the East! An interesting exhibit is a collection of Deutsche mark notes from the 1920s, when Germany experienced hyperinflation and developed a sort of paranoia for expansionist monetary policies that will last many decades.
One billion mark notes seem small change. I am struck by the two hundred billion mark bank note! That's serious money!
