Baltic Cruise: Berlin

The cruise ship moored at Warnemunde, in what used to be East Germany (DDR) and the station is alongside the dock (or vice versa). We had a pleasant ride through rural areas to Berlin, where we were given an introduction to the city on a fleet of tour buses. Trams had been banished from the Western sectors of the city, but were retained in the Easter sector.
