East Berlin is filled with a certain type of building called the Plattenbau. It was the East Germans' answer to the housing problem after WWII. These Communist architectural "jewels" still stand and many have yet to be renovated. One of the few attractive features of these buildings is the view, as most of them are highrises. Let's take a tour through one and soak in the past.

Here is this year's festivities.
