Some Highlights of Berlin

Samba Syndrom is a festival celebrating samba groups from across Europe, held at Berlin's Landesmusikakademie.
The Berlin-Müggelberge TV tower is the 31 meters tall base of a tower, never completed, in the Müggel hills of southeast Berlin, Germany. The tower base is currently used as radio relay link station.

The tower was originally planned as the TV tower for Berlin. It was to have a total height of 425 feet (130 meters) with an observation platform at 230 feet (70 meters).

After construction was started in 1954, a survey indicated that the tower would endanger aircraft on approach to the Berlin-Schoenefeld airport. For this reason, on 13 December 1955 construction was stopped The Victory Column: A 220-foot column topped with a gilt statue of the Goddess of Victory. It is located in the middle of the Tier-garten, a beautiful park in pre-war Berlin, which was almost completely destroyed during the war. Replanting was begun in 1949.
