this Martin Luther Plaza has few of the statues of big great men scattered around, but if I understood correctly, these are new ones as the Allied bombings in the city in World War 2 completely destroyed all this.

I loved this sculpture, looks like the master is teaching the student, the grandfather is teaching the grandson. the master is teaching the apprentice. Lovely.

its brilliantly lighted and unfortunately there is a function going on inside so was not able to get inside.

Beautiful warm brick church, really lovely.

I just love the German language…Justice Ministry isn't as fun and impressive as Justizministerium…now that’s sonorous and grandiose.

I am now heading back to the hotel and passing that building which makes my hair hurt.
