Berlin is poor and tourism is its main source of revenue. No wonder that a big Hall at the ITB was dedicated to the wonder city of Central Europe. There are a lot of reasons to love the city and many other reasons to can't wait to leave it. However, there it is a high concentration of bright mind and wonderful expats ready to use their energies to live here, even underemployed and underpaid. Their ideas help to build up the city and attract more and more talented brains from all over the world and Germany.
I loved the Pavilion of Berlin because it looks as Berlin: dynamic, cool, with many ideas and projects, that even if not achieved - think about the Airport - no one will get angry on him for that. The main companies, shops - Kaufhof Alexanderplatz among them - and cultural institutions were represented, with possibilities to book tickets on the spot.
