Strasse des 17. Juni – In A Berlin Minute (Week 133)

Strasse des 17. Juni (17th of June Street) is a large avenue through the heart of Berlin.

It starts in the East at the Brandenburger Tor (Brandenburg Gate), runs through Tiergarten (animal park), passing the Sowjetisches Ehrenmal (Soviet War Memorial), circling around the Siegessaeule aka Goldelse (Victory Column), going under the Tiergarten S-Bahn train station, crossing over the Charlottenburger Tor (Charlottenburg Gate), cutting through the campus of Technische Universitaet (Technical University), where I once studied Psychology for 2 days before I dropped out to move to America and study film, and ends at Ernst-Reuter-Platz.

East of Brandenburger Tor the street is called Unter den Linden, west of Ernst-Reuter-Platz it is called Bismarckstrasse. 

The street was named after the workers’ uprising in East Germany on June 17th, 1953.

The music is a slightly sped up instrumental version of the song “Hell Came For Breakfast” by Jason Matherne. Check out his music on Soundcloud (free downloads).
