At Doorsan we have an external door called the Berlin, which is an Oak door featuring four Double Glazed vision panels. This is a popular modern design and there is a complementary sidelight available as well as a Part "L" compliant door in the same style.
This has inspired me to write about the city of Berlin, which I visited with my partner a few years ago for a weekend city break. Berlin is the capital city of Germany and it is a popular city for tourists with an interesting mix of architectural sites and museums worth a visit. The Brandenburg Gate is a well known landmark, which sits outside the city centre. Despite being heavily populated, the city has large forest areas as well as rivers and if you like a walk (or a cycle) there are various opportunities to get out of the bustle of the busy centre. Bikes are available to hire and replace all over the city.
If you like to take in a good view, I would recommend the Reichstag, which is the main parliament building. It is free to enter and gain access to the roof, but you have to book in advance. If you are interested in the historical highlights there is an audio tour available but simply taking in the view was fine for us.
We enjoyed the food during our visit including the German sausages which is pretty much an obligatory meal when in Berlin.
Of course no Blog about Berlin would be complete without mention of the famous Berlin Wall. It was erected in 1961 by the East German Government to stop people from fleeing to the West. The wall finally came down in 1990 although the official date recognised as the "fall" was in November 1989.
The most interesting and door related fact is that there was a secret door in the wall which allowed people to pass from the East to the West and vice versa!
At Doorsan we make no secret of our Berlin door or any other that we supply, we are ready and able to answer any questions you have regarding timber doors!
