Berlin, July 2010
Susanne and Franz are visiting Berlin and this is a good opportunity to do something I have not done before.
This time we will climb a 100 years old gas holder which is now a technical monument. And then we tried a new way riding two wheels: On a Segway.
is one of the two remaining gas holders in Berlin. In former time they were used to store city gas mainly used for heating and street illumination.
It is about 240 feet high and you need to climb more than 400 stair steps to get up there.
It was quite windy this day. The tour goes up and then the full circle around the construction.
First time on a Segway. There was a little briefing in the beginning and then we went through the very city of Berlin. There were two guides and 7 participants.
