My mind is reeling with impressions of a vibrant, colourful and edgy city, with layer upon layer of history and meaning at every turn...
both very old and very new, though as a visitor it is hard to tell which is which as so many old buildings have been rebuilt after the bombings in the second World War.
Daniel Libeskind's vast Jewish Museum is an astonishingly expressive and emotional piece of art itself..
Though I found this tiny memorial in a pavement very moving.
Or more contrasts?
The Nolde Foundation exhibition was so beautiful, the sophistication and simplicity of the presentation if anything heightened the emotional content of Nolde's 'unpainted paintings' executed in secret when he was banned from painting by the Nazi's.
Have you been?
What were your impressions?
How long did it take you to recover?!
