Germany's 10 most impressive boulevards
Political gathering point
Many demonstrations have been held over the years on Kurfürstendamm in Berlin, including during the student protests in 1968. After reunification in 1990, people thought the street, fondly known as Ku'damm, had lost its appeal, but today it has become a hot spot for tourists. The 3.5-kilometer boulevard was built in the late 19th-century as a prestige object of Chancellor Otto von Bismarck.
