Getting up at 4am to catch the first train from Berlin to Munich was never going to be easy, but this view from Berlin Ostbahnhof as the sun started to rise over the train tracks, lighting up the industrial east, suddenly made it seem worthwhile. Ostbahnhof (which translates to East Station) was initially opened in 1842, but has undergone a number of rebuilds since, including by the GDR in 1950, and then again in 2002 after German reunification.
