DAY SEVEN: THE PULSE OF BERLIN
Welcome back to the last day of our journey. The time has come to say goodbye to Berlin. But before we leave the city, we want to enjoy the pulse of Berlin to the fullest.
Thus, we discover Berlin’s former west-center and, there, the beautiful boulevard Kurfürstendamm. The Brandenburg Gate and its surrounding area are, of course, one part of the heart of Berlin. However, the other half of Berlin’s heart is the so-called Ku’damm. It belongs to the most important places in the city. Here, you can stroll along the boulevard to have fun while shopping or discovering nature. Moreover, the here located Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church is another popular symbol of Berlin.

CUTE ANIMALS & COMMITTED CONSERVATION OF SPECIES
There are good reasons to think about zoos in a critical way. Together with Emilie, however, we had the pleasure of being guided by Dr. Tobias Rahde through the Berlin Zoo. The sympathetic biologist, who is responsible for the birds and the protection of species in the zoo, has given us a deeper insight into the work and the importance of the park.
So, visit with us the cute meerkats, pandas and the sea lions. Moreover, learn more about animal conservation and preservation from page 64.
FROM THE ROOTS TO MODERN STYLES OF JAZZ
The pulse of Berlin has a special rhythm. It comes from all kinds of music, also Jazz. Thus, follow us to the cozy Zig Zag Club to learn more about jazz. Besides, feel invited to listen to a jam session of Dimitris Christides, who is the owner of the club, and Jens Fischer Rodrian. Do you remember that guy?
We met the art director of the Blue Man Group on the first day of our Berlin journey high up in the Panoramapunkt. As you will see, he is also a great jazz musician.
THE LAST DINNER
Hopefully, restaurants and bars can reopen soon. Of course, in line with the new Corona pandemic rules.
In times like this, we especially remember Emilie’s last dinner in the wonderful Duke Restaurant, which is located in the Ellington Hotel. Experience together with Emilie one of the finest diners in Berlin, before we close the Berlin chapter.
The pulse of Berlin is caused by people. Thus, we want to thank all our friends, who let us dive deeper into Berlin’s heart and soul. First of all, the biggest thanks go to Emilie Pesch for her honesty, critic, extraordinary talent, great commitment, endless support, and true friendship.
Of course, the same big thanks go to our complete team: the VALEUR GUIDES.
Belinda Rufa +++ Lucia Razza +++ Soluna Kokol +++ Yana Miradshi +++ Katharina Wolfert +++ Olivia Jorda +++ Jil Greimann +++ Bella Neulist +++ +++ Amelia Young +++ Dina Bécane.

7 DAYS IN…
We, the VALEUR GUIDES, are a group of friends who discover many different places under the motto: ONE WORLD. A goal is to meet people with exciting stories to tell.
Thereby, we will discover new places for 7 days each. From there, we will present seven intensive, emotional and entertaining video episodes about people with exciting stories to tell. Furthermore, we will deal with their place’s culture, traditions, history, lifestle, art, leisure activities and, thus, many values.
Additionally, we will present more stories and facts in supplementing issues of the VALEUR MAGAZINE.
