David Bowie -
Looking for a vacation destination that combines Cold War history with rock and roll? If so, then Berlin - specifically West Berlin - has just what you're looking for. David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Depeche Mode, U2 and many more have all made albums here, and the interest of a hip new crowd of writers, artists, actors and directors is helping to revitalize the area. Tourists with an open agenda can visit Paris Bar or Neues Ufer; for those who prefer guidance and cushioned seating, Fritz Musictours Berlin may be the way to go. Your travel partner cares not for rock, you say? Don't worry - the New York Times and Lonely Planet offer plenty of suggestions to keep them busy while you explore the sights that helped form the sounds.
