Berlin – Rebirth of Cool

After 30 years of stagnation, the German capital’s real estate market has re-ignited. In fact, it’s been singled out as one of Europe’s top cities for property investment. We report on how Berlin got its mojo back.

It’s becoming a place where people want to live, tourists want to visit, and where commerce wants to do business.

As Prime Minister Cameron dashed for the exit, Croatia clinched an agreement to become the 28th member of the European Union.
