Thanks for the enthusiasm!

The German "Reichstag"...

An old friend of the Peace Run, Dr. Karl A. Lamers, member of the German "Bundestag", Deputy Chairman of the Defence Committee of the German Parliament and the Vice-President of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, welcomed our runners.

Dr. Lamers received the Peace Torch already several times and greeted us once more with kind words.

...a quick group picture....

...and a few symbolic steps for peace. Thank you for the heartfelt meeting!

...running in the real centre of Berlin...

...the "Brandenburger Gate" was greeting us...

...a brief visit to the "room of silence" in the Brandenburger Gate. It is already a good tradition for us to pay a visit everytime the Peace Run comes to Berlin. Thank you for the relaxing moments!
