I love stuff Teddy Bears and I found a very close connection when I was in Berlin on my Germany trip. Not far away from Brandenburg Gate I was welcomed by this fun Berlin Bear. They are ambassadors promoting tolerance and living together in peace all over the world now.
|Even the Berlin Bears need rain gear!|
"The bear has become the symbol of Berlin. Especially the Berlin Buddy Bears. People find all over Berlin. Buddy Bears are colorful, cheerful bears with their arms stretched up high. They have become Berlin's symbol for tolerance and "Weltoffenheit" (world openness)." description from Wikipedia
With the Buddy Bears, the centuries-old heraldic animal of Berlin took on a new shape and adopted a new role: The bears are a cheerful welcome for Berliners and their guests as well as ambassadors promoting tolerance and living together in peace all over the world.
Additional historic information is found at The Bear - the Symbol of Berlin.
