Exactly a year ago, elections took place in Berlin. Back then, a major chaos caused serious problems. According to Berlin's Constitutional Court, an election rerun is justified. A final decision is pending.
The 48th Berlin Marathon took place on Sunday. Eliud Kipchoge managed to finish it in record time. More than 40,000 slower runners did a great job too. Both the weather and the mood in Berlin were awesome.
On Sunday, 45,000 people will take part in the Berlin Marathon. Even more Berliners and visitors are expected to root for the runners. The excitement level is on the rise already. Traffic restrictions have to be expected during the entire weekend.
There were times when car-free days really were car-free. Not anymore. But Berlin will not require tickets for its public transport on Thursday. And a few streets are supposed to be closed to motorized traffic.
