* If you're at an airport, you're definitely not in the eastern half. East Berlin's airport was built at Schönefeld, outside the city limits; since reunification, it has been expanded into the modern Berlin-Brandenburg International Airport. The Tegel airport, built in the French sector at the time of the Berlin Airlift, was supposed to have closed years ago, but remains open for the moment. Tempelhof, Berlin's original airport, was closed in 2008. The small military airfield at Gatow, which lies near the city's western limits, was a [[UsefulNotes/BritsWithBattleships Royal Air Force]] base for nearly five decades after UsefulNotes/WorldWarII; the [[UsefulNotes/WeAreNotTheWehrmacht Bundeswehr]] took it over in 1994, but have since then mostly operated it as a museum.

* If the little men on the traffic lights (known as Ampelmännchen) are wearing [[NiceHat hats]], you are very likely to be in the eastern half. However, this method is somewhat hit and miss.

However, this method is somewhat hit and miss.miss, since the Eastern version was seen as [[RuleOfCool cooler]] and has even been adapted in many German cities, so you find the one or other in the western half.

With the [[HoleInFlag political climate in the world changing]], Berlin got directly affected. The Berlin Wall became obsolete when the GDR opened its borders to the West on November 9, 1989. Less than a year later, Berlin once again became the capital of a [[UsefulNotes/TheBerlinRepublic (re-)united Germany]]. But it had yet to take until 1999 until the all-German government and parliament finally moved back to Berlin (post-war and pre-unification, the capital of West Germany had been Bonn, in case you're wondering) and during much of TheNineties, Berlin was dubbed as the biggest construction site of Europe.

Due to its special "four power state", West Berlin was not officially part of WestGermany, though it was treated like another German state as far as possible. This also meant that West German conscription didn't apply to West Berlin, making it a haven for draft dodgers from "the provinces".
