You must have been coming from communist Poland during your earlier visit? I didn't try to see East Germany and was no where near. But I remember reading there was a stark comparison between the east and west. After reunification, rebuilding the east was/is a severe drain on the overall German economy. I want to return and see much more of the country.
I was in West Germany (GDR?) in and around Stuttgart. The reason I went there was because I owned a 911 at the time and the "Porschefabrik" was there. Unfortunately, the factory tours were shut down because they were retooling to produce the 928. I had no interest in MB at the time or might have realized that's where their famous museum is too!
