Excerpt from Berlin Under the New Empire, Vol. 1: Its Institutions, Inhabitants, Industry, Monuments, Museums, Social Life, Manners, and Amusements

The aim the writer has had in View has been to convey an accurate idea - in small matters as well as great - of a city out of the regular highway of continental travel, and which, as the capital of the new German Empire, is destined to increase in interest to the other nations of Europe as well as to exercise a greatly extended in?uence over the rest of the Fatherland. There is an old proverb which says, Who has not seen Cologne has never seen Germany, but to-day the proverb has lost its significance, as it is no longer the city of the shrines of the Magi, and the eleven thousand martyred virgins, but the whilom capital of the little Mark of Brandenburg and the present chief city of the powerful German Empire which it is necessary a stranger should see. Of the great Germanic body, Berlin is to-day at once the head and the heart, for in all that relates to the new Empire, it is Berlin that thinks.
