Berlin to Copenhagen, Denmark

Berlin's central train station was quite impressive. The top floor is enclosed entirely by glass, the second floor consisted largely of food stores, restaurants, and even a full grocery store, and the lowest level was where the trains passed through. Very organized...
even there trash is organized. This is a typical trash can in Europe -- they take their recycling quite seriously.
We traveled by train from Berlin to Copenhagen. Here our train (three cars long) is loaded onto a ferry to travel from Germany to Copenhagen, which is located on an island. I was quite fascinated by the process.
The train tracks extend right onto the ferry; we were surrounded by large trucks for the 45 min trip.
We got off the train to have a look about the ferry boat, but after facing the choice between the brisk outdoor winds or the cigarette-smoke-filled interior, we returned to our train car, which was warmer and cozier than outdoors....
and certainly fresher than indoors.
