Berlin's newest tourist attraction, the Humboldt Box, left, is pictured on its opening day, Wednesday, June 29, 2011, next to the Berlin Cathedral. The futuristic box will sit for the next few years on a downtown square where a replica Prussian palace is to be built. The Humboldt Box rises some 92 feet (28 meters) above one end of the capital's Unter den Linden boulevard, opposite the neo-classical Museum Island complex. The roughly hexagonal silver-and-blue building offers spectacular views and hosts exhibitions on the planned palace, construction of which has been delayed as part of an austerity package.
