Set at waist height, information about the area's landmarks is provided both in Braille and standard script, and judging by the fact that its surfaces have been polished by countless inquisitive fingers, this alternative city map has proved both useful and intriguing to many Berlin visitors.

Remember that saying about small things counting the most? Sometimes, of course, it's absolutely true.
