BERLIN, GERMANY - OCTOBER 27: A knight lifts his sword to challenge another in a performance with a Middle Ages theme in front of Marienkirche church during celebrations marking the 775th anniversary of the city of Berlin on October 27, 2012 in Berlin, Germany. Celebrations are continuing over the weekend and will culminate in a fire presentation by the French fire performers Carabosse on Sunday. The settlement of Coelln, which stood opposite Berlin on the Spree river, is first referred to in a document from 1237, and by the beginning of the 14th century Coelln and Berlin joined together to become the region's most important trading center.
