Hundreds of thousands of revelers packed Berlin's "fan mile," a 1.3 kilometer stretch of road running from the west of the capital up to the Brandenburg Gate, for a huge party.Young and old fans alike were decked out in Germany shirts, many with their faces painted black, red and gold and with wigs and bandanas in the national colors.A black open-roofed bus drove the players, who jumped, screamed, waved and held up the golden World Cup trophy, through the streets of Berlin at a snail's pace for about 2-1/2 hours.The success of the national team since 2006, when Germany hosted the World Cup, is widely seen as having helped Germans take greater pride in their nationality.Berlin Mayor Klaus Wowereit welcomed the team in the capital and the players signed the city's roll of honor.
