About a week ago I visited the beautiful capital of Germany with my family.
We arrived Saturday evening in Berlin after a long car ride. After checking in at our hotel we wandered a bit around looking for a place to eat. We saw a little piece of the wall. Eventually we ended up in an Italian restaurant.
While walking back to our hotel we saw this beautiful and impressive sunset over the railway.
Sunday morning we walked besides the wall. There were a lot impressive and political graffitis on the wall. Very interesting. I uploaded some to give you guys an impression.
We walked a lot and saw Checkpoint Charlie, an old watchtower, an expediton about the history of Berlin before the wall and also the Holocaust Monument. It was very impressive. We also went downstairs were you could read about what happened and families that didn’t survive it. It’s eye opening, especially because in school I mostly learned about what happened in my country and now I also read about how horrible it was in Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic.
We also visited the Brandenburger Tor, walked over Unter den Linden, the Reichstag and a big church. The highlights.
In the evening we ate a big schnitzel. You kind of have to….
On Monday we did a shopping day. Yesterday we walked the whole day, and we visited quit heavy and emotional monuments, we decided that today would be a metro and shoppingday.
We went to the big shopping street Kurfurstendamm. It reminded me a bit of the Champs Elysees, what my father later told me, was the intention. The street was full with expensive shop as Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Gucci etc. I just love it, eventhough I can’t afford it. Doens’t matter where I am, but I almost always find the desinger shops.
There was also this big warehouse called Kaufhaus des Westens. I may have bought something at Tiffanys and Co there…. Audrey Hepburn was there too so…..
When I had spend all my money we walked to the Siegessäule. It was possible to get inside and walk all the stairs up to, where you had an amazing view.
In the evening we had dinner at an Italian restaurant again.
On Tuesday we went to the Hackesche Höfe, a cute little place with small shops inside. After some walking around we had lunch at an Asian restaurant where they had delicious Thai, Vietnamese and Chinese food.
We also went to the Museum Island and to some churches. Being cultural.
In the afternoon we visited Alexander Platz, where we shopped a little and had curry wurst with fries as dinner.
Wedneday it was time to go back home. We quickly visited Potsdam, where we had a delicious lunch and walked around a bit. After that it was time for the very long car ride again.
Berlin was very lovely. It was very educational, interesting and impressive. There is a lot to see and to learn. It impressed me a lot.
Hope you have a lovely day!
