    Hiking

    July 19, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    What would be a trip to the Black Forest without hiking?
    Today, we hiked with my dad a nice circular route on to the top and around the Belchen, in total about 10-11 miles (~16km). So so pretty! The sky was clear enough that on the top of the mountain we were able to see some of the Austrian and Swiss Alps, as well as over to France on the other side of the Rhein River.Read more

    On our last day we toured around with my friend Alex and her boyfriend Eike. After visiting the Hackeschen Höfe we went to the Flakturm, a tower of 85m height which is the roof of a bunker from WW2. Up there, we had a nice view over the north of Berlin.

    Berliner Mauer und geteilte Stadt / The Berlin Wall and the divided city.
    The theme for our second day was the Berlin Wall. We started the day at the Berlin Wall Memorial (Gedenkstätte Berliner Mauer), then went to the GDR Museum (DDR Museum). Afterwards we walked along the East Side Gallery which is the longest surviving stretch of the Berlin Wall. Then, we visited Checkpoint Charlie.
    We also went to the Bundeskanzleramt aka Merkel’s Party House.
    Berlin's history is so interesting!
