    Still Berlin...

    May 27, 2018 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    On the second day in Berlin, we used the day card to go around the city and see the city from inside. Actually, this was the plan, but we ended up walking as much as the day before. The previous day there was a demonstration in Unter den Linden (about the lack of kindergartens in Germany - and Hitler's parade Avenue was closed. On the second day, the demonstrations went on (about racism and immigrants), this time in Tiergarten - the great city park - and we walked around the loud caravans to reach Reichstag building by the end of the day and see the panoramic view from its top. It is an amazing thing you can do in Berlin for free ;). Besides this, we visited the Olympic Stadium area, Charlottenburg Castle, passed by the Victory Column, Bellevue Palace - residence of the President -, the Philarmonic building with its tentlike roof and the Sony building with the breakfast room of the Esplanada Hotel - a memory of a luxury hotel before WW2 - within the glass walls that protects it from falling apart. Also "funny" is the way they left the Emperor William Memorial Church. It was severely damaged during WW2 and they only made sure that the ceiling of the ground floor was kept in a way that you can feel how splendorous it was, but they didn't rebuild the outside and you can have an idea of how the city looked like after the war. We had dinner on East Side gallery, not before taking a stroll along the remains of the Wall... We couldn't go to the hotel before visiting Checkpoint Charlie... It was our second and last day in Berlin...Read more

    Linie 100

    August 20, 2016 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Nach einem leckeren Frühstück im "Milch und Zucker" fuhren wir mit der S Bahn ( in Berlin Schnellbahn genannt 🤔) zum Bahnhof Zoo, ich war doch sehr erstaunt wie sich die Stadt in den letzten 5 Jahren, da war ich das letzte mal hier, verändert hat. Dort stiegen wir in die Linie 100, diese Buslinie fährt an allen Sehenswürdigkeiten der Hauptstadt vorbei und man kann überall wo man will ein und wieder zusteigen. Der Reichstag, das Brandenburger Tor, Hotel Adlon. .. Immer wieder sehr beeindruckend für mich.Read more
