    The day after

    September 30 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Tja, wie ist so der Tag danach? Also ich meine der Tag nach so einem langen Rennen.

    Wenig überraschend brauchte mein Körper ausgiebig Schlaf - und zwar gleich zwei Marathons lang. Und Kraftstoff. Das gab's in Form eines ausgiebigen Frühstücks (Tipp: solltet ihr mal in Berlin und dann in der Nähe von Friedrichshain nächtigen: Zimmer ohne Frühstück! Und dann rundum den Boxhagener Platz frühstücken gehen).

    Nachdem das Wetter sich weiterhin nicht freundlich zeigte, stand ein Besuch in einem Museum am Plan.

    Und auf dem Weg dorthin und im Museum triffst du viele Mitstreiter von gestern. Man trägt - zu Recht - stolz sein Medaille oder das Finisher-Leiberl zur Schau. Und so erkennst du sofort diejenigen, die zur Marathon-Familie gehören.

    Und dann gibt *das* Erkennungsmerkmal, dass du von weitem realisierst. Am Tag nach so einem Rennen wünscht du dir vor allem das die Rolltreppen funktionieren. Und zwar die, die hinunter führen. Weil beim Stiegenhinunter sieht dein Bewegungsablauf aus wie der einer Puppe an den Fäden einen Marionettespielers am Anfang seiner Karriere. So unrythmisch sahen nur die ersten Versuche japanischer Roboter der 80-er Jahre aus. Dazu erkennt man eine gewisse Anspannung in den Gesichtszügen. 😖

    Das Pergamon-Museum (ich hatte ja einen Plan) war den Weg allemal wert. Selbst, dass wegen Umbauten der berühmte Pergamonaltar derzeit nicht zu besichtigen ist, war zu verschmerzen. Alleine die Pracht des Ischtar-Tores aus Babylon ist überwältigend. 😍
    Anm: Die Umbauarbeiten sollen 2023 abgeschlossen sein. Unwahrscheinlich aber doch, gibt es dann schon die Möglichkeit über den BER einzureisen 😂

    Zum abendlichen Ausklang habe ich mir dann noch eine nächtliche outdoor Film- und Lichtprojektion zu Ehren des Reichtagsgebäudes angesehen - leider für euch - nur mehr bis 3. Oktober.

    Currywurst und bier

    September 6 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    After a late night arriving in Berlin we have had a lazy start to the German leg of the grand tour. To limit excessive walking for Emily, and Mad's achilles, we bought a ticket for the hop on hop off tourist bus. Taking in the sites in the sunshine with an audio tour was interesting, and we were able to get off at various points to explore more.
    Brunch near the Brandenburg gate was nice - naturally we had to try the metre of beer on offer, plus some sausages.
    The afternion led us to the Hard Rock Cafe, which is becoming something of a tradition when in foreign cities.
    Finally, our night was topped off with a superb meal at Maximillians restaurant where we feasted on traditional Bavarian dishes.

    Jewish memorial and Checkpoint Charlie

    July 20, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    The Jewish Memorial in Berlin is made up of nearly 3,000 concrete blocks representing the coffins/tombs of the Jewish people killed during the war. It's very difficult to capture the enormity of the memorial in a photo.

    Hello from Berlin, Germany

    July 18, 2017 in Germany ⋅ 🌙 18 °C

    Said goodbye to Copenhagen to fly to Germany. Staying in Berlin for 4 nights. Late afternoon when we arrived so had dinner and a walk around to the Brandenburg Gate which was in East Berlin before the wall between East and West came down in 1989. Parts of the wall can still be seen. Weather is much warmer here.Read more

    Berlin

    September 22 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Cómo estábamos cerca del barrio, aprovechamos de recorrer el memorial del muro de Berlín. Ahora es un parque con trazados donde hubo alguna vez torres de vigilancia, casas, túneles, algún intento de escape marcado en el suelo y hasta el mismo muro trazado con una reja simbólica o conservando algunos tramos originales.

    Luego fuimos a la estación de metro Nordbahnhof donde hay planos y fotos de estaciones "fantasmas" que fueron clausuradas durante el muro y utilizadas como vía de escape. Con al menos un caso exitoso.

    Luego recorrimos el barrio cívico dónde está el parlamento, un homenaje a los soldados soviéticos que detuvieron a los nazis, y varios edificios y monumentos: Bradenburger Tor, Bebelplatz, museo histórico alemán, universidad de los Humboldt, catedral de Berlín, Altes Museum, la pileta de Neptuno (aka Poseidón, aka Aquaman)

    También está el hotel Adlon donde Michael Jackson sacó a su hijo por la ventana.

    Caminamos luego por una avenida llamada "bajo los tilos" (Unter den Linden) , que a diferencia de la Alameda en Santiago, de verdad aún tiene tilos.

    Pasamos a la torre de televisión donde almorzamos, luego fuimos la Alexanderplatz. Que justo tenía su propia versión del oktoberfest. Allí conocí el berlin (dulce tipo donut) original, que acá se llama pfannkuchen.

    Terminamos el paseo en el Mauerpark donde artesanos y músicos muestran su arte. Ahí descubrí que el lúpulo crece por si sólo en los parques.

    Así cualquiera hace su propia cerveza 🤣

    Brandenburg Gate

    September 8, 2018 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    Despite Bernadette doing a very good imitation of a coma we eventually did wake up and get about for the day.

    First a quick look at what Berlin had to offer in regards to coffee with a little whole in the wall coffee and pastry shop next door.
    Had its own residence wasps in the display cases. We figure everyone has just given up and let them be.
    Trialled a capuchinno and a latte. Well maybe not the latte in the future. At least here you don’t get a bucket of milk to go with the coffee.

    Two tradies out the front had the German equivalent of a bacon and egg roll. Two boiled wurst (sausage), an unbuttered roll and mustard. It was 9:15 after all.

    Off to the Brandenburg Gate by U-Bahn (metro).

    Every other tour bus in Europe had drop off their passengers there so the platz was packed as they say in Germany.
    The good thing 15mins later they are all gone. It’s a bit like watching snow melt on a hot footpath.

    It’s very impressive and like a lot of things impossible to photograph although Mark did try in vain.

    Berlin - Brandenburg Gate

    October 22, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    We were at the Brandenburg Gate on a Sunday morning, and a stage was set up right outside the gate with some hip-hop artists singing something, people were carrying placards, rainbow flags waving. Haven’t been able to work out from Google Translate or the web what it was all about. I did read that parliament is reconvening on Tuesday... perhaps related?

    We had a currywurst for lunch, as promised, in view of the Brandenburg Gate.

    Amazing day

    September 4 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Amazing day!!!
    Out of Lassa’s house at 2pm... it’s a slow start on my holidays now :)
    So hungover. Stopped at a Thai curry for breakfast?! Lunch and a beer to stop processing what happened last night!
    Caught the U-Bahn to the river and onto a boat. German information but I had German beer and curry sausages. 27 degrees and beautiful breeze on the river. Berlin is gorgeous from the river!
    So much more beautiful than by the hop on off bus!
    We disembarked by some sunflowers and actually spent 30 minutes doing a photo shoot. Was so much fun actually and I discovered portrait view on my mobile hahaha
    Waved to the boat guy when he noticed the tip Lasse had left 😁
    Had a wonder in the wrong direction. Stella and Lasse do suck at directions!
    Made it to Segesäule and walked around that. I need a coke!
    Got one. Short walk to the bus station and caught it one stop back to the Segesäule. Told you they were bad.
    Ok on another bus and into to Brandenbuger Tor (gate). Walked to the Jewish monument. OMG. I loved it. The feelings you get looking at it and walking through what feels like growing coffins. Very reflective space and so quiet.
    We went into the Museum. Not a sound. So respectful from all who are there.
    So so happy to have been taken here!
