    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

    Wednesday!

    August 17, 2016 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Another day, another immense amount of walking around.

    Tessa had us booked in for breakfast at the restaurant cafe on top of the Reichstag for the morning so we took the opportunity to have a nice walk from the Brandenburg Gate. We had a look at some of the remaining sections (or replaced sections) of the Berlin Wall and walked through the Holocaust memorial.

    Breakfast at the Reichstag was lovely, with some sausages, pretezels and beer on the menu for me and a three egg omelette for Tessa. We walked up the glass dome for a lovely view of Berlin.

    Next stop was the German Museum of Technology which we rushed around in about 45 minutes but we could have spent hours there. Ships, aeroplanes, trains, windmills, it had it all.

    After catching up for lunch with a friend [*TESSA* a great old friend and housemate, Elise who is living an enviable cool life in Berlin and who we get to see again before we go], we made our way to the Jewish Museum (and thereby getting full value for our Museum Pass which provides free entry for various museums in Berlin) which details the history of the Jews in Germany.

    We wandered the streets for a while, slowing at the kitsch and overcrowded Checkpoint Charlie and generally taking in the atmosphere while avoiding being skittled by the thousands of bike users in Berlin and finished the day with a world-famous curry wurst (basically a sausage cut up, doused in ketchup and curry powder). Was pretty good actually!

    Reischtag

    August 17, 2016 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    *TESSA* This morning we breakfasted at the Reischtag dome. Apart from a mistaking lard for mashed potato, the experience was faultless. The view was particularly romantic.

    Berlin - Reichstag Building

    September 24, 2015 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Squeezing in one last thing in Berlin, we managed to get an evening tour into the dome of the Reichstag, Germany's parliament building. It's a very neat metal and glass dome with a spiral ramp running up the inside (Vel would love it). It gives some amazing views over the city but also serves to let/reflect natural light down into the main parliament chamber below. If it's too bright, there's a rotating sun shield (visible in #3).

    Because I didn't know about this far enough beforehand, we had to wait in line earlier in the day for about an hour to get tickets :( You can book online but you have to book about a month in advance.

    Oh also on our way in and out we went past Brandenburg Gate again, where they had a giant head-balloon of (I think) Merkel. Of course?

    Berlin

    April 12, 2018 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 70 °F

    4/12 Off to the East Side Gallery (Berlin Wall art). Mastering the S Bahn and the U Bahn for travel. The graffiti has been significantly cleaned up since I saw last in 2013. Enjoyed the walk and the art. Then walked through the Friedrickshain district to meet Irmi and Hannah at Hannah's new apartment. Had a fun late lunch with them at a local German/Austrian restaurant. Said good by and off to find the local transportation back to Alezanderplatz to find the artist with the bears for Illene. Stopped for a few minutes at 2 old Lutheran churches. Saint Mary's and St Nikolai (twin spires). Both beautiful and old - built in the 1200's. A beer and wine by the river and off to find a Geocache near the Konzerthaus. More wine while we waited for the concert.
    Lovely outdoor cafe. First row in the concert !! Bernstein, Strauss, and Rachmaninoff Home by 10:30PM.

    Miles: 9.8!!.
