Berlin; Part One.

I had such an amazing time in Berlin I’ve decided to do a two part post on all the epic things we did whilst we were there for 5 days.  If you’re planning on going I’d say go midweek (Mon – Fri) as we did as it was a lot cheaper than a weekend and you get longer there! Obviously if you’re going for the nightlife then a weekend would be better!

Monday

We landed and headed straight to our apartment, which was stunning. We got a 2 bedroom ‘Friends’ apartment with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, with kitchen and living area.  We were within walking distance of Alexanderplatz and on a great train line.

After we had settled in we made our way to the Brandenburg Gate and the Holocaust Memorial. Plus had a walk through the park before we all froze beyond words, and bought 24 Dunkin Donuts to help us get warm!  I think we all had brain freeze!

After piling on some more layers back at our apartment we headed back to towards the Brandenburg Gate for our viewing appointment at the Reichstag Building in the amazing glass dome over looking the city.

It has amazing views and I’d really recommend booking up to visit if you’re traveling to Berlin.  It was a great way to start our trip as we could see all of the places we planned on visiting! On the way back we stopped off for a quick snack, by this time we had been awake from 20 hours so a kebab was calling! It was the best kebab I’d ever had!

Tuesday

This was a pretty hard hitting day, apart from the amazing layer of snow! We went to Sachsenhausen-Oranienburg Concentration Camp.

Our tour guide, Rob Shaw from New Berlin Tours, was so informative and answered all of our questions.  He even emailed us reading lists of books he had quoted from.

Here are a few photos I took on the tour…

This was such an informative place to go and see and to learn about. It was, of course, very bleak and heartbreaking but I would recommend it.  It’s something we should all learn more about.

After our tour we were ready for some good food, and we found this at ChenChe. It’s a Vietnamese style Tea House, and the food was incredible.  We had smaller dishes to start; Veal Rice Burgers, Bo Bia Rolls, Spring Rolls and the most amazing peanut sauce.

For mains I had noodles with spring onion, white onion, celery and chicken. It was out of this world!

    Looks like you had a lovely time. I’m a little jealous, there are so many parts of Germany I’d love to go to. Looking forward to reading teil zwei as they’d say in Deutschland.
