After a week with great spring like weather and after a weekend in Lisbon my girlfriends and me went on our roadtrip to Berlin. The car was filled up and we were in the car at 6 am. After two stops we already felt that the air was getting colder and by mid day we arrived in Berlin. What an impressive city it is. We hit the road as soon as we arrived. Went to the Gendarmenmarkt for lunch and walked to the Unter der Linde to the Brandenburger Tor. Had a look at the Reichstag before walking to the Denkmal für die ermordeten Juden Europas. Off course pieces of the wall and checkpoint Charlie. What a lot to take in. The stories that you can read across the city on the cold war, people trying to escape west Berlin, the fall of the wall. The Denkmal monument was one of the most impressive things we saw, those 2711 blocks. There is so much to see in this city, so much history.
But with all this history there is so much more to Berlin. A nice places to walk (a lot is within walking distance), shop (KaDeWe) and Friedrichstrasse e.g. and great places to eat. Eventhough the forecast was some rain we managed an all dry weekend and even saw the sun! So a nice weekend. And Berlin is a must see.
