West Berlin

 

Germany is a country that holds a special place in my heart. It has places which are so distinctly different from each other that it is surely going to given you a surprise of a lifetime. It is the perfect mixture of history and modernity all in one region. Some areas are so technologically and architecturally advances whereas the other areas pride itself in guarding buildings from the historic 1800’s or even earlier.

As there are so many wonderful cities to write about (this blog post would go on forever),I am going to focus on my favourite city, ‘Berlin‘.This is the capital city of Germany and holds one of the most significant historical background. ‘The Brandenburger gate’, a neoclassical piece is a gate that reflects the grandeur of this Country during the historic times. Atop the gate is a sculpture of a chariot drawn by four horses. As a tourist you must also not forget to visit the ‘Federal Chancellery’ which is the top Governmental Building of the country and is currently home to Angela Merkel. The ‘Reichstag’ is also a significant ruin worth visiting as this was the former parliament of Germany before it was burnt down during the WW2.

For those who are not keen on history and want to spend their time doing social activities such as shopping and clubbing, you won’t be disappointed as Berlin is home to the famous ‘Kurfürstendamm‘, the age old Friedrichstrasse and also plenty of independent boutiques in and around the Hackesche Höfe to satisfy your ‘vacation shopaholism’.All these streets also have awesome clubs and bars to accomodate your ‘partying needs’ and if you are looking to kick it up a notch you should definitely visit ‘Berghain’ nightclub to have a ‘night to remember’.

What’s visiting a city if you don’t try their traditional foods?Don’t forget to eat your weight of pretzels, scnitzels,currywursts and bockwusts. If you have the time to spend a whole evening dining out, definitely order the Königsberger Klopse‘or Käsespätzle.

With this I conclude my Berlin travelogue but as I have mentioned in my previous posts, feel free to reach out to me to discuss your travel plans or simply to know more about Berlin or other cities in Germany.

      I spent 2 weeks in Germany and I think it’s enough to get a rich cultural experience of the Country as a whole 🙂

    Oh, I would love to go to Berlin someday! Also, all these German names are unbelievable. I only recognized “scnitzel”. I should probably work on it.
    Thanks for the guide!

    Berlin is one of my favorite cities in the world!

    So much diverse culture, history and fun! I really loved the DDR museum, Mustafa’s Kebabs and walking for hours getting lost in the interesting food and history filled neighborhoods.

    So much nostalgia! Thanks 😛

      Thanks Ilia, Yes I have visited Oktoberfest, it’s very very popular in Bavaria especially in Munich. If you like beer, you won’t feel like coming back home after the festival 🙂
