Photo Friday: Straddling The Wall

The Berlin Wall - probably one of the most famous walls in the world. Parts of the wall are still standing in the city; a stark reminder of what happened. But in the areas where the wall was torn down, there is still a subtle nod to what was previously at that place, in the… Continue reading Photo Friday: Straddling The Wall

Located in the heart of Berlin, Brandenburg Gate is a major sight that millions flock to every year. It was originally built on the site of a city gate, and later was one of the main locations for the tearing down of the Berlin Wall.

Taste of Berlin: Money Savers

City breaks, and travel in general, can break the bank. So when I'm going away I always look to see where I could save a penny or two, especially if it means I can stay for longer! Berlin is no exception, and there are some small, but smart changes that could lead to a cheaper… Continue reading Taste of Berlin: Money Savers

Berlin, Product Review

Berlin Welcome Card

City breaks can be expensive, but thankfully there are plenty of ways to save a few pennies here and there. Many of the big cities offer some kind of pass or attraction card, which could save you money and hopefully a bit of hassle! Having been to Berlin twice, I opted both times to buy… Continue reading Berlin Welcome Card

Berlin, Postcards

Postcard from…Checkpoint Charlie Museum

I hadn't expected to get a postcard from the Checkpoint Charlie Museum that wasn't of Checkpoint Charlie or the sign close by notifying people that they're in the American sector. Instead, I found this one. After we'd worked our way through the museum and had seen the personal side of the wall - the effect… Continue reading Postcard from…Checkpoint Charlie Museum

The Wall – Asisi Panorama, Berlin

I’ve never been anywhere where the phrase ‘don’t judge a book by it’s cover’ has been more appropriate. From the outside, this place looks like a giant oil storage unit. In fact, if it weren’t for the epic PANORAMA > > signage, you definitely wouldn’t think there was anything in there other than, well, oil… Continue reading The Wall – Asisi Panorama, Berlin

Berlin

Holocaust Memorial Museum, Berlin

More of an exhibition than a museum, this place offers an eye-opening journey of the persecution of the Jewish people before and during the Holocaust. The Holocaust Memorial itself, actually called Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe (but called the Holocaust Memorial for short), was built to commemorate the six million Jews murdered in… Continue reading Holocaust Memorial Museum, Berlin

Berlin

Checkpoint Charlie Museum, Berlin

I find the history of Berlin fascinating, and one of the most mind baffling things to me is the Berlin Wall. I struggle to comprehend what it must have been like to wake up one morning to find that you were no longer allowed to the other side of the city. For this reason, my… Continue reading Checkpoint Charlie Museum, Berlin
