How are you? First of all, thanks to my first blog followers! I'm motivated to keep this blog very active from now on, promise ^__^
This time I want to write about my two trips to Berlin this year! Although I live in Germany I somehow never managed to visit our capital city. But since I've got a lot of free time this year I was lucky enough to visit this beautiful city twice, for one week each. Each time I went by bus and/or train and it took a looong time to get there, almost 12 hours!! My first journey to Berlin was very busy and I didn't manage to take much pictures. We did a loooot of sightseeing, made a bus tour through the city, visited all the famous places like the 'Rotes Rathaus', 'Alexanderplatz', 'Fernsehturm', 'Brandenburger Tor', 'Berliner Mauer' (the Berlin Wall) and so on!
Das Rote Rathaus
Der Berliner Fernsehturm <3
We visited the German Bundestag (parliament) and saw all the most popular German politicians at a discussion, even Bundeskanzlerin (I don't know the English word... Federal Chancellor?) Angela Merkel! xD Afterwards we could even talk to some politicians, it was very exciting! We also visited the 'Auswärtiges Amt' ( Federal Foreign Office) and took a guided tour!
Besides that, we visited many museums! Berlin has a whole lot of different museums, many of them have free entry!
In the evenings, we took a walk and discovered many beautiful bars and café's, one of my favourites was the 'Tadschikische Teestube' (picture taken from their website):
They had the most amazing tea varieties I've tasted in my whole life haha *-* Everything was so beautiful and comfortable in this tearoom! We didn't want to leave~ It is small and a bit hidden, but was definitely worth searching for. Also, it's near to the 'Hakesche Höfe' where many small arts and crafts stores, galleries and a cinema are located so we took a midnight walk over there ^-^
On another evening, we visited the famous Berlin Shopping street Ku'damm and went to Hard Rock Café Berlin where we drank some of their delicious cocktails and I bought a cocktail glass and my second Hard Rock Café pin (first one from Prague last year) ♥ I collect them now!
Somehow Bavarian - looking pin xD
All in all, it was a great first visit to Berlin! There's so much more to tell about the beautiful restaurants and places we visited, but since I didn't take enough pictures it's a bit boring xD so I will talk a bit more about my second trip (with more pictures) next time!
Have you been to Berlin before?
That's it for now, part 2 will follow soon!
Have a nice evening
