A short trip to Berlin I went on recently showed me again the great vibe of this city. It’s a very artsy lively space with very interesting people and locations and oh so much to do. Go there if you can!
It also is one of the few German places with decent hostels I found so far. Maybe I’m just totally spoiled by New Zealand’s hostels..
This is the place where the Palast der Republik (Palace of the Republic) stood. This was an important political and cultural building back from the German Democratic Republic. It had to be taken down because it was build with asbestos (and it was quite ugly). I have some old pictures somewhere, just have to digg them up..
The Brandenburg Gate (Brandenburger Tor). “Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” Yes, this gate. :)
And now have some Berlin street art. I just wish everyone would put some work into their graffitis and not just scribble some letters..
