So my sis and I had a spur-of-the-moment thing and decided to go to Berlin last minute the other day! Here’s a little photo diary. 🙂
The Museuminsel has beautiful museum buildings. We ran out of time to actually visit one though.
Impressive art at the Eastside Gallery. This is a memorial for freedom, featuring over a hundred paintings by artists from all over the world, painted in 1990. Lots of it is damaged by graffit though, nowadays. (Thanks for the tip, Celeste!)
The Holocaust Memorial or Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe. Shamelessly borrowing from Wikipedia here: “the stelae are designed to produce an uneasy, confusing atmosphere, and the whole sculpture aims to represent a supposedly ordered system that has lost touch with human reason.” I could certainly feel that, I think you can kind of get the feeling from the second picture I took!
I was very excited to see Dunkin Donuts is a thing in Germany!
Bought some macarons at the KaDaWe, which is a luxury warehouse much like the Dutch Bijenkorf or English Harrods.
All in all, I don’t think Berlin will ever by my favourite city but I think it was definitely worth visiting, if not for all the history it breathes!
