This weeks 5 on Friday is a continuation of the Berlin theme started earlier in the week with my review of Alone in Berlin. A couple of weeks ago the mister and I spent a weekend in Berlin to celebrate our birthdays which happen to fall just a week apart. I had wanted to go for a while and birthdays seemed as good a reason as any to visit.
These are 5 of the highlights.
1. The Berlin Wall – It’s impossible to visit Berlin without tripping over the wall and being drawn into its incredible story
2. Brandenburger Tor
3. Walking – There are still lots of hidden gems in Berlin, particularly on the East side. We did a cultural, historical walking tour with Slow Travel Berlin, a fantastic way to discover parts of Berlin we may not have found alone
4. Weekend People Watching and Flea Markets – Berliners love a Flea Market and the biggest can be found at Mauerpark, for music, food and fripperies
5. Cake and Beer – I don’t drink Beer but my man does, however I do eat cake. There are lots of both and lots of lovely cafes to indulge in both!
