Berlin

Hey there!
I'm back from my school trip to Berlin, and I had a great time! I've never been to Berlin before, it even was my first time in Germany outside Bavaria, and it was great to see the city! Even better was the fact that I was able to go with all my friends from my class, and we had tons of free time.
In the group we did a lot of sightseeing and visited places like the Reichstag building, Madame Tussaud's, the Brandenburger Tor, Checkpoint Charlie, the East Side Gallery and the Kurfuerstendamm. It was great and really interesting to see all of these places and buildings, and I liked it there a lot. We also did a boat tour on the Spree and went shopping and also into clubs and bars.
The weather unfortunately wasn't that great, it was always switching from bright sunshine to pouring rain, and that every half an hour. It really was somewhat unsteady, but it was okay :D
Something I think is funny is the fact that even though I was in the same country, Germany, it was very different from Bavaria. Different words for food and stuff like that, really weird partly but also fun :D The landscape also looks really different, here in Bavaria we have so many mountains whereas in Berlin, it's just plain land! Not what I'm used to :D
In the city there were always lots of cool people on their way, and we saw so many dancing or singing or making music in the street and also in the subway! That was great!
I find that some places of Berlin weren't exactly what you'd call pretty, but I think that every city has its more and less beautiful spots. I liked the fact that in comparison it's nowhere as crowded or dirty in the subways as Munich, and our hostel, Singer 109, was super pretty! A good place to stay with free Wlan, good breakfast and nice rooms.
I really like Berlin, and I definitely want to got back there! I really think everyone should go there one day if they can! What do you think of Berlin?
xoxo, Misch

  3. I've been to Munich twice and I would never describe it as dirty. Berlin was nice too. Pity the weather didn't cooperate (we went in February-March, so no surprises there).

    1. I didn't mean to say Munich's dirty, but I think that in comparison the subway and the train stations are way cleaner in Berlin than in Munich!
      yeah, that always is a problem...
