Berlin, Germany - 3rd December 2011

By: Mondfalke

Hello!
Today we are on a trip to Berlin. We will have a walk through the city today and go back home tomorrow!
We arrived at the main station and then started a walk to the Reichstag building. To get there we needed to cross the river Spree.

From there we could already see the Bundeskanzleramt. It is the place where the chancellor of Germany, at the moment Angela Merkel, and her helpers are working.

And here the view back to the main station of Berlin.

Ah, and here the Bundeskanzleramt again, this time from the front.

Then we finally arrived at the Reichstag, it is where the German government is meeting.

From the Reichstag it isn't far to the Brandenburger Tor, a very famous building in Berlin. It is also on some German coins.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-8pS3NbrFu40/Tzrglk5DEcI/AAAAAAAADlU/hxHAtJI82r0/s640/5%2520-%2520Sanny%2520-%2520Berlin%2520%25289%2529.JPG
At the Brandenburger Tor ends the famous street "Unter den Linden".
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-qJOlb38yKUI/TzrgmbS7WfI/AAAAAAAADlc/_Itmy3RabX8/s640/5%2520-%2520Sanny%2520-%2520Berlin%2520%252810%2529.JPG
In front of the Brandenburger Tor we found this christmas tree. I think it is not very beautiful and they could have found a better one for such an well visited place!

Some more impressions from Berlin.

In the distance you see the TV tower of Berlin.

This is the most famous church in Berlin, called "Berliner Dom". We thought about going in but it was really expensive and so we couldn't afford it.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-UhGF0GXFQDg/TzrgqEZyMrI/AAAAAAAADmE/tIV4zPG_VgE/s640/5%2520-%2520Sanny%2520-%2520Berlin%2520%252815%2529.JPG

We continued our walk to the Alexanderplatz, there was a christmas market.

We could have a look from above out of a shop.

Right near the Alexanderplatz is the TV-tower.
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/--pwhvOP-0a8/TzrgxW02VSI/AAAAAAAADnA/a2S-KKnSODI/s512/5%2520-%2520Sanny%2520-%2520Berlin%2520%252822%2529.JPG
On our way back we met this man and he was so kind to take a picture with me.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-FlReHuqDilE/Tzrgy8jqT2I/AAAAAAAADnE/iKMyJzrysJY/s640/5%2520-%2520Sanny%2520-%2520Berlin%2520%252823%2529.JPG
We walked back along the street "Unter den Linden". The Russian Embassy is located there.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-jIrn5At1uYs/Tzrgz1LH48I/AAAAAAAADnM/xMCXXigP-mg/s640/5%2520-%2520Sanny%2520-%2520Berlin%2520%252824%2529.JPG
We then walked to the hostel. Jenny wanted to go to a concert in the evening but she told me, it is too dangerous for little Pikachus and so I needed to stay in the hostel. But it was okay for me, it was a long and very wet day and I was happy with a warm and cosy bed!
The hostel was located in an old monastery and we took some photos in the morning when we left it.

On the way to the underground we found this ruins.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-XraowRP2gzg/Tzrg3OG4lvI/AAAAAAAADnk/zqg1ujpTqJc/s640/5%2520-%2520Sanny%2520-%2520Berlin%2520%252827%2529.JPG
Right next to the station was the Tempodrom, a place where events can take place and with some history as it had to change its location several times in its existance.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-Hro1yM1PyBE/Tzrg3xO6B_I/AAAAAAAADnw/JxUT9IcstbE/s640/5%2520-%2520Sanny%2520-%2520Berlin%2520%252828%2529.JPG
So ended our visit in Berlin. Jenny told me that there is much more to be seen, perhaps I can go again one day!
Bye,
Sanny
