This was one of my favorite things in Berlin. It’s like walking through a maze in another world. And makes you really think about what’s happened in the past.

Museum Island

This is exactly what the name says. An island with museums. There are a very wide variety to choose from, so everyone can find something they want to see.

Sachshausen

This is about an hour away from Berlin and the tour took up most of the day, but it is definitely worth it. Seeing a concentration camp in person was an amazing experience. It really put life into perspective. We went on a guided tour, which was extremely beneficial because we learned about much more than I ever could’ve imagined.

 

food

Hofbrauhaus

An iconic german restaurant with live music, authentic clothing, and delicious food. Everyone’s favorite was the potato soup.

Escados

A huge restaurant with a cozy atmosphere. I hadn’t eaten all day, so I was definitely in the mood for a lot of food. The assorted meat plate was exactly what I needed. The perfect first meal in Berlin.
