Hi, I`m back from Berlin.
It was great. Berlin is soooo big, I think we walked 100s of kilometers. We got sore feet.
The first day we went on a sightseeing tour on a boat. We saw the Nikolaiviertel. This is an historical part of Berlin. The Reichstag is one of the buildings symbolizing German history and is the seat of the Bundestag. We saw many old or antique bridges.
After the sightseeing tour we walked along at Unter den Linden until Brandenburger Tor. There we found the first Buddy Bears, wooohooo. We made photos and were happy. And we found many other Buddy Bears. Great!
Thursday we visited the Filmpark Babelsberg. At the entry were a circle of Buddy Bears. The park, hmmm... we were disappointed. There is nothing to tell you. In the evening we walked along at the Kurfürstendamm. At the Kurfürstendamm you find the biggest businesses in the town. There are hotels, restaurants, cinemas, cafes and shopping centers. And of course, you guessed it - BUDDY BEARS!
Wednesday we took a sightseeing tour with the bus. We could get on and off at 14 different stops all around the city. We saw Gedächtniskirche (Memorial Church), KaDeWe, the largest department store in Germany, Checkpoint Charlie, the Wall Museum, Brandenburger Tor , Regierungsviertel , Government district, etc. Afterwards, we went to the Siegessäule. It is a very tall statue and we climbed the 285 steps. There is a great view.
Friday we visited the Olympia stadium , the biggest stadium in Germany, and the Funkturm. From there one has a wonderful view over the city.
