Now let me just say that I am going to go back. I spent two days and one night in Berlin and this is a city that needs lots of exploring! There is so much to see and do and I don’t think I even scratched the surface. I would go back twice, Once in Summer to go back to the zoo and to sit in the parks and have picnics and then at Christmas, I want to explore the markets and I want to go when it snows! There is also some key things that I missed out on.
Overall this is a great city, it’s historical, its pretty, it’s got a plethora of things to do so really it’s the perfect city break! I really liked it! Even though when I was there (November 17th – 18th) it was foggy and freezing, it was still such a lovely place to visit.
Just a small taste of the historical side of Berlin.
Walking down the Unter Den Linden (Under the Limes, which is the cutest name!) You can spot the very iconic Brandenberg Gate, a must see!
Next is the Reichstag, there is so much history that is attached to this building. It is crazy to imagine the speeches and the masses of people waiting outside. There is an odd feeling in this place, don’t know if I’d ever want to go inside. Despite all this it was a good experience to see it.
And the final thing that I think is a must see is the Holocaust Memorial, for me this is a place that you walk through and appreciate what you have, the people in your life and the little things in this world that make it special. Try to be respectful here as it represents something much greater than you or I. Remember to appreciate.
This part of Berlin is soaked in History, there is so much to see, you can spend hours exploring this area and I urge that you do!
I have always loved Natural History Museums, there is something about them, the one in Dublin is not that big but it has a great selection of animals. There is something amazing about walking through and seeing when these animals had been studied and taken note of. I was excited to go to the natural history museum in Berlin as it’s one of the best things to do according to TripAdvisor. It is 3 euro for a student so really affordable!The Rooms:
The main room is always some sort of amazing dinosaur! It’s a given that, that is what you will find. The main room is big and airy and it houses some amazing fossils. The second room I entered was where the biodiversity wall was and may I say this is amazing, they are all so wonderfully preserved and it is amazing to see animals big and small on this one giant wall. There is the wet room, there is a huge collection of preserved animals in jars, it’s eery but it’s absolutely incredible! There is so many rows and it’s just really cool that you can walk all around it.Keep in mind that there are a few more rooms to explore! So get going!
I really recommend you go! It’s really cool there are so many things to see and the animals and artefacts are so well preserved. It’s a great way to spend a couple of hours!
