Day 11: Berlin, Germany
Berlin Travel Blog› entry 13 of 15 › view all entries
We left our accidental Germany stop in Munster early this morning and headed to our original destination, Berlin. When we arrived 4 hours later it was 90 degrees and sunny, but quickly turned to drizzle then to a crazy rain and wind storm. During and after that we took the historic walking tour all around the city and saw Checkpoint Charley, the Berlin Wall, some of the East and West side as well as the hotel that Jackson made so famous holding the baby out of a few years ago and the fabulous churches and universities of old times and even some sad Holocaust memorials.
Took the subway to the other side of town (we have this public transportation thing down pat!) and found our hostel. It is inside an old German house, very pretty but slightly haunted.
It started pouring like crazy again with lightning and swirling clouds when we got back to the hostel so we played in the courtyard in the rain, called that our shower and went to bed trying not to listen to the creaks and shadows of the old house. Goodnight from atop a hill in Berlin!
