Today after breakfast we headed to the Berliner Dom. The church is not catholic so we had to pay to get in. Inside it did resemble church we had seen in the past. Later we headed to the crypt underneath which had loads of coffins from the royal family of Berlin. After this we headed to the Pergamon museum which was awesome. It has lots of stuff from Greece, and Babylon. Then we found some lunch in the Friedrich Strasse Bahnhof. Had curry wurst at a good authentic joint. From here we went to the Humboldt University Museum, which had the worlds largest dinosaur, among other things. Got some good pictures.
We next visited the Altes Museum which sucked.
After the museum we walked around Alexanderplatz. Kinda disappointed, not much to see or do. Italian squares are much nicer.
Walked back to the hostel, found an amazing place to eat and it was cheap! Lindy got a pizza and I had pasta with Gorgonzola sauce.
In a bit too early tonight..
Today was a museum day because it was raining when we woke up. We headed to Museum Island and decided to go to the Berliner Dom because the museums were not open. It was an alright Dom, the Dome was cool but that was about it. After this we went to the Pergamon Museum. This was the coolest museum we have gone to all trip! They have the decorations of a Greek temple, the Ishtar Gate from Babylon, and many really big artifacts! We very much enjoyed ourselves, the audio guide wasn’t very good but was included in the admission price.
