As with all major cities Berlin has a mass of hotels ranging for the cheap to the blinking ridiculous! We chose the Ibis Berlin Ostbahnhof simply because it is located next to the one of the main railway stations in Berlin which is very convenient for our train from Amsterdam and one to Warsaw. The hotel is just across the street from the station and is only a couple of minutes' walk as long as you leave by the nearest doors! The station is massive and if you leave at the wrong end it is can easily double the distance you have to walk outside something you won't do twice in this weather! After getting off the train head for the main hall and then follow the signs or smell of Subways, go past Subways and use the exit at the end of the hallway you can't miss the hotel which is to the left.
The hotel is what you would expect from an Ibis, clean, warm and modern and only cost 45EUR a night. Based in East Berlin most tourist sites are a little further away but are easily accessible on the metro from the station right across the street. We would recommend this hotel to other travellers.

But we saw how they lived whilst completing our tourist trifecta (church, museum, palace).
The audio tour of Schloss Charlottenburg was superb, very informative and a great adjunct to the written information in each room (thankfully also in English). It's beautiful of course, but it's hard to get over the ostentation - look how powerful and important we are. Dude, ...
Who knew Deutschland would be such a fun country. I've always thought of Germans as being too serious and somewhat cold. But with all of the sausage eating, beer drinking and world cup football everywhere, it was impossible not to have a good time with the surprisingly friendly Germans. I split my days there between the cities of Munich and Berlin, and enjoyed them both thoroughly.
Munich was a relatively short, painless 4 hour train ride out from Zurich, ...
Home to a very popular festival known as Oktoberfest, Germany showed to be much more than a beer-drinking nation. With rich culture, vibrant nightlife and amazing pork knuckles, Berlin was another city that did not fail to reach expectations.
One of the many amazing sites in Berlin is the Berlin Wall. This barrier was constructed in 1961 and completely cut off West and East Berlin. This wall included towers placed along the walls which guarded no ...
... strong wind we could have done without. We grabbed some Vietnamese from our local and headed to Gendarmenmarkt for their Christmas markets. Strangely, the market was meant to be open til 10pm but was shut... Massive anti-climax to my birthday wish of beer and gingerbread in the Christmas market! Nonetheless, the walk home through the city lights was just as awesome! There is a massive storm smashing northern Germany at the moment so let's see what tomorrow brings... Maybe more ...
... cook. We made it back as I ate two tomatoes, an apple and an orange. Then Steve cooked a noodle stir fry with sausage and I had a helping of that too! Needless to say we called it an early night and I got a chance to talk to Amanda for a good while who had been missing me :). On a side note there were some very high end cars in all the places we went! I was so in love... Steve said I would come back with more photos of cars then the places we ...
