The best part of exploring the city, though, came when we arrived at the city's town square called "Markt". We had lunch at a nice italian cafe right on the square and soaked in the beautiful view and the quaintness of it all (Lindsay had French Onion Soup ...
... anyway haha. On the plus side, GERMANY IS IN THE FINAL WHILE WE’RE IN BERLIN YAAAAAY!!! So that was a really good end to the night for everyone.
