First off, I am writing this account of 21 July and 22 July on the 24 July. It seems somebody has forgotten to keep up to speed here...mmmm.......
On the morning of the 21st July we were up early, had our usual Frankfurt breakfast and then struck out for the hauptbahnhof for the 8:13 to Berlin. Now, if that isn't a title …
... Empire I believe it was used as one. We made our way over to Matthaischurch and explored all around the outside. The roofs are tiled with orange and gold, so it is extremely pretty. We also were able to view a Falconer with his hawk just hanging around and allowing people to take picture with the hawk on their arm.
Luckily, from the hilltop, I was able to get a good layout of the city. I made some mental notes and we set out walking to our next ...
... around in the sunshine, turn a corner and Wham ! you're at another site which illustrates how terrible humans can be to each other.
Checkpoint Charlie aka the Allied Checkpoint is touristy and gimmicky now but the exhibition brought it's importance to light - the US Vs Russian tank 'face-off' - one of the many powerful images on show.
I thought the Berlin Wall would be higher but ...
... it? Pretty gross. Their fast food places have a series of windows on the wall. You put your money in, open the window, and take your food out. One thing I had (admittedly my favourite) was essentially deep fried beef stew, but the stew is a puree consistency.
Met a couple Americans that I went to the Anne Frank house (where they hid out) this was an extremely emotional visit - definitely tears involved. Went to the Van Gogh museum, where I ended up losing Ryan and ...
... to a couple of bands playing, drank red wine and chatted until about 10pm when we ventured to find some food just down the road. We went to this amazing Turkish restaurant where we had flafels and hollumi with pickles and cabbage and yoghurt yummo. After this we farewelled Heidi and Carmen ( they both had important things to do in then morning) and the 5 of us went to one of Marc's friends pubs in friedrichshain.

TravelPod Member Reviewsibis Budget Berlin Ost
Well, I am not certain that I have the correct hotel here. I have differing location indicators. We stayed at the ibis Budget Berlin on Bayreuther Strasse off Kurfurstendamm near the zoo.
This was our first ibis stay and we loved it. The location was close to everything we needed - busses, underground, shops and sights. There were easy transportation points all around. AND the staff was fantastic.. They could not do anything more. Rooms were clean, staff helpful and all was good, great.
