Berlin – A story on how to rebuild a city the proper way

B

We begin our Travel tips and tricks with no other than the city of Berlin. Among all the cities I have visited in Europe, Berlin and London are the only cities I would enjoy to live in and spend part of my life.

The fun fact about this city is that it was completely destroyed during World War II and you can see traces of such a catastrophe in every single building you walk by. During a short trip I had from the Bradenburg Gate to Berlin’s Memorial Wall, I traveled in time multiple times. From the Reichstag building which is the epithome of German culture, to newly build and modern skyscrapers and mirror like buildings.

But that’s not all, what really impressed me the most is how they used ruined buildings and built modern ones on top of them – without being horrible! I find that incredible and a good way to use what’s old to sustain the new.

Along the way you can meet different statues that are looking at you like at a foreigner – cause you are – but don’t be afraid of them. Say hello and they will gladly welcome you into their group of chit-chat.

What do I recommend to visit in Berlin?

For this trip, I used Google Trips and seen the major attractions: the Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag Building, museum island, Berlin Wall Memorial, Neues Museum and so on.

However, what I really recommend other than the regular tourist route is to have a simple and long walk around the city. The trip will take you to the future, to the past and back. I guarantee you will be amazed by the resemblance with New York, Prague and Krakow mixed together.

Don’t forget to say hi to the locals and leave behind your judgemental attitude.

What to eat in Berlin?

Potsdamer Platz and Alexanderplatz are two of my favourite food courts in Berlin. You can find fast-food restaurants but also local food in there, so it fits a quick-snack or a long awaited lunch.

I recommend to try the famous german Bretzel with all sorts of fillings. If you go in the winter or if it is cold outside, I recommend visiting Rausch Schokoladenhaus. They…make healthy food.

Don’t forget to go around the city with the U-Bahn. The old ones have a really antique feeling.
