Last weekend, I went on a trip to Berlin. On the first day, we had a bus tour, where a tour guide showed us around the city of Berlin to see the famous landmarks and gave us a brief history of the city. After the tour, we had free time for the rest of the weekend, so my friends and I visited several famous places. Some landmarks I visited include the Berlin Cathedral, TV Tower, Holocaust Memorial, Berlin Wall, and Checkpoint Charlie.
The Berlin Cathedral was very nice. The details of the building on the outside as well as the inside were very beautiful. I also liked the fountain in front of the Cathedral, because it was very unique.
Walking through the Holocaust Memorial was a little strange, because we were suggested to walk alone on the paths, which made me feel very isolated and as though the paths would never end.
The East Side Gallery was very interesting as well. I personally enjoy going to art galleries to view pieces of art, so this was a really good treat for me to visit the Berlin Wall! I really liked seeing the different paintings by people all over the world at the Wall. I had a chance to see Checkpoint Charlie as well.
It was also the Beer Festival during that weekend, so I went out with my friends one night for the festivities. I didn’t try any beer, but I had some potato pancakes with apple sauce, which was delicious!
I was extremely happy with this trip, because I got to see so many monuments in Berlin and walk around the beautiful city. I would definitely want to visit again and see more!
