Berlin


#1

Right, I’m off to Berlin for a few days tomorrow for the old wedding anniversary. What’s good over there, then?


#2

Nobody on this forum has ever been to Berlin.


#3

Take her up the OXO tower


#4

Bottles of decent beer are very cheap.


#5

I’ve heard it can take your breath away, so be careful.


#6

I live here. But I can’t say I’ve ever really been here.


#7

I love Kreuzberg. Really cool, grimy and friendly. Smoky bars takes some getting used to though. I thought I missed the atmosphere. Turns out i didn’t.


#8

I went to an upside-down bar where all the furniture was on the ceiling. Took a photo and hilariously flipped it upside down like absolutely every other tourist who’s been there-

Also had a look around the Olympic stadium which was free and now part of a big sports park


#9

I saw a fox at the Potsdamer platz. Think it’s fuchs in German which is good.

Also got some free pretzels in one bar which were really nice


#10

All of it


#11

Had to go on a David Bowie tour of Berlin once (yes) and it was 5 hours and towards the end the tour guide revealed that Bowie didn’t even remember living there because he was so off his head

Really bad


#12

I really liked the ddr museum


#13

Don’t go it’s shite


#14

I love berlin! The memorial to the murdered Jews of Europe is incredible.


#15

Also the soviet war memorial park


#16

yeah I somehow only went to this for the first time quite recently and it’s absolutely amazing


#17

Ah, didn’t realise the Olympic Stadium was free to have a look at. Quite a fan of having a gander at an empty stadium, which is just as well seeing as I’m a York City fan.


#18

Yep, planning on going to that, so glad to hear it’s worth it. All over the DDR stuff, me.


#19

Checkpoint Charlie is probably the best museum I’ve ever been to. It’s a bit rough round the edges but packed to the raffters with very interesting cold war… things


#20

Idk, I thought it was good, but a lot of reading things on walls. Ddr was much better in terms of playing with things like a big kid.
