Let’s continue our photographic tour of the world’s greatest cities, shall we?
It’s been a while since Caroline and I visited Berlin. It’s been almost three years to be precise.
My aunt and uncle live in the German capital and when we were city hopping around Western Europe, we really couldn’t skip Berlin. I’ve heard so many good things about the city and architecture- and landmark-wise it totally lived up to my expectations. The downside of our visit was the weather though. Visiting in January may not have been the best idea; it rained a lot and it was overcast most of the time. Berlin is one of the greenest cities in the world, but we didn’t see any of that. We’ll definitely have to go back in summer.
We were lucky to be guided around by locals – that is, my aunt and uncle – who were able to show us all major highlights of the city, as well as few beautiful less-known corners.
Berlin has a lot going for it. In addition to being a super-green city, it is also one of the world’s party centers, it is steeped in history and home to an overwhelming number of historic sites. During our visit we merely touched upon those highlights. It gave us a taste of what the city is like and I’m definitely hungry for more.
Because it’s been a few years, the photos in this post may be dated. They do fulfill their purpose, though, which is offering a first impression of the city of Berlin.
