Amsterdam in one minute (video)

Amsterdam in one minute

Today you can see the traveller’s Amsterdam in one minute –

You can see the unique architecture of Amsterdam and the various boats and house boats during a lovely channel cruise.

You will also peak in the Red Light district during dark. During daylight you will see many nice street cafeterias of Amsterdam.

The video will also pop in the Van Gogh Museum which is one of the best sights in Amsterdam. Few other art districts and museums will also be seen, like a sex museum and Anne Frank -museum, with its 45 minute long queue.

You will find lots of people with bicycles and even bicycles with bicycles. Most of the people, including kids, ride bicycles without a helmet, like daredevils.

But what would a one minute video about Amsterdam be without tulips and other flowers – they cheer the rider on the railing of many bridges in Amsterdam, as you can see in the video.

5 reasons to visit the Berlin Zoo

Gorilla in the Berlin Zoo

The Zoologischer Garten Berlin is a nice green area in the middle of the concrete jungle of Berlin and it is within a good access by public transport.

Here’s five more reasons to visit the Berlin Zoo

  1. If you’re living in the Nordic countries and you’d like to see a real Asian elephant without traveling to India, you will find it surprisingly near. From the Berlin Zoo.

2. If you’re traveling to Berlin with kids, then the Zoologischer Garden Berlin will be guaranteed to give a lot more rewarding experience than, for example, the Berlin Wall.

3. The trained sea lions of the Berlin Zoo provide an action-packed show which will amaze you with the wisdom and learning ability of the animal.

4. If you want to try what it feels like to look at the hippopotamus eye to eye, even that can be done in the Berlin Zoo.

5. And yet, if you want to see the real giraffe, zebra or rhino without traveling to Africa, these animals can be found from the Zoologischer Garden Berlin, which Wikipedia says to be one of the largest zoos in the world and the largest in terms of animal species.

Berlin triptips and travel experiences

Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin

The first time I travelled Berlin was in 2015 and I immediately fancied the Berlin-Tegel airport. The easiness of traveling onwards from there is worth mentioning. Had read a lot of positive reviews about Pergamon museum and because of that I felt a little disappointed after seeing the exhibition inside the museum. I would myself recommend that museum only to people unfamiliar with the East. Otherwise the museum did not have much new or exciting to see, at least in 2015. Especially if you’ve travelled in India

Whereas the Neues Museum in the Berlin Museum Island offered a very interesting and comprehensive view to the past of the humankind. The exhibition was in a way amazing and inspiring. It would be worth visiting there even without the famous Nefertiti, which you were not allowed to photograph.

Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin was a tiny part of our history commercialized well into a modern day use. It was used as a place to take selfies with the “soldiers” from the past. I think this place is worth seeing if you’re into photography. It is also brilliant advertisement for the Mc Donald’s restaurant right next to it. You might even wanna have a bite of a hamburger with some history alongside.

Branderburg Gate in Berlin did not startle me, but the Holocaust Memorial I would recommend for photographers and those travellers interested in history. That impressive but yet modest looking memorial can make you very serious. Another similar grave sight is the Topography of Terror.

Berlin Zoo makes it easy to take a taxi to a jungle. All the monkeys, elephants and giraffes are right there in the middle of the city, with a skyscraper in the background. I would recommend this zoo experience to all the families with young kids visiting Berlin. One can get to the zoo easily with the public transport.

In the end, the Berlin TV tower (Fernsehturm) and Panoramapunkt will give you a very nice views above the whole city of Berlin.

See them and a lot more from the video Best of Berlin below –

And last but not least – Do not forget to visit the Art Market, when in Berlin.

Today’s video tells you about the Indian nature and birds.

All the photographs in this video are unstaged, portraying the real life of an Indian bird. The images are not from a zoo.

Photos were taken during ten years of travelling in India, by a Finnish gori traveller. Not that gender matters.
