Berlin triptips and travel experiences

Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin

I travelled Berlin the first time in 2015 and immediately fancied the Berlin-Tegel airport. The easiness of traveling onwards from there is worth mentioning . Had read a lot of positive reviews about Pergamom museum in the Berlin Museum Island 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 Neues Museum in Berlin 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 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.

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