Einigkeit und Recht und Freiheit
Berlin in Spring
Berlin will exceed your expectations and shatter your preconceptions. With limited German, I made my way around this city flailing my arms, French, and some Spanish. While walking through Alexanderplatz, I heard Russian, Farsi, Italian, Dutch, and English spoken. Try the currywurst and döner. Don’t forget the beer.
Potsdam: Keep Calm and Stay on the Bahn
If you’re looking for a day trip without having to shell out extra cash (assuming you’ve purchased an ABC zone ticket), Potsdam is just the right place. Rent a bike and explore this lovely town. Yes, Park Sanssouci is worth it with its palaces, monuments and even an UNESCO world heritage site.
Wolfsburg: Gearheads Only
As for VW enthusiasts, the Motherland awaits just an hour west. Take an ICE (InterCity Express) train from any hauptbahnhof or main central station.
