Einigkeit und Recht und Freiheit


Berlin

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.

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.

As for VW enthusiasts, the Motherland awaits just an hour west. Take an ICE (InterCity Express) train from any hauptbahnhof or main central station.
