Touristing Berlin

Touristing Berlin

After Hamburg Mum, Dad, Vivien, and I all went to Berlin and it was tops. We did all the cheesy touristy stuff, but also rode bikes around and explored the suburbs and had a fun picnic in the park to celebrate Vivien's birthday.

Pergamon Museum

We were staying near Hackescher Markt, well located near the good bits. We had breakfast at a simple but tasty little cafe near the hotel then headed out to the Pegamon museum.

I'd been before (1998) but it was great to see it again as we'd all visited the Pergamon architectural site in Turkey since then.

Sightseeing & Being Tourists

Viv's Birthday Celebrations

We celebrated Vivien's birthday with a picnic in the park and dinner at the Georg Bräu.

There was a really good bakery

I'm a big fan of these sandwiches. Dark grain bread, cream cheese, basic, sultanas, cherry tomatoes, honey, walnuts (trust me it works). Viv seems to like them.

Bike Day with Viv

Viv and I hired bikes and explored the city. Bikes are fun.
