berlin wall + checkpoint charlie.

Even though Berlin is ever evolving and new, modern buildings are popping up everywhere, there is also an enormous amount of history in the city. I’m usually not one to find too much interest in history, but for Berlin it was different. I really wanted to visit the wall and see checkpoint charlie. It felt weird being by the original parts of the wall and thinking about how that exact wall changed the lives of so many people. Mostly in a bad way! It sort of put things in perspective a little and reminded me how wonderful my life is and how thankful I am for the freedom we have now-a-days.

Before heading back to Austria we were able to stop at a christmas market for some “Curry Wurst” –  a must when in Berlin. The one we had probably wasn’t the most authentic version (I thought it is supposed to be cut up?!) but at least I have a good reason to come back soon for an authentic “Curry Wurst” :)

    When I was in Munich we spent almost the entire day at the amazing Christmas market, shopping for souvenirs to take home to family and enjoying mulled wine and amazing food. It was a highlight of the trip!

    Did they fry the sausage? If yes it’s as “original Berlin” as it can get when it comes to Currywurst. Rheinländer like me of course do not approve ;)

  6. Tolle Bilder. Berlin ist sicher eine tolle Stadt!! Steht auch noch auf meiner ‘must-visit’-Liste. :)
    Wonderful and Marvelous
