Berlin break ideas
Now Mrs Foodie loves Berlin a little too much. If only she had stuck in at school and passed that Higher German we would probably be there full time. However, we make do with our yearly pilgrimage to all things Berlin and Germany.
Is everywhere, from burgers to kebabs to currywurst. You certainly will never starve.
Burgermeister located in an old toilet, the burgers are ace.
Burgers and beer, our review here.
Retro cafe on the impressive Communist housing of Karl Marx Allee. Review here.
Currywurst at one of the original Berlin takeaways. Review here.
Henne – located a stones throw from the wall, chicken is it’s top draw.
Here are a bundle of breweries to visit whilst in Berlin.
Unsurprisingly located in East Berlin, Ostel is what my ideal holiday home would look like. Strange. I do like a quirky place to stay, and being a 70’s kid love the kitsch decor.
Budget accommodation near the Olympic Stadium.
Gleis 17 – Platform 17
Visit a memorial to those deported to camps during WW II by railway,
Get a birds eye view of Berlin from here. Well worth a visit.
The Palace of Tears, the old crossing point from East/West Berlin.
Cost to get in, but a great big building where you can get a glimpse into the workings of the Stasi.
Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp
Within reach of Berlin and the railway station is covered by the S bahn network. Free. Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp
East Side Gallery
A free and outside area near Warschauer Strasse and near the River Spree.
Of course you can’t fail to notice the Germans do like their beer, as do we. Each time we visit we take our trusty Berlin Beer Book and attempt to mark off some more.
Quell Eck – Bar boasts the oldest operating font in Germany.
Felsenkeller – birds hanging from the ceiling and a good range of beer.
Cafe Hallenbad – Another hidden bar.
