Back in January we took a research trip to Berlin!
It wasn’t the brightest of trips and we definitely didn’t go for the weather … picture cold temperatures and intermittent rain. However we have been eager to explore this hotspot of young and modern talent for a while now and thought ‘Hey! no time like the present!’.
The real stone in the crown for Berlin has got to be the street art which we found at every twist and turn. We highly recommend a bike ride along the infamous Berlin Wall to view it’s many remaining grafittied panels. In fact, we cycled our way around the entire city on our three day visit and found it a great way to see the sights.
Visiting the cities many war memorials is a must, although mentally prepare yourself for these as they can be quite haunting. We found the exhibition underneath the Memorial to the murdered Jews of Europe particularly difficult to process.
