Berlin Fernsehturm. “Do you want to discover Berlin 360°? Then you’re in just the right place at the TV tower. From 203 and 207 metres high you can look out over the entire city with its large number of tourist attractions: you can see the Reichstag (Parliament building), the Brandenburg Gate and the Main Railway Station from here, as well as the Olympic Stadium, the Museum Island (Museumsinsel) and the Potsdam Square (Potsdamer Platz).With almost 1.2 million visitors every year, the Berlin TV tower is one of the most popular attractions for tourists in Berlin. Considering the large number of visitors it is well worth booking your tickets in advance online. Visitors wishing to book a fixed date and time for their visit in advance would do well to buy our VIP-Tickets.If you are curious to find out what views await you, then please click on our 360° Panorama. But this virtual view cannot compare with the live-experience at the TV tower!” http://www.tv-turm.de/en/index.php
Another set of photos taken in June when I traveled to Berlin with my sister.
Berlin has always been on my list to visit and I’m glad it’s now ticked. It’s fair to say that I’m fascinated by their history and culture. I thought the city had a relaxing vibe and overall the people were friendly.
At the beginning I was a bit disappointed because I had higher expectations from Berlin. People I know who have been there hyped the city to the max and I’ve been told that my personality will suit Berlin. I did not see it.
They do have a good night life and some of the bars we went to were interesting and each one has their own character. I can see why people working in the music industry are moving here in droves.
I recommend doing Berlin’s Alternative Pub Crawl if you’re not sure where to go. Stag groups and highly intoxicated people are not allowed to join the pub crawl so that’s a bonus. Especially if you want to spend your night with decent people. We went to a ping pong bar, a goth horror rock bar and an absinthe bar. The pub crawl started at a 60′s, 70′s, 80′s flower power hippie bar called Yesterday Bar. It was a good night and we didn’t come back to our hostel until at least 7am.
If you need a crash course on all-things-Berlin, I also suggest that you do SANDEMANs Free Walking Tour. It’s a 2-hour walking tour and their tour guides are knowledgeable, honest and relatable. We did the morning tour as it allowed us to go back to our hostel and chill before we did the pub crawl.
Another thing that you should try in Berlin is cycling. I live in London and I would never consider cycling on the roads here as most drivers in London are mad. I thought drivers in Berlin are considerate not only to pedestrians but also to cyclists. I did witness some crazy cyclists while we were there and you wouldn’t want to be on their way.
