Seeing my time in Berlin was coming to an end after amazing trips into the city at the Templehof Airport and undertaking walking tours aplenty to discover the Best of Berlin and the cultural and historical side to the capital, I thought the next best thing was to get lost in Berlin. A sprawling metropolis that has been the focus of many ideologies throughout the 20th century, I thought I would take a wander and absorb the differing cultures, architecture, landmarks and unique places that the most popular tourist destination in Germany brings. Come and walk with me as I meander through the streets of Berlin and enjoy my goofy take on my journey.

Berlin  An absolutely perfect way to get around is by the reliable metro. It’s absolutely dirt cheap to travel on it if you compare the prices to London’s tube and you can even by a 2/4 day tourist card very cheaply to sightseeing Berlin for the weekend. As I stated, Berlin is absolutely humongous and if you want to look after those sore-prone feet, you can get to landmarks rather quickly.

If you need to ride the metro, just look out for the signs, U-bahns or S-bahns that will criss cross and encircle Berlin. At this particular time, I was delighted to be coming out at the perfect sunset with the iconic TV Tower (based in Alexanderplatz) in the distance. That is, if you can get those pesky people out of the way as I yelled at them to move so i can take this picture. So about this TV Tower…

Berlin

This syringe looking needle striking fear into hearts is actually modelled on the first spacecraft – Sputnik. Known as the Fernsehturm, this is the fourth tallest freestanding structure in Europe and what’s absolutely fantastic about it is that it’s got its very own revolving restaurant in the middle of the sphere! This 365 metre high landmark is a brilliant focal point for anyone in Berlin to find your orientation within the city as I found to be the case myself. If you really want to have a good close up view of it, why not take the U-bahn to Alexanderplatz.

If you’re feeling hungry in Frankfurter Tor like this crazy blonde German, why not try out the many restaurants that line the streets here? With delights of different delicious cuisines, you will salivating at each menu placed before you. Whatever you do, don’t stick two chips in your mouth and pretend to be a walrus…

Berlin

Keep your eyes peeled out for the iconic Berliner Green Man that has its own cult following and even its own shop! I remember when I saw this for the first time and I commentated to my friend, Bente, ‘is this meant to be a racy Green Man? I mean, he’s looking like he’s very pleased, if you get what I mean…’ Splitting her sides with laughter, Bente informed me that is the Berlin Green Man and it’s actually his other arm protruding out of his body not the appendage that I was ashamedly thinking of…

And of course, in a photo post, I wasn’t going to let you read an article without a handsome picture of myself wasn’t I? As you can see, I was still sunburnt from my journey around the East Side Gallery yesterday..ouch!

Berlin

Don’t forget to sample the legendary German Beers. It had to be done.

Somehow, throughout the walking around, I still ended up at Brandenburg Tor. Who’s Jennifer? Well that’s for you to find out…perhaps I’ll just have a natter with my current German love around the corner at the Reichstag.

Berlin

If you are looking for some pretty unique and warm architecture that hasn’t been born out of concrete sixties or the totalitarian architecture of the Third Reich, head on over to Mauerpark and you’ll see some quaint and charming townhouses along grandiose streets. Bente had to drag me off from admiring them for too long and distract me with even more poses of myself and the sun…

Berlin

The highlight of my wanderings definitely has to be the linear Mauerpark. Based in the ‘Death Strip’ between the two walls of Berlin, this terrifying piece of land in the 20th century during the Cold War has been pleasantly turned into a park for all visitors and residents who can partake in any activity. This is truly the epitome of freedom in a city so divided for nearly 45 years. It is recommended you come here on the Sunday where Flohmarkt am Mauerpark (the Flea market) is set up with loose grid stalls along the long strip that is becoming a popular tourist destination. Unfortunately, I wasn’t there on a Sunday but never fear, I shall be back. Here are some pictures below.

It’s so easy to get lost in Berlin and discover unique and local activities and places to sightsee and do. If you’re ever there in the capital of Germany, just take a wander and use the TV Tower as your orientation guide. I guarantee you, you won’t be disappointed.

Now it’s time for me to leave Berlin and go home. Diddums.
