A trip to Berlin … a destination chosen by many young people and not only. Because Berlin gives conflicting emotions. The first obligatory route leads to the curious monument to Jews who fell during the Holocaust: a series of stone parallelepipeds of varying magnitude, with no inscriptions and no photographs. A raw, hard, aseptic reminder, but it conveys the whole story that is taught here. After passing Potsdamer Platz, I head to Gendarmenmarkt, the gendarmerie marketplace, with the Konzertaus, the Berlin Philharmonic, and the two Calvinist queens that are practically the same and stand at the sides of the Konzertaus. Continuing, I arrive at Check Point Charlie, the crossing line between what was once the Russian and American borders. Everything here is beautiful: in addition to the now famous reproduction of the control cabin with the two guard soldiers, there is an authentic open-air exhibition with huge pictures along Friederichstrasse depicting the stages of approaching the construction and fall of the wall by explanations in German-English double language and many photos of the time. In a special space, a “Black box” was erected, a large room with soft lights and many memorabilia / finds of all kinds concerning the wall. Before we stop for eating we obviously walk in front of the Brandenburg Gate, erected between 1789 and 1791, and to see it in the evenings is even more impressive, thanks to the lighting, as I walk past the Column of Victory, which stands in the middle of the Tiergarten, the city park, through which I trace up to the impressive and beautiful monument to the Soviet fallen. It is impossible to see all the Tiergarten, but only a few pieces are worth it, with ponds, oases, and many walking trails to run in the middle of the greenery. From one green to the other, I then go to the Spree river (the river crossing Berlin) to one of the famous “Biergarten”, the open-air brewery by the river. With 9 euros a brezel, an Agustiner (poured directly from the barrel), and a couple of sausages, for a great aperitif. for dinner I will not tell you to eat the usual wurstel beer and sauerkraut, but I recommend the Königsberger Klopse: These meatballs, from the name of the Prussian town they come from, are very come with a special sauce: a creamy mixture of capers and lemon. They are always served with mashed potatoes, boiled potatoes or rice or the Eisbein which would be a boiled or roasted pork loin and served with boiled potatoes, sauerkraut and mustard – eating this you feel a bit German! During your trip to Berlin I recommend renting bicycles but beware! They have dedicated tracks and cyclists are criticist with those who do not respect the cyclists! If you want to rent it, count on spending 10-15 euros a day per person… I hope I did not tire you too much, if you need further suggestions write me … a hug.
