One of the many advantages of having a lovely German boyfriend, is the low cost trips back to his homeland!
We've just returned from what was my 4th trip to Berlin, and as predicted it was blooming awesome! We had an extreme spectrum of weather from a balmy 37°C day of sunshine to the most electric lightning storm I've ever seen! Having stayed in the leafy Charlottenburg for nearly 2 weeks, we had ample time to take in all the city had to offer!
An absolute highlight (which I highly recommend) was going to Fete De La Musique. A free music festival all over the city! We ran around Prenzlaurg Berg feasting on all sorts of musical treats, right from acapella rock groups, swing bands, brass bands to live Electro House from Modeselektor in Mauerpark!
As well as the festival, we went swimming in the very beautiful lake in Schlachtensee,climbed the dome of the Reichstag, had the best beer and pizza's at Cafe am Neuen See and schleusenkrug (2 amazing beer gardens in Tiergarten Park... GO!) and just generally walked aimlessly about town.
Berlin, Ich Liebe Dich!
