The new German capital

Berlin, one of the greenest cities in the world with one third of the city being made up of forest and lakes.

Summer here is not to be missed with many festivals and of course weather permitting beer gardens and street cafes.

Berlin no doubt has one of the richest of European histories with the most recent being the city that was divided by a wall.

Hopefully you will enjoy my tips and they will be of use when visiting.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful city with loads of parks , lakes and forest.
  • Cons:Getting more expensive especially going out to eat and drink
  • In a nutshell:A top place to live!

    Yup, used to hit that floemarkt regularly. In all these postings about 'fast food' not one mention of Hasir's doners in Kreuzberg, the original and the best.
