Berlin: A Photo-Essay

As I have taken hundreds of photos on my last trip to Berlin, I thought it would be fitting to end my series of posts about the city with a photo-essay.

I adore Berlin. The people are friendly and smiley. The transport systems (both public and private taxis) are cheap and easy to navigate, there is a diverse assortment of food, and there are of course, some stunning hotels to lay your head at night.

But what I love most, is unearthing a little bit more of Germany’s, and in particular – Berlin’s history each time I go there. I am completely fascinated by the stories of the wars, the human accounts, the Wall, the legends. Germany’s history reveals itself throughout Berlin, with educational trips to museums and exhibitions dotted around the city.

But history aside, the German capital is a trendy, fashion-conscious city, which makes it an ideal destination for a glam weekend city-break.

So without further delay, here are my favorite images from my trip to Berlin:
