Berlin, a walk trough history.

Wednesday, April 08, 2015

Hi to you all,

Sorry for my absence.  Last week I spend my time in the beautiful Berlin. It was a college trip where we did various projects, but we also got lot of free time. In this post I'm taking you to my favorites places of history. 


If you go to Berlin, you should definitely visit the Story of Berlin. It's an interactive walk trough history. At the end there is also a tour trough the old bomb shelter.


We also walked along the Holocaust memorial. Standing there creates a mix of feelings. The memorial is beautiful and fun to walk trough. But at the same time you remember why it is standing there. The painful history of Berlin. Take your time to remember the past. 

It's pretty impossible to be in Berlin without having pictures of a piece of the wall, another interesting part of history. Many took pictures at East-side-Gallery of the men kissing but I loved this part of the remaining wall the most.

One of the days we went to the house of the Wannsee conference. If you're fancying a Dutch guide ask for it. We had the coolest guide ever. The story is once again mind fucking because I couldn't understand how cruel people were in the past.

If you're having lots of free time, you should go to park Sans Souci. You won't regret it. The building on the picture is former summer palace of king Federic. Fun fact: you have to wear giant slippers during your visit. The park also has the Chinese paviljoen. So take a day off and walk trough this beautiful park.

Sachenhausen was a nazi concentration camp in Oranienburg, almost an hour from Berlin. Me and my classmates were in shock when we left. We just can't understand how cruel people can be to each other but we also realized that this is still going on. Think about IS for example.  Worth a visit because by seeing and hearing the gruel, we understand the world better.


I'll show you some more of our trip soon. Until then enjoy the video I created with the pictures I took.

  2. Leuk verslag! Ik ben jaren terug naar Berlijn geweest en had het geluk om bij een local te kunnen logeren en rondgeleid te worden. Berlijn wordt zwaar onderschat en is echt een prachtige stad.
