Let’s travel Berlin through the eyes of a short visitor, our very own @terezalitsa! Each Printl travelogue has a different point of view and that’s what we love most. Whether you’re a local, or a tourist, your unique perspective can create an interesting travel post, hoping to inspire our community to keep taking photos, sparking the all-time favorite wanderlust that we all have.
Just like that, Tereza captured her visit to Berlin and was impressed by the contradictions, the people, the colours, the lifestyle, the green living and of course, the culture!
Berlin is the epitome of the modern city, offering endless opportunities to enjoy it, whether you prefer art, history, architecture, eating, drinking, or cycling! Berlin is the capital of Germany with 3.5 million people and it’s actually the 7th most populous area in the European Union. It is well known for the combination of culture, politics, art, science and technology, always in a way that values the high quality of life, raising the standards for other big and modern cities.
We are starting with the Brandenburg Gate (Brandenburger Tor), an 18th-century neoclassical triumphal arch in Berlin, which is also one of the most iconic landmarks in Germany.
Potsdamer Platz is now a central and popular public square that has been significantly redeveloped after 1995, giving a glimpse of the future for Berlin’s growth.
A walk towards the Museum Island in the River Spree is always a good idea, especially on a sunny day!
The East Side Gallery is an open-air exhibition featuring art painted directly on the last existing portions of the Berlin Wall. It is the largest remaining evidence of the city’s historical division.
History and colours blend in such a great way!
If you’re not afraid of heights, then you need to visit the TV Tower (the Fernsehturm) at Alexanderplatz. It was built in 1969 and it is one of the tallest structures in European Union, reaching at 368 m.
This is the view you get from 204 m! Well worthy, isn’t it?
Street art is so interesting in Berlin that it could even turn into a whole new post!
A mint tea at Cafe Oliv, breakfast delights from Zeit für Brot and straight to the U-Bahn.
The Tiergarten is Berlin’s largest park and was designed by Peter Joseph Lenné. This was ideal for a quiet Sunday walk!
Berlin is well known for its highly developed bicycle lane system. It is estimated that Berlin has 710 bicycles per 1000 residents!
East Side Gallery is a must-visit for the tourists!
Sunday always allows you to appreciate a quiet city even more!
The Museum Island in the River Spree houses five museums built from 1830 to 1930 and is a UNESCO World Heritage site. After a full day of sightseeing, a moment in the green grass was needed to actually enjoy the sun!
How about a cruise to the River Spree?
You cannot miss the Neues Museum, and the Pergamonmuseum, one of the world’s major archaeological museums. From a partial recreation of the Pergamon Altar (170–159 BC) to the two-storey Roman Gate of Miletus (29 metres wide and almost 17 metres high), you definitely need time to admire them all!
First, let’s take a photo!
East Side Gallery is dedicated to art and preserves the paintings made on the eastern side when the Wall was brought down.
