I'm Going To...

Berlin!

I have a very lovely boyfriend, who has spoilt me a bit this Christmas! As a joint Christmas and 1 year anniversary (January 4th) present Josh is taking me to Berlin for 5 days. I'm really excited as I love visiting places, and although I have been to Berlin before when I was about 13 as a school trip, I didn't really appreciate it like I would as an 'adult'. 

We're leaving on January 5th, and according to the weather it's going to be very cold, with a possibility of snow! So I've gone a bit crazy on buying scarfs, hats and jumpers to keep warm. I've also been checking out all the places we want to go to and making a list of places that sound really interesting. 

As the internet is never ending, finding advice on where to go can be difficult as there is just too much information, so I thought I'd ask you guys. If any of you have ever been to Berlin and have any recommendations I'd love to hear them, or if you've written a blog post please leave a link. Maybe if you live in Berlin you could give some great advice on places to check out, or maybe you could link me to some travel blogs you think are great? 

Hoping the blogging world can help me out a bit here, Im especially looking for any restaurant and places to eat recommendations, as well as cool or interesting places to visit that maybe aren't the top tourist destinations. Also if you think there is anywhere we should leave off the list let me know, or if you've got any general advice for visiting Berlin and Germany. 

I can't wait to hear what you guys have to say, and if you've never been to Berlin is it somewhere you'd like to visit? Where is your favourite place you've visited?

  1. I went to Berlin a couple of years ago for the Christmas markets and loved it. It is so nice in the cold! You definitely need to go to the Holocaust Memorial which was amazing (though very sad of course) we also went to the SS Headquarters (I think it is called the Topography of Terror?) which was really really good as well! Hope you have a lovely trip :) x

  3. Aahhh this is so exciting! I went to Berlin almost 2 years ago and it was SUCH bad snow it was pretty beautiful actually. So definitely bring wellies/boots if it's forecast snow! (Seriously, it was calf-knee deep in some places!)

    As far as place recommendations go, I only went to the really touristy spots so I can't tell you anything that trip advisor wouldn't, but I would advise going to wat White Trash Fast Food if you can! It does the most AMAZING burgers and the atmosphere is just amazing! (It's also a bar with resident DJ and a tattoo parlour haha!) Definitely worth a trip! Hope you have an amazing time xxxxxx

    1. Ahh that snow sounds crazy! Hope my boots can cope, might have to buy a pair out there if not, which will be SUCH a shame ;) I guess the touristy places and touristy for a reason, and we will be hitting most of them up. Will add that restaurant to the list though, burgers are always a good meal and it sounds so cool!
      Thank you :D xxxx

  9. Your anniversary is on my birthday ;) WAHOOOOOOO! Have a fab time you guys, enjoy it. I wrote a blog post... some where... so I'll have to find that at some point. The Mcdonalds is amazing there. I'm not usually a Mcdonalds fan but they have cool things on their menus compared to ours! Not the most exciting place but it's cheap ;) xx
