This time around I was determined to see Berlin and Munich after hearing rave reviews of both cities for years. Our first stop was Berlin and we spent about 5 days there. We did a walking tour the day we landed. The tour provided such a great overview of this historically important city, it was easy for us to decide where to explore in detail for the next few days. This is what we like to do all the time ;) Our guide was so passionate and knowledgeable, it was a really interactive and enjoyable way to learn about Berlin!
Reichstag Building, home of the German Parliament
Berlin Wall, East Side Gallery
Inside Berlin Cathedral
Museum islandOur next stop was Munich; a little less serious and a whole lot more beer...(Munich is the home to Oktoberfest). This city also went through so much during World War II. The entire city was nearly destroyed and had to be rebuilt. I'm grateful that the people of Munich chose to rebuild to how it was originally so we get to enjoy the history just that much more!
