Willkommen in Berlin!

Standard

On our second day in Berlin, our third item of the day was a tour through the Reichstag building, home to Germany’s government.

We explored the Holocaust Memorial near the Brandenburger Tor.

After dinner on our first day in Berlin, we did a little bit of exploring through the streets near the hostel.

Berlin has an amazing amount of street art and graffiti, as we were quick to find out.

On Monday, after touring museums on the Museumsinsel, we explored Berlin by ourselves. In addition to graffiti, Berlin has many large murals, not unlike Philadelphia. Here, Veronica and Steve take pictures of one.
