Berlin - Meike

  1. 1. Berlin My favourite city By Meike
  2. 2. Sightseeing The three sights you must see: East Side Gallery The East Side Gallery is an international memorial for freedom. It is a 1.3 km long section of the Berlin Wall.
  3. 3. Sightseeing Brandenburger Gate (Tor) The Brandenburger Tor, landmark of Germany. The big entry of Berlin. You can walk through it and take a walk in the big park behind it, with shops and hotels for rich people.
  4. 4. Sightseeing The Berlin Bear Because of Berlins symbol, the bear, you can find real ones in some parts of the city! All in all you can find 24 bears living in little parks surrounded by water, so you don't have to worry about your safety! And the best thing? It's completly free!
  5. 5. Local customs If you go into a place of workship there aren't any dress rules. Of course you shouldn't walk in a place of worksip wearing a bikini, wear at least something that covers your breast and bottom. Berlin is full of crazy people, called Berlin Freaks, that wear everything you can imagine. But take care of what you're saying in public. You shouldn't make jokes about Germanys history. Neither insult gay people in public. German people don't like people who judge other peoplein public and maybe they would understand it wrong. If you take a taxi or eat in a restaurant, don't worry abot what to tip. It's your choice! They would'nt be angry if you don't give them any money. It's not a really comun thing to give waiters or taxi drivers more than 2 or 3 Euros extra money..
  6. 6. Shopping A good souvenir to take back with you could be one of the famous Berlin, Berlin shirts and bags or a small bear for your keys, that you can find in almost every tourist shop. And if you really want to go shopping visit the big Alexa Hall where you can find nearly every shop or you can take a metro to Kudamm street,a long shopping mall. Berlin is the best place to haggle. There are some small markets in Friedrichstraße, the best ones to find vintage pieces that no one else has in his wardrobe.
  7. 7. Food and drinks If you like trying food from different countrys, and you want to get to know what Berliner eat, try Currywurst! It's a delicious sausage with sauce and fries or Wiener, sausages with potato salat. But be careful when you eat it, they are also selled in a really spicy version that you better should'nt eat if you don't want your throat to burn! You can combine it with a fresh beer or water, which is drinkable too!
  8. 8. So why did you choose Berlin? nnnThe answer is easy- It's my hometown! I'm born in Berlin Neukölln and part of my family is still living there. I lived there until I was seven but now I'm living in a smaller town. I really miss the trouble, the strange people, the art and music, the different cultures and having all the shops you like in front of your door. I also think, it's a really interesting city with a lot of sights and parts you must visit. And it's really big. You'd never get bored of it! I personally would recommend you to visit the East Side Gallery, if you don't know where to go. It's amazing and completly free! It's so much fun taking photos in front of the wall with the amazing paintings!
