Berlin - Part 2

A bit of Window Shopping:-
The Louis Vuiton windows on Friedrichstrasse.
The same can be seen in Paris and London as well.
I love the concept and the colours!

Hermes Ku'Dam were having a sale exhibition
of "Petit H..... "

Hmm.....not sure about this.....

.....to be honest I was not impressed and
I thought it was a lot of money for what are really
just scraps of materials!  Miaow!
The Berlin Sights:-
The line marks where the Berlin Wall
once stood - this was at Postdamer  Platz.
Imagine not being able to get to the other
side - incredible how times change.

A plaque indicating what the line in the road is!
The British Embassy.

Unter den Linden is a bit of building site
at the moment!

The I M Pie designed new wing of the
Deustches Historisches Musuem
(The German History Museum)

I went to see this exhibition - it was fabulous
not too big and not too small, perfect!

The museum site.
No photos were allowed but I sneaked this one!
The dress in the middle has butterflies printed
on the material - PP, I took this for you!
The lovely covered courtyard of the museum
which links the old and new buildings.

A cute fountain with ducks near our hotel.


Berlin has loads of Horse Chestnut trees
and they were all in bloom while I was there.
A close up of the flowers - I was amazed just
how beautiful they are.
The Kitsch:-
This balcony amused me with its array of
plastic animals and gnomes!  Must have taken
someone ages to collect and arrange.

And the window next to the balcony cute!
































Hope you enjoyed my little whizz around Berlin!

  1. I've only been to Berlin once, but I loved it! I seem to remember having beers that were either green or red coloured and looked like medicine! Also some rather horrid curry sauce and chips - I think your trip was a bit more elegant than mine! The ballet looks terrific and thanks so much for the vicarious window shop! xxx

  3. The beer is called "Berliner Weisse mit Schuss"...this is beer with a little bit of rasberry or "Waldmeister" sirup (woodruff). I dont like it...but iit looks nice.
