Secret Garden: Exploring Berlin, Germany

We arrived in Berlin on a Saturday with plenty of time to wander, but once I saw my fluffy Westin bed, I had no desire to do anything but relax ๐Ÿ™‚ So instead of exploring, like a good tourist, I sat in my bed catching up on Netflix and picking out our dinner spot.

For dinner I choseย Cookies Cream.

I knew that is was right by the Westin, but as I was leading my family down the alley towards where I thought the restaurant was (their website gives visual aids), I was second guessing my decision. I mean what kind of restaurant is hidden down a dark alley behind a hotel?

We rang the bell and entered a dark room with a bar and some seating, very speakeasy-esque, and at this point my father is definitely giving me the “What did you get us into look”. Once our table was ready we were taken upstairs to a beautiful dining room, the perfect combination of industrial and class, nothing the dark entryway would have suggested.

The meal,

well it was excellent.

My carnivore brother wasn’t a fan of the vegetarian inspired menu, but I loved it.

 

 

 

With a full belly and a good night’s rest, I was READY to explore Berlin!

 

Got to have breakfast first..

 

 

Some walking…

 

 

The Bradenburg Gate…

 

 

The Reichstag…

 

 

 

Then we started to explore the Tiergarten, a HUGE PARK!

The Soviet War Memorial:

 

 

Then, purely by luck, we came across the most beautiful garden, The Rosengarten. It was like a secret garden hidden in the middle of this giant park.

 

 

And last but not least, The Victory Column:

 

 

I love Patterson Park in Baltimore, but the Tiergarten was AMAZING! So much room for activities ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

 

We kept walking…

 

 

and FINALLY, it was lunch time ๐Ÿ™‚

 

 

Our last “touristy” goal of the day was to learn about the Berlin Wall.

 

 

We even ended the day with a traditional meal from Max und Moritz. I hadย Kutscher Gulasch, a beef goulash served with homemade noodles.

What a beautiful city!
