Berlin, April 25 – May 1, 2015: vacation!

This is a photolog. For a view of all photos I took while in Berlin, please check this set on flickr: Berlin 2015

I also kept two foursquare lists of places I wanted to visit and places I wanted to check out for food and drinks: feel free to use these, I will not delete them!

Would you rather have all of these places in a Google Map? Can do!

Day 1, Den Haag-Berlin

Due to various train-related troubles, I had to take an earlier train out of The Hague to get to Berlin. Not a big deal, because I was prepared.

From The Hague straight onto Deventer, where I would catch a train to Bad Bentheim, Germany.

At Bad Bentheim, I took my seat and from there on it was smooth sailing (training?) towards Berlin!

When I arrived in Berlin, I bought a one-week public transport ticket that would get me to all the Berlin zones (A,B and C).

Just one stop with the S-Bahn to Friedrichtstrasse Station and from there a really quick walk to my Airbnb apartment at the Geschwister-Scholl-Strasse. The apartment was in a great old building, formerly part of the imperial palaces, or housing for the lower aristocracy.

My apartment was not quite ready, so I put my suitcase away and I went for a stroll. As I was right across from the Strandbar Mitte, a beer was called for!

Proost! Cheers! Zum Wohl!

As I was walking around the neighborhood north of my apartment (all part of Berlin Mitte), I came upon the former Tacheles Kunsthaus. Now completely derelict and abandoned, for decades it was a freehold for artists and activists.

That evening, I walked over to one of the restaurants on my list, Tin Tan on the Chausseestraße.
