Berlin, Germany Part I

[nggallery id=61 template=”caption”]

I stayed at a large youth hostel on east end of Berlin, it was a little far out from the city center so it accommodated mostly folks with cars.  It was a bit lonely to stay in this place where most people aren’t really backpackers. But its transportation was easy and fast (though expensive), so I could get to most of the places without too much hassle.

To keep myself from being lonely walking around the city, I joined Berlin free tour.  If United States has a short history, Germany has an even shorter one.  During which this capital city played important role in its brilliant history and culture.  I loved my funny American tour guide showed us traces of history throughout our 3 hour tour.  Starting with the faceoff of American and French embassies at Brandenburg Gate, to Hitler’s final death place which now a parking lot, to Holocaust Memorial, to Charles Check Point, I felt like I was going through its history in a nutshell.  Overall, I highly recommend fellow backpackers this famous free tour (free with tips of course)
