Berlin – Then and Now!

Our craze for the ‘City of Design’ is never-ending and that is the reason why we have visited it twice. Berlin, as a city, completes a full circle in terms of what it offers. It has culture, cuisine, art, technology, history, tourism, medicine and health, infrastructure, architechture, corporates, media, education, night life, festivals, recreations and sports.

The “Then” in the title refers to our first visit to the city in 2012 AND “Now” refers to our trip on the New Year’s eve in 2014-15. When you are in Berlin for the first time, there is always a dilemma of where to start the explorations from. However, we have a couple-friend in Berlin and they showed us across the whole city. The most interesting part of the trip was visiting the “mittel punkt” of the city, that our friend had explored as a small boy during an evening stroll with his grandma. A glimpse of our first visit is here.

Here I raise the curtains for our second visit. We thought nothing can be better than stepping into New Year 2015 in the ‘City of Festivals’, and so Berlin was the best choice.

It definitely was the most celebrated new year’s eve for us and we wish to visit Berlin again and explore its rich culture and cuisines.

Thank you readers. I hope you enjoyed reading it.
