BERL-insanity October 5, 2013

The Brandenburg Gate

The temperature dropped even lower as we made our way into Berlin.  Short for time, we opted for the free walking tour of the city’s major sites.  We saw everything from the Hotel where Michael Jackson held his kid out the window, to the Berlin Wall, and Hitler’s Bunker.

The Voids – a tribute to those lost

We also managed to make it over to the Holocaust Memorial, as well as the Jewish museum, both of which were incredible sites to see in themselves.   The designer of the memorial wanted viewers to see it not knowing what it was, and for each person to have their own take away from it.  The Jewish museum is designed with voids to represent the number of lives lost throughout the Holocaust.

The history was incredible.  The city was beautiful, and massive.  We even had a little taste of home before heading back to Metz. 😀 Burgers and Blueberry Pancakes…how I missed you.
