The bed was a bit too soft in my hotel. Otherwise, it was restful night of sleep. I probably still didn’t completely adjust to European timezone and still got up around 5am. That’s not bad, I ended up watching “Home Improvement” in German. The character in the show dubbed perfectly well in German =P (especially Tim Allen)
I started the travel early at 7am. The street was quite deserted. I walked to the Zoo station from my hotel which took only 10 mins. It was a little chilly with the wind but the day become quite warm as the sun really climbed up. After purchasing 3 days city tour pass, I head to Postdam Plaz hoping to see a small section of Berlin wall. That small section was really just 5/6 slab of wall used as exhibition to show the history of the wall. I felt a bit cheated… what? all i could see are the new huge shopping centre!?
Of course, you can’t go to Berlin without checking out its famous glass dome shape observation of the parliament building. The line-up was already long for me but it just kept growing even longer after I finished my visit. It is so amazingly pretty. Both the glass dome itself and the view from there.
The rest of that day activity was a bit blurry now. It was definitely a lot of walking. The only thing I remember was by 3pm, I finally reaalize my two pages description from rough guide for the entire europe will not do the job. So I stopped by “Berlin Story” to buy “top 10 berlin guide”. That was really helpful. I highly recommend this brand and style of guide for visit under 4 days.
