Our shore excursion to Berlin began at 7.30am with a long drive through the countryside from Warnemunde. It was raining on and off but we saw plenty of the countryside. A dominating feature are the huge windmills – not like the ones in Holland – modern, power generating windmills. Clean energy.
The Berlin adventure was mostly a ‘drive-around’ with photo stops at the Brandenburg Gate, Check-point Charlie, shopping, a river cruise (which was very uneventful) and lots of rain. We passed Angela Merkel’s residence and saw the museums (from the outside). This is certainly a city to come back to. It is very impressive.
The tour guides tell us much about the history of the cities, and the one we had in Berlin was very good. Knowledgeable and entertaining.
I’ll write more about Berlin another time – it was interesting on so many levels.
