Berlin and its Walls

Have just come back from a brief visit to Berlin where we had a taste of Berlin's underground art, shops, music, culture and history. Spent a good deal walking around the city seeing Berlin icons and viewing a vast display of arts in what remains of the Berlin wall.

What to drink: dunkel, wheat bear...

What to eat: Schnitzel, currywurst...

What to see: Reichstag - brilliant work of architecture; Jewish Museum Berlin; Berlin Wall...

Where to stay: The Circus Hostel, slap bang in the center, clean, newly refurbished, very friendly and helpful staff, cool bar, cafe, free wifi, comfortable beds and quiet bedrooms, very reasonably priced.

Where to eat: Deponie # 3, Fabische

Where to head for music: Schokolada, great live music and nice relaxed atmosphere

Beer garden: Prater
