travel diary: museums and markets | berlin, germany

By December 3, 2013 europe, germany, travel, travel diary

After breakfast, the day continued with some exploring around town…Berlin cityBerlin cityBerlin city bridge

A few snaps before heading into the DDR museum. For those of you wanting a brief history of what it was like living with the Berlin during the times of the Wall, this is the perfect museum for you.

Instead of being punched in the face with miles of depressing facts that I (and maybe you?) can’t begin to comprehend, the museum is actually quite interactive offering touch-and-feel examples of what life was like under the German Socialist state. Perfect for numpties like me. Berlin city DDRBerlin cityBerlin city DDR

On the way to the next stop, a quick stop for some bratwurst was necessary for the hangry ones…

To end the night, our fabulous hosts took us to the street food markets which is held every. Held in Markthalle Neun, Eisenbahnstraße 42/43, Kreuzberg from 17:00 – 22:00 every Thursday.

Here you can taste a varying range of food stuffs, sample local wine and of course there is glühwein (mulled wine) by the bucketload.

From Big Stuff Smoked BBQ serving beef brisket sandwiches to Fräulein Kimchi serving Korean salads, there are options for all tastes.

My fav was the rib roll thingy served by Big Stuff Smoked BBQ. Think juicy rib meat, mayo, some kind of red sauce topped with bacon & potato crisps.

And don’t go past the Vietnamese pork bun served by Zahause Berlin. Delicious pork buns filled with pickles, horseradish and pork belly. Be prepared to wait though, it’s at least 30 minutes for one of these babies.

And of course, wash it down with some of the local wine.

Full to the brim, we (or I actually) headed off to bed to re-charge for the next day.

The same can’t be said about my party-goer travelling buddies. Needless to say I felt far better the next day for it 🙂 but when in Berlin right? 

Read about how lame a tourist I can be here (released Dec 5).
