The Berlin Wall, Charlottenburg and more hot chocolate

You can’t go to Berlin without visiting the Berlin wall.

But you all knew that right?

I don’t actually know what I thought it would be like. I didn’t think it would be covered in graffiti the way it was that is for sure.

IMG_6673We stopped off for lunch at Pirates which do great food and it is literally by the Berlin Wall. Thank God for that, I couldn’t feel my fingers and toes any longer and needed comfort food. I think the soup and burger and fries definitely cured my frozen toe feeling.

IMG_6675The chicken burger was awesome.

Our last and final ‘touristy’ place to visit: Charlottenburg.

IMG_6763I was amazed at the palace and how it lit up:) stunning! Eman what exactly caught your eye, camera is this way.

IMG_6782The Christmas market was definitely the busiest we have seen and I am not surprised, it was huge, with lots of different stalls from natural soaps to jewelry to sheepskin gloves and scarves and for a fraction of the price of UGGS, a bargain.

IMG_6781The hot chocolate was the best I had tasted at these markets. How cute are these mugs? You pay an 3 euros as a deposit so you don’t run off with the mug. My friend pointed out later, well it is only 3 euros, so you could have walked off with it! It definitely was a cool mug.

We headed to dinner not long after visiting the market. Pushing a buggy with the mass of people that were there was a bit too much.

IMG_6797Our ‘last Supper’. I loved the christmassy feel to the place:)

What a great trip it was, I will definitely make a return visit, maybe in the Summer, a change from being wrapped up from head to toe everyday.
