Our fabulous hotel, the Hilton am Gendarmenmarkt
Christmas decorations at Checkpoint Charlie
We arrived in the afternoon, and took in some sights before going to the Pergamon Museum, which is a treasure trove of fascinating relics:
On our way back we stopped at Fassbender & Rausch, an amazing chocolate shop with famous sights such as the Reichstag, Brandenburger Tor, die Gedächtniskirche and even a volcano made out of chocolate - serious restraint had to kick in...
We had dinner at Gendarmerie, which has a wall with a huge painting across it - and the food was equally colourful and spectacular!
