silvester in berlin

New Year's Eve began as all days should - with a fantastically indulgent breakfast of Apfelstrudel and Rote Grütze (with lashings of vanilla sauce, of course) at Leysieffer, a wonderful chocolate shop.

With sufficient sugar to fuel our day's sightseeing, we visited Brandenburger Tor, (already busy ahead of the evening's Silvester celebrations), the Reichstag and the Holocaust Memorial.

We then visited Potsdamer Platz, had a bumpy ride on the 'Rodelbahn', and admired the beautiful Christmas decorations inside the shopping arcade there.

We weren't brave enough to face the freezing cold festivities at Brandenburger Tor that evening, but we nonetheless had a fantastic time at e4 Club - although our early morning flight home the next day wasn't quite so thrilling...!
