brilliant berlin

My boyfriend and I recently spent a few days in Berlin to celebrate Weihnachten and Silvester. The Christmas atmosphere was wonderful, with dazzling lights adorning the streets and monuments.

Our fabulous hotel, the Hilton am Gendarmenmarkt

Berliner Dom

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!

Guten Appetit!
