As you'd expect of a major European capital, even when the weather is not particularly wonderful - in so-called 'Schmuddelwetter' - there are many things to do and see in Berlin. Our first stop is Alexanderplatz, where we ride to the top of the TV tower for one of the best views of the city. One block further, in the middle of the River Spree is the famous Museums Island.
Thousands of people visit the museums and art shops here daily. One exhibit featuring millennia-old Egyptian architecture, jewelry, and other treasures is currently on display at the Pergamon Museum. Next door, at the Alten Museum, modern art is the attraction. Our next stop takes us to the Charlottenburg district of Berlin, and a visit to the famous baroque castle.
. Castle Charlottenburg is known, not only for its beautifully maintained baroque architecture, but also for the exhibitions and social events that are regularly held there. At the moment, a unique collection of Chinese porcelain is on display. Wanting to escape the hectic of the big city, we make our way to Berlin's Botanic Gardens. The incredible variety of plants and flowers on display throughout the Gardens, and, not to mention the warmth and comfort of the huge greenhouses, make the Botanic Gardens exactly the right place to be in this less-than-perfect weather.
