My sister and I recently took a weekend trip to Berlin, a much needed break from work and a sister reunion after being six months apart! As you guys know by now, Chai and Lipstick is written by four authors, my three sisters and I, it keeps us connected as we all live in different cities now, with the girly chats we had growing up and sharing our tips with our gang is what we really enjoy 🙂 just wanted to take a moment to thank you all for showing us love and being a part of the Chai & Lipstick family 😉
When we told our friends we were going to Berlin we mostly got the question : “WHY BERLIN?” and after my weekend there I really need to ask them “WHY NOT BERLIN?”, No beaches in Berlin but we had the most chilled out weekend there, Berlin is filled with some really adventurous things to do, a history that comes alive when you walk around the city, a haven for artists, music and party lovers, a treat for foodies! It’s a place where all you have to do to have a great time is just – Be You!
Take A Guided Tour
You will find many guided tours around the city, we took a free guided tour which takes you around giving you a glimpse into The history of Berlin.
Don’t Forget to tip your guide after the tour.
Don’t Forget to BEER
Ampelmann Restaraunt Great place with an amazing view, must visit for it’s chilled out atmosphere and great food!
East Side Gallery
The Gallery consists of 105 paintings by artists from all over the world, painted in 1990 on the east side of the Berlin Wall.
You can stop by the riverside restaraunts for a sausage and beer break – Berlin Style!
At night this place is a party lovers haven, we found a really great underground club Watergate here with two floors of amazing music and a luxurious riverside lounge. Unfortunately photographs were not allowed so we don’t have any to share with you, but yes all we can say while exploring the nightlife in Berlin don’t forget to add this side of the city in your list!
Fernsehturm – TV TOWER
A 360 degrees view of Berlin city! It is the tallest structure in Germany, and the second tallest structure in the European Union (368 metres) .
While we were here we went to the island of museum’s – Neues Museum where the beautiful statue of Queen Nefertiti is exhibited.
On the top floor of the Hotel Bikini Berlin is this amazing roof top lounge bar, with great music and a panoramic view of the night lit Berlin this bar is definitely on our Berlin to-go list! During the day, the monkey’s from the zoo opposite are visible 🐵
BEERS WITH BREAKFAST
When in Berlin do it the Berlin-style! Our last day started with a long walk through a dense forest and when Rachel was almost dying ( she loves to attract attention) we stopped to have breakfast – sausages and Berlin beer!
We went to the Mauerpark this place was filled with loads of people, there was a flea market and loads of things to eat along with great music! A must visit if you are in Berlin on a Sunday.
We missed Amanda & Ingrid hopefully the next reunion we post will be with us four together!
I will surely go back to Berlin to visit more museums, to do the raft ride that we didn’t get to do and a barbecue in the park!
Behind the scenes
Have a great weekend!
