Berlin was great – as always.

I visited on a sunny weekend in August, a beautiful time to go.

For the first time I managed to visit the Reichstag (it’s free to go but you must book in advance).

The cool cupola by British architect Norman Foster is definitely worth a visit.

And it’s a great place to take weird self-portraits.

The street art around the East Side Gallery was a bit more damaged than I remembered.

But it’s still quite impressive.

And there are lots of other great street art all around the city.

This was also the first time I visited the impressive Berlin Cathedral.

Sundays in Berlin are always great for brunch.

After eating at the lovely Napol Jonska in Prenzlauer Berg, we walked around Mauer Park.

This is a great area to see remains of the Berlin Wall in a less touristic area.

But we also stopped at some of the highlights – like the Brandenburg Gate and the memorial next to it.
