Spotlight: Berlin

Berlin has been on my bucket list for a while. When I told friends I was going to Berlin they were all surprised I hadn’t been there yet given all my travels. The timing had never been right but it was for this trip and I’m so happy I included it on my trip.

Berliner Dom (aka Berlin Cathedral)

Berlin TV Tower (aka Fernsehturm)

You can book free tickets to go up the dome. You need to make reservations in advance if you want to select your date & time.

While I love staying at local hotels when I travel internationally it is nice to occasionally stay somewhere a bit more full service. I selected the Westin Grand for my 3 nights in Berlin. A big reason for my choice was that it is centrally located to all the main Berlin sites. I loved the location because I walked from the train station and to so many attractions.
