Exploring Berlin






 

Μost travelers choose to visit Berlin , the Capital of Germany is the heart of Europe and full of history It’s maybe not the prettiest European city but if you’re interested in Nightlife or culture  you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for in Berlin .The locals are very hospitable and polite. There are many immigrants from all over Europe. they create a very warm atmosphere and from day to day you fall in love with this city. 


We chose to visit the city in the autumn but the best time is the summer. Because many concerts and events take place in and around the city. Cycling will be more enjoyable in the big parks that the city offers from Brandenburg Tor to Zoologischer garten berlin .



We were lucky the weather was wonderful. From the very first moment we rented a bicycle to explorer the city and we bought the Berlin Welcome card which we have free access to public transport and discount a variety of museums and attractions (Berlin Welcome Card). Driving a bike is very safe. Most locals use a bicycle for their daily needs. there are almost everywhere bicycle paths in the city.

Places to Visit

There are plenty of places to visit and more than 200 museums we have chosen most popular in combination with our preferences.Berlin is the city where everyone is visiting for a different reason. Surely you will want to visit the city again because one time is not enough.

Brandenburger Tor (Brandenburg Gate)

Ιs one of Germany’s most visited landmarks and an icon of the city of Berlin. During its more than 300-year history, it has played many different roles. It has been a symbol for peace, war, victory, terror and war all over (that time the cold one) and since 1989 it stands for the reunification of Germany. Here, Ronald Reagan said his famous words:  “Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate. Mr. Gorbachev,  tear down this wall”. Special Tip: Go there by night! There will be less people and the chance to get a pic in front of the illuminated Brandenburger Tor with no one else on it than you is huge.




Pergamon Museum

The Pergamon Museum is filled with classical sculpture, imposing architecture, colorful tapestries and enough historical artifacts to drive a thousand Indiana Jones films. Highlights include the famous Ishtar Gate, a fragment from the Epic of Gilgamesh, and the Market Gate of Milete.
There are three major thematic sections at Berlin's world-famous Pergamon Museum - the Antiquity Collection, the Islamic Art Museum, and the Middle East Museum.
The works come from Ancient Greece, Rome, Babylon and the Middle East and show how advanced these ancient societies were. One highlight is the Ishtar Gate. This bright blue glazed-brick wall is decorated with gods of the city in the shape of dragons, lions and bulls.
A stone fragment of the Epic of Gilgamesh is a section of one of the oldest pieces of literature in the world - the tale of this hero echoes in the works of Homer and the Bible.

Siegessäule 

Where you can climb to the top of the monument and see the panoramic view of the city, the cost of entry is small. There are alot of stairs to rich at the top ! 




East Side Gallery

The East Side Gallery is an open-air gallery in Berlin. It consists of a series of murals painted directly on a 1316 m long remnant of the Berlin Wall, located near the centre of Berlin, on Mühlenstraße in Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg

Berlin Cathedral

  
Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe

The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, also known as the Holocaust Memorial, is a memorial in Berlin to the Jewish victims of the Holocaust, designed by architect Peter Eisenman and engineer Buro Happold



 Gedenkstätte Berliner Mauer

The Gedenkstätte Berliner Mauer commemorates the division of Berlin by the Berlin Wall and the deaths that occurred there. The monument was created in 1998 by the Federal Republic of Germany and the Federal State of Berlin


 Potsdamer Platz

Potsdamer Platz is an important public square and traffic intersection in the centre of Berlin, Germany, lying about 1 km south of the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag, and close to the southeast corner of the Tiergarten park .



Reichstag building

The Reichstag is a historic edifice in Berlin, Germany, constructed to house the Imperial Diet of the German Empire. It was opened in 1894 and housed the Diet until 1933, when it was severely damaged after being set on fire Situated just north of the Brandenburg Gate, this building houses the German Parliament and was the seat of the Weimar Republic government until it was seized by the Nazis in 1933


Special TipBook your visit slot ahead of visit online. It’s free, we turned up to go in but had to go to the office and book a slot for the next day, you can book ahead. Really enjoyed this visit and walk up the dome. Make sure you take the audio tour, it’s free and in many languages

Food in Berlin

In Berlin you find almost everything from food. The truth is that the German capital is not famous for good food. However, it is worth trying a Currywurst  we chose to taste from  Curry 36 but there are alot of places around the city where you can taste it. On the first day we were very hungry and we went to Burgermeister Schlesisches Tor at Kreuzberg to enjoy a famous street Burger .Υou will need to do some patience by the time of the order Staff are very polite and fast .To enjoy the local cuisine of Berlin was headed to Hansaviertel where we find a Tiergartenquelle Restaurant .Τhe meals were pretty and delicious made from the local recipes of the city.Ιt would be good to reserve a table  before you go.

  NightLife in Berlin 

Νightlife is one of the most important attraction of the city. For many it is considered the capital of the Techno Music. The nightlife there is called Kreuzberg. In this Νeighborhood of Berlin guests will find many alternative Βars and Pubs and not only. Nightlife continues until the early hours in the morning where lots of parties are taking place with Famous Dj's.You'll find plenty of clubs around. the most popular are  Berghain , Tresor Club , Matrix   many of them remain open 24 h  at the weekend .If you are a friend of the nightlife and Clubbing
you will have to visit the capital of Germany in the future for an unforgettable experience.

Οι καλύτερες Τιμές για Δωμάτια !! Booking.com Ταξιδεύοντας  με πορισμό την Ελαφόνησο για camping στην ξακουστή παραλία του Σίμου . Τρία χρόνια προσπαθώ να επισκεφτώ το νησί και όλο κάτι στραβώνει και τελικά δεν τα καταφέρνω . Δυστυχώς και αυτή την φορά κάτι προέκυψε...Μία περίπου ώρα ο πριν φτάσω στο λιμάνι της Πούντας για να πάρω το ferry boat κάναμε  μια στάση στο χωριό Άσωπος για ενα καφεδάκι . Εκείνη την στιγμή που περιμένουμε τους καφέδες έρχεται ειδοποίηση στο κινητό μου "φωτιά στην Ελαφόνησο"!! Μετά από λίγα λεπτά άλλη ειδοποίηση "εκκενώνεται το camping " στο μεταξύ έχουν περάσει είδη δύο πυροσβεστικά οχήματα .Όπως καταλαβαίνεται έπρεπε να αλλάξουμε γρήγορα πλάνο . Μετά από ένα μικρό meeting καταλήξαμε στα "άγνωστα" μέχρι τότε Κύθηρα .Με μια γρήγορη αναζήτηση τα Κύθηρα είχαν πάρα πολλά να δούμε και το βασικότερο έχουν camping . Κατευθείαν μπαίνουμε στην μηχανή και φεύγουμε για Νεάπολη από όπου αναχωρεί το πλοίο για το νησί .

ΤΑΞΙΔΙ ΣΤΗΝ ΙΟΡΔΑΝΙΑ ~ ΤΙ ΠΡΕΠΕΙ ΝΑ ΓΝΩΡΙΖΕΙΣ ΠΡΙΝ ΠΑΣ

Λίγα λόγια για την Χώρα 
Το Χασεμιτικό Βασίλειο της Ιορδανίας ή απλά Ιορδανία  είναι μια χώρα  της Μέσης Ανατολής. Συνορεύει με τη Συρία στα Βόρεια με το Ιράκ στα Βόρεια ανατολικά με την Σαουδική Αραβία στα ανατολικά και νότια  και τέλος με το Ισραήλ στα δυτικά . Ο συνολικός  πληθυσμός της Χώρας φτάνει τα  περίπου 10 εκατομμύρια και είναι εξολοκλήρου άραβες . Οι περισσότεροι Ιορδανοί είναι Σουνίτες μουσουλμάνοι ενώ υπάρχουν αρκετοί Σίτες και Αχμάντι. Ο Βασιλιάς του Κράτους είναι ο ανώτερος υπάλληλος του Κράτους . O πρωθυπουργός επιβλέπει το έργο της κυβέρνησης και κυβερνάει σε συνεργασία με το βασιλιά . Πρέπει να γνωρίζεις ότι οι άνθρωποι αγαπούν και σέβονται  πάρα πολύ τον βασιλιά και την οικογένεια του , παντού θα δείς φωτογραφίες τους  .  Αν θέλετε να ρωτήσετε κάτι να το κάνετε  με απόλυτο σεβασμό . Η κύρια πηγή εσόδων είναι ο τουρισμός δυστυχώς από το 2011 μετά το πόλεμο στη Συρία υπάρχει ραγδαία πτώση . Η Ιορδανία επίσης είναι ένας από τους σημαντικότερους γαστρονομικούς προορισμ…

TOP 5 BEACHES IN ATHENS

Kape Sounio


I think it is the best beach of Athena. while you are there, you will think you are making a holiday on a small island of the Cyclades. If you have visited the Poseidon Temple in Sounio then make a stop for a little swim. There is a nice bar where you can enjoy a cool beer overlooking the Aegean .The beach is not organized, so you will need an umbrella






 Sesi Beach


It is located outside the village of Sesi, 22 km from the Marathon Tomb and just 45 minutes from Athens , beach with fine pebbles and sand, crystal clear waters and salt lakes , ideal for families. There is also a small tavern where you can eat something if you are hungry . I suggest you get to the beach early in the morning because later there will not be enough parking space for your car. The road is good , only 200 meters from the coast the road becomes dirt if you do not have a jeep it would be better to leave the car back and walking to the beach.





Τsonima Beach


At a distance of 20 kilometers from the center…
