Second stop on my ‘Europe Summer Trip’…Berlin! So far, I’m loving the city. I arrived yesterday (late morning) and after dropping my bags off at my hotel, I headed out to find something to eat. I stopped by this quaint looking German bistro named ‘Zur Rose’ and decided to eat there. The décor was vintage and cosy. I ordered the ‘Spätzle’. Which I later learned was a pasta variation (with the texture being more like a dumpling) served with lots of cheese and a side salad! I would definitely recommend this restaurant for any of you who are planning a trip to Berlin soon!

Some of the sights I saw that I would recommend as ‘must-sees’ would be the Reichstag Building which was built in the 1800s, the Brandenburg Gate – a stunning sight and an 18th century monument, the ‘Berliner Dom’ which is located on Museum Island in the Mitte district and then the ‘Berliner Fernsehturm’ (Berlin TV Tower) – 368 metres tall, it’s the cities most visible landmark and gives you 360° views.
