Holiday Inspiration – Berlin, Germany

By Emma @glasgowfoodie

Berlin break ideas

Now Mrs Foodie loves Berlin a little too much.  If only she had stuck in at school and passed that Higher German we would probably be there full time.  However, we make do with our yearly pilgrimage to all things Berlin and Germany.



Is everywhere, from burgers to kebabs to currywurst.  You certainly will never starve.

OSTEL Hostel Berlin 

Unsurprisingly located in East Berlin, Ostel is what my ideal holiday home would look like.  Strange.  I do like a quirky place to stay, and being a 70’s kid love the kitsch decor.

Huttenpalast is an old factory that has now been converted to accommodation with caravans inside. Budget accommodation within a great area of Berlin.

The Palace of Tears, the old crossing point from East/West Berlin.



Cost to get in, but a great big building where you can get a glimpse into the workings of the Stasi.

Of course you can’t fail to notice the Germans do like their beer, as do we.  Each time we visit we take our trusty Berlin Beer Book and attempt to mark off some more.
