Yes, it is possible to visit Germany’s capital in one day…a half day to be exact. We took an early morning train from Hamburg to Berlin and hit the ground running.
Our first stop in Berlin was the Reichstag Building, the meeting place of the German Parliament. We snapped a few photos from the vast green space in front of this historic building before continuing on our high speed journey by foot.
Next up was the famous Brandenburg Gate. This 18th century monument once symbolized the division of Germany, and now signifies peace and unity. It truly is an iconic landmark.
Even though none of us are allowed to actually travel right now, we can still take mental vacations. So sit back, relax and join us on an action-packed two days in Hamburg and Berlin. With only one free weekend to spare before moving back to Michigan, we knew we had to pack Germany’s two largest cities into one journey. We’re becoming real pros at this whole one city (or country) per day thing!
When Ryan’s company said he might have to self-quarantine for two weeks when we returned to the U.S., I never thought it would actually happen…
Here we are three weeks into our self-quarantine living under Michigan’s new stay-at-home order.
We’ve only left the house a few times to take walks around the neighborhood and deliver birthday gifts to family members (while saying hello through the window).
These are unknown and difficult times for everyone, especially those working on the frontlines during this health crisis. We hope that everyone is staying as safe and healthy as possible adjusting to this crazy new world.
Days and times have started blending together and there’s no such thing as a normal schedule anymore.
