A Day Trip to Berlin
What will you do if you could only visit Berlin in a day? We were here for three days but we only had free time for a day to visit Berlin as a proper tourist. Therefore, we literally went all the places like we were a group of flash mob... but still, we believed we had visited most of the must-gos even in just a day. Would you like to try, too?

East Side Gallery - Creative Graffiti Art on the Berlin Wall
No one would expect something like that from its name - East Side Gallery because it isn't really a gallery but more like an open air exhibition on the street. This gallery showcases lots of paintings/ graffitis from different artists around the world. All of the artwork were painted directly on the Berlin Wall which made a memorial more interesting and lively. Keep walking along the river and you shall see the end of the wall!
Brandenburg Gate - The Landmark of Germany
It's obvious that what makes the Brandenburg Gate a must-go. This gate is historical and has become a signature of Berlin and the landmark of Germany. It's just like an Eiffel Tower in Paris. You wouldn't leave this city without taking a picture of it. Do you also have such feeling?
Reichstag Building - A Glass Dome Observatory Tower in a Government Office
Reichstag Building is actually a government office but it's also a perfect observatory tower with a glass dome for tourists to sightsee Berlin as a whole from top. It's free for everyone but you'll have to make a booking on their official website in advance. The schedule is quite full so you should make your booking at least two weeks before your visiting day or you might miss the chance!
Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe - A Museum with a Dark History
Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe is definitely a must-go in Berlin. There's also a museum underneath the memorial and we literally spent almost two hours over there. Not just those grey concrete blocks but also the museum send a strong depressing message out. We took the pictures after the rain stopped. All those blocks somehow looked like bleeding or crying. They were sad and painful...
Gendarmenmarkt - A Square with Gorgeous Architectures
We accidentally found Gendarmenmarkt while we were wandering around the city. This square is full of beautiful architectures. You should probably drop by for a few minutes for some nice pictures if you are around.
