Fun day out at the Science Center Berlin, for an exhibit about human mobility.
The Reichstag in Berlin, the current home of the Bundestag (German parliament). The building was built in 1894. Many people blame the rise of Nazi socialism to a suspicious fire in this building in 1933. It was badly damaged during World War 2 and was not properly rebuilt until after the reunification of Germany.
I organised a hike for the Berlin Hikers meetup group. I figured I’m lazy, so I chose a short route. I wanted to sleep in, so I made sure the route was close to town. I wanted to blob out and drink beer and eat food afterwards, so I chose a place with a nice cafe at the end of the route. Apparently lots of others liked this approach, as a ton of people came along 🙂
A big bunch of us headed for a midnight bike ride to Müggelturm, a strange communist era viewing tower on the south eastern edge of Berlin. Apparently back in the old days, the hip thing to do was hanging out in a strange tower in the middle of nowhere, admiring the surrounding forest. We finished off our trip with a picnic under the stars by Müggelsee, the largest lake near Berlin.
