We arrived in Berlin on a very special date for the city: the anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall as well as the 75th anniversary of the so-called Night of Broken Glass (or Progromnacht), when the Nazi wave of violence against Jews began. We met our German friend Julie (whom we met months before already back in Natal, Brazil through Couchsurfing) in Berlin. Therefore, we were really lucky as those days were the last ones of our World Tour and we were too tired to plan any itinerary. Julie told us, three days would be enough to get to know just about 5 % of everything Berlin has to offer. So, during those days we were in town, she took us to see the most important things which I wrote down in this post and added some other sights that we couldn’t visit due to the lack of time, but should be visited in the city.
