Berlin Sketches


Recently came back from a short holiday trip to Berlin with some friends, a nice break from crazy London, and just wanted to show bits and bobs of museum sketches.Image
Being in a holiday we try to make the most out of the trip and see as many attractions as possible, such as going to the Museum Island which is known for housing 5 significant historical museums (Neues Museum, Altes Museum, Alte Nationalgalerie, Pergamonmuseum and Bode Museum) all part of the UNESCO World Heritage, walking along the Berlin Wall, visiting the Topographie des Terrors (Topography of Terror), and going to the Kupferstichkabinett (Museums of Prints and Drawing) and Gemaldegalerie in the Kulturforum. And eating currywurst… ketchup and curry are the best combo ever!

Also enjoyed seeing some similarities and differences between Berlin and London. E.g. Train stations: Alexanderplatz = Alexandra Palace/ Spittelmarkt = Spitelfields Market, more spaces to move around (the pedestrians are so wide that cyclists can cycle on it without bumping into people!) and actually seeing rabbits and foxes in broad daylight (in the park, not on the street).

Berlin is quite an inspiring place to be in and just relax in general, not very difficult to go around places as long as you buy the Berlin welcome pack and Museum Card (discounts on travel, food, and museums- some are free!), I definitely recommend anyone to go 🙂

Ever since coming back I’ve been having sparks of inspirations, let’s see if I can work off these on to paper!
