Let yourselves draw into vibrant Berlin, into its districts as Kreuzberg, Neukölln or Prenzlauer Berg. Many tourists like to wander around the Museum Island, Brandenburg gate, or Fernsehturm TV tower in Berlin-Mitte (downtown). As in case of the Eiffel Tower the Fernsehturm can be seen from all corners of the city.
Intercultural gardens, nude beach, sheep, birds’ singing, rusty Ferris wheel making squeaking sounds in the wind, grass on the runway of former airport – these are some of many green places in Berlin. Easy-going atmosphere is typical in Berlin. Too bad that many try to do only sightseeing without stepping in Berlin’s green.
Fichtelberg is 25 kilometers by air from Karlovy Vary. It is the highest mountain in the Ore Mountains but on theirs German side. It is a nice climb where you pass 1000 meters above sea level of altitude and you can see two countries from there.
No one was born all-knowing. One has to try ferrates before knows their secrets. Where to find them? Near Czech-German borderline. There are ferrates of three difficulties and you can train there all day long without being disturbed by crowds of other ferrate fans.
Sun beams peak from behind fluffy clouds to dry puddles on a forest path. Water flowing down the stream flows over bumpy bed. Dropplets covered moss covered trunks with drew. The air smells of needles and resin.
Last week we got some taste of the Greek mythology when we tried Cassandra’s Curse ride. It absolutely messes with your sense of direction. However, there are many other great and amusing rides at Europa-Park.
Last week we managed to describe you one of the best European amusement parks. It was, however, a short description, therefore we continue in our journey today. We experience rides which will make you sick on your stomach. But these are fun.
Today we take a look inside another interesting theme park. We leave the United States to move over the ocean to the Old Continent.
You either love the German capital or you hate it. There is nothing in the middle. Berlin is sort of different than the rest of Germany. People from all around the world live there. Mix of cultures make Berlin unique – the city is vibrant with life, art, great cuisine and interesting people. The second largest city of Europe is certainly worth a visit.
We set off early in the morning with a long way ahead of us. We are looking forward to a lake cruise. In 1873 the first steam boat Emperor Franz Joseph I had set sails on the lake and cruises have been made there ever since. The steam boat was a technical marvel the then. It is 33 meters long and also was used as a propriety in couple of movies because it allegedly looks romantic. You can also take a ride by this boat as it is still part of the fleet.
