Although a bit sleepy from the train, I was really excited and so blown away by the Berlin Hbf station that I had to document the occasion.
After getting my bed (which was 20 Euro for a bed in a room of 4 beds), my locker, and a bit organized I was out on the town for a look around.
For dinner I went to a great little Russian place called Gorki Park that I found in my guidebook, boasting great eats for cheap. I got onion, mushroom, and spinach perogies with a yogurt scauce and a Russian beer which was pretty tasty.
Then I was off for a drink at the Oscar Wilde Pub a self proclaimed hub of ex-pats and English speakers, which on a Sunday night was pretty empty, however I was able to chat a bit with the bartender and he said on Saturdays there’s a lot of Americans that now live in Berlin.
After my first half of a day in Berlin I was feeling pretty confident and didn’t consult my map before heading back to the hostel so I ended up taking a long slightly round about way back. It was actually quite a lovely stroll and I found these lit up trees.
