A quick Stop in Weimar for a really good applel strudel and excellent vanilla ice cream. I couldn’t tell you the bakery’s name because it was so cold I just ran in without seeing the name, and then forgot to check when we left. I know that is terrible.
You will have to move all that whipped cream on the right side but there is an excellent vanilla ice cream there somewhere..
Here are some pictures of mostly east Berlin. Sorry. I did not get any photographs of the new years party mainly because it was a fiasco. DH and I got separated, too many people, and almost being crushed, it was not to fun, but here are some lovely photographs.
Early morning in East Berlin.
A very crowded Check Point Charlie. We didn't go into the museum because it was crowded. We really wanted to go to KA De We but we got there right when they closed.
Don’t feel too bad that we did not go to KA DE We but we did have a nice cappuccino and snacks at Cafe Percil.
I think this was the petit Mona Lisa. I can't remember. The croissant was really delicious, flakey and buttery and DH gave the snack a big thumbs up, and I do have to agree!
We were given honey, nutella, and butter, a croissant, and very ripe lovely fruit. It must have looked like DH and I had nothing to eat as we decimated the plate, with moans of joy. Sometimes I think it is just the simple things that make life pleasurable.
The thing about this statues is I was so busy trying to mimic the statue; that I did not notice it was anatomically correct.
Initially I had stuck my head between the legs to say hi to DH and he burst out laughing, and if you can guess why then good for you, and if you can’t well I am not going to post the picture! ;P
So, after our ordeal with new years, we packed up and headed for Potsdam. We were at Cecliahof where the Potsdam Conference was held. Sorry no pictures allowed in the castle. This is the first modern castle in Germany!
This is the new Castle in Potsdam, and where Potsdam University is now located. It is a worth while tour to take, the rooms are gorgeous, and the history interesting. Sorry no photographs allowed in the castle.
Sorry for the lack of food photgraphs, but I kept forgetting my camera. the first night we great meal at german restaurant near the East Berlin TV tower. I had KÃ¶nig Klopse, meat ball in sauce with pickled beets on the side. Dh had Gulasch over spaetzle. Both meals were outstanding, but the thing that stood out was the pickled beets. We were fighting over my pickled beets. They were tender and crunchy and sweet and sour perfect to go along with our meals. Unfortunately my notes are blurry on the name of the restaurants, but it is near the TV tower.
On New Years eve we had reservations at a restaurant under the train station. DH and I had Pork Medallions wrapped in strudel I believe with fried potato rounds and salad. Man that was outstanding. Very rich but very delicious. The apple strudel couldn’t compare to the bakery in Weimar but it was good with creme anglais.
Sorry It took me so long to get this post up, but DH has been working on the computer for school, and this one computer has all the photographs loaded up on them. I hope you have been having and awesome time, and I will try my hardest to get to the computer and post soon.
