Since last year a few of us were able to visit Interlaken in Switzerland we extended an invitation to our new Swiss connection to visit us in Berlin. This July we had the opportunity to welcome five great guys from Switzerland. We prepared some activities and sight seeing tours in Berlin to combine typical tourist attractions and also having spent time together by showing them our neighborhood. For sure we visited the Brandenburger Gate, Potsdamer Platz, the East Side Gallery and much more. But all of us really enjoyed it to have a picnic or relaxing afternoon and talk with each other about everything that comes on our minds. We didn’t really know each other before, nevertheless it was a great atmosphere right from the beginning. That’s why they are not the only one who enjoyed the journey, we are the ones that are proud to get to know those kind, open-hearted and cheerful people and love to call them our Swiss friends.
We asked them to give us a short feedback. There we have two ‘short’ ones 🙂
Our four Day trip to Berlin started at Interlaken West in the early morning hours. We drove to Basel and than flew to Berlin. Where our lovely tour guides were waiting for us. They welcoming was very warm and we got on well with them really fast.
A highlight for me was the picknick the park on the first night and the East Side Gallery was very Impressing for me. Not to forget “Schrippen” are awesome.
The trip was perfectly organised and saying goodbye to my new german friends was really hard for me. I hope to see them again ( maybe in Switzerland 😉👍)
Thanks for all your work and patient with the swiss-cheeses 🙈 we had a unbelievable good time with you.
Day #1: Although it was a hard day because of the long journey soon I felt comfortable due to the pleasant welcome by our hosts (John, Antonia and Ulrike). Highlight no. 1 was the cosy and tasty picnic at the Lustgarten.
Day #2: The personal tour at the German Bundestag (thanks to personal connections by Antonia) was definitely highlight no. 2 for me.
It was exciting, humorous and informative at once. I enjoyed it!
Day #3: It was great to have some free time to spent on personal interests. The Jewish museum – very impressive and touching (highlight no. 3)
Day #4: culinary highlight: strudel with vanilla sauce, huge ice cream bowl (awesome :-)!) and a packed lunch with “Knupserflocken”.
To sum up: It was a really great journey to Berlin including a warm host (city tours, information about the city and its history, guidance with the public transport, best culinary sustenance etc.) and well-rounded varied program. The were no wishes left. Rating: 10 of 10 points 😉
