During our time in Berlin, we spent time looking at different architecture in the city and the history of it. We traveled to Quedlinburg to explore the town and we visited Potsdam to see the palaces and works of Frederick the Great. We also walked in Nikolaiviertel and saw the oldest building in Berlin.
With no knowledge of the German language, we managed to find our way, learn new things, and experience the history not just in Berlin, but in the surrounding areas.
