Berlin - Scenes From the Streets of Berlin

My last day in Berlin was to be devoted to the Gemaldegalerie, the museum holding one of the  largest European paintings collections in the world.  It turned out to be only a fifteen minute walk from our hotel which gave me the opportunity to go walking and exploring the streets of Berlin, one of my favorite activities in an unknown city.

Etap Hotel Postdamer Platz


My ramblings took me to Martin-Gropius Bau, a building I had noticed as we had passed by in the taxi twice the day before.


The inside of this exhibition hall was just as impressive as the outside.  There was a very pleasant cafe and an incredible book store.

After Martin-Gropius Bau, I just walked and took pictures till I reached the Gemaldegalerie.

Finally I reached the Gemaldegalerie and lost myself in the art for many hours.
