Day 1 & 2: Reaching the German Capital, Berlin
In Berlin you cannot possibly go wrong. The touristic attractions are spread around the whole city, almost its every corner remembering of the glorious past and especially of the unification that took place on the 3rd of October, 1990 once with the fall of the Berlin Wall. Make sure not to miss the Berliner Dom, the Friedrichstadt Palast, Sans Souci Palaca, Brandenburg Gate, Checkpoint Charlie, East Side Gallery, Fernsehturm (TV Tower), Holocaust Memorial, Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church. The best way to visit all these attractions would be either to rent a bike – which you can do in plenty of places all around the city, or to go with a tourist bus, which is also quite a good way, but if you go by bike, you can enjoy the beautiful views much more.
Day 3: The Baroque City, Potsdam
Only a few kilometers away from Berlin, the Potsdam city is a landscape you should not miss. To reach this amazing town with unique baroque influences, you can take the S-Bahn (a suburban railway system metro) from Berlin to Potsdam. The Russian Colony Alexandrovka is one of the biggest attractions of this wonderful place also considered as a part of the World Heritage of Germany.
In case you want to feel the local spirit, visit a Kneipe, a different type of a pub, and order a local beer and some traditional food. You will be very impressed with Lutter und Wegner 1811 chain restaurants.
