It’s the end of July 2020: After many, many years it is finally going to happen. The opening of the new Berlin Brandenburg Airport BER in Germany’s capital city in October 2020. I was part of a test run before the opening.
Have you ever been on a typical Berlin boat tour?
Berlin is a city of contrasts. Modern buildings meet tranquil parks and waterways. Therefore, the city absolutely lends itself to be discovered by boat.
The Spandau Lock is in Berlin, in the district Spandau. It helps ships to cross from the Lower Havel (Untere Havel) into the Upper Havel (Obere Havel) despite their different water levels.
The Glienicke Bridge is one of the less spectacular bridges that connect Berlin and Potsdam. It stretches across the river Havel and wouldn’t be worth a specific mention if it wasn’t the place of the spy swaps during the Cold War.
It is Sunday at around lunchtime – time to go for a walk – time to go to the visitor’s deck of Tegel Airport. At Tegel Airport guests can observe aeroplanes for hours from the visitor’s deck.
The Aquarium Berlin was established in 1913. It is amongst the aquariums with the most species with its many freshwater and saltwater creatures, the amphibians, reptiles and insects. A visit is well worthwhile not just for kids!
