Janne and I spent our Tuesday and Wednesday in Berlin! My excitement was beyond words! She had booked bus tickets for us so we could spend one night in Berlin and have two days of sightseeing. It is about a three hour drive to Berlin from Hamburg depending on traffic.The way there took a little longer because we left around nine in the morning when more cars are on the road, while the way home even went faster since we left in the evening. Our first day in Berlin we checked in to our hotel which was Azimut Hotel. The hotel is located close to a shopping street so the decision was made that the first day would be a shopping day and the second one would be our sightseeing day. The funny thing though, after a whole day of walking I had only found a sweatshirt and Janne had not found anything. I guess we aren't a fan of the fall collections cause we usually don't have a problem to find stuff we want to buy, haha!
Wednesday we woke up to the rain pooring in Berlin and we started to think that we had made a huge mistake choosing the first day to walk in stores. Luckily, after running around in the rain looking for our first destination, the rain stopped and we could walk along the East Side Gallery without an umbrella. We were able to catch a lot of the different sightseeing places during our day. Among this we saw what's left of the Berlin Wall, which is the East Side Gallery today, the Museum Island, The Berlin Cathedral, The Reichtag Parliament Building, Berlin Fernsehturm, Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, Brandenburger Tor and finally the Memorial for the Murdered Jews of Europe. It was a wonderful two days so a huge thank you to Janne for giving me this experience. I am so so grateful, I'm just speechless with gratitude and I will for sure remember this trip till the end of time. Thank you so much!
Brandenburger Tor which has become a symbol for Berlin.
Looked forward to seeing this long before we even started our trip.
So beautiful and simply a must if you visit Berlin.
East Side Gallery, what remains of the Berlin Wall.
The Wall have so many different paintings by so many different artists.
My parhaps favorite painting on the wall. The Berlin Wall should be a reminder that we need to spread love and peace. The Wall was torn down in 1989 with celebration after years of pain. Why would we want to go back in time and build new walls?
Make love not walls.
One of the most popular paintings of the wall.  
One of Janne's favorites!
Propbably the most famous painting from the Wall called "My God, Help Me Survive This Deadly Love".
Loved all the colors of this huge painting.
All pictures of me are taken by Janne and edited by me. Press here to visit her blog.
 
 
So many different paintings, so many different feelings.
 
 
One of the places we ate at was Peter Pane which is a burger restaurant inspired by the fairytale Peter Pan.
They have really nice interior that's supposed to remind you of Neverland, and on the restrooms they even play the fairytale in the speakers
Here you can get the menu in English and it looks like a storybook! I loved my avocado burger.
The gorgeous Berlin Cathedral.   
Berlin Fernsehturm
Memorial for the Murdered Jews of Europe.
Also known as The Holocaust Memorial.
Many feelings here and I feel like a moment of silence is in order.

Day 7! What an incredible day! I don't even know were to begin. Janne was able to get us in a free tour of the Hamburg city hall. Probably the most incredible building I've seen so far, both from the inside and outside. I was not able to understand much of the information from the guide since the tour was in German, but Janne helped with translating. The building and all the rooms were just breathtaking. After our tour, we bought the most delicious sandwich from a small food place that was right infront of the city hall ( alot of small food places are located outside of it). The sandwich was so good, still craving it. We saw so much during the day, like Hamburg's harbor, the Alster again, and finally the Elbphilharmonie Plaza. Our feet really hurt when we got home, but I was beyond happy! We really took advantage of the sunshine and saw a lot of the city. Scroll down for some of my favorite pictures from the day!
The beautiful fountain located on the backside of Hamburg's city hall.

Hamburg's incredible city hall!
Such a huge and beautiful building, no pictures could make it justice.
There was alot of cute and small little food places by the city hall.
 
 
The entrence of the city hall that's always open for the public to enter.
 
 
 
Tours like ours can be booked so you also can see the incredible rooms of the city hall.
Entering one of my favorite rooms from the tour.
No words for the beauty.
There was incredible wallpaper in all rooms, this one was made out of genuine leather. It is the original wallpaper as well!
Some of the silver that was not melted down when the Germans were afraid that Napoleon would come and try to steal the silver from the city hall.
 
Our tour got an exclusive when we got to see this golden book that never had been shown to the public before.
 
 
My absolute favorite room from the tour. You really have to stand in it to comprehand it's beauty.  
 
Lunchtime!
The best sandwich I've had! Crispy bread with melted mozzarella, tomatoes, pepper, arugula and soya. Yum!
Taking the boat instead of the subway to our destination!
The Elbphilharmonie Plaza were you can go in for free to get a little view over the water and the city.
We went up to see the view, alot of people because of the Blue Harbor week.
Piece of the Berlin Wall that you can see below the plaza.

Day 6 was a really fun day, maybe one of the best so far! Janne attended a wedding so her sisters asked if I wanted to come with in to town so they could show me a cupcake store close to the central station. It was raining alot in Hamburg for most of the day but luckily it ended in the afternoon. It was really special to me to get to spend the day with Janne's little sisters. I only have brothers myself so it was a lot of fun to spend the day with them. The Cupcake store was maybe my favorite from the day even though we did so much. The name of the Cupcake shop is Pink Ribbon Cupcakes and it's right by the central station which gives it a perfect location if you are visiting. They have so many kinds of cupcakes and they also sell small cheesecakes. All of them look so perfect and you can even get them to go. There's even little boxes if you're just grabbing one cupcake to go, but there's also bigger boxes that fits 6 of them. Really cute design on the to go boxes. I think it's a perfect place for a coffe with firends if you are like me and love sweet things. The store is little but very cute, I love the pink and the interior design. They also sell little cute things like cups with quotes. After spending some time eating cupcakes we headed in to the city to continue looking in stores. I bought a few things from New Yorker and Claire that I hope to put on the blog soon. A new store for me today was the store Lush that sell lots of Bath bombs, face masks, makeup and shampoos. We have the store in Sweden but I haven't been in one so far. Their concept is supposed to be very organic and I liked it alot. Good service and I loved that you could feel and smell all the products. Such a good day! A big thank you to the two sweetest girls in the world for a wonderful girl day! So happy I got to have little sisters for a day!
 
I Loved the interior design at the cupcake store.

Me and the girls had to walk in rain to get from place to place.
Janne's sisters introduced me to a store for beauty products called Lush.
I loved the different facemasks that you could see and purshace there.
Has anyone tried the chocolate mask?
So many different kinds of bath bombs!
 
 I would love to try this one!
