Today was museum day. Sean dropped us off at the Zehlendorf S-Bahn station.
Nice station. We grabbed some coffee and a pastry at a cafe on the platform while we waited a few minutes for the train. We took the S-Bahn to the heart of Berlin to the huge S+U Hauptbahnhof station. From there, we walked just under a mile to our destination. here’s a few pictures I took on our walk to the museum.
History of Germany Museum
This place is HUGE. If you want to learn the complete history of Germany, this is where you go. Plan on at least 6 hours there if you wish to read and view everything. We spent 5 hours and felt like we needed another hour or two – but it was 6 pm, closing time. Here’s some pictures I took at the museum.
We had lunch at the Museum Cafe. I had 6 sausages on potatoes served with a side of sauerkraut. Nancy had the German version of meatloaf served with a side of fried potatoes. Both pretty good. Note that German meatloaf is not what we’re used to in the U.S., made with ground meat. The German version is more like thick slices of loaf shaped bologna.
While walking the museum, I took a few seated rests. While resting my feet, I fired up the Munzee app. Wow – lots of virtuals around here. I capped 44 of them – including a Mystery Virtual worth 50 points.
Currywurst – it’s what’s for dinner!
Yup – you can’t visit Germany without eating your meat, and Currywurst is everywhere. So tonight was the night. We stopped at a restaurant on our walk back to the train station. I’d say the Currywurst was good. But my world was not rocked. Reminded me of the flavor and consistency of bologna. Glad I tried it – may have it again while I’m here.
