We had a lovely 3 nights in Berlin over the weekend.  We stayed in the Adina Apartment Hotel Hackescher Markt (see Hotels.com or TripAdvisor). The hotel and room were fabulous and in a great location.

On our first full day we had breakfast at the Frida Kahlo Mexican restaurant, which has some less than favourable reviews on the web but was fine for breakfast omelettes!  The former headquarters of the East German State Security is now the Stasi Museum and is well worth a visit. In the evening we ate German at the Weihenstephaner  restaurant which was pretty good apart from one disappointing pasta dish (why choose pasta in Berlin?!). On the second day we had a snack-bar breakfast and then walked through the snow in the Tiergarten park and onto the Jewish Museum. This is a fascinating museum of Jewish history and culture.  The beautiful lady in the image below is 21 year old Albertine Heine, on her wedding day. In the evening we ate at the Zur Haxe Bavarian restaurant. It really is worth eating here; great food, charming decor and the happiest waitresses you’re ever likely to meet!
