Conrad and I made our way to Berlin on Saturday (June 23) from Amsterdam (photos). The trip from our hotel to the airport was very straightforward: walk to the ferry, take the free ferry to Central Station, and then take the airport train from Central Station to the airport.
Here are two sets of pictures from Berlin:
One of the super fun parts of Sunday afternoon was hanging out with Conrad's girlfriend Skye's family (aunt, uncle, nephews, and niece) who happened to be in Berlin at the same time:
At the end of the day on Sunday, we headed back to the Berlin Airport for a late evening flight to Frankfurt. The trip to Frankfurt from Berlin had no major issues.
Some thoughts about this part of the the trip:
- We managed to take the bus from the airport to a stop near our hotel (short 10 minute walk), and hotel was very close to a Berlin City Train Station.
- Our flight from Amsterdam to Berlin was on KLM. They had a great little snack step-up (photo) that was pretty well engineered and tasty.
- Conrad really wanted to buy Birkenstocks in Germany. We found some but the selection was not great. And they cost more plus the taxes made them even more expensive then buying them in the U.S. So we skipped those purchases.
