AFAR senior editor Andrew Richdale flew to Germany last week and shared some of his favorite moments in the country via Instagram, from the public photo booths scattered around Berlin to the white-and-blue walls of Bavaria. It’s safe to say that we are officially ready to pack up our bags and head to Germany.
Take a scroll through the highlights with @therichdale, and be sure to follow @afarmedia for a daily dose of travel inspiration.
“I love this massive park located in Neukölln, what is debatably the coolest neighborhood in one of the coolest cities in the world, Berlin. It’s as big as an airport terminal because it used to be one. Eight years ago, the airport, which had been operational since before WWII, shut down and the city turned it into a recreational space.”
“Spinnerei used to be mainland Europe’s largest cotton mill. Now it’s an art compound with 14 galleries, a half dozen ceramic studios, and an outdoor theater. The exhibits, in classic German style, swing wry and dark.”
“The Marie-Elisabeth-Lüders-Haus is a part of Berlin’s new parlimentary complex, which houses one of the largest scientific libraries in the world. In the basement is a memorial where original pieces of the Berlin Wall are preserved.”
