Berlin, Germany

(Friday 21 January 2011) by Jill's travels
Hey, we are in Regenbogen Camp, Tecklenburg which is just 25 miles East of the Dutch border. Since arriving in Germany, there has been no more snow fall, ice or low temperatures, it’s almost spring-like, ha! We got to Berlin and stayed in a place called Spandau City Camp Berlin which is situated just 5 miles from West of the City. The strip of land which we pitched up on, was an island in between two frozen canals. The view from the van made up for the facilities on offer! The main road just outside the Campsite into the City, has parking spaces and metro stations situated all along either side of the road. We drove a little way along, parked up and got the metro into the City, cost 8 euros for two return tickets.

The City is quite cosmopolitan in parts, with some stunning architectural churches, theatres and museums, as you can imagine. The City has huge posters all along one of the streets near Check-point Charlie, when read, considerably improved our understanding of the historical situation. The Holocaust Museum was also worth a visit.

We stayed just three days in Berlin and moved onto Hannover for a couple of days. Hannover is one of those Cities that I would recommend as a City break, we will go back, if we can. It is very pretty and modern with shops that are worth visiting, alone! There are lots of artwork scattered around the City and you will see from one of the photos, a local artist from Germany has a couple of modern pieces. We have seen his art work all around Germany. A visit to one of the Nordsee restaurants is a definite. They cook a variety of fresh fish and seafood cocktails with dressings with salad or chips for 8 euros.

We stay here in Tecklenburg for 3 or 4 days, this site has got to be one of the top 10 sites and regions! Facilities come with a five star wellness centre included in the price! This is worth a flight for a weekend treat as they do all inclusive packages.

We move onto Amsterdam, this will be our last site in Europe, it s a reminder that our trip is coming to an end. From here we will catch the ferry over to Newcastle and explore Scotland throughout February, returning to Dorset in April. Best wishes xxx
