Berlin Free Walking Tour

Berlin Free Walking Tour

 

We took the Berlin Free Walking Tour on a really cold day in January – not the best idea. The weather was probably -3 and feels like -10. We were freezing the whole time and most of it was outdoors but we pushed through with it anyway since we can’t really control the weather and we don’t know when we’ll go back to this city. It was just like Yolo! Haha.

Sandeman’s is the company that does the The Berlin Free Walking Tour we availed. The company has several free tours a day. I don’t know if they have more in the summer than in winter but I would guess they would. Currently, the scheduled tours are everyday at 10AM, 10:30AM, 11AM, 11:30AM, 2PM and 4PM. The tour starts in East Berlin and the meeting place is at the Starbucks at the Brandenburg Gate. If you take the metro, it’s really close to one of the exits. The stop is Brandenburger Tor.

Banapple Marquee Mall

Banapple Marquee Mall

 

According to their website, Banapple is your friendly bakery cafe that serves freshly-baked pies, cheesecakes and desserts, as well as good food and coffee. They are very popular in Metro Manila as I have seen them around Makati so it was a good thing to have them closer here in the North. Banapple Marquee Mall opened at the end of May this year and it’s located near the mall entrance, next to North Park and Yellow Cab Pizza on the left side if you are entering the mall.
