Our trip to KÖln in 2016 was so much fun. We went there for my birthday, in May. We stayed at the Leonardo Royal Hotel am Stadtwalt and it was the best. It was so clean, they were very friendly and the view from the room was amazing. The hotel is located near a park with a big pond and fountains. It was so relaxing. There even was a zoo in the middle of the park! It’s very child-friendly too, and the breakfast-buffet was to die for.
We went shopping in the city and I recommend the Hard Rock Cafe once again! I guess it’s just a success-formula. The city is a must-do for everyone who likes to shop. I had trouble to fit everything in my suitcase afterwards!
In december 2016 we went to Berlin. Sad enough, we were there when the terrorist attacks happened. One minute we were walking slowly at the Christmas market and a few seconds later it was chaos everywhere. We were sooo Lucky to be safe. I can tell you it brought a sinister shadow on the trip. Our thoughts are with those who are a victim or who lost a loved one. Our hotel was located nearby the attack so the first night was really frightening.
Afterwards, we decided we couldn’t stay in our room for the nex four days, so we ended up visiting the entire city. Alexanderplatz is awesome!! U can get ANYWHERE by metro and it’s so fast and easy. I recommend to buy a 72-hr ticket, it’s much cheaper and easy and u get a discount at several museums!
So Germany is great to visit! My fiancé has been to Bonn before and he says it was also really good.
If u go to Germany make sure u make a stop in Belgium; we have the best waffles and French fries!
