Last summer: War and ice cream (or beer)

If you're in the Checkpoint Charlie area you might spot the ice cream parlour kalter Krieg – haha, get it? Makes you wonder whether we'll be able to come up with such a catchy name for whatever the hell is going on in the world right now, and then maybe in thirty years we can name a gourmet pickle store after it or something.

Given the amount of free history you have access to in Berlin, we just checked out a few things outside of the Checkpoint Charlie Museum and then headed over to the Topography of Terror Documentation Centre. Always good to take some time out of your gorgeous summer day to spare a thought for those who suffered at the hands of crazy people. After which it is advised to go buy some beers go and hang out with your friends in the park and the city.

Because – thank goodness – life in Berlin is a fair bit more relaxed compared to back then.
