Day 2 in Berlin! We made our way to Berlin’s oldest restaurant, Zur Letzen Instanz, in business since 1621 it has welcomes many famous guests including Napoleon and Goethe. I decided I had to try a Berlin favourite, Eisbein, pork knuckle with yellow mashed peas and bacon. I knew it would be a big meal when I ordered it but the pork knuckle was the size of my head! After such a huge lunch we decided to walk it off by wandering along the East Side Gallery – the gallery of the artwork on the remains of the Berlin Wall.
We ended the day at Clärchen’s Ballhaus, an old ballroom turned restaurant-slash-disco! We drank wine in the afternoon in the lovely outdoor section with fairylights and vines covering the building, followed by dinner. I ordered something I loved when I was in Germany last; kaesespaetzle! It’s almost like the german version of mac & cheese and made with egg noodles. Amazing! As the sun went down we made our way inside to hit the dance floor with travellers and locals alike.
