Memorial Book

We were lucky enough to spend the last 4 days exploring the vast city of Berlin. Naturally we have many many photos to share and it is likely to take some time to get through them all. We set off on day one on foot, misinterpreting slightly the scale of our map and the overwhelming size of the city. Berlin is fantastically huge and we quickly had to get quite organised to ensure we saw all the things we had gone in search of.

Our first visit of note was the impressive architecture of Daniel Liebeskind’s amazing Jewish Museum. I don’t think I had ever been to a building before that was deliberately designed to intimidate, unsettle and confuse; the tilted foundations and leaning walls of the museum left you unbalanced and disorientated. We found ourselves clinging to handrails as we climbed the stairs, because nowhere offered a straight line against which to balance yourself. It was a very interesting experience and set the tone of our trip really; a contrasting balance between shocking, disturbing history and utterly inspiring design.
