Berlin: vibrant and always changing

Berlin is a city that has to been seen. Berlin has been at the centre of some pretty key historical moments and as a result has transformed and changed throughout time and today is still changing and evolving.

Accommodation: Again I stayed in a hotel due to lack of available hostels and ended up staying at the Ibis Budget which was cheap and wheelchair accessible and also allowed dogs!

Apparently the Menninger hotel/ hostel is more accessible but they didn’t have any rooms. BEWARE if you want to go to Munich anywhere near Octoberfest book well if advance.

Transport: Munich is pretty compact so to get around the city  centre you don’t need public transport. I did catch a bus from the train station to the hostel which had a ramp.  I also caught a train out to Dachau which was also accessible.
