I’m passionate about London and its history and its architecture, however another country I am passionate about it Germany. Also exceptionally rich in history culture and Berlin is a beautiful representation of this, with equally amazing architecture.
This weekend sees the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, I can’t believe its been 25 years, I remember watching it on TV and although I didn’t understand then what is was all about, I do now, and more fully understand the consequences, and implications it has had for Germany.
Last week I visited a gorgeous exhibition at the British Museum Germany Memories of a Nation. It covered 600 years of German history and displayed some incredible artifacts including a bible translated and inscribed by Martin Luther, Napolean’s hat from the battle of waterloo and some incredible German art.
It took you through the countries complex history right up until 25 years ago when the wall fell and Germany was reunited 25 years ago
Its an incredible interesting exhibition and will run at the British Museum until the end of January.
If you love Germany as much as I do, then you will love the Christmas season too, don’t forget that the German Christmas markets will open at the end of the month and I can highly recommend both the Southbank market and of course the wonderful Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park, as well as the stalls, they have some amazing German beer halls, it makes for a great night/day out, and I for one will be making the most of these fun events over the winter season.
