Thessaloniki Berlin Dresden

Thessaloniki Berlin Dresden

Thessaloniki Berlin day 1

With EasyJet flying directly from Thessaloniki to Berlin and we left 2 hours , we got to the airport Sconefeld. While travel for the first time with low cost company, I can not say that we had major problems. However, the total cost of tickets which we hold in January rose significantly since we bought the service speedy boarding consequential children which seemed particularly relevant in the return flight had a lot of people.
The airport in Berlin is not the best in the world, but as I saw and was told me, in the same area construct the new airport when it started its operation will be closed all other Berlin (the Templetonpf already closed and the same will happen to Tegel in about two years).
We received the car that we rent and we going to Dresden since the first time driving abroad. In my main equipment included in the GPS and made sure to buy before leaving for Greece and found the best assistant in my journey. The Dresden is about 180 kilometers from the airport and my first impression was that show respect for all vehicles to cyclists who have a high priority on the roads. Once we left the highway we found that although the German drivers are far more typical than the Greeks did not meet religious devotion and speed limits. The roads do not cause any problems and reconstructed in several ways. Also in many places are required to radar speed biggest obstacles the Germans knew the items were.
The route is very relaxing and passing the most part through dense forests.
In 2 hours we arrived in Dresden. The first impression was that this is a city of quiet, beautiful, picturesque and very clean. Passing the central bridge of the Elbe reached the historic city center and then to the hotel located in a huge pedestrian Pragger strasse which is the commercial center and just 15 minutes walk from the old town. The area is convenient for a stay and is just 5 minutes walk from the main train station.
Second day Dresden
Going down the Pragger Strasse you meet many famous shopping areas (C & A, Carl strand, etc.) and is in its final construction stage and a really huge shopping center occupied by 3 or four blocks. I say German press on the grounds that building. Squares of Germany have nothing in size to those of Greece. It would suggest someone to spend time in a trade and has done a lot in the city and begin:
Crossing over the street we reached the main square which is surrounded by new buildings with the architecture of Saxony, however, that prevailing in the previous year. The square is also the concert hall and the city (not the opera). Following the road to the river we arrive in front of the cathedral church that is the central reference point for tourists but also for the city. It is worth the visit and internal attention but only the hours allowed for tourists. Behind the cathedral there are horses and carriages for all forms of tourists.
Going to the Elbe and in the midst of a narrow street with cafes and restaurants to reach an old gate to the entrance of the river to the city. The wide wall above the gate is an ideal place for walking and offers breathtaking views to the opposite bank of the Elbe. Surely you will find there a band playing classical music and street musicians playing local instruments first saw it.
One thing I should do one certainly is a tour with the canal the river Elbe. We opted to do the tour with one of the oldest canal in the region which 9,11,13.00 and departs at 15:00 each day and the cost is 12 € per person. The boat arrives to the city Piplitc and throughout the journey and admire the infinite beauty of nature and beautiful old castles and villas which are fully aligned with the environment. Also very impressive are the old bridges which straddle the canal. The trip takes 1.30 hours.
In the evening the old city illuminates otti I needed a visit the gardens of Zinger (museum) and of course the Opera House with the balcony has wonderful views towards the river bridge and the Japanese Palace. Just ahead is a fantastic restaurant caféé (Tarachen) which has a balcony over the river where you to enjoy a drink in admittedly somewhat pinched price. This side of the city especially at night remind cinematic scene with blackened buildings (built again after the bombings of Americans in World War II). The night concluded our trip across the Elbe where we pass the magnificent old-style bridge that connects the two sides.

What we propose
• Visit museums and art gallery in city
• Cruise on the Elbe
• Visit the Castle
• View from the Town Hall and the Opera
• Visit evening in the square in front of the Opera
• Dinner at Restaurant "1900 Dresden gastronomy house" is decorated like an old tram station friendly staff and good prices on (every Thursday and Friday evening with a local orchestra music)
• Do try the local beer of Saxony served in all the outdoor shops.

Third day Dresden - Berlin
As I said in about two hours, amid torrential rain and with the help of GPS we reached the hotel Seifelt located in the center of western Berlin near the main shopping street Kudam. The area is very convenient for the movement of a 5 minutes from the central station and ten from the Europa Center. Our first impression was not the best one and returned from a picturesque city like Dresden. Of course the western part, especially the area we were not to offer something special to the tourists. But the day really the facts we denied. Let's go back but then our third day. The first visit we were in the hollow tooth is a church that collapsed in part by the bombing and Berliners as the left has to remind future generations that can destroy a man in seconds. The area reminded us a bit of street and area Vardaros Egnatia in Thessaloniki, the night together "strange world" but in no way feel insecure. Due to fatigue our next stop was the Europa Center, which this time was closed and we are not particularly excited by the addition of a huge pendulum in the center of the commercial operating the fluid flow.
What we propose
• Seifelt The hotel is in a central location with good transportation and a good restaurant on the ground floor has a Greek owner. But you should know that the hotel seemed more pension and not 3 star as indicated in But it is clean, with spacious rooms and excellent breakfast.
• As the first day we suggest a walk to the bus 100 N. circular route that makes all the best places in Berlin to be the ticket costs 2.10 € per journey (which unfortunately we did on day 1)

Fourth day in Berlin - Potsdam
The Potsdam is a small town just 30 km from Berlin. What will you see in the area since the beginning of the green that comes out of the city (by car). The landscape before you reach the city is amazing with rivers and lakes. When we went into the city we saw a big square with a beautiful scenic footpath. Immediately after we visited a large arch that was the style of the apse of Brandenburg. Once we saw the beautiful graphics and very old houses. The Potsdam was a beautiful city and quite scenic.

Returning to Berlin park your car in one of the many outdoor parking in the area of Philarmonie. The building Philarmonie although it is great there is nothing special and is an outside covered with scaly decorative metal. Internally, however, is a magic circular structure and the space to place the orchestra (at the center of the room). On the edge of the building there is a museum with musical instruments which will delight anyone who deals with music and beyond. The most striking instrument is a church which is considered one of the largest and as you said a professor at the University of Berlin comes from Trikala and we were fortunate to find space, is built along the lines of ancient Greek courtyard. Immediately after we visited the Sony Center on the square Potsdamer strasse (has a small piece of the wall) is very close to Philarmonie. This is an impressive building complex yet most impressive roof of open space created by buildings. In the area there are movies (4D), a Lego land restaurants and of course a branch of Sony.
Since decided that day to xepodariastoume started on the Brandenburg Gate, which seemed very close but unfortunately no s. Before reaching the gate we passed by the Jewish Holocaust Memorial, which consists of marble blocks of different sizes placed in a large area and cause a real spectacle raises your thoughts. At the edge of a memorial and museum which was not visited because of tiredness .. Immediately after the stunning Brandenburg Gate, which separates the two huge street 16 June and the Under De Linden (the way the lindens). The place was full of tourists and all kinds of kits (for our criteria) activities dressed as some German and American soldiers. Generally the whole area of the Under de Linden is what the tourist area. After these back to the hotel and get ready to leave that evening dinner included in the Jewish Quarter and the square hagenmarkt. Park your car (after 8.00 the parking is free to the public car park) behind the red town hall. The region there is amazing but i 'return in one and the epispeftikame other day. Admittedly we left the car far enough and walked one as the Jewish quarter over 20 minutes. But when we reached the square was filled with youth groups and was full of life. Everywhere jugglers and artists can imagine. It must be a party to the Berlin sleep really late.
What We propose
  • Potsdam only for short visits diarkeias.Aaxizei can visit the old castles and gardens.
  • Philharmonie museum
  • Lunch at Sony Center in which the restaurant you want a little smitten prices
  • Hacgenmarkt Jewish quarter for evening
