In October 2017, I visited Berlin, Germany to enjoy the music, sport, culture and history of Germany's capital city. There is much to see and do in the city for those with an interest in World War Two.
At 0720hrs on Sunday 22nd October 2017, I left Belfast International Airport in Co. Antrim. Northern Ireland’s main airport was once RAF Aldergrove, a busy airfield throughout the war. The destination was Schoenefeld Airport on the outskirts of Berlin. From there, it was onwards by train to the famous Friedrichstrasse Station.
Before checking in to the Heart Of Gold Hostel on Johannisstrasse, I visited four historic sites within a few minutes walk.
