Berlin in Autumn. Is it worth a visit?
Berlin is a fascinating city with history and architecture to rival any city in the world. The question is given the high prices is it worth a visit in the autumn?
Unfortunately the greatness of the place and the short days with darkness coming from 4.30 pm meant I would not be positive in spending money to come here.
The city was wet and muddy meaning that walking through Tiergarten was not a pleasure . Queues everywhere to get into any historical building and few smiles to be seen. Prices were also expensive. In a small cafe not in a popular area a cheeseburger cost 10€ and a large Americano coffee 5.90€.
In a lesson for other cities though there were few cars to be seen in the city centre.
On the positive side a good transportation system and decent if wet and muddy pedestrian walkways.
Would I return again in autumn? Definitely not. Cities like Riga and Prague offer far more for far less at this time of year .
The street art is not too shabby though tucked away in small side streets.
