Now that I knew more of the layout of Berlin, it was time to explore some of the historical sites. I didn’t have enough time in my trip to properly visit all the museums that Berlin has to offer, but I was able to explore the grounds of a few of them, and even trek a bit outside of the city towards Potsdam.
