Hopping on another tram, we were headed to the Deutsches Museum. This is advertised as one of the largest and most important collections of technological and natural science items in the world. Yet, on the way, we discovered a quaint looking little bookstore that had all of the sensory appeal of days gone by where you wanted to hang around and browse through the books. With a wall of English books, this was entirely possible for us to do and picked up a couple of titles. Interestingly, these were new books, but they were cheaper than what we normally pay for used books back in Hungary. It is a conundrum as to why.
Berlin has plenty of museums (one has to choose only couple of them, else more than a week time is required to explore all), we chose Pergamon museum, an amazing one, it took about 3-4 hours to explorer the museum.

Neues Schloss Meersburg
For New Schloss (Castle) you have to walk a few more steps up. The Schloss is very much like typical new German castles, a big building colored in lighter shade with a green garden in front. What is ultra-unique about this castle is the view! A co-traveler called this "the culmination of the day trip to Meersburg". You can spend hours sitting here, enjoying the breeze over the lake and the magnificent view. I was told that the Alpine range can be seen from this height, however bad the bad weather ditched me!

Old National Gallery (Alte Nationalgalerie)
The Alte National Galerie (Old national gallery) houses one of the most important collections of 19th century painting in Germany and includes masterpieces by Caspar David Friedrich, Adolph Menzel Edouard Manet Claude Monet, not to mention Auguste Renoir and Auguste Rodin. The Alte National Galerie is one of the five museums forming the ensemble known as Berlin’s Museum Island – a UNESCO World Heritage site. The architect Stüler, his building resembles a Greek temple. Sculptures on the tympanum show Germania, the personification of the German nation, as a patron of the arts. The temple is raised and rests on an enormous pedestal. Massive steps outside the neoclassical-style building lead to a platform in front of the portico. The Old National Gallery is most well-known for its fine collection of nineteenth-century paintings. The Alte Nationalgalerie also boasts the world's largest collection of works by Adolph von Menzel, one of the most prominent German artists of the nineteenth century. The museum also has a collection of statues, including many works from German sculptors Christian Daniel Rauch, Johann Gottfried Schadow and Reinhold Begas. There are also some bronzes by Auguste Rodin on display.
Kaffeemuseum Burg (Museum of Coffee)
We visited Hamburg’s Kaffeemuseum Burg (Museum of Coffee). The first thing to note about this place is its extraordinary smell. The scent of roasting beans will fill your nostrils from a good few hundred metres away as you approach the building, and if you’re anything like me, that’s a very welcome prospect indeed.
