48 hours in Berlin at Christmas

Craig and I are back from a very cold 2 days in Berlin!

Where we stayed:
The EasyHotel in Mitte. This was our second stay here and I wouldn’t hesitate to go back a third time! What you compromise on room size, the location makes up for. I think it’s about a 15 minute walk to Alexanderplatz, or you’re very well linked by the U-bahn and trams just a minute from the hotel.
We actually had a slightly larger room this time- the last time we stayed here we couldn’t both get through the door at the same time as the ‘standing space’ on the other side was so tiny! The bathroom is a little partially frosted cube, so you need to be comfortable with whoever you’re sharing with. Bed was super comfy, but maybe that’s just because we’d done so much walking we’d tired ourselves out!

What we ate:
I was quite nervous about how my tummy would cope while I was away- it definitely wasn’t as placated as it is when I’m eating totally low fodmap, but was actually okay. I took peppermint oil capsules as well as the probiotics I’ve been advised to take by the nutritionist, and I think this helped too.
We headed straight from the airport to a Konnopke’s for some currywurst. We’d been here before as it’s apparently one of the best currywursts in Berlin. I’ve not eaten enough to verify, but it’s certainly very tasty! Since our flight was delayed we ended up here about 4pm I think, so we ended up not eating again that evening.
