Other than a food tour, we had zero hard commitments on our Berlin itinerary.
The backyard alleyways would be perfect for a beer in summer, but still seemed festive in winter against grey skies.
So we wandered and walked in the cold, enjoying a wintery city that we had pretty much to ourselves.
If you are planning a trip to Berlin, plan Sunday carefully. Our Sunday turned into a museum day because what we didn’t realize is that most shops and eateries are closed by law until 1 pm on Sunday. (The opposite of Italy, where IF something is open on Sunday it is only open until about 1:30 pm!)
