SANA Berlin hotel mainly because it has apartments (two rooms, kitchen, and living room) which works best for our family, and was in a convenient part of town (close to the zoo and shopping district), and wasn't too expensive. It was pretty nice, with an organic breakfast buffet we tried one morning that was quite good but pricey. For the rest of our breakfasts and lunches, we used groceries we brought from home and from the Edeka market across the street.

Frank and I wanted to make sure we saw at least a few of the historical monuments/sights of the city, so we walked with the kids (Lily on our backs and Cooper in the stroller) for a few miles starting at the Brandenburg Gate, down the boulevard of linden trees, to the Berlin Wall, and then to Museum Island. Literally every block of the city has amazing monuments or historical placards. You could easily spend a month exploring.

Hoping we can visit Berlin again in warmer weather, but it's hard for us to return any place we've been since there are so many more places I want to visit in my life at least once! How about you all? Do you like to return to places you know are wonderful, or do you tend to try new places out each vacation you take?
