Viking Sky, Day 9 (Warnemünde/Berlin, Germany)
Sunday, September 3 we made port at Warnemünde, Germany, and took a train that the cruise line had chartered into Berlin, about two hours away. This was a special treat for me, as the train was very similar to the ones I had ridden around Germany and France while living in Europe in the 1980s.
While in Berlin we took a tour of the city and then visited the famous Brandenburg Gate, Holocaust Memorial, and Checkpoint Charlie, and had lunch at a traditional German restaurant with our friends David and Candida from the U.K., who just happened to be visiting there at the time.
