Berlin: Baby Metal Concert, Video Game Museum & 60s Diner

Hey guys (^-^)v

during this year's sommer holidays, I spent some days in Berlin to attend the Baby Metal concert with a friend and to spend some time there with my mom and my boyfriend.
I always plan to take some pictures during concerts to share them with you, but I always end up not doing it because I want to enjoy every moment of it and decide to leave my phone in bag that I hand in at the cloakroom..

So again, I only have some pictures from the outside of the concert venue:

concert venue: Huxley's Neue Welt (named after Aldous Huxley's 'brave new world' I think)
lots of people although the doors were already opened when we arrived as we got a bit lost on the way x'D
 Have a derpy picture of us before the concert with Eric from Sylt who we met while searching for the event location x'D

The concert itself was really amazing and we had lots of fun! ♥

The next day my mom and my boyfriend came and we spent another 2 days in Berlin. My mom found an interessting hotel and we wanted to give it a try:

This was our 'room' x3
It's like camping but in a wooden hut. They are equipped with light and electricity but nothing else. For washing and going to the toilet, you have to go to a central house on the camping ground. It was really funny, but as summers in Germany are kinda unpredicatble, it was terribly cold although it was August...
It was great there and the staff was really friendly, so if you want to give it a try if you're coming to Berlin, this is their homepage:

The next day, we went to the 60s diner for breakfast/early lunch.

They not only have really cool walls and mini music boxes at the tables, but also amazingly decorated washing rooms:


 Unfortunately, the food wasn't as good as we remembered it to be, so we might go somewhere else the next time..
In the Hotel, we found a brochure about a videogame museum located in Berlin and thought we had to go there.
On our way, we also found a museum dedicated to Berlin's speciality food 'Currywurst'.
They sold Currywurst plushies and Japanese brochures xD

But let's move on to the videogame museum ^-^

 Like a museum is supposed to, they have many exhibits showing the history and evolution of video games, e.j. computers with the first computer game and postcards with printed chessboards you could send to and fro between two parties to play chess over a long distance, but also lots of videogame consoles of course.

But the museum does not only have exponats to show you the evolution 

of video games, but you can also try them!
They have lots of old games you can try. For example a programm called 'Eliza', which was created in 1966. It is based on a simple writing programm, where you can type in a question and Eliza answers it ^-^ My boyfriend gave it try:


But the best part for me really was the arcade centre!


They had lots of games you could try ^-^
 It was the first game I could play Space Invaders as a real arcade game!


I even made it to the highscore list in Asteroids:
(6th place ^-^)


It was really fun to go there ^-^
You could even play Dance Dance Revolution or see one of the first arcade games ever: Pong. But unfortunately, you could not try this one out..

After spending several hours in the Videogame Museum, we wanted to grap something to eat and decided to go to the Japanese Crepe Restaurant Crepestation


We had a Matcha Latte, one crepe with strawberry cheesecake and one with chocolate icecream, cherries and peaches ♥


Last but not least, I want to show you a picture I took at a subway station. All walls where covered with pictures of famous inventers and their inventions, among them was Gyro Gearloose *-* (his German name is Daniel Düsentrieb)

And that's how our trip to Berlin came to an end.
I hope I can come back again soon as I really like this city.

Thank you for reading!
See you next time (^-^)v
