Having been to Berlin a few times now we decided to visit some places we had not seen before. First on my list was Galeria Kaufhof in Alexanderplatz. This was billed as the KaDeWe of East Berlin and it did not disappoint with a wonderful Food Hall and Steiff and Pippi Langstrumpf collection in the Toy section! After a look around Gestalten and lovely bagels in Barcomi's we headed to Alexa Centre to view the wonders of the Loxx Model Railway. All in all a great first day in a wonderful city.
