Yesterday later in the afternoon we visited some remains of the Berlin Wall and wanderd arround the city to Checkpoint Charlie , seen the watchtower but I must say to me Berlin compared to Londen or Paris is less attractive . Today we head to Potsdam .
We been using public transport and walked a lot . Compared to Kopenhagen we did last week it’s also less clean and more traffic here (exhaust fumes ) , Kopenhagen was much more relaxing to visit .

Today we visited Potsdam , about 35km from Berlin . Took the train included in our pass we got . The weather was ideal to explore the city , 25celcius light clouds now and then.

Iben and I try to figure out how and if we go to CS in Düsseldorf – either by Cali or plane. Are eager to see the new T6.1 before we eventually order. But its tight that we can make it due to work. Will let you know if we go – maybe we meet :)

Thismorning at 10am drove out of Berlin Wohnmobiloase after a 3 night stay
C6889EBA-BC37-4D5F-90C3-6A0A79C34B30.jpeg
Drove about 530km today ending up at Solingen , a free aire next to the firestation (hope we sleep well tonight) . Only 38km from Dusseldorf were we head to in the morning hoping to see the T6.1 California at the caravan&motorhome show.
In Berlin it was 20cel allready a 10am , during the ride we only saw this go down [email protected] home it’s been raining the last few days .....should we go back there?
Anyway , the ride thru Germany was ok if you like Stau und Baustelle! At least 15-20 times we needed to drive narrow lanes for work on the motorway ....as i said earlyer : don’t like driving in Germany .
We passed Hannover also , what is there to see:oops:....das VW kundencenter ! About halfway our ride so perfect to stop for a break

After visiting Hannover Kundecenter we drove up to Solingen to spent the night at a free aire as said in post above , but here is the link.

We had a good night sleep with a few others and took of a 8.30am heading for Dusseldorf show witch wax only 38km driving from Solingen.
When we got there we had breakfast while waiting for the doors to open at 10am(toast in the RidgeMonkey ....so easy!)

Never went to Dusseldorf caravan&motorhome show and this would be the biggest motorhome show i ever went as Brussels show is not that big.
We had free tickets from CCN Amersfoort and so only needed paying 10€ for a dayparking.
The show was big with all the large motorhomeproducers and vans , lots on the side about camping and travelling. But we went to see the T6.1 first !

Will comment about it in an other thread.

Walked about 5hours there and then headed direction Belgium to arrive home about 18pm .(220km)
Again dealing with a number of stau/baustelle until entering Holland suddenly the ride was smooth....
Unpacked the Cali a bit : fridge, cloting,....and lighted the fire in my stove as it was colder here then in Germany.
Had a good night sleep in our home bed , feels strange after 19nights in the Cali.

We drove from DK after work yesterday. Had a free aire at a campercenter 1 hour from the Caravan Salon. Ending on the parkinglot and ate breakfast while waiting for the doors to open. Went straigt for th T6.1 and spend some more hours around to get confirmed that Cali is best for us. Now at the restaurant in Autostadt. Will be back home tomorrow. Seems we are living our lives similar those days

We went straight to that Berlin Stellplatz from Hannover after the 1st factory tour this year. The WC and showers weren’t good at all but the location was really great by the supermarket and S and U-Bahn stations.
Thank you. I finally found what I was looking for.
