Berlin hosts many festivals and events throughout the year that showcase its ever-changing demographics, including Grune Woche, the Love Parade and the world-famous Berlin Jazz Festival. Sample delicious local cuisine, tour museums and art galleries, or enjoy late-night action at a pub, dance club or theater. No matter when you go, there is always something going on.
What was once the Berlin Wall is now the longest open-air gallery in the world. Witness pieces of the wall that divided the city for nearly thirty years, and check out the memorial sites at the East Side Gallery, the Berlin Wall Memorial in Bernauer Strasse, the Berlin-Hohenschönhausen Memorial and the green Mauerpark. You can also follow the Wall’s route on bicycle via the Berlin Wall Cycle Route.
Berlin is a shopaholic’s paradise, from international, designer fashion and hip Berlin styles to second-hand vintage shops and street markets. For short breaks between shopping and sightseeing, the city’s twelve boroughs all have great restaurants and cafes. Try the typical Berlin cuisine of pork knuckle with mushy peas, aspic on fried potatoes or meatballs, or a yummy classic like currywurst and doner (smoked sausage with a side of chips). Visit a dessert bar, or celebrate the end of your day with a delicious cocktail in a stylish sky bar.
Visit cosmopolitan Hamburg to discover a bustling harborside city. Cologne features magnificent Romanesque architecture and a beautiful cathedral. Many of Germany’s major cities have interesting medieval architecture and exciting nightlife. Grab a street vendor’s bratwurst and pop the cap of a pilsner before dancing at a club, enjoying a friendly game of pool or watching local soccer.
Stop by Muggelberg hills for a taste of country life, visit the Old National Gallery, or spend a day strolling around Babelsberg Palace on the banks of the Havel River. Whatever you choose, Berlin’s enchanting and unique attractions and culture will leave you coming back for more.
Plan to see key sites like the Reichstag Parliament building for a look into the past. Ride a giant hot-air balloon high above the city to enjoy spectacular bird’s-eye views. Stroll through the famous Brandenburg Gate and Museum for a peek at more than 300 years of history.
