Leaves dance on the morning breeze in Tiergarten Park, before Potsdamer Platz - a network of malls and eateries – bursts into life. The sound of Berlin's orchestra floats on the wind through the Kulturforum Cultural Complex. Bellevue Palace glows a little more in the evening light, just as the nocturnal animals of Berlin Zoo call for attention.

This arty district is home to affluent city-dwellers. There’s a bucolic feel to the lush grounds of the Charlottenburg Palace, which houses a collection of opulent treasures. Kaiser-Wilhelm Memorial Church is a haunting place to spend an afternoon, followed by a splurge at KaDeWe – Continental Europe’s largest department store.

Near the sleepy residential area of Moabit, you’ll find the lush forests and groves of Tiergarten.

Couples walk hand-in-hand by the waterfall in Viktoriapark, while the experimental Gleisdreieck Park shows what a former no-man’s-land and a little imagination can achieve. Hours can be spent meandering through time across Graefekiez’s urban landscape. At dusk, the sun sets over Oberbaum Bridge and Schlesische Strasse's nightlife takes over.

Diversity is the lifeblood of Schöneberg in Western Berlin and the area has a distinct bohemian feel. Disused Tempelhof Airport hosts barbeques and concerts without a plane in sight, and the men of Nollendorfplatz wave their rainbow flags proudly. The liberty bell of Rathaus Schöneberg – the historic town hall – tolls the sound of freedom.

Famously youthful, Friedrichshain is where lovers love and the young-at-heart play. The conversation – and coffee – flows in Boxhagener Platz’ eateries. Boutiques and bars lie at the centre, while the thudding beats of Revaler Strasse’s clubs carry fun into the night. The iconic East Side Gallery is a stretch of the Berlin Wall covered in murals.

Berlin is a city of rapid growth, where innovation and diversity have fused together to create a young and vibrant culture. You’ve only to join a walking tour to discover examples of jaw-dropping street art, or evidence of a music scene that has drawn the likes of David Bowie and Iggy Pop as one-time residents. The city is also one of Europe’s major startup capitals, with new enterprises opening every week.
That being said, landmarks of eras gone by remain among the city’s biggest attractions. The historic Reichstag wows visitors with its gleaming glass dome, while sections of the graffitied Berlin Wall, which divided the city for almost three decades, still stand in Potsdamer Platz. The iconic Brandenburg Gate has become a symbol of reunification since the wall fell in 1989, and is undoubtedly one of the highlights of any visit.
In summer, it tends to be hot enough to explore the city outdoors, or enjoy a spot of sunbathing in Tiergarten Park.
In winter, visitors flock to Germany’s capital to see glittering Christmas Markets like Berliner Weihnachtszeit, which is set up annually behind Alexanderplatz. Wrap up warm and stroll from stall to stall, buying festive souvenirs and mugs of hot Glühwein in this storybook setting.

Tips for a great review What were your favourite places there? Most things were closed due to the global pandemic. Where did you eat? Nowhere public due to the global pandemic. Is it easy to get around Berlin? Yes What would you avoid on your next visit? covid 19
Easy to get around using public transport, make sure you get the Berliner pass saves on transport costs, loads of sightseeing, I needed more time in the city but will hopefully be back soon. You have to try the currywurst and the German beer Berliner and the Berliner herbal beer. People really friendly, also loved the German pastries, sausages and cheese. Visit the museum island then if you have enough time do some shopping make sure you try some local dishes. But would plan visit better next time to get more in.
This was my 4th visit to Berlin, and I would go back time and time again. First time taking my husband and little boy, so I visited the same sights as I had done in the past, but it's always nice to go back and see things again. Generally it's very easy to get around the city, with great transport links, and was easy with a pram too - the only thing that we found annoying was finding the lifts down to the station platforms, especially in bigger stations - I've never needed to use the lifts before but with a pram and being pregnant, it was difficult to keep carrying the pram down the steps. There are loads of places to eat near to the main attractions and most have a children's menu - we always got our little boy (aged 18 months) something for himself but usually he just wanted to try ours! The zoo was a good place to visit, and also the Reichstag - we were able to listen to the audioguide whilst our son ran up and then down the spiral walkway, having some freedom from his pram. He also enjoyed the lego discovery centre (as well as my husband who is a lego fan!)
Beautiful big city, you can feel as if you are on a history channel with all the monumental buildings, columns, statues etc. A lot of historical locations. TV tower is a must. You cannot get any better city view. They also have one of the best restaurants in the city.
3rd trip here. LOTS to see. Still haven't seen it all. Prices for restaurant food and groceries all reasonable. ( beer and wine much cheaper in supermarkets than U.K.) Transport by rail and underground MUCH better organised and Cheaper than U.K E.G. Airport to central Berlin less than £3 on train. Even off peak in U.K. would have been way MORE than double plus more for on going underground connection.
A fairly beautiful city with a great heritage, there are interesting and even exciting architectural structures. In some areas, I didn't feel very comfortable, especially in the city center. In general, I liked Berlin, but if compare it with other cities of Germany, there are cities that I liked more.
