About Berlin

Including tips for the best time to visit Berlin

Berlin is a fast-growing city where innovation and diversity come together to create a young and exciting culture. Join a walking tour and you’ll find plenty of jaw-dropping street art and experience the same music scene that drew in former residents David Bowie and Iggy Pop. The city is also one of Europe’s major startup capitals, with new companies opening every week.

However, the city’s biggest attractions are its historic landmarks. The Reichstag wows visitors with its shiny glass dome, while sections of the graffiti-covered 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 the summer, the weather is perfect for seeing the city on foot or enjoying a picnic in Tiergarten Park.

In the winter visitors flock to Germany’s capital to see festive Christmas Markets like the annual Berliner Weihnachtszeit located behind Alexanderplatz. Bundle up and sip on mugs of hot Glühwein while you check out all the stalls. You might even pick up a few souvenirs to remind you of this fairytale setting.

Loved Berlin!

Loved Berlin! The hop on hop off bus tour is an excellent way to acquaint yourself with the city. Loved all the stops on this tour. Enjoyed Museum Island, the Reishtag, and the Berlin Cathedral. Lots of great shopping and restaurants across Berlin.

Berlin is a city full of history - talking to you from every corner, building, monument. It is worth taking a sightseeing tour in order to understand and locate all the main attractions, and then spend the rest of your visit touring your places of special interest. One could spend there weeks and not see it all. Getting around is very easy- subway, tram, bus and train. There are plenty of restaurants, bars, beer places suitable for all tastes. The weather in winter (probably until May) could be unpleasant for those who do not like the cold - so better plan your visiting time accordingly.

The weather was absolutely terrible but we’re able to easily access the sites we had interest in via ubahn or sbahn. We found Berliners to be helpful and delightful. We never had a bad meal, the food was very good and very reasonable. Everyone should take advantage of their excellent rail system.

Walking a few steps back into history was the best part. So happy we didn't live through it, but as 60 something seniors we had learned so much about Berlin's past. Watching the peoples reaction at the part of The Wall that still stands was sad and is why we must learn from our past history!

There are not so many tourist spots but you would enjoy the local restaurants and bars. You can find real great foods there! Try some international foods not only German food. I'm not a big fan of German food (and I live in different part of Germany) so I tried Thai or Vietnamese and it was absolutely decent if you choose the right place. Also, party in Berlin is so much fun :)
