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

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

Couples walk hand-in-hand by the waterfall in Viktoriapark, while the experimental Gleisdreieck Park shows what a former no-man’s-land combined with a little imagination can create. 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 norm in Schöneberg, in Western Berlin, and the area is steeped in bohemian style. The out-of-use Tempelhof Airport hosts barbecues and concerts without a plane in sight, and the men of Nollendorfplatz wave their rainbow flags proudly. The liberty bell in Rathaus Schöneberg—the historic town hall—tolls with the sounds of freedom.

Friedrichshain is where lovers love and the young-at-heart play. The conversation—and coffee—flows in Boxhagener Platz’s eateries. Boutiques and bars fill the center, and the thumping beats of Revaler Strasse’s clubs spread fun into the night. The famous East Side Gallery memorial is a stretch of the Berlin Wall covered in murals.

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.

Also wanted to add that the bed, queen , was fantastic. Berlin has so many qualities, atmosphere, culture, uncanny feeling of history and survival, through the sense of humour and straightforwardness of the Berliners, might be mistaken for brusqueness but is based on this courageous sense of humour. And our family and friends are here... and the opera and ballet...
We stayed 5 nights in Berlin after arriving for Berlin marathon. Of course Covid precautions made everything a little more difficult but we really enjoyed running & walking around town and the parks. Recommend the DDR museum, and boat ride. German folks were nice and helpful even though our use of the language was minimal. Plan on returning to visit more museums and things we missed.
Visited Berlin for Berlin Marathon. It lives up to the hype and excitement. Well Organized Marathon with lots of energy. The race course is through the landmarks which is great way to explore the city and get energy during the run. Pedestrian, Cyclist friendly city with beautiful views. Recommend to anyone to spend few days in this great City.
The city needs to lower their on street parking from 2 euro per hour to .50 cents per hour. City is very dirty need to clean up the graffiti and broken glass bottles and animal waste. Otherwise a nice place.
Everything in Berlin is great. Endless ART options. Endless exhibit options. Endless FOOD and DRINKS options. I will go back every year for at least a week. My fav spots: Berghain art expo STUDIO BERLIN and also the expo's in the TEMPELHOF flughaven. My fav restaurants: Chen Chè (Vietnam), Poveracci (Italian), Milja und Schäfa (veggie), Cookies Cream (veggie). Transport is super easy: also endless options. Fav event: the Berlin half marathon. Perfectly organised.
Definitely worth a visit, many attraction and museums. But not for larger stay. Too dirty, noisy and many demonstrations with police alarms all over the city. The level of the most restaurants is also below acceptable. Very poor cuisine regardless what you choose.
