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.

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.

August 24, 2021

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.

Amazing city with various museums and vintage market. The transportation system is well-constructed, people are nice and with good English level. The culture life is excellent, the food is good and in a reasonable price.

Honestly, my last visit in Berlin was a total triumph due to central location of my fabulous host Apartments am Brandenburger Tor. Every famous spot was at walking distance : few minutes to Barndeburg gate, few Minutes to Tiergaten Park, 10 minutes walking from TV tower Berlin, with plenty of atractions, supermarkets, souvenir shops, restaurant's of all kinds, Madame Tussaud Museum, or Alexa Shopping Center .....for shoppers. If coming by car....Berlin is yours in few minutes driving to Berlin Zoo & Aquarium (must see spot in Berlin for all ages), but most of all you have your own parking spot for just 10 EUR / day , just on the roof of former Fuhrerbunker. Awesome place, fabulous city.

Great city with an unfiltered view of it's own history and Germany. If you visit other areas of Germany, you may get a very filtered view. Berlin gives you the real deal of how everything went down, and reality from a global perspective.
