Why should I visit Berlin ?

Where shabby charm and creative chaos collide
There is nothing like Berlin! Since the fall of the Wall, Berlin has become a vibrant metropole – and a travel destination that has a lot to offer: Foodies will enjoy the fantastic restaurant and bar scene. Party animals will love the crazy nightlife. And history buffs can admire the remains of the past that can be found all over the city. Be prepared to lose your heart to Germany’s hip, unpolished and … well … wonderful capital.

3 of the many reasons to travel to Berlin

  1. Travel to Berlin - Brandenburg Gate
    Brandenburg Gate
    The Brandenburg Gate used to be the symbol of a divided nation, now it is a symbol of peace and unity. From 1961 to 1989, the Berlin Wall cut the city in half and put the Brandenburger Gate right in a restricted area. When the Wall finally fell, thousands of Germans celebrated their freedom before the gate. So be aware: Walking through the gate knowing the history that happened here not long ago, might give you goosebumps.
  2. Travel to Berlin - Berlin Wall & East Side Gallery
    Berlin Wall & East Side Gallery
    By now, the Wall has been gone for longer than it stood dividing Berlin. But its remains can still be found all over the city. For example in Bernauer Straße, where the Berlin Wall Memorial and the last preserved part of the original border fortifications can be found. Or along the Spree, where 105 paintings have transformed the concrete monster into the world's biggest open-air mural collection, the East Side Gallery.
  3. Travel to Berlin - Museum Island
    Museum Island
    Berlin's Museum Island is truly unique. Why? This UNESCO World Heritage Site consists of five museums that were built between 1824 and 1930 and are surrounded by branches of the Spree river. Together, they illustrate over 6000 years of culture and history. Don’t miss the world famous bust of Nefertiti in the New Museum and the impressive large-scale archaeological structures in the Pergamonmuseum – they'll bring you right back to ancient times.

When is the best time to visit Berlin?

Berlin is awesome all year-round. From the beginning of May to the beginning of October Berliners are out and about, enjoying the mild weather and celebrating the warmer months with open-air events and by drinking beer in beer gardens and rooftop bars. During the cold season, Berlin's countless shopping districts and 175 museums will keep you busy. And don't forget about the amazing Christmas Markets that open every December.

Berlin Travel Tips

  1. food
    Tastiest food to try
    Currywurst at the famous Curry 36 or the lesser-known Curry Baude that many locals prefer. Also 100 % Berlin: Doner kebab. It was created by Turkish immigrants and you can get it basically everywhere. If you and your travel buddies are craving different things, try the fantastic indoor market Markthalle IX in Kreuzberg – it offers delicious food from all over the world!
  2. viewpoint
    Best viewpoint
    The Teufelsberg in West Berlin. The man-made hill was used as listening station during the Cold War and is not only Berlin's highest point but also a unique piece of history.
  3. get_around
    Easiest way to get around
    Public transport. Consider a WelcomeCard that also gets you a discount of up to 50% at 200 attractions or buy a simple day pass. Extra tip: For some cheap sightseeing, you can hop on the bus line 100 that passes Berlin's most important sights.
  4. shopping
    Perfect for a shopping spree
    Flea markets. Usually open on Sundays, Berlin's markets offer everything from vintage clothes and antiques to products by local craftsmen and designers. The most famous one – not because of its selection but mainly its atmosphere – is the Mauerpark-Flohmarkt. If you're looking for big brands, consider going to Kurfürstendamm, Hackescher Markt or Schlossstraße.
  5. art
    Most impressive art
    C/O Berlin for photography, the Hamburger Bahnhof for Contemporary Art and the Berlinische Galerie for Modern Art. Also keep an eye out for huge murals that can be found in different parts of the city and art festivals like 48 Stunden Neukölln or the Berlin Art Week.
  6. nightlife
    Best nightlife
    Berlin's clubs – world famous and so diverse that it's hard to give recommendations. For electronic music you might want to try Kater Blau, Sisyphos or the widely known Berghain. More into Hip Hop or Punkrock? Then Cassiopeia might be the place for you. Or try out Schwuz in Neukölln, where Berlin's colorful queer scene meets. Anyhow, if you're looking for something, you will probably find it in this city that really knows how to party.
  7. parks
    Nicest parks
    Tiergarten, Hasenheide, Tempelhofer Feld – to name just 3 out of the 2500 parks, gardens and forested areas that Berlin has to offer. Just find your favorite one and get comfy with the locals in Europe's greenest city.
  8. kids
    Most entertaining for kids
    The Naturkundemuseum (lots of animals) as well as the Deutsches Technikmuseum and its Science Center (perfect for little explorers). Bigger kids and their parents will also enjoy the Computerspielemuseum that shows the evolution of computer games and let's you try out some classics.
  9. secret
    Best kept secret
    The Prinzessinnengärten. In Kreuzberg, you'll find a site which had been unused for 50 years before locals started planting vegetables and creating a small green paradise.
