Berlin is the ultra-hip capital of Germany and an artistic and bohemian refuge. The city is divided into districts. Mitte is the undisputed historical centre brimming with trendy cafés, exciting galleries and many an illustrious landmark including the magnificent Reichstag and the Brandenburg Gate to the sweeping boulevards of Unter den Linden.  An amble through nearby Treptower Park reveals the poignant Soviet War Memorial while East Central is the place to go for real Turkish falafel and coffee, spending lazy days by the Spree and rummaging through local markets.

If you've come in from flights to Berlin, don't worry. Efficient under and over-ground trains make it easy to get around. With bicycles to hire on every street and great cycle paths, you’ll feel much more like a local on two wheels. Hotels in Berlin range from budget hostels like Wombats in Mitte, to Charlottenburg’s mid-priced hotels, in quieter surroundings just a few metro stops away. Cool Kreuzberg is also a backpacker haven but the many B&Bs there make it good for families. If budget is no barrier then book a room in Kempinski Hotel Bristol, the oldest hotel in West Berlin surrounded by elegant boutiques, theatres and well-to-do department stores.

Berlin and its history are inseparable. The East Side Gallery, a remaining piece of the Berlin Wall, is now a canvas for political artists, while the breath-taking Tempelhoff Airport serves as a reminder of the daring Berlin Airlift. Iconic Checkpoint Charlie was the once crossing point between East and West Berlin. A museum pass is great value if you want to explore the countless museums and public buildings Berlin has to offer.

With some of the most fashionable, kitsch and quirky bars in Europe, there is no shortage of ways to spend nights in Berlin. Clubs on boats, ping pong bars, festivals and fantastic beer keep most Berliner’s up until the small hours.

Did you know..?

The East Side Gallery is a 1, 316 metre surviving piece of the Berlin Wall and the largest open air gallery in the world.  Painted with the work of over 100 artists from 21 countries, this is a moving testimony to the preservation of Berlin’s history.

In the heart of Kreuzberg, Café Morgenland is well known to locals. This Turkish inspired ‘all you can eat for ten euro’ breakfast/brunch buffet is a real find. While a way a leisurely day eating by the waterside.

The canal may not be clean enough to swim in, but a floating swimming pool on the canal certainly is. Head for the hip Badeschiff for summer fun.
