Not many cities have gone through as much change as has Berlin. Bombed mercilessly during World War II and then divided into East and West Germany until 1989, Berlin has spent the past couple of decades in rebirth. While filled with almost 1000 years of history, the city is young in countless ways -- modernist buildings, avant garde art galleries, university life and pulsating nightclubs have led to a newly integrated cultural norm. Berlin’s multiple districts each possess their own unique charm and attractions, and summer festivals highlight the city's joie de vivre. For history and culture buffs, visit Museum Island in the central Mitte district, which contains the Alte Nationalgalerie along with the awe inspiring Berlin Dom (Cathedral). ... Read more
The Berlin Wall memorial draws German and international visitors alike. Politicos might enjoy lunch at the Reichstag, Germany's stunning parliamentary building and popular tourist attraction. Many of Berlin's over 200 bars and clubs are regarded as the best in Europe, including rooftop bars, bunker techno clubs and sultry wine lounges. Plentiful hotels mean good deals. Transportation throughout the city is simple, with frequent bus, rail, and subway stops.
The weather can be grim in winter, with freezing temperatures often coupled with biting winds and harsh, icy precipitation, but Berlin is a city that prides itself on its indoor attractions, including world-class museums, art galleries and restaurants, so if you can only travel at this time, it’s not a loss. The best time to visit Germany’s capital is late spring and early fall, which both neatly avoid the high temperatures and crowds of summer, but when temperatures are warm enough to hit the beer gardens and revel in outdoor nightlife and events. Look out for big festivals like Christopher St Day and New Year's, when hotels fill up far in advance.

Berlin is amazing with history and unique nightlife. There is so much to do and see; highly recommend the Stazi prison museum on the outskirts.

One of my favorite cities in the world. An amazingly clean, efficient feeling city. A wonderful mix of modern and old coming together. I was on a jazz club hopping trip and found the most amazing spots in Berlin. Really awesome place!

Berlin was a vreat place for historical sightseeing and great nightlife. The city was easy to navigate and the sights where marked well. I suggest to wear comfortable shoes to walk around but there are still plenty of bus tours, if you would rather see the city thst way. The public transport is easy to use as well. After a day of walking the 100 bus will get you to most places in the city and is cheaper then the tour buses.

Awesome city full of so much history and different cultures. Often the sights are quite spread out so the tourists aren't all congregated in one area and you get a more authentic experience.

This town is amazing. I was amazed at all the construction, but it made sense after learning a majority of the city was bombed during WWII. The level of history in this town reminds me of something similar to Rome, where you may be standing on say, Hitler's bunker and not even realize it until you see a small marker and sign with the history.
The bridges across this city are walkable, and the entire city is bikable. There are no hills in the city! The town is very liberal, and worldly- you can find every type of cuisine here.
The city still reflects the east vs. west design, politics and influence over it's city. Truly worth a visit and wish I had more than 5 days.
Do a bike tour, it's well worth it.

Berlin is not Germany where anything goes. The wall created a self-sufficient eclectic vibe that still permeates the city. It reminds me of the Weimar period- chaotic creative, and Avantgarde

I wouldn't recognize Berlin today. When I traveled here many years ago, there was East Germany, the Berlin Wall, and Checkpoint Charlie. I remember approaching the Brandenburg Gate from both sides and carrying worthless Ostmarks in East Berlin and with no place to really spend them. Then there was the subway system, part of which crossed into the East and slowly crept through the "Ghost Stations". Potsdamer Platz? In no man's land between 2 cold war worlds. And whether I was eating or shopping well in the West or wondering if I was being observed in the East, my Berlin experience remains unforgettable.

Berlin is a fascinating city with plenty of modern culture and spirit along with a lot of history. Much of the architecture is very interesting.
