Berlin has a lot to offer, with many destinations on your journey steeped in history such as the famous Brandenburg Gate, the Berlin Wall and Checkpoint Charlie, to name but a few.
The Museums Insel (Museum Island) contains five grand museums built between 1830 and 1930, and is the place to quench your thirst for ancient art and artifacts, as well as 19th century European art.
Although Berlin is certainly a place to go if you’re interested in history, it also has a lot to offer to entertain the senses with its vibrant alternative music and arts scene, which attracts artists from all over the world who have chosen Berlin as their adopted home. Berlin, much like New York, is a city that never sleeps, and caters for every taste.
There is much to discover for the opera and classical music enthusiast, and on the flipside, the party scene is second to none with its many bars, venues and experimental performance spaces. If you have spare time after all the history, art and music, make some time to shop at Berlin’s most famous shopping destination, the KaDeWe, or off the beaten track at any of its many flea markets, or at smaller gems like the Hackeschen Hoefe, with its smaller boutique shops offering products by young Berlin labels.
All in all, Berlin certainly can’t be covered in a day, and may take a week to fully experience all it has to offer, but it will always invite you to come back to let you start where you left off.
