A Quick Guide to Berlin

Europe > Germany > Berlin

Welcome to Berlin

For many, the main association they hold with Berlin is the Berlin Wall. Even though it was broken down in November 1989, its iconic status has proved hard to shake off.
However anyone visiting Berlin today will be stunned at the city’s transformation. Many expect to see an austere concrete jungle and are pleasantly surprised by the modern and dynamic city that presents itself before them.
The west of the city has blossomed into a modern cosmopolitan centre full of gleaming modern buildings whereas the east is now a 21st century urban development. But that is not to say that it has lost its sense of history. Still evident are some of the old streets of East Berlin along with the grand architecture of Museumsinsel and Unter den Linden and the green vibrancy of Tiergarten Park.
Filled with museums, galleries and theatres it is very much a city of the arts. But it isn’t just a destination for the culture-vultures among you. Visitors are mesmerised by the unexpected laid-back attitude of Berliners and the lively nightlife that is on offer – anything from authentic beer halls to buzzing bars and Latino nightclubs. It is also fast becoming a centre for gastronomy – not something that one expects from a German city. However its streets are home to some of the best international restaurants in Europe. More info
