Berlin Holidays

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, ... Read more
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). 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.

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 a city with a rich history, however it is contrasted by a contemporary, modern atmosphere that it exhibits today! A great place to experience the authenticity of German cuisine, as well as some excellent modern art. The history is all around you, but a walking tour of the city is a great way to learn some in depth information about what the city has endured.

Berlin is an amazing destination and you must visit if you’re in Europe. Here you can find everything from ancient paintings and sculptures to beautiful modern skyscrapers. Food culture is also exquisite since a lot of migrants come to Berlin, open their restaurants and sell traditional food.

This is a very cool place. I think it's even a good place to live.
I've been there couple of times and I really liked it.
I loved Kudam and Zoologische Garten, I read the book about the girl and her friends who got on a rough path and it all happend in Zoologische, so it was extra fun being there.
