About Berlin

Including tips for the best time to visit Berlin

Berlin is a city of rapid growth, where innovation and diversity have fused together to create a young and vibrant culture. You’ve only to join a walking tour to discover examples of jaw-dropping street art, or evidence of a music scene that has drawn the likes of David Bowie and Iggy Pop as one-time residents. The city is also one of Europe’s major startup capitals, with new enterprises opening every week.

That being said, landmarks of eras gone by remain among the city’s biggest attractions. The historic Reichstag wows visitors with its gleaming glass dome, while sections of the graffitied Berlin Wall, which divided the city for almost three decades, still stand in Potsdamer Platz. The iconic Brandenburg Gate has become a symbol of reunification since the wall fell in 1989, and is undoubtedly one of the highlights of any visit.

In summer, it tends to be hot enough to explore the city outdoors, or enjoy a spot of sunbathing in Tiergarten Park.

In winter, visitors flock to Germany’s capital to see glittering Christmas Markets like Berliner Weihnachtszeit, which is set up annually behind Alexanderplatz. Wrap up warm and stroll from stall to stall, buying festive souvenirs and mugs of hot Glühwein in this storybook setting.

What other travellers say about Berlin


3rd trip here.

1 April 2020

3rd trip here. LOTS to see. Still haven't seen it all. Prices for restaurant food and groceries all reasonable. ( beer and wine much cheaper in supermarkets than U.K.) Transport by rail and underground MUCH better organised and Cheaper than U.K E.G. Airport to central Berlin less than £3 on train. Even off peak in U.K. would have been way MORE than double plus more for on going underground connection.

A fairly beautiful city with a great heritage, there are interesting and even exciting architectural structures. In some areas, I didn't feel very comfortable, especially in the city center. In general, I liked Berlin, but if compare it with other cities of Germany, there are cities that I liked more.

Berlin is a beautiful city, always well prepared for you to have a good stay at it. I love its parks, its historic buildings and its colorful streets with people of different nationalities walking through them. I love Berlin.

21 March 2020

Berlin is a really nice city much prettier than we thought it would be. We went for brunch at the BT tower which was fabulous then did a guided river cruise of the city which was really good. Our favourite tour though was the free walking tour which lasted 3 hours. Such an informative tour and walking around the city we saw much more than we would have on the bus. Mike our guide loves the city and his passion was infectious we absolutely loved it. The Coronavirus restrictions had just kicked in so we could not visit the parliament but we will go back to this lovely city and see it next time.

We've been to Berlin several times. We go for the culture: museums and opera. Opera at bargain prices! Public transport is excellent. We like to contact the recent past: WW2 and the East-West split. It's a city easy to explore n foot.

17 March 2020

Our first trip we stayed 500m from Checkpoint Charlie and it was a great location from a historic point of view. Went on a 3 hour walking tour which was fantastic to learn about Berlin. We would have missed lots of important things without this insight. Transport around Berlin was easy and inexpensive. We ate at lots of different places, but the two Italian Restaurants we ate at were Cash only, and one of them 'escorted' us to an ATM to withdraw money for payment - that was the only negative. Loved Berlin and would go back for a longer stay.
