Top 10 things to do in Berlin

The history of Berlin has seen it broken and divided, fashioning a city that's nightlife and neighborhoods are as much of a draw as its bountiful museums and jarring architecture. Every corner has a story to tell, but here are a few worth starting with!

Berlin: Alexanderplatz

Alexanderplatz

This holyland of 20's cabaret emerged as a Soviet showpiece in the Cold War. Central, accessible, and close to other key sights, it's the perfect launchpad for a jaunt around town.

Berlin: TV Tower

TV Tower

As the highest point in Berlin it can be seen from almost anywhere in the city. TV Tower tickets start at €13 for adults─a bargain for Berlin's best view!

Berlin: Branderburg Gate

Brandenburg Gate

Situated at the bottom of Unter den Linden, close to the Reichstag and Holocaust Memorial, the Brandenburg Gate is a monument to triumph, once in war, now in unity.

Planning your Berlin visit

When to go?

Unless you're averse to crowds, visit Berlin over the summer, when the city's relaxed street-life is at its most contagious. Include a Sunday to experience one of the bustling flea markets.

Where to stay?

Every Berlin neighborhood has its own character. Charlottenberg is relatively flash, with Mitte a trendier alternative. Prenzlauerberg is the city's café-culture capital, populated by young families. Schoeneberg is renowned for its gay clubs and bars, while Friendrichshain and Kreuzberg also provide plenty of nightlife options─most a little rough around the edges!

How to get around?

Berlin is covered by trains, trams, taxis, and buses. Train stations are largely unmanned with machines to buy tickets from. Many tourists mistakenly think the trains are free before being fined €40 by inspectors! The Berlin WelcomeCard covers public transport in Berlin and Potsdam for 2-5 days, and also provides discounts at many restaurants and attractions, including the Berlin Dungeon.
