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!

Alexanderplatz

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

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!

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.

Reichstag

Germany's parliament is an icon of Berlin architecture. The modern glass dome crowning the Neo-Baroque building is open to visitors. From the dome of the Reichstag building you can experience an outstanding view of the city.

Government District

The Reichstag isn't all the Government District has to offer. At the north-eastern corner of Tiergarten Park, it's home to some of the best modern architecture in Berlin.

Madame Tussauds Berlin

Madame Tussauds is relatively new to the city but already has a colorful history. On opening day a visitor tore off Hitler's waxwork head! Only in Berlin!

Berlin Dungeon

See out a rainy day at the Berlin dungeon for a reminder of the city's nasty past. Large groups get generous discounts.

Potsdamer Platz

Once a post-war wasteland, Potsdamer Platz is now the spot for top-class hotels and film premieres (including the IMAX). The Berliner Philharmonie is just around the corner.

Kurfürstendamm

Known locally as Ku'Damm, this 2-mile boulevard forms Berlin's shopping district. KaDeWe─the continent's largest department store─marks its easternmost point near Wittenbergplatz.

Gendarmenmarkt

In the historic Gendarmenmarkt the Berlin Concert House stands flanked by 2 cathedrals. Entrance to the German Cathedral is free, but the older French Cathedral costs €3 a ticket.

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 €60 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.

Berlin Segway Tour Reviewed by Ross, 01/28/2016

Went all the way around which helped to decide where to get off second

Good value. Audio commentary helped a lot to understand the layout of the city. We went all the way round and stayed on a second circuit as we knew knew best places to hop off. The wall, checkpoint Charlie etc. Pleased.

An amazing and unique experience to know the city and it's art

Totally a worth experience. The guide was so cool and funny so the group had an amazing mood during the tour. He is totally into the street art community. The stories behind each work are really interesting and the workshop experience is amazing! I would definitely do it again anf totally recommend to everyone

Tais was my second time there and it was amazing!!

Great scenarios and a cool way of learning Berlins history! The staff at the entry could be more likeable, but once you start the show you're in for a blast!
