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!


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.


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.


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.


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.

What people are saying about Berlin

Lovely place, enjoyed my stay in Berlin so much!

Being in Berlin for only 3 days I got to see a lot and experienced it all by using my welcome pass! Travel on any bus/train in all zones without the worry about where and how to buy separate tickets. Great discounts at attractions, such as Berlin Zoo! Overall I would really recommend having this neat little add-on for such a small price.

Good way to get an overview of the city and its sights.

The bus went pretty close to all the major sights. The guide pointed out the sights in both German and English. I understand a bit of German and as far as I could tell the descriptions were quite similar. We hopped off a few times and it was easy to get back on another bus. A convenient way to see things without quite so much walking.

Fantastic and very interesting tour. Our Guide, Rachel, was fantastic.

A leisurely walk through some of Berlin's most interesting historical sites. For a city which was largely destroyed during and after WW2, there's still plenty of hidden architectural gems to see among the more recent buildings. Our guide, Rachel, originally from California, was very knowledgable and spoke clearly and concisely about the city, and at each stop along the wall. personally, I think this tour made the trip for us, and would recommend it to any first time visitor.

Worth it if you make the most of transport and museum entries

This pass was extremely useful to me, as I used public transport constantly throughout the day and also made it to 4 of the 5 museums on Museum Island during my stay in Berlin.
