Starting Your Day in Berlin
It is best if you can arrive in Berlin in the morning. You can have a heavy breakfast at the Scheunenviertel located in Mitte, Berlin’s central historical district.
After enjoying your first German breakfast, you can stroll down the streets of Mitte and visit several important historical sites. You can find the Brandenburg Gate, Reichstag, Checkpoint Charlie, and Deutsches Historical Museum at the Berlin Mitte district.
You can also visit the Teirgarten Park and enjoy the cool atmosphere of the Berlin morning. And while you are there, why not get a glimpse of Berlin’s Victory Column which is just a stone’s throw away from the park.
Night Life In Berlin
A week in Berlin will be incomplete if you will not experience its nightlife. There are several great pubs and clubs at the Hackesche Höfe offering techno and European pop disco music. You can enjoy the company of beer loving Germans in these clubs.
If you want to experience a bizarre evening in Berlin, why not try the Blind Restaurant which you can also find in the Hofe area. This restaurant offers a one of a kind dining experience because you will eat in total darkness.
Visiting at the Old Wall
When you are in Berlin, a visit to the old Berlin Wall is a must. Although some sections of the wall have disappeared already, there are still areas where you can still see parts of the infamous Wall.
There is a Berlin Wall Documentation Centre where you can find artifacts and objects tracing the history of the Wall. Nearby is a Jewish Museum that traces the history and travails of German Jews.
There are other activities you can do while in Berlin. You can try boating at Wannsee if the weather is nice. There are also lots of fish restaurants in the area where you can try different fish delicacies. Your week in Berlin would be incomplete if you will not try the great cooking and sumptuous food at the Wannsee restaurants.
