City Guide

Berlin’s history is rather dark. It did not only serve as Hitler’s center of Nazi terror, but also as the Cold War battlefield. But the city has risen to become a cosmopolitan city. With the construction of new skyscrapers and emergence of fashion boutiques and chic clubs, Berlin today has become Europe’s capital of cool.

The German capital offers many excellent attractions visited by thousands of locals and tourists everyday. In fact, there are several tourism centers in Berlin, and attractions are scattered all over the city. Check out the following: Checkpoint Charlie, Bebelplatz, Berliner Dom, Berliner, Rathaus, Brandenburger Tor, Pergamon Museum, Denkmal für die ermordeten Juden Europas, East Side Gallery, Dorotheenstädtischer und Französischer Friedhof, Fernsehturm, and Gedenkstätte Plötzensee.

You will also see the following around the city: Funkturm, Gedenkstätte Deutscher Widerstand, Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Gendarmenmarkt, Kulturforum, Reichstag, and Zitadelle Spandau. You may also want to visit Neue Synagoge Berlin Centrum Judaicum, St. Hedwigs-Kathedrale, or Jüdischer Friedhof Weißensee.

Berlin is one of the biggest cities in Europe. But the city has a good transportation system, which makes for convenient sightseeing tours. You can take the bus, train, tram, underground services, or taxis to get from one place to another. Taxis are easy to use and, unlike in other major Central European cities, a bit cheaper. Get a route planner for detailed maps and schedules for buses, trams, the U-Bahn, and S-Bahn.
