Why explore Berlin? Berlin is one of the most exciting cities in Europe. It lives up to its reputation as an exhilarating, dynamic tourism hub, first because of the city’s art and culture scene, which is now much more alive than before. But the same goes for its shopping and dining scene, without mentioning the city’s crazy nightlife, considered as wild and one of Europe’s most electrifying. And since the government of Germany transferred here from Bonn, the city has been rallying to become the country’s and also Europe’s reborn capital.

The best ways to get prepare for the trip

Once arrived in Berlin, you’ll probably depend on the different means of transport because of its sheer size. Limit your exploration to two or three (if your time permits) neighborhoods a day. We also suggest you to buy a good map of the city, which you can buy at news kiosks or bookstores.
Get the ones that offer comprehensive indexes and full-color detail and make sure that you buy up-to-date maps that show the recent changes.

For more information on how to explore Berlin, go to the central rail station (Berlin Hauptbahnhof) which is open every day from 8 in the morning to 10 in the evening. You can also go to the tourist office at Neues Kranzler Eck , located along the popular shopping boulevard, Kurfürstendamm; this center is open from Monday to Saturday from 10 in the morning to 8 in the evening, and on Sundays from 10 in the morning to 6 in the evening.
