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!
Planning Your 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. Charlottenburg is relatively flash, with Mitte a trendier alternative. Prenzlauer Berg is the city's café-culture capital, populated by young families. Schoeneberg is renowned for its gay clubs and bars, while Friedrichshain 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
This guided tour was by far the best I have ever experienced. The weather was good, bikes were fine, but the guide, Vincent…. He is simply extraordinary! His wide knowledge and his ability to tell the “other” stories of the city spiced up with his personal commitment is something you should allow yourself to experience.
It was great. Our guide was so knowledgeable and friendly. Tour was extremely interesting and we learned a lot, not just about the Hansaviertel but about the history and architecture of Berlin. Loved it!
Very interesting museum on Hitler and Berlin's history. Must seen for those interested in history
A belépő elég drága. Nappal és este is voltunk fent. Csodálatos a látvány. Egyszer látni kell.
Hatalmas élmény volt, a gyermekkorunkat idézte. Interaktív a kiállítás. Sokan látogatják.
