A vacation in Berlin is something for young and old. This metropolis has so many faces that it is more than worth seeing for all age groups. It offers your visitors a wide range of sights and activities and inspires with its interesting chronicle.
Berlin is known worldwide as the capital of the Federal Republic of Germany. With more than 3 million inhabitants, it is also the largest city in Germany. But Berlin is not only the capital, it is also a federal state that offers vacationers a lot.
There are several ways to get to Berlin. Everything is possible by train or car, but also by plane. Berlin has very good transport links, e.g. countless highways and two airports. But if you don’t want to drive into the city center with your own car, Berlin also offers the use of a very well-developed subway and subway system. With them you can reach all districts and places in the “bacon belt” of Berlin.
As already mentioned, Berlin has countless tourist attractions. Below is the television tower of the “Alex”, where you can also admire the famous world clock. Those who like it a little more modern will get their money’s worth at Potsdamer Platz. Here you will find breathtaking architecture that has been built on what was once Europe’s largest construction site in recent years. One of the most famous buildings on Potsdamer Platz is the Sony Center.
But historians also get their money’s worth in this city. The once divided city impresses with its interesting, oppressive and sad history. The world-famous Berlin Wall is clearly the center of attention here. It was built in 1961 and divided the city into east and west for decades. With the fall of the wall, Berlin was reunited. Even today there are “remains” of the wall in the city, for example in the Mauerpark or at Checkpoint Charlie in Friedrichstrasse.
Of course, shopping enthusiasts are also well served in Berlin. Whether on Kurfürstendamm, in Friedrichstrasse, in KaDeWe or in thousands of small shops, everyone will find what they are looking for.
If you want to escape city life, a visit to the Grunewald or the Wannsee is recommended. The outskirts of Berlin, such as Köpenik, are always worth a visit.
If you are planning a vacation in Berlin, there are numerous accommodation options. Whether guest houses, inns or hotels, there is something for everyone.
