It is best to plan at least 3 days for a trip to Berlin. If you like it then, you will always come back.
Apart from the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag building, the Museum Island is a popular sight, especially for those interested in art and culture. Besides many museums, the Berlin Cathedral is also located here. A little further on is the Berlin television tower with a great view over the city. Local favourites are also the Teufelsberg and the Sunday flea market at Mauerpark.
Berlin Mitte is particularly attractive for a city trip. Centrally located in Berlin, you can quickly reach all sights from here. Also popular are the hip Friedrichshain with many restaurants and bars, as well as the chic Prenzlauer Berg with galleries, small stores and cosy cafés. For a shopping trip, it is best to look for a hotel near the Kurfürstendamm.
There is always something going on in Berlin. The most popular shows in the capital are the VIVID Grand Show in the Friedrichstadt-Palast and the successful show of the Blue Man Group.
The best time to visit Berlin is in the summer. Berlin has many green parks where you can relax in the summer. There are fascinating street festivals in the summertime, such as the Carnival of Cultures or Fête de la Musique. Also boat tours through the city centre are a great way to explore the city from the water when the weather is good.
