Art, Design and History in Buzzing Berlin.

Featured Guide
To me, Berlin will always evoke memories of amazing bars and streets full of people heading somewhere for a night to remember, but it also has other things on offer.  The galleries and museums and some of the best in the world with must-see collections and great travelling exhibitions. What is most unique about Berlin is the combinations of things you can do, so with this guide I mix  it up a bit.
From pre-war elegance to stripped back industrial design Berlin has a myriad of experiences that are all very accessible. Visit the perfectly preserved DDR decor at the Stasi Museum or the nouveau luxe NHow Hotel that now sits on the river Spree, there's no arguing that the city is alive with interesting things to do. So hire a bike and hit the streets.
