If you are a museum nerd, Berlin will make you giddy. The German capital is home to more than 200 museums, ranging in theme from the usual (art, history, culture) to the completely bizarre (think: a Medical History Museum that displays deformed organs, the Currywurst Museum that pays homage to one of the country’s most beloved foods, and the Sugar Museum, dedicate to everyone’s favorite sweetener). When you are done geeking out for the day, check out the other reason Berlin is so popular among college students: the nightlife. Because this city is a hub for both local universities and international study abroad, there are ample options to keep the younger crowd entertained, from dive bars to great local music venues.

Berlin is amazing!! It's a city alive with energy of young people, artists, entrepreneurs, fashion, design, music! It's trendy and forward thinking. I love its style and take on the arts.

Probably the most affordable of Europe's major capitals, Berlin has incredible museums (153 of them at last count), great architecture (the Reichstag, Holocaust memorial, and Brandenburg Gate, just for starters), and serious historical interest. Add in one of the world's most cutting-age art scenes, scores of fantastic restaurants, and absolutely wicked nightlife, and it's easy to see why Berlin is known as Europe's 'Zeitgeist metropolis'.
Bar-hop through Kreuzberg eating amazing Turkish food, dance to drum'n'bass until 6am in an abandoned warehouse at Alexanderplatz, be served by blind waiters in a pitch-dark restaurant or just spend a whole day soaking up beauty on Museum Island, a UNESCO world heritage site: the depth and variety of experiences Berlin offers are endless.

Not my type of city but anyway good to see. Just two full days are enough to see all the pinpoints if organized and prepared well..

Perhaps one of my favorite cities in Europe, Berlin is beautiful, vibrant, and interesting. I love its unique combination of historical preservation and contemporary exploration - its weird and wonderful art scene, its diverse food culture, its commitment to forever re-inventing itself without forgetting where its been.

Berlin is a city on the move. It is a place where art and culture are encourage to flourish. It has a thriving bohemian / hipster scene. Berlin is heavy with 20th century history and an important stop on any European trip.

Berlin is my absolute favorite city in the world. A funky mix of modern culture and complex history is packed into Germany's largest city. From grungy neighborhoods to elaborate street art to the crumbling Berlin Wall to the city's iconic Reichstag, Berlin offers up endless culturally significant opportunities. Even after months of exploring, you're sure to find new things.

This is one of the great cities and capitals of Europe and is not to be missed. Now that East & West Berlin are back together it is doubly terrific. It is not an expensive city to eat or stay in. The transportation system is one of the best we have used. Go, you will like it.
