    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.

    What I remember from my trip to Berlin was museums (upon museums upon museums) and nightlife (upon nightlife upon nightlife). That was over a decade ago, and this European megacity's reputation on both accounts has only grown over the years.

    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.

    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.

    Some how less than the sum of its parts (East and West Berlin), Berlin is still a great city and should be on any European Grand Tour.

    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.

    I studied abroad in Europe and Berlin was one of the first places I visited while on my trip. After I booked it I wasn't really sure what I was going to do there and was worried it may have been a mistake to go, but I have never been so pleasantly surprised by any city. We stayed at Balmers hostel and did a free walking tour around the city. It was incredible. From seeing the Berlin wall, to visiting one of the most interesting and touching Holocaust memorials I have ever seen, to going to some of the craziest and most fun clubs in all of Europe, I have only fond memories of Berlin.

    Berlin is my favourite destination for vegan eats. Here's my top breakfast, lunch and dinner: Kopps' breakfast buffet is the tastiest meal I have ever had, with so many veganised breakfast foods, from British-style tofu-scramble, potatoes and baked beans to traditional German breakfasts and even American-style pancakes.Yellow Sunshine is a cute vegetarian diner serving organic fast food. Burgers come in a variety of shapes and tastes with a selection of patties and fake meats. Yoyo café is a bustling place with a community feel to it. Vegan gyro and a banana smoothie made for a tasty dinner. For any vegan that loves to eat, Berlin is the perfect citybreak destination.

    maybe it's because its weather when i visited, that cloudy slumber attitude made me depressed. more or less enchanted though, by its honesty.

    THE best city to PARTY!! All-week-long! At any hour, there is a great party going on!
    The best house-electro-techno-dub music at this moment is being produced and introduced to the public in Berlin. The clubs are an experience themselves! (Chack-out Katel Holgiz before June, because it is going down :( )
    The people there are going to party, not to show off their new clothes-tip: don't go to a berlin club well dressed- you'll be out immediately! And be prepared not to go home before monday midday!

    Although I did not have the best experiences here, Berlin was a very exciting city for me. It was like a chameleon due to the huge changes in architecture. I have still yet to see another city that feels more unexpected and disjointed.

    A vibrant city rich in both history and modern-day innovation. I've visited a number of times, as well as lived and worked there, and there's never a shortage of things to see and do -- be it visiting one of the city's eclectic ethnic restaurants or strolling along remnants of the Wall coated with colorful art. Plus, unlike most other large tourist magnet cities in Europe, it's extremely affordable.

    In Berlin, there's a youthful vibe surrounded by history and a storied past. Every step within the city leads you to an art gallery or museum. Many shaped by years of war. Buildings still show the scars of bombing and bullets. While much of the past is still visible, it's now surrounded by galleries and museums promoting freedom and unity. Very walkable, Berlin also has an amazing public transport system. Food of any kind can be found throughout the city. English was widely spoken.

    Berlin is such a cool, arty city that I felt a little intimidated by it. Big, industrial, full of independent endeavors from the quirky to the downright bizarre, it's a hotbed of artistic activity and cheap, cool life. Not to mention clubs and parties.

Description

Not many cities have gone through as much change as has Berlin. Bombed mercilessly during World War II and then divided into East and West Germany until 1989, Berlin has spent the past couple of decades in rebirth. While filled with almost 1000 years of history, the city is young in countless ways -- modernist buildings, avant garde art galleries, university life and pulsating nightclubs have led ... read more
to a newly integrated cultural norm. Berlin’s multiple districts each possess their own unique charm and attractions, and summer festivals highlight the city's joie de vivre. For history and culture buffs, visit Museum Island in the central Mitte district, which contains the Alte Nationalgalerie along with the awe inspiring Berlin Dom (Cathedral). The Berlin Wall memorial draws German and international visitors alike. Politicos might enjoy lunch at the Reichstag, Germany's stunning parliamentary building and popular tourist attraction. Many of Berlin's over 200 bars and clubs are regarded as the best in Europe, including rooftop bars, bunker techno clubs and sultry wine lounges. Plentiful hotels mean good deals. Transportation throughout the city is simple, with frequent bus, rail and subway stops.
