Berlin: culture by day, clubbing by night.
Berlin still bears the visible signs of its unique past, which is precisely what makes it Germany’s most fascinating city.
Dynamic, vibrant and rich in culture (there are over 150 museums in the city proper), Berlin is an ever-changing, cosmopolitan capital.
For an immediate overview of the city, two places offer particularly breath-taking panoramas. The first is the glass dome of the Reichstag, home to German Parliament and a stone’s throw from the Brandenburg Gate, the city’s Neoclassical entry point and iconic symbol.
The second, rising 368 meters (1207 feet) above the famous Alexanderplatz, is the Fernsehturm television tower, visible from practically all of Mitte, the city’s old town.
The fourth tallest freestanding structures in Europe and one of the first to be opened to the public, it even includes a restaurant at a height of 200 metres above ground.
The charming historic centre is almost offset by an equally-interesting underground scene: from West to East Berlin, there are plenty of keller clubs, places to enjoy an alternative night out, dancing to electronic music in perfect Berlin style.
