Things to do in Berlin

Wondering what to do in Berlin? Anything you like is the short answer. You can immerse yourself in history or art, or you can party the whole weekend away. If none of that appeals, about one-third of the city is made up of parks and waterways. You can find somewhere to play or watch most sports too.

Where to start is the next important question. Do you visit the World Heritage site of Museum Island with its famous museums, especially the Pergamon? Should you delve into Berlin’s recent history by visiting the Topography of Terror and the memorial of the Berlin Wall? Or should you lose yourself in the architecture and music? You can combine both in a visit to Berlin Philharmonic. Make sure to visit the Reichstag for stunning views over Berlin.

Taking a walking tour is a great way to explore, and there are plenty available in the city. Get a transit map and explore on your own using Berlin’s transport system. Don’t forget to go to City West for great shopping at Kurfüstadamn, crossing the lovely Tiergarten to get there.
