Why visit Berlin?
The contemporary buildings erase the city’s difficult past to create a unique atmosphere, where vintage blends pleasantly with the state-of-the-art, and the outlandish complements the everyday.
The vestige of the Berlin Wall makes an emotive open-air museum, where visitors can relive moments of anguish and horror by discovering numerous true stories about families that were separated for years. The death camps expose the best kept secrets on the consequences of a fascist regime and the bunkers transmit the terror that one day kept the city hidden by fear.
There is a wide variety of activities, day trips and excursions in Berlin that will wrap visitors up in its complex history.
The DDR Museum offers visitors a unique way of discovering the socialist state of East Germany or German Democratic Republic. Checkpoint Charlie, one of the most famous Berlin Wall crossing points, was the setting of constant escapes to West Berlin. While Museum Island offers a wide range of exhibitions for both tourists and locals.
