Things to do in Berlin include visits to many cafes, clubs, bars, museums, art galleries, shops, and historic sites. Reichstag Building and its new glass dome--offering panoramic views of the city--is a perfect example of the fusion of renovation and innovation so typical for today's Berlin. Museums like Topography of Terror and Mauermuseum - Museum Haus am Checkpoint Charlie speak of the city's not so glorious past, while the 18th-century Brandenburg Gate epitomizes European unification and continued peace. Once trapped in the no man's land dividing East and West Germany, Potsdamer Platz now attracts visitors with its ultra-modern architecture and ample shopping opportunities.

Where to stay in Berlin

The Kreuzberg neighborhood near the Oberbaumbrüke bridge is central and full of Berlin icons: street art, a piece of the Berlin Wall, the East Side Gallery, and a proliferation of cafes. Friedrichshain is another option with a hip vibe due to the students who congregate at its cafes and galleries. Consider Mitte as a historic home base. Mitte is the area where almost all of Berlin's well-known buildings are located, and it is within walking distance of Alexanderplatz. For a peaceful residential area, try Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf where the streets are lined with boutiques and quiet coffee shops.
