Why Travel to Berlin, Germany?

Why Travel - The Berlin Wall

This part of the Berlin Wall is located at East Side Gallery Graffiti.

As the capital city of Germany, Berlin is the largest city in Germany, the second most populous city and the seventh most popular urban area in the European Union. Approximately one third of the city area consists of forests, gardens, parks, rivers and lakes, which are ideal for the temperate seasonal climate in Berlin. With a population of just over 3 million people, Berlin was first documented in the 13th century and has since earned the distinction of being a world city of culture, media, science and politics. Dynamic festivals, contemporary arts, diverse architecture and a great nightlife are just some of the many reasons why you should visit Berlin.

    The Berlin Philharmonic

    Widely regarded as one of the foremost symphony orchestras in the world, the Berlin Philharmoniker is a must-hear when you visit Berlin. The Philharmonic goes on extensive tours under the guidance of conductors whose artistic license produces a program bristling with classical and contemporary choices. If you are a classical music aficionado, make sure that your visit to Berlin coincides with their famous orchestra performing at home.

    The Berlin Wall

    Although the Berlin Wall was mostly demolished between June and November 1990, there is a restored stretch that lies along the southern border of Wedding and Mitte. Visit Checkpoint Charlie, the famous Cold War east-west border control, which has now been transformed into a tourist centre that features comprehensive display boards detailing the history of the Wall. If you fancy a more visual history, go walking along the Wall by the Spree.

    Indulge your taste buds at the countless take-away joints around Berlin. Try some Currywurst, an idiosyncratic combination of pork sausage which is cut into slices and smothered with a mixture of curry powder and ketchup, and served with fries on a bread roll. Konnopke’s Imbiss on Schönhauser Allee has been serving up Currywurst in Berlin since 1930.

    The largest forested area in Berlin, Grunewald is located to the south-west of Charlottenburg, and is easy to reach via S-bahn. Pack a tasty picnic and head over to Grunewald for a day of tranquility, far away from the hustle and bustle of big city life. Go through the forest by foot, on bicycle or horseback. If the weather is good, you may even take a dip in the clean waters of Wannsee or Schlachtensee, the nearest of the several freshwater lakes in the forest.

    Largely attributed to the Second World War, the architecture in Berlin is fascinating and ranges from the historical to high modernism, to the more controversial post-modernism projects. Visit the Reichstag, the home of the German parliament where you can take in a breathtaking overview of Berlin. The roof of the Reichstag is a structure made entirely out of glass, which allows visitors to take in a panoramic view of the city.
