Berlin, Germany has the unique quality of being cool, modern, and historic at the same time. Whether it’s a stop on your tour of Europe or your only destination, visiting Berlin is a must at least once in your lifetime. Below are just a few of the reasons why this city can’t be missed!

Go for the History

Berlin has a great amount of historical sites, from the former site of the Berlin Wall and WWII memorials to beautiful cathedrals, palaces, and museums. There is just so much to see and absorb. The Berlin Wall memorial is an Instagram favorite located at the center of the city. There are preserved grounds behind it and traces of border obstacles on display to help visitors truly comprehend the decades long division between East and West Berlin during the Cold War. Visit the impressive Berlin Cathedral to view a jaw-dropping, ornamental edifice with its 100 sarcophagi and burial monuments from five centuries. Travel over to Berlin’s Museum Island, located on the River Spree, to tour some of the best museums in the world. And, of course, there’s the Holocaust Memorial—a hauntingly beautiful construct of over 2700 concrete slabs arranged in a grid pattern on a sloping field, commemorating the Jewish victims of the Holocaust. There really is no end to the restaurants and street vendors to choose from, so go and explore the culinary delights of Berlin!

Go for the Nightlife

After a full day of wholesome touring, Berlin is a great place to let it all hang out when the sun goes down. There’s something for everyone because Berlin nightlife is known around Europe for its inclusivity. From casual, trendy, artsy, and LGBT-friendly, to techno, hip-hop, pop, reggae, and DJ’s-- there are clubs and lounges tailored to pretty much every taste and community. There are even some clubs that have 24-hour nights where the party is going on all day and all night! If you’re looking for a musical smorgasbord, try Plastic, for instance. This club is located in a spacious, repurposed industrial complex with three dancefloors.  It features musical acts with international appeal and nurtures local acts as well. Wherever you go, some tips to keep in mind are to wear comfortable shoes and bring ID. Party on!
