Welcome to Berlin, the shapeshifting capital, a metropolis of energy, creativity and opportunity. This guide will be your Rosetta stone; we will help you unlock this exhilarating city, with our insider’s round up of all first-timer mustsees and dos. Inside is all you need to know about Berlin’s past, present, neighbourhoods, transport, language and all our favourite spots and essential sights. We won’t let shortness of time or money stop you from having the best time. We’ve handpicked the best value restaurants, bars, clubs and activities so you can make your euros go further. The city is drenched in history, art, culture and contradictions: from eye-watering architecture, to the war-torn wall, from weekend long parties to lazy days in the parks, from hipsters to bohemian revolutionaries.
It’s unconventional, unexpected and guaranteed fun. Mitte is right in the middle of all the activity. Anyone looking for the essential landmarks and the nucleus of the city will find it here. With the Brandenburg Tor, Fernsehturm and the central transport hubs, Mitte is a safe place to start your exploring. East Central Berlin is an expanse of opportunity; Friedrichstain and Prenzlauerberg boast wide boulevards, ‘macchiato mummys’, accessible arts, multiple bars and remnants of the wall. Having at one point been separate from the West, these areas are now fairly gentrified and fiercely popular.
Radical and ineffable, anyone wanting the alternative needs look no further than southeast Kreuzberg and Neukӧlln. These neighbouring areas have had their share of unrest and tribulations, but from the rubble has come some of the city’s most exciting and unpredictable sights, scenes and people. Tiergarten is the city’s largest park, so big it’s a whole neighbourhood. Anyone bored of Tiergarten is bored of life; there’s wildlife, lakes, imbiss, bars, historical relics and all the rest. Embassies, parliamentary buildings and commercial institutions can all be found on the fringe of Tiergarten.
West central Charlottenburg is upwardly mobile, full of Berliners who don’t embrace the chaos of the east, and prefer their city with a slice of style and luxury. With beautiful buildings, the Olympic stadium and war ravaged relics, it’s beautifully juxtaposed within itself. Every inch of the city has something for everyone, and we’ve broken down all our lovingly researched information into interests. Each review is colour coded too, so you can see which neighbourhood it is in, and can plan your outings as efficiently and as seamlessly as possible. We’ve included all the information you’ll need, where it is, how to get there and a little extra know-how to give you the edge. A crash course in history, transport and essential survival tips is here at your disposal.
So get reading, get exploring and start saying yes in this great city we call Berlin.
