When in Berlin

From oppressed and divided, to diverse and creative, Berlin is now a place where everybody wants to be. It’s a better place because of what it’s been through and overcome.

From oppressed and divided, to diverse and creative, Berlin is now a place where everybody wants to be.
It’s a better place because of what it’s been through and overcome. This is displayed by the stretch of the Wall that is now the East Side Gallery. Pieces of the past and old industrial lots are now transformed into art centres, hostels and clubs. What began as counterculture is now culture. This is a city that’s bigger than New York but, laid back; in all areas other than club entry. People of some 185 nations are residents of this metropolis, and that comes through in the culture: home of the Doner, second home of tango and home to thousands of foreign artists.

The history is here for all to see, from the Reichstag that houses the German government to the gates like Brandenburger Tor that show where the city limits used to be. Berlin has three UNESCO world heritage sites, one of these being the Museum Island, which houses the Pergamon Museum, within which The Great Altar of Pergamon resides.

Green spaces like lakes, parks, and gardens make up nearly a third of Berlin. It’s beautiful not only to cycle and walk in places like Tiergarten, but also throughout the city, past monuments and contrasting architecture built by different governments.

A simple pastime to enjoy here for some is sitting outside a spati- generally a small shop with tables- with a cheap beer. Beer goes well with most things here. You can grab a beer at a gym, or dance studio, in the Ramones museum or trade it for a Mate-Wodka and head to one of Berlin’s famous night-life offerings, such as the Berghain; where the Panorama Bar opens its shutters at daybreak for party goers to see the city still sleeping.

Welcome to the mosaic that is Berlin. You’ll soon find yourself walking down the road next to a computer science graduate who now sells things in Mauerpark Flea Market and does some Thai massage on the side, or with an engineer who spends the weekends clubbing from Friday to Sunday and is starting to see the merits of Veganarchism.

People come to Berlin to live, party and create. That’s what makes this place what it is today. This guide will help you get to know Berlin that little bit easier.
