With everything from fancy boutiques in Prenzlauer Berg to hardcore techno clubs in Kreuzberg, this city is surely able to accommodate your needs, whatever they may be. Furthermore, Berlin remains an affordable destination for young backpackers on a budget, especially the East of the city where a beer may set you back as little as 70 cents at the local supermarket.

Berlin is a place that remains admirably conscious of its history, with various monuments and landmarks giving tourists an insight into its turbulent past. Landmarks such as The Brandenburg gate and Checkpoint Charlie stand at points where the Berlin Wall once divided this great city during the Cold War. The bustling, cultural haven that is Potdamer Platz is situated where there was once a desolate no-mans land, and now thousands flood every day to visit the plethora of museums and shops located there. Furthermore, the devastation caused by the Third Reich and the Second World War is given appropriate attention. There are various memorials such as the Soviet War Memorial and the Homosexual Memorial honoring those who died at the hands of the Nazis. Destinations such as the Topography of Terror also delve informatively into this dark time of the city’s history.
