Hardly any other city in Germany is in such a constant state of flux as Berlin. And Berlin is the only place you can experience German history so close up. Museums, monuments and special city tours keep the memory of the Berlin wall alive. Nostalgic tours with the legendary double decker bus, boat trips on the Spree, conventional city tours and personal tours on unknown places – you can discover Berlin in many ways.
Readings, high-quality opera productions, world famous dance events and ballet – Berlin has more cultural offerings and events than almost any other city. Theater des Westens (Theatre of the West) enchants musical fans and Didi Hallervorderns Wühlmäuse are a real highlight for comedy fans. Directly at Kurfürstendamm you will find the fascinating multimedai exhibition Story of Berlin. And the Staatlichen Museen zu Berlin also have a lot more to offer than the beautiful Nefertiti: The UNESCO world cultural heritage site the Museumsinsel (Museum Island) houses the Pergamonmuseum, Nationalgalerie, Bode-Museum and the Altes and Neues Museum.
Berlin is the centre of Germany's political life: The Reichstag, headquarters of the German Bundestag (parliament) and the surrounding government buildings bear impressive witness to this. The glass dome of the Reichstag building and the renowned Berlin TV tower at famous Alexanderplatz with its Telecafé provide an incomparable panorama view of the German capital.
There is no nicer place to be in summer than Berlin: The German metropolis has an unbelievable number of beaches and natural waters. The beautiful lakes Großer Wannsee and Großer Müggelsee are located in the city and the Spree, Havel and Dahme rivers flow through the heart of Berlin. Experience aircraft taking off and landing at the Airport Lake in Tegel in a romantic city setting, while at the cosy Schlachtensee you can dangle your feet in the water.
