The magnificent city of Berlin is now in the premier league of city-break hotspots. Berlin is constantly reinventing itself as a fast-paced, offbeat and creative city. While the city has an amazing buzz, it also has acres of parkland and miles of meandering waterways. The public transport system means Berlin is very easy to use as it is efficient, inexpensive and runs near to 24 hours a day. If it is your first visit to the city, you’ll be enthralled by Berlin’s vitality, bustling street life, amazing selection of shops and excellent nightlife!
The amount of ethnic eateries in Berlin is continuously expanding, but among some of the best restaurants at the moment are Vivali, Margaux and Bocca di Bacco. They’re in high demand, so make sure to check that you don’t need a reservation, as it’s sometimes necessary, especially for Vivali.
If you’re heading out during your stay in Berlin, why not visit Green Door or Victoria Bar? Both are great for a few drinks, and you could start your night in one and then move onto the other.
The swanky Ku’damm area has the largest selection of retail stores and the KaDeWe department store is definitely worth a visit. If interested in fashion head down to Hackesche Hofe and Alte Schonhauser Strasse where there is a host of boutiques and eccentric small shops that will suit your needs.
When in Berlin...
Make sure to visit the Brandenburg Gate, the Berlin Museum, the street of Unter den Linden and the Flea market that pops up on the weekend!
