About Berlin

In Europe, it is difficult to find a place that bears as many heavy historical scars as Berlin does. During World War II Berlin suffered recurring devastation from bombings but it has since emerged from the ruins reborn. Berlin preserves Germany’s long history, from a royal monarchy to the Second World War to stories from the Cold War. Museumsinsel—Berlin's Museum Island located in the Spree River—is listed as a World Heritage Site. There are not only charming exhibits on fascinating topics ranging from ancient times to the present, but also other museums from which you may gain a lot. The streets are full of graffiti which give the city a modern artistic atmosphere and temperament, but the most significant graffiti is painted upon the remains of the Berlin Wall. The nightlife in the capital city is also spectacular. Hidden under its serious governmental and historic countenance, Berlin's endless vitality makes itself known.

Popular Attractions in Berlin

Berlin Cathedral
4.7/5
527 Reviews
Church
Located on the eastern side of the Museum Island in the city of Berlin, the Berlin Cathedral is backed by the River Spree, which was once the church of the Hohenzollern royal family, whose family members were buried in the basement. The Berlin Cathedral was destroyed in World War II, and the repair work continues to this day, but it is still Berlin's eye-catching landmark, known as the "Museum Island entrance". The three baroque domes are extraordinary, and the four-story building facing the Spree River is decorated in a Baroque palace style, with a splendid style; the bell tower on the west side is still in service, the bells of prayer are long and long; the stairs can be climbed over the cathedral. Admire the stunning views of downtown Berlin from the top.
Parliament Building
4.6/5
529 Reviews
Historical Architecture
The Reichstag building is the home of the German Parliament (Bundestag). After reunification in 1990, the building was reconstructed to its current intimidating stone form. The building is notable for its severe appearance and modern glass top dome. Visitors can climb the dome and watch parliament meetings in action when they are occurring. A dedication reading Dem Deutschen Volken, meaning For the German people, is inscribed above the building’s entrance to signify the public duty of those who work within.
Brandenburg Gate
4.6/5
599 Reviews
Square
Modelled after the acropolis in Athens, Greece, this portal has seen some of the most interesting history in the world unfold at its gates. From marches through Pariser Platz, Napolean's armies stealing statues, and the burning of the Reichstag down the street, this monument is a testament to history. After it sustained heavy damage during WW2, the gate became inaccessible to most of the world, as the Berlin wall was constructed and the gate fell into the zone of death surrounding it-- it's only fitting that this was the site people gathered at in the hundreds of thousands to celebrate the end of cold war. Gather here for tourist information-- there's an office in the south wing of the gate. Notice, in the middle of the street, you can see the line where the Berlin Wall once stood; imagine what Brandenburg Gate would say, given the chance.
Museum Island
4.7/5
371 Reviews
UNESCO World Heritage-Cultural Site
Museum
Museum Island is located in the heart of Berlin, on the north side of the island of Spree. The island's buildings are a unique cultural heritage. There are many German museums, headed by the Pergamon Museum and five museums on the island. Different, but harmonious and unified, the Spree River flows from both sides, making their momentum more magnificent.

Trip Moments

Abby   
Travel in Germany | Berlin to enter the hotel in the landscape: Melia on the road, body and soul to get the best relaxation, it is important to choose a good hotel. When I arrived in Berlin, I stayed at the Meli Berlin. Outside the window is the Spree River, you can see the picturesque scenery without leaving the house. For travelers, traveling is also super convenient. The hotel's address is close to the Brandenburg Gate, Museum Island and Alexanderplatz, just 100 metres from the Friedrichstrasse stop. There is also a supermarket nearby. Most especially the revolving door has their own Berlin bear, and also with the crown, super cute "welcome." The room reflects the pragmatic features of Germany, simple and generous. In particular, the place where the luggage is placed is particularly large, which is suitable for long-distance travel with large suitcases. And the pillows on the bed also take into account the different needs of the guests, the size and shape. See the real chapter for details, very thoughtful. The room lighting is the warm color I like, and it feels comfortable to live in this cold weather. The hotel's dining is also very good, the welcome dessert is quite delicate and delicious, especially the gold foil macaron, the sweetness is just right. For travellers, the hotel is located close to the Brandenburg Gate, Museum Island and Alexanderplatz, just 100 metres from the Friedrichstrasse stop. There is also a supermarket nearby. Buffet breakfast is very rich, with a variety of specialty meat products, all kinds of drinks have everything. For a heavy drinker, there are Chinese tea bags here, especially. After breakfast, it will be full of energy. The most important window is the beautiful river view. It is a very enjoyable meal to bathe in the morning and the sunshine. It is also the beginning of a beautiful day.
