Best Things to Do in Berlin
Berlin is the capital of Germany and is located in the northeast of the country.
Berlin has a great history that is reflected throughout the city. It was the capital of the third Reich of Hitler, reason why it underwent of strong bombings in World War II and later was divided in Eastern Germany or Communist Germany and West Germany by the famous wall of Berlin which collapsed at the end of 1989.
The first iconic place in Berlin is the Brandenburg Gate, which has been present in all the historical events of the city and is currently the greatest symbol of Berlin and Germany.
The other great symbol of the city is the famous Berlin Wall, which although it was mostly demolished, still preserves areas where it has been used for cultural and artistic expression.
The most visited part of the wall is the East Side Gallery where you can find some of the most famous murals that have been made.
Another of the current symbols of the city is the Fernsehturm or Television Tower, because thanks to its enormous height can be seen from many points of the city.
Berlin also has great museums, most of them on the so-called museum island and worth visiting. Highlights include the Pergamonmuseum and the Neues Museum.
Next to these museums is the Berlin Cathedral.
The Memorial to the Murdered Jews in Europe is also a museum and monument or memorial they should visit.
Berlin has a street food dish you can find almost anywhere called Curry Wurst which is a German sausage with tomato sauce and curry.
You will also find many places of Kebab as there is a very large community of Turks in the city.
Being honest the food is not the main attraction in Berlin like the beer which is recognized as well throughout Germany. There are many places to meet and enjoy excellent beers from both well-known German brands and local craft beers.
Berlin is now a city that hosts many urban cultures as it shelters many young people by having prices not as high as other cities in Europe and is also a center of culture and modern arts.
Hipsters, darks, punks, musicians, photographers, painters, theatrical artists, are some of the examples of communities and cultures that you will see around the city. This diversity makes the nightlife in Berlin one of its great attractions because of its eccentricity.
The most famous nightclub in Berlin is called Berghain, which is housed in an old factory and warehouse. They play Trance music and is said to have one of the best sound system in the world. But before deciding if you want to attend there are some rules. Only small groups are allowed: 3 people can already be considered too much, the dress code is all black and if you wear some fur is better, it is not allowed to take photos and preferably better not carry a mobile phone, you should not smile or laugh in the queue ... if you manage to comply with these rules, it is said that inside there are people who party from Friday until Monday morning.
Another icon of the rare nightlife in Berlin is Kit Kat, a nightclub where the use of clothes is optional or rather prepara to undress you. There is even preference in cost if you assist in underwear or naked. Inside the place there are many hedonistic scenes.
There are a lot of underground clubs mainly of electronic music and alternative rock, but do not worry, Berlin is so big that it also has more mainstream clubs like Watergate or Soda Club where there are no strict rules of access and more commercial music.
Berlin is a city where history meets with urban arts which creates a very diverse society. If you ever feel misunderstood, Berlin may be your city.
I say goodbye with a video in drone of the city, until the next one.
