BERLIN

BERLIN

Go on a Tour of Berlin – the Mitte and surrounding districts are sufficiently compact to allow a number of excellent walking tours through its history-filled streets. You’ll see amazing things you would otherwise miss. Details are usually available from the reception desks of hostels and hotels.

Berlin

Pick up a copy of Exberliner, the monthly English-language paper for Berlin to find out what’s on, when and where. It provides high-quality journalism and up-to-date listings. If you understand German, the activity planners for the city, zitty and tip, are available at every kiosk. Be prepared to choose among a huge number of options.

It has many great parks which are very popular in the summer. Green Berlin operates some of them. The city also has a lot of theatres, cinemas, concerts and other cultural events going on all the time. Spas are very trendy and a massage can give you new energy after walking around and traveling. You can find dozens of flea markets with different themes (mostly on weekends), but worth checking out is the big one at Straße des 17.
