Berlin, as the capital of Germany, is a city steeped in history, culture and politics. One of the most historically significant sites in the city is the Berlin wall which divided the city in to Eastern and Western halves for decades before it was torn down in 1989 and led to a re-unified Germany in 1990. No trip to Berlin is complete without taking a walk around the remains of the wall and getting your photo taken at Checkpoint Charlie.
Another place to visit on a trip to Berlin is the impressive Alexanderplatz or ‘Alex’ as it is known to Berliners. This huge square also holds plenty of history within this wonderful city. Today, Berlin is one of Europe’s most modern cities with many great modern hotels and shops throughout, but the history of the city is still there for all to see.
Other places you should definitely visit in Berlin include the famous Brandenburg Gate, the spectacular Berlin Zoo, the impressive Reichstag parliament building and the superb Postdamer Platz. With an abundance of great restaurants, cafes and clubs, Berlin is a great location for a short city break for visitors of all ages and interests.
