Holding a central role in European History for the last century, Berlin offers a fabulous setting of classic views through its numerous historic landmarks and spots of antiquity combined with a calming atmosphere represented by its tranquil parks as well as its metropolitan festivities, making it perfect for both relaxation and exploration.

To choose among so many major attractions of the city, the must-visit ones would likely be Berlin’s three World Heritage Sites: Museum Island; the Palaces and Parks of Potsdam and Berlin; and the Berlin Modernism Housing Estates, all displaying European classic designs and panoramas storing pieces of the city’s narratives in the past. For more touch of antiquity tourists can go to Berlin’s series of world-class museums and galleries such as the Bode Museum, Pergamon Museum, and Old National Gallery, some libraries like Humboldt Forum and the Berlin State Library as well as Berlin State Opera and Berlin Philharmonic for classic show enthusiasts, not to exclude other popular landmarks such as Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag building, the Berlin Wall Memorial and the Berlin Television Tower, the tallest structure in Germany.

Berlin is of course not all about classic and antiquity as the city also owns diverse modern rendezvous through its pubs, bars, restaurants and nightclubs providing outstanding cuisines and entertainments with relatively low price compared to other European destinations. The heat of festivities can be found in its annual festivals such as Berlin Film Festivals, Lange Nacht der Museen, and Oberbaumbrücke Festival hosting various musical and cultural shows creating a hectic atmosphere to blend into the local crowd. Tired of the metropolitan noises and wishing for a little relaxation, tourist can always count on the city’s ‘green oasis’ such as Tiergarten, Tempelhofer, and Görlitzer Park or Grunewald providing fresh air with tranquil view, an escape from the city’s bustle.
