The City

Welcome to Berlin, Capital of Germany and urban powerhouse. Young by European standards, dating only as far back as the 13th Century, nevertheless the city has been shaped by a complicated and tumultuous history, evidence of which is visible at nearly every turn.

Almost destroyed by bombing during World War II, and thereafter physically divided into east and west sides by an impenetrable wall only demolished in 1989, the city has risen once more from the ashes into a stronger and more forward thinking community.

Reconstructed historic monuments such as the iconic Brandenburg Gate sit shoulder to shoulder with impressive modern constructions. This is most notable at the imposing Reichstag parliament building, carefully restored to its 19th century grandeur, yet with the addition of a state of the art glass dome, intended to symbolise Berlin’s united and democratic future.

A more welcome remnant of the formerly bisected city is the diverse and distinct suburbs, each with its own unique personality and charms. In Mitte cosmopolitan shopping malls intermingle with sobering historical monuments, whilst in Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg relaxed days are passed at hip street food markets or quirky museums, whilst the nightlife carries on until dawn.

The Culture

Famously proud of its inclusive and diverse community, anything goes in Berlin. Museum Island in the centre of the city is home to some of the most important art and antiquities in the world, while the nearby Circus hotel hosts a collection of David Hasselhoff memorabilia. Over 700 art galleries and 50 theatres can be found within the city limits, despite which performance art and impressive murals overflow out onto the streets in all directions

The Gastronomy

Tastes in Berlin are as varied as its inhabitants. Whilst the city collectively ploughs through 70 million portions of Currywurst each year, and local specialities such as Wiener schnitzel or pork knuckle can be found everywhere, International favourites from fish and chips to fajitas are easily located. A trip to Germany wouldn’t be complete without enjoying a stein of beer, and visitors will not struggle to find a welcoming bar.

Weather

The average temperature in Berlin in October is around 14 degrees, and some rain could be possible. Pack a warm layer and a waterproof to fend off short showers or a cold chill as you explore this fascinating city.
