About Berlin

Berlin, a city with a charged history and enormous appeal! A city trip with an exciting mix of stately buildings and ultra-modern architecture. Berlin is different from other cities. Of course, Berlin, like most European capitals, is large and varied with an old core in a modern guise. Historical yet hip again, gray in some places but very green and almost Mediterranean in others. However, what makes Berlin so different is its history.
The appearance of Berlin today is a fascinating mix of old stately buildings and ultra-modern architecture, with the only natural boundary being the River Spree, which divides Berlin not into east and west but into north and south. Berlin is now a cultural metropolis of the first order. The city is more popular than ever for young and old and there is a lot to do. Berlin, for example, has an impressive selection of museums. Well-known are of course the Pergamon Museum, the Egyptian Museum and Haus am Checkpoint Charlie, but this offer is still being expanded with spectacular new museums such as the Filmmuseum or with the redesign of existing locations such as the Alte Nationalgalerie.
