Berlin, Germany

This Month: Berlin, Germany

Berlin is right in the heart of continental Europe. Germany's capital is creative and vibrant, and is well known for its festivals, diverse architecture, nightlife, contemporary arts, efficient public transportation networks and high quality of living. Its urban settings and colorful history also provide an intriguing setting for one of the world's major film festivals. But Berlin can also be a peaceful place to relax and unwind. Around one-third of the city's area is composed of forests, parks, gardens, rivers and lakes. To quote the German writer Jean Paul, "Berlin is not so much a city as the world in miniature."


Things you can do:Map of Berlin, Germany

  1. Berliner Fernsehturm: Care to enjoy Berlin from the top? The Berliner Fernsehturm stands at 365m (1197 ft) and is the fourth tallest freestanding structure in Europe. The visitor platform sits at a height of about 204 meters (669 ft) above the ground and offers a magnificent view of the entire city and its surrounding area. A few feet above that is a revolving restaurant, which rotates once every 30 minutes. The ultimate dining experience. Open March to October daily 9 am to midnight and November to February daily 10 am to midnight.

  2. Berlin Wall East Side Gallery: While most of the Wall was destroyed in 1990, a section along the southern border still remains. Make sure to visit Checkpoint Charlie. Now a tourist center, it was once the infamous east-west border crossing point during the Cold War. For a more pictorial history, take a walk along the Wall by the Spree. The East Side Gallery, a one-mile stretch, is devoted to art and conserves the paintings made on the eastern side when the Wall came down. Open daily 24 hours.

  3. Tiergarten: Known as 'Animal Garden' in German, Tiergarten is the largest urban park in Berlin. At 520 acres, it's more spacious than London's Hyde Park (308 acres) but just a bit smaller than New York's Central Park (827 acres). From Tiergarten's widest point you can walk through gardens, forests, around a lake and into the Berlin Zoo. You will probably need more than one day to explore all of its beauty, but one popular retreat within the park is the Cafe am neuen See, a popular open-air restaurant and Biergarten. Additional areas of interest are a relaxing spot called Rousseau Island, the English Gardens and coffee shop. Open daily 24 hours.

  4. Kulturforum: This Center in the heart of Berlin, characterized by its innovative modernist architecture, is one of the most significant cultural sites in Germany. The museum is dedicated to music, art and culture, and is home to well renowned institutions such as the New National Gallery, the Gemaldegalerie and the Philharmonie (home of the famous Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra). In the summer months, hundreds of film lovers bring comfortable beach chairs and enjoy open-air films in the Piazzetta. Open June 29 to September 9.
