Museums and Nightlife Dominate Berlin
What makes Berlin really special is the sheer amount of activities it offers to both visitors and residents alike. With over 50 world class museums such as the Museumsinsel, also known as Museum Island, which features a very impressive collection of ancient artifacts inside places such as the Pergamonmuseum.
After spending a day in one of the many excellent museums, the next thing to do is join Berliners in their outstanding nightlife options. For a few hours of dancing the night away to live music and DJ’s head to the Eastern part of Berlin to the Prenzlauer Berg, Mitte and Friedrichshain districts. Visitors will find nightlife options for any age and style in these districts to have a great evening filled with plenty of entertainment.
Plenty of Shopping
While Berlin might be best known for it’s history and nightlife options, there is actually some fantastic shopping to be had as well. For visitors looking to shop till they drop with the latest in European styles, head to Kurfürstendamm. This street is the main drag for all shopping, but if you need to have even more shopping options just head around the corner to the Kaufhaus des Westens which is Europe’s biggest mall.
