Berlin-A city graced with extreme fun


Characterized by super clubs, a wide range of adult entertainment, cheap beer and spectacular sightseeing, I was not surprised when Berlin overtook London to attain the title of the most interesting city on the Planet. This is a great vacation to a city that has been the backbone of European history for centuries and was soon soaked in the thriving nightlife and lost in the craze surrounding live music, street food and trendy bars that left me yearning for more.

This is my next stop after the beautiful Hannover Christmas Markets, One of the best Christmas experiences you will have in your lifetime. I just got in from the short Train ride from Hannover. Only an hour and 47 minutes with the cheap ticket of 29Euro. with the 7:30 morning train.

This list of things to see and do in Berlin is simply overwhelming.

Start by climbing the glass dome of the Reichstag

This facility depicts Berlin’s intricate blend of old and new structures and ideas. Built back in 1884, the Second World War almost saw its destruction before its ethereal and patently modest glass dome was designed by Sir Norman Foster. Winding up the spiral walkway, you will have an all-round view of Berlin City before you walk out into the wind-swept viewing platforms.

Don’t forget the museums

All the 5 major museums in Berlin are located in a compact area identified as the museum land in central Mitte area. The classic Pergamon museum will treat you to exclusive views of the 19th century Pergamon Alter, which is a representation of the battle between giants and gods. Here, you will also share a glimpse and a walk through the ornate processional way of Babylon.

Look at the remains of the Berlin Wall

Berlin WallThe longest stretch of this wall is shorter than one mile, found in the central suburb of Friedrichshain. It is a symbolic example of the structure that once divided the city into the Eastern and Western segments. Today, however, it has been decorated with meaningful and colorful art, featuring more than 100 colors and iconic images.

Treat yourself to classical music

Finding my way to the Berlin Philharmonic, I discovered that it was not an ordinary city orchestra. Owing to its formidable international repute, you don’t have to be a diehard classical music enthusiast to enjoy the day. A night at the orchestra headquarters building is one of the most memorable things that you will have to narrate. Besides the free lunchtime concerts, getting yourself an evening ticket will do you justice. The acoustics are just stunning regardless of whether you stand or sit somewhere in the building.

Shopping and dining

In Friedrichstrasse, pop into Dussmann cultural department store, the largest of its kind in Berlin. Shopping sites also extend outside of Central Berlin, especially to Tegeler Weg where you will find Platten Pedro, the biggest antiquarian record shop. This is an amazing treat for collectors like me. Back to Mitte, you can stroll to the flagship courtyard which offers anatomical footwear and futuristic designs.

Berlin is graced with both international and regional cuisine, and all you need is to book a table in one of the restaurants such as Mark Brandenburg. If you desire some superb views of the city, breakfast at the Beletage restaurant will be the most reasonable. There are a lot more restaurants that are considered the kings of Berlin street food, not forgetting live music and cocktails in lounges that are evenly spread through Berlin.

For lovers of fun and art, Berlin is one of the best places to be. If you need cheap adult and youthful entertainment, then Berlin should top the list of cities that you plan to visit next.
