Things to do in Berlin

What to see in Berlin

Starting from the iconic Brandenburg Gate, an 18th-century neoclassical monument, go by foot to visit the iconic Memorial of the Murdered Jews of Europe and Reichstag Berlin, which houses the German parliament.

Berlin is known as a hipster city with quirky street art scattered across the city, most famously on the East Side Gallery. It also has excellent museums located on Museum Island, a UNESCO-listed World Heritage Site where you can find five important museums, including the Neues Museum and the Pergamon Museum.

What to eat in Berlin

Germany is known for its craft beer, bratwurst sausages and schnitzel, but in Berlin, instead of the usual bratwurst, try the currywurst, a local creation made with a mixture of ketchup, Worcester sauce and curry powder. The Eisbein (pork knuckle) is a local favourite usually served with sauerkraut or potatoes.

Day trips from Berlin

If you have more time on your hand, definitely travel out to the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp, an hour away by train. It is where Jewish prisoners were housed and resistance fighters were executed from 1936 to 1946. Today, it is a museum with tours and renovated facilities.

You could also visit Dresden, a cultural centre of Europe only 2 hours away by train. The historical city of Dresden has been completely rebuilt after being almost totally destroyed during World War II.
