City Guide of Berlin, Germany!

Viewed: 122  

People are always wondering whether Berlin is now one city. Or whether, after 20 years of unity, it is still split in two. Or maybe a bit of both? So many questions. And somehow all three are right. Berlin is different. But Berlin is still Berlin. Germany's capital city has 3.4 million inhabitants in 12 districts. Here are a few of the most important facts about the city.

Berlin is a monster-sized capital, eight times the size of Paris. Plan wisely. First, head up to Norman Foster's panoramic glass-domed Reichstag (German Parliament), and join photographers for the obligatory twilight snapshot of the glowing Brandenburg Gate. You can spend days roaming Tiergarten park's lake-dotted woodlands and UNESCO-listed Museum Island's galleries, where Egypt's Queen Nefertiti hides. Trace Berlin's turbulent past at the Libeskind-designed Jewish Museum and walk the artiest stretch of Wall at the East Side Gallery.

Shopping in Berlin
Berlin has a lot in store for shopping sprees. From wickedly expensive temples of consumption overflowing with designer labels to flea and antique markets, shopping malls, bargain stores and the whole spectrum in between.

For Luxury designers and international chain outlets head for Kurfürstendamm or Friedrichstrasse. For flair, trendier boutiques and hip Berlin labels browse around Mitte.

Restaurants & Dining
Down-to-earth and sociable, Berliners love lazy brunches in Prenzlauer Berg's bohemian cafes and fun street food. Join the queue in muticultural Kreuzberg for mustard-slathered Currywurst (curried sausage), pan-fresh falafel and shawarma. Foodies dine at Mitte's Michelin-starred restaurants and enjoy French food by candlelight in Charlottenburg's intimate bistros. For a real taste of Berlin, feast (as Napoleon once did) on fat pork knuckles with lashings of sauerkraut at the wood-paneled 17th-century tavern Zur Letzten Instanz.
