With probably the most infamous 20th-century history of any city in the world, Berlin is an absolute treasure trove for curious visitors. From Weimar-era delights to the horrors of WWII and subsequent decades of division, the city presents its unique story with a simple honesty and grace.
In its current guise as Europe’s buzzing capital of culture and tech, Berlin offers an abundance of world-class galleries, exhibitions and restaurants to be sampled at a typically leisurely pace, with charming green spaces punctuating the urban sprawl.
But what to see the first time you visit? Whether you’re a museum buff or clubbing fiend, there’s something to suit your every mood. Here’s our guide to getting started.
