I stayed a week in Berlin, could have easily stayed longer. There is so much to do there. I love history. Brandenburg Gate was a must see for me. Loved the DDR museum, Berlin Catherdral, Television tower has great views of the city (as does the Reichstag and Berlin cathedral) Museum Island was worth a visit, even if you don’t go inside the museums it’s is a beautiful area to walk around.
Berlin is chock full of history. I did three nights there and wish I had more. Highlights were obvious things like Brandenburg Gate, holocaust memorial, topography of terror, west side gallery, Berlin wall memorial. The cold war museum was fabulous. I took a trip out to Potsdam which was beautiful and stopped at Wansee on the way back at the haus der Wannsee konferenz which is fascinating for WWII history. Then there's strolling through Kreuzberg, the amazing food. Its a very vibrant city.
This is probably my favorite place so far there is so much to do you’d need weeks to fit it all in. I went to the zoo, it’s the best one I’ve been to. Visited a few museums (there’s so many) and the cathedral which has hundreds of steps so it’s difficult but the view was worth it for sure. I participated in a 4 hour walking tour of the history we covered the Berlin Wall, checkpoint Charlie, Brandenburg gate and memorial sites. Was extremely informative. Again everything is walking distance however the trains are really easy to use and cheap.

Things to do: - Brandenburg Gate - Reichstag Building - Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe - East Side Gallery - Museum Island - Berlin Cathedral - Pergamonmuseum - Checkpoint Charlie - Berliner Fernsehturm Safety: Berlin is one of the safest cities in the world. Almost everyone speaks English. Recommendations: Berlin is a very cool place. If you love history, you will love it.
Stay: Stayed at the Ibis and it was fine. Things to do - Alexanderplaz/World Clock (square) - Spree (river), museum island and Berlin Cathedral/Berliner Dom - Kreuzberg and museum - Checkpoint Charlie (Cold war symbol, can walk around and see the wall) - Potsdamer Platz - The Jewish Memorial (About 40 mins and 3 euros for audio guide) - Brandenburg Gate (Tor) (get there via Under the linden trees boulevard) - The Reichstag (Parliament, can enter for free and have a nice view) - Gendarmenmarkt - Eastside gallery (Berlin wall) - Charlottenburg Castle (I actually really enjoyed this) - TV tower (honestly waste of money)
Itinerary: Super cool and alive city 🏙 many museums and many nice people. A perfect mix of city and nature. Things to do: Big tip: rent a boat and drive to the small müggelsee! Super beautiful place to swim and relax. Full of nature. And a beach where you can easily swim to. Food: Indian food In Kreuzberg is too good to be true! And try the Waffel ice cream shop in Kreuzberg. Safety: Do not go to Alexanderplatz by night. Many strange guys there. Budget: I live at my sisters place so I don’t pay for my accommodation. And I did not spend as much for the activities as in my hometown. So I guess it’s fair.
Modern history wise there are so many museums that are super interesting to go to: Topography of Terror, Checkpoint Charlie Museum, The Jewish Museum, Berlin Story Bunker, there’s plenty more but these are the ones I visited. They can be quite hard-hitting and overwhelming but definitely worth visiting! I’d also recommend the area of Bergmannkiez for food, there’s both cute restaurants and market stalls around the area - we went to a restaurant called ‘Good Morning Vietnam Vegan’ and it’s one of the best dinners I’ve ever had.
Itinerary: I have been to Berlin many times and have seen a lot of things including the German parliament, various nightclubs and visited various museums Budget: Berlin is cheap enough Accommodation: I stayed in my friends house
