A trip to the second most populous city in the European Union is sure to be filled with loads of activities. Be it the city’s overall glamor, dazzling architecture, vibrant culture, albeit sardonic history, or the intoxicating beer, there is surely something in the city that would appeal to you. Here, we take a look at some interesting places to visit in the City of Berlin.


Brandenburg Gate
Your first point of call is one of the most photographed sites in Berlin.
The Brandenburger Tor is an imitation of the Acropolis entrance in Athens. Its location also plays a great role in its popularity as it is located in what is arguably Berlin’s most famous parks, the Pariser Platz.
Built in the late 18th Century for King Wilhelm II, the gate is now one of the most iconic locations in Berlin, thanks in no small part to the Cold War. The gate bordered East and West Berlin and was seen as a no man’s land during that period. Now, it is more of a symbol of unity, bearing witness to all the brutality that occurred during the war.

Museumsinsel (Museum Island)
The Museum Island is made up of five museums, representing different aspects of German history and culture. They include The Bode Museum, The Pergamon Museum, Neues Museum, The Altes Museum, and The Alte Nationalgalerie. All the museums on the Island are UNESCO certified World Heritage Sites. Asides the museums, the island also boasts a Baroque-style Berliner Dom Cathedral as well as lovely gardens making it the complete tourist heaven.

The AquaDom and Sea LifeIf you have some time left after touring the Museum Island, take a stop at The AquaDom and Sea Life Berlin. Get to see over 5000 species of sea creatures in a habitat as close to their natural homes as possible.

Other interesting sites include Berlin’s Holocaust Memorial (Memorial to the murdered Jews of Europe), The Potsdamer Platz, The Berlin Dungeon, and The Checkpoint Charlie Museum. To wrap it up, you can go on a Berlin River Cruise to admire the beautiful city and its sights from the serene waters of the River Spree.
The Best Time to Visit The best time to visit any city is almost always relative to the tourist’s preferences.

The boom season for tourism in Berlin is May through September. This period gives you the best experience as the weather is quite warm and ideal for outdoor activities or simply sitting in a café and people watching.
