The centre of German history and culture, Berlin is an incredible city to visit. Whether you’re looking to be inspired by art, or humbled by history, the city has a lot to offer. For example: though the majority of it has been torn down, a stretch of the Berlin Wall still stands as a monument to the city’s history during the Cold War, and can be walked along by tourists.
Running further back in 20th century history is the Judisches Museum and the Holocaust Memorial, a humbling tribute to the people lost in World War II. By all accounts, it’s an experience not soon forgotten.
Often overlooked is Berlin’s status as a European cultural capital, producing some of the best opera and theatre in the world. While the majority of it is spoken or sung in languages other than English, most productions will feature performances with English surtitles, making stories easy to follow.
Lastly, be sure to check out the Berlin Zoo, a menagerie with a slew of rare and endangered creatures, widely considered one of the best zoos in Europe!
