While establishing itself as a center of modern culture, Berlin boasts an impressive depth of history and leaves guests with a wonderfully hard question to answer: which of the 420 art galleries, 153 museums and 50 theaters do I visit first?
Consider heading from your hotel in Berlin to the premier museum complex on Spree River: Museum Island, home to the Old and the New Museums, Old National Gallery, Bode Museum and the Pergamon. You can see the Bust of Nerfertiti, the Pergamon Altar and the Ishtar Gate without stepping foot outside Berlin.
Our hotel’s guests should also tour the Zoologischer Garten, the world's biggest zoo, and the Botanischer Garten, one of the largest gardens in the world. For history, be sure to visit the Brandenburg Gate or Checkpoint Charlie, both backdrops to some of the most gripping events in Berlin's history.
Before heading back to your Berlin hotel, enjoy window shopping in the up-scale district on the Kurfurstendamm and peek into Europe's largest department store, the KaDeWe. On your way, pick up some of Berlin's most popular “fast food”: currywurst, sausage seasoned with curry ketchup.
Whether you're drawn to art, nature, or history, you can find it in Berlin.
