It would be an understatement to say Berlin has “plenty to see and do”; this city rewards even the casual wanderer with a plethora of incredible buildings and monuments. Facing the iconic Brandenburg Gate with the Victory Column behind you, you only have to turn right to see Lord Norman Foster’s magnificent glass-dome atop the Reichstag, whilst further along lies the sobering and haunting Holocaust memorial. Turning around takes you down historical Unter den Linden and if you walk the other way you can get lost in the leafy green acres of Tiergarten. Head-spinning yet? Thought so.
The best sightseeing in Berlin is well planned. Book your tickets for the Reichstag in advance, plan your walk around Checkpoint Charlie in advance and make a list of ‘must sees’ and opening hours to really maximise your time and take it all in. Don’t worry if you don’t have the time to see everything. Berlin isn’t going anywhere, and with a history as diverse as this spanning over ten centuries, it is well worth a second, or even third visit.
