Berlin was once the proud symbol of the greatness' of Germany, then it became the symbol of the greatness' of Eastern Germany, now it has been reinstated as the capital of Germany and it deserves this status, since it is a fascinating city to visit and experience. Somehow it still has a different feel to it and there is an air of the eastern influences which have helped shape Berlin. Yet it is also a very vibrant city which is very much alive and embracing the future. Like so many other parts of Germany, the public transport system in Berlin is exceptionally good and of course, very efficient and everything does run on time! The system is also very comprehensive, there is an urban railway system, the S Bahn as well as an underground, U-Bahn system. In addition there are various trams and buses, all of which you can use with just one ticket, so you don't have to keep worrying about buying new tickets. Given the size of Berlin, it is home for almost five million residents, you will need to use public transport to get around, since it is just too big to manage on foot.
Berlin has a relatively mild climate, with temperatures which do drop just below freezing in winter, but not too far below zero, whilst in the summer, the average temperature is just below 20 celsuis, which makes it an ideal place to visit all year round. There is plenty to interest everyone in Berlin. This has been an exciting and vibrant spot for years and whilst some of this energy and Zeitgeist' was undoubtedly repressed during the Communist years, Berlin has once again, risen from the ashes and is simply buzzing with things to do. First of all the nightlife in Berlin has to be mentioned. This is the scene for some seriously diverse nightlife and if you are into mainstream arts, culture, music or dance, or anything non- mainstream, or anything which is underground or even pretty far out, then you will more than likely find it happening within the Berlin night scene. In addition to this, whenever you visit Berlin, you are likely to find some kind of festival going on, since they take place so regularly and cater for all kinds of tastes. So whatever you do during the day, make sure that you reserve some energy for the evening. Daytime attractions are also very varied. There are a total of 153 museums located in Berlin, so again, all interests and tastes are catered for. You will also find that there are a number of art galleries and some creative studios, where some cutting edge art and artworks are displayed. The architecture in Berlin is also amazing, with its remnants of the Communist regime and earlier buildings, still very much in evidence. The Brandenburg gate is one of the most well recognised images of Berlin and you should make sure that you include this in your itinerary. Cafe culture is also very strong in Berlin, so make a little time available, just to stop and take in some Kaffee und Kuchen (coffee and cakes) and of course, just soak up the atmosphere. Flights to Berlin are operated by many airlines. These include, Air Berlin, Lufthansa, British Airways and Easyjet.
