Popular Attraction

Berlin is surrounded by idyllic countryside with many lakes for yachtsmen, oarsmen, canoeists and there’s a lot of forest for hiking. The prettiest and liveliest of Berlin’s neighborhoods are Prenzlauer Berg and
Friedrichshain, working-class backwater in recent years.


Photo BTM: © www.berlin-tourist-information.de – Brandenburg Gate

A diverse café and pub scene has sprouted. Berlin’s most splendid boulevard extending for about 1,5 km from the Brandenburg Gate to Schlossplatz. Most tourist attractions are strung out like pearls on
both sides of this broad esplanade providing a broad introduction
to the city’s fascinating past.

Shopping experiences are everywhere, but especially the Ku’damm is Berlin’s premier shopping mile. Animal lovers just have to go to Zoologischer Garten or to Tierpark Friedrichsfelde, which are easy
reach by underground or S-Bahn.
