Berlin is a great city for many reasons – it’s got lots of stories to tell, the people are friendly, and it’s got one Europe’s best city-centre parks with the Tiergarten. It’s also the perfect place to soak up culture in the museums. To make things easy for us travellers, all the main ones are found on the appropriately titled Museumsinsel, meaning ‘Museum Island’ in English.
If you’re reading this and you’re thinking of going to Berlin but museums aren’t your thing, I think you should still visit the Altes Museum. Not to go to the museum itself, but to laze in the sunshine like the people here in this photo I took when I was there. You’ll be among both tourists and locals, making it a great place to people watch.
