    Lovely historical city.

    Berlin is def an alternative city. Really empty city if you think about it but it has so much history. Honestly, if you're into history and learning about the war, you should def check out Berlin. Besides that, theres not much going for Berlin. It's doable in 2-3 days max.

    This city was awesome. Filled with so much history it makes you think of the current events we are living. Many people speak English so it's easy to get around for us English speakers.

    Insider Tip:It's sometimes faster to walk to locations.

    Berlin is a beautifully modern city with an ideological past. The city was destroyed in WWII and is making its way back to fame with graffiti art, contemporary architecture, and insane partying. Definitely recommended for any one with an artsy, edgy, alternative, or open-minded personality. I would go back to Berlin again and again and again if I could.

    Insider Tip:The Fat Tire bike tours are an AWESOME way to see the city and learn a bit more about German history.

    Nice, cheap city

    Berlin is a good destination for a weekend trip from Poland. It's cheap and nice place to hang out and a good destination for shopping.

Germany: Itinerary
