Too Cool for School
When I first arrived in the city, I wasn't a huge fan. The city has a much colder feel than other European cities and is full of modern architecture since the city was basically rebuilt after WWII. Because it lacked the typical European charms, I wasn't too fond of it at first. However, the longer I stayed, the more I liked it. The city is full of hidden gems. And when I say hidden, I mean walk through multiple corridors to find a hidden bar that isn't advertised anywhere on the street.
Insider Tip:Head to Watergate for a night out. It's one of the best nightclubs in town and is near many others (all located in an old abandoned train station). It's a very cool area and will show you what Berlin nightlife is all about.
