Summer is definitely the best season to visit Berlin. The city’s local take advantage of the presentable weather. It lets you take part to endless events across the city.
Billy Connolly: there’s no such thing as a bad time to visit Berlin, just bring the right clothing
Since the fall of its world-famed Wall, Berlin has involved itself with becoming one of the most creative and cultural centres in Europe. These days it’s a city of many faces, old and modern architecture fuse together. Berlin is known as a city that never sleeps (parties here can go on for days rather than hours). As well it’s a magnet for history buffs (the city was at the heart of the turbulent 20th century) and, increasingly, as a destination for families thanks to a wealth of green spaces that includes the sprawling Tiergarten, the Sunday flea market at Mauerpark and the Volkspark Friedrichshain.
The city’s main cultural and historical sights – from the Museum Island and the Reichstag to Checkpoint Charlie and the Jewish Museum – are to be found in central Mitte. Don’t forget to visit the neighbourhoods Prenzlauer Berg, Friedrichshain, Kreuzberg, Neukölln and Schöneberg. These places are worth exploring for their slew of independent bars, restaurants and clubs, as well as their edgy art spaces and lesser-known museums.
One of my most favourite place in Berlin is the Badeschiff (Treptow), Sipping cocktails in the hammock, warm sand under your feet and relaxed sounds from a local DJ? At Badeschiff Treptow no problem! The swimming pool invites for a cool down. You can lie on the dock or in the sand and let your mind wander. Enjoy the the sun and feel like on the beach.
