The Only Way to Explore Berlin
Berlin is a massive city, with a variety of world famous sites for travellers to explore. You have sights such as Reichstag, Charlottenburg Palace, Brandenburg Gate, and loads more. You can have an amazing time here, going on bus rides, cruises, and guided tours to get an idea of what Berlin is all about. Read on to learn more:
Many people will tell you that Berlin is one of the coolest and most intriguing cities in the whole world. There are many places to be discovered in the capital of Germany, but you must travel all over the huge city to see them all. Once you’ve booked your Berlin accommodation here, you might consider buying a Berlin welcome card, which will give you free access to public transport in Berlin, making your journey less stressful and much cheaper. You may even find yourself getting a reduced entrance fee to more than 150 of the attractions (yes, you read that right); city tours, museums, cruises, and loads more. It’s definitely worth the price for the amount of money you’ll save!
On your first trip in this wonderful place, I recommend taking a bus trip through the city. It’s simple, yet effective! You’re able to sit down and look at interesting places like Museums Island, the Friedrichstrasse, the Kurfurstendamm, and Potsdamer Platz. If you purchase a ticket that allows you to hop on and off the bus, you can stop anywhere you like on the trip!
If you think even further ahead, and book your tickets online, you can see places like Charlottenburg Palace without waiting in the long, boring line. I highly recommend you visit this place; it was a present from Friedrich III for his wife Charlotte, built in 1699. The palace is filled with huge rooms, and even bigger art collections. You’ll love viewing the baroque garden - It’s spectacular!
Something else you might quite enjoy, is the GDR Museum. This is Berlin’s most interactive museum, so definitely worth a look.
Once you’ve done that, why not take a cruise on the Spree to see even more amazing sights? Seeing Berlin from the water feels awfully relaxing and serene, but you’ll get to see the Nikolai quarter, the Berliner Dom, and the Museums Island whilst aboard.
A walk through the government district shouldn’t be missed either. A helpful tour guide will give you information on everything you could possibly want to know, including the history and function of the district. Once you’ve finished enjoying the most important place of German politics, you could visit Madame Tussaud’s - a chance to look at waxworks of famous celebs from the past and present.
These are just some of the best things I think are in Berlin - you might find your own favourite sites and activities. Whatever you decide to do, don’t forget to save money by buying a Berlin Welcome Card, and take the Spree Cruise if nothing else. I promise you’ll have a fantastic time!
