Top attractions in Berlin
The history of Berlin is fascinating. You'll probably want to see the Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag building, and Checkpoint Charlie, the famous Berlin Wall crossing point (there is also a good history museum there). If you'd like to know more about the Second World War, the Sachsenhausen concentration camp is in Oranienburg, about an hour out of Berlin, and is open to the public as a museum. If you're into classical music, check out the Deutsche Oper, Staatsoper, or the Komische Oper to experience some world-class singing. If you're travelling with children, the Berlin Zoo is a great place to visit.
Unlike most of Europe's largest cities, it‘s rather easy to live and travel on a budget in Berlin. The public transport system is easy and effective; check out bvg.de or download the app on your phone to plan your journey around the city. The East is still cheaper than the West, so for shopping, have a look at the shops around Alexanderplatz, or visit one of the many markets in the city. Most of them are only open a day or two a week so Google them beforehand. Don't forget to have currywurst for dinner, it's a Berlin speciality! We recommend walking around neighbourhoods such as Prenzlauer Berg or Krauzberg to find hipster cafés and bars.
