Berlin History & Culture
Rebuilt, reunited and reinvented several times, there is no shortage of history here. From the fall of the Berlin wall, to the underground movements leading up to it, you will find many interesting things to learn about this historically dynamic city.
Berlin combines the culture of New York, the traffic system of Tokyo, the nature of Seattle, and the historical treasures of, well, Berlin. Hiroshi Motomura
Rich with diversity and a creative atmosphere present-day Berlin is said to be like New York was in the 1980s. Berlin is still affordable and full of young artists, musicians, and creative-types. With a number of large parks connected by tree-lined streets Berlin is not only visually green but in accordance with one of the leading environmentally conscious countries in the world, it is environmentally green as well. Riding the high-quality light-rail, above ground and below ground train system, or simply a bike is the preferred method of transportation for most Berliners.
How does spending your summer leisure time relaxing in a German Biergarten, Barbequing in one of the many inviting Berlin parks, or partying on a rooftop terrace sound? Summer time in Berlin is like nowhere else on the planet. Within a matter of days the city explodes in green revealing trees and parks hidden during winter.
