Berlin - Rebuilt, Reinvigorated and Reviving
If there's one word to describe Berlin, might we suggest... Alive. This cosmopolitan city is bursting with energy and the thrust of new ideas, new architecture, new food, new music and theatre is nothing short of extraordinary. Its people actively search out the untried and the experience for the visitor is one of continual open-mouthed wonder at the ability of the human spirit to reinvent itself.
Berlin is a bustling place of some 3.4 million people set in north eastern Germany and is a centre of politics, culture and education for Germany. The city itself is a magnet for the weekend breaks crowd - riotous nightclubs, quiet bars (and not so quiet ones), music clubs and cutting edge theatre draw people in from all over Europe. It is one of Europe's most liberal cities with a legendary nightlife. If sleep is your thing; Berlin is not going to work for you!
Exploring other parts of the city though is a rewarding experience, especially for romantic weekend breaks. The tumultuous 20th century has made Berlin an architectural grab-bag. From the historic Brandenburg Gate to the gleaming Reichstag; from the memorial sections of the Berlin Wall to the Soviet era apartment blocks in old East Berlin and the entirely-rebuilt Potsdamer Platz, Berlin is a contradiction in style and form.
