The East Side Gallery is the longest remaining strip of the of the former dividing wall between East and West Berlin. Today the 1.3 kilometer long wall stands as a memorial to freedom and it is covered in art and graffiti. Right now we’re visiting Brandenburg Gate. This gate dates back to the 18th Century. We’re here at Tiergarten, one of the biggest parks in the city. MauerPark is a hipster hangout. If you head over to the Bear Pit you can catch some karaoke and musical performances. If you want to spot some cool street art, then head over to Friedrichshain. You can’t come to Berlin and not eat a Currywurst! This is the city’s most popular fast food snack. The sausage is served with a ketchup and curry powder concoction. Up next we’re at the Reichstag building which has a pretty cool glass dome on top. This dome is actually open to visitors and it offers 360 degree views of the city. Today we’re visiting Tempelhof, a re-purposed airport here in Berlin for leisure activities and sports. If you enjoy museums and art galleries you’ll want to visit Berlin’s Museum Island. They actually have five different museums here and if you get a daily pass for 18 Euros you get access to all five. We are now visiting the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin. It is also known as the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe. Charlottenburg Palace is the largest palace in Berlin and the only surviving royal residence in the city. Checkpoint Charlie was one of the crossing points between East Berlin and West Berlin during the Cold War. Located near Alexanderplatz, The Berlin TV Tower offers a great lookout over the city. Chocolate! Ritter Sport is a chocolate brand that is sold all over Germany, and while in Berlin we couldn’t resist sampling a few of the different varieties. Berlin Cathedral is located on Museum Island and it’s one of the most beautiful churches in the city. If Currywurst is to your liking, you’ll want to check out this quirky museum devoted to Berlin’s favorite sausage. Renting a bike is a great way to get around the city. Most places will rent out bikes at 10 Euros per day. For a leisurely afternoon, hop on a boat and enjoy a tour down the River Spree. Of course, you cannot come to Berlin and not eat a Wurst or a sausage. The Friedrichshain flea market takes place every Sunday and it’s a great place for people watching and a little browsing. The Germans sure know how to enjoy a hearty breakfast, and we recommend you try it too.
We couldn’t resist visiting yet another cat cafe while we were in Berlin.
While in Berlin we enjoyed a hearty meal of Schnitzel. It’s quite easy to get around Berlin using the U-bahn and S-bahn system. In Berlin, there is a big Turkish population and that means there is awesome Turkish street food. And that’s Berlin for you! A city that has risen from the ashes of the war, which is now bursting with art, music, and life.

    Curry worst, so the story goes, was thought up by a British Army NCO after the war because the meat tasted terrible.

  12. Just landed in Berlin this morning. Only been here for a few hours and it's already my favourite city in Europe. My wife and I have been traveling Europe for a couple months now. As soon as we landed in Berlin, it was the most inviting and accepting city we've ever seen. Nice change from Rome, where everyone makes shitty remarks because we have tattoos and people we're trying to rip us off constantly because we're foreigners

  13. Hi, me and my friend are going to Berlin in July and we are wondering if you recommended booking certain things in advance such as the TV tower and museum island. Thanks

  14. Mariana Dovalo

    hey is it true the thing of stamping your passport at checkpoint? i will love doing it but i saw on the internet that invalides the passport… please let me know!

  15. The most important thing about Berlin is that you say "Une guanoille de melanger de kenwood ah her her her her her"

  16. I like Berlin it's like Europes New York in many ways.

  17. Military Madness

    This music is so annoying

  18. Belle, superbe en roue libre hauptstadt. A Berlin, un grand nombre de parents ignorent les reges sur la circulation lorsque leurs enfants sont avec eux, et bon nombe de ces parents sont des fonctionnaires.? En Germany, les jeunes meritent d'etre entoures de fonctionnaires responsables, consciencieux et respectueux des lois; leur avenir en depend. Si nous doublons les amendes routieres dans les captales, nous verrons apparaitre des rues et des adultes respectueux de la loi, ce qu'on attend depuis longtemps a Berlin. L'Organisation Mondiale de la Sante, Bureau de Secutite Routiere, estime que le respect des regles sur la circulation est souhaitable depuis longtemps en Germany. Que pensez-vous?

  19. Lovely, stunning, freewheeling capital city. Did you know, that most of the parents in Berlin ignore traffic laws with their children and that many of these parents are civil servants? Youth in Germany deserve law-abiding, ethical and conscientious civil servants, their future actually depends upon it. Let's double traffic fines in capital cities and watch long overdue, law-abiding streets and adults appear, in Berlin. The World Health Organization, Road Safety Office, feels that law-abiding streets and highways are long overdue, in Germany. What do you think?
