Activities in Berlin

However long you plan to stay in Berlin it won't be enough - but rest assured, you won't be bored.

Pergamon MuseumIf you feel reflective you can wander for hours through vast museum collections of antiquities in the Pergamon Museum, marvel at the ingenious methods used for attempted escapes across the Wall documented in the Checkpoint Charlie Museum, relish the sumptuous decor of the 18th and 19th Century palaces of the Hohenzollern dynasty in Charlottenburg and Potsdam, or simply gaze spellbound at paintings by Durer, Cranach, Ernst, Klee and so many others displayed at the Gemäldegalerie or the New National Gallery, designed by Mies van der Rohe, and many other public and private galleries.

Too strenuous? Try people watching from one of the pavement cafes on Ku'damm, in Prenzlauer Berg or Schönberg with a vast cup of Milchkaffee in front of you, watching Berlin's colourful streetlife unfold before your eyes.

Getting late? You might want to escape the bustle for an intimate meal in a dark Berliner cellar restaurant, surrounded by daguerreotypes from the last century, or enjoy the huge variety of international cuisine - Thai, Spanish, Indian, Chinese, Italian, Indonesian....if you want it, they've got it - offered by this global city.

US and UK visitors should note that there isn't a German expression for "Last orders" or "Last call" - the bars stay open as long as they want to, and if still you're feeling lively past midnight there's probably a nightclub with your taste in cabaret, or music you want to dance to, just round the corner.

Don't forget, we're here to smooth out the glitches - to help you find what you want, book your boat trip, fix you up with a museum guide or give you an insider's tour round the night spots.

All this, and much more. There aren't enough days in the week.

If you'd like us to reserve tickets for a particular event or show, or help you find what you're looking for, you only have to let us know. Choose the entertainment you are interested in the travel request form.
