• Berlin Wall: Called the East Side Gallery, in Freidrichshain. Walk along the river and see some of the best murals painted on the Berlin Wall
  • Brandenburg gate: a historic square across from a beautiful garden and very close to the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe

  • Museum Island: intuitively has a ton of museums, you could spend an entire day here. Also home to a market on weekends.
  • Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe: must see, breathtaking memorial to walk through. Also has attached underground “Place of Information” that holds the names of approximately 3 million Jewish Holocaust victims
  • Original Europe Tours
    • Walking tour: definitely a must do on your first day; gives you a better idea of the city. Leaves from the Brandenburg gate at 10:30am everyday and it’s free! 
    • Street Art tour: A modern tour that will take you to the Berlin Wall and other artistic places across Berlin
  • Tiergarten: park adjacent to the Brandenburg Gate that is beautiful to walk around in
  • Checkpoint Charlie: the location of the original division of east and west Berlin

  • Reichstag Building: German Parliament buliding where you can eat lunch on the roof; need about a 2-3 day reservation in advance. My favorite thing I did in Berlin! Also home to the Reichstag dome which gives you a fantastic bird’s eye view of the city

  • Take a bike tour
    • Fat tire bike tours – takes you all around Berlin, advanced bicycling skill is a must to be able to weave in and out of streets and traffic
  • Museum of Terror – supposedly the city’s best museum outlining the atrocities of the Nazis. Emotional, but very informative

  • Berliner Dom – beautiful cathedral by Museum Island, can pay a small sum to climb to the top for the best view

  • Klo – my favorite and wackiest bar in Berlin. Known as the “toilet bowl bar” by locals. Be prepared for bed pans, test tubes, gorilla heads, and flying tables.
