Here are Three Things You Should Definitely Do While in Berlin.

The city of Berlin is known to many as the last stand of the Third Reich during World War 2. It was a city that was engulfed in a lot of conflict, and controversy but has now progressed and moved past its history, without forgetting it of course. This rich and diverse city is also the capital of Germany, and being that capital and being the source of a ton of history, it has gotten s reputation as one of the most confusing cities to visit. As people would often find themselves lost or stuck in one place throughout days because of how big the city is. 

So to help cope with that, we made a very short list of the top three things you should definitely do while you’re staying in Berlin! This will help you from getting lost or stuck and on the move to find the best that Berlin has to offer; starting with! 

The Brandenburg Gate. 

From its name itself, the Brandenburg Gate is a gate that separated East and West Berlin. And it’s pretty huge for a gate if I do say so myself. It’s been around since the 18th century and absolutely the first thing you have to visit while staying in Germany. It’s also one of the simplest and fastest places to go to! It is a historical spot that will make you appreciate just how far the city has gone from its past, how beautiful it is at its present, and the potential this uber-cool city has for the future! 

So while you’re in town, try to drop by and snap a few pictures to show off to your friends. Trust me, it’s a lot bigger than what you see in the pictures which makes it even more worth it to see the gate in person! 

Art in Museum Island. 

That is correct, there is a place in Berlin dedicated to just museums, and it is absolutely gorgeous! It is a great way to spend a day, appreciating all of the local art as well as international pieces placed among the different museums. It is an island where you really must visit and spend a day in, in order to really take the scope of it all. To get there, you’ll need to buy a 3-day museum pass and is a must if you really want to see the best that the island has to offer. 

Museums in this place include the Pergamon Museum which is the most visited museum in Europe, the Bode museum where sculptures and Byzantine art is the spectacle, Neues museum if you’re into Egyptian Art, Altes museum for all of those fans of the Greek and Roman art, and Alte Nationalgalerie which is a Natural Art Gallery with Neoclassical, Romantic and early Modernist artwork. And these are just a few of the museums there! 

The Park Inn Hotel. 

Now, if you’re a thrill-seeker, then heading to the Park Inn Hotel is definitely the place for you to go. And even if you aren’t one, this is still a great hotel to go to, especially thanks to the one activity that you won’t be able to do anywhere else. I’m talking about jumping from the top of the Park Inn Hotel roof. 

Yes, for a small price, you can jump the roof of the hotel and do what they call, base flying. It’s an extremely fun activity that should get anybody interested and excited to go really! So if you’re around, then this is one stop you definitely shouldn’t miss. 

Conclusion. 

Now, although we didn’t cover a lot of what you can really do in the city, these three are just some of the ones that you cannot miss at all. It is a great way to experience the uniqueness of the city, and see just how beautiful it is whether it be because of its architecture, art, or even activities. Berlin is a huge place with lots to do, so here are just a few of those things you and places to visit to enjoy the city in its fullest!
