Germany for the weekend? Why not? It’s close and really attractive. Or maybe, thanks to your work in Germany, you already know a little about this beautiful country? Today we take you to Berlin for a while.

Did you know that Berlin is the largest city in the European Union in terms of population? This modern city that “does not fall asleep” is a straightforward dream destination for nightlife enthusiasts. Here you will find many trendy and world-famous restaurants, bars and clubs.

East Side Gallery – the world’s largest outdoor picture gallery

Fans of culture and art will not be disappointed – Berlin has almost 200 museums (with collections of ancient, Byzantine and modern art). One must see the Berlin Cathedral, whose Baroque architecture is breathtaking. Not far from the East Station is the East Side Gallery, known as a “monument to freedom,” created by artists from around the world on a section of the Berlin Wall. The gallery currently houses more than 100 paintings. The first works were created by Christine Mac Lean in December 1989 (just after the Wall fell). Kasra Alavi, Kani Alavi, Jim Avignon, Thierry Noir, Ingeborg Blumenthal, Ignasi Blanch and Gisbert and others followed soon after, creating what is probably the world’s largest outdoor painting gallery.

Berlin from the observation deck

Or perhaps you would like to see Berlin from the perspective of an observation deck? On Alexadnerplazt, there is a television tower from which you can enjoy a panoramic view of the city.

Reichstag, opera houses and theaters

History buffs will certainly want to visit the Reichstag, the German parliament, where some of the most important events of the last century took place.

Berlin’s theaters and opera houses are a treat for music lovers. Notable among them is the Staatsoper Unter den Linden, the oldest opera theater of the three in Berlin, located on Unter den Linden, the city’s main historic street.

Berlin Zoo

Hospitable Berlin has not forgotten about fauna lovers. Berlin Zoo is one of the most visited zoos in Europe, with nearly 2.6 million visitors a year from all over the world. It is open all year round, located in a convenient place where Berlin public transportation is easy to get to. Visitors can enter the zoo through the exotically decorated Elephant Gate, located near the Aquarium on Budapester Straße (Budapest Street), or through the Lion Gate on Hardenbergplatz.

Relax among the greenery

After an eventful day, locals and tourists alike like to relax among the greenery, pleasing their eyes with the exceptionally beautiful parks and gardens, of which there are as many as twelve in Berlin! If you like familiar and exotic plants, be sure to visit the botanical garden in the Steglitz district, which is one of the largest and most diverse botanical gardens in the world. On an area of 43 hectares you can admire more than 22,000 species of plants – the most noteworthy of which is the covered building dedicated to tropical plants. The tall structure, built in the late 19th century, is still one of the world’s largest glass and steel structures.

It is impossible to list all the attractions of this interesting city. One thing is certain – everyone will find something interesting here. In Berlin you simply can not get bored!
