Cosmopolitan, dynamic, very culturally advanced and full of life. This is how Berlin is shown at this time of year, drawing itself as one of the most attractive and sparkling destinations in Europe. So if you’ve never been to the German city, now is the time to discover spring in Berlin.
We already tell you in Vuela Viajes how to get to know Berlin in four fundamental points. Today I want to offer you some practical recommendations so that you can fully enjoy your Berlin adventure. There are many things that you will have to visit in the city, but it will not be difficult for you to organize yourself to make the most of your time.
Start by taking a walk downtown. It will be a great way to capture the atmosphere of its streets and squares. In addition, you can be in emblematic places for history, such as the famous Berlin Wall or Checkpoint Charlie , one of the access points to go from one Germany to another. The Brandenburg Gate is another of the classics that you cannot miss.
In addition to visiting East Berlin, it is also worth visiting the western part of the city, with its shopping centers and modern architecture. Visit the Reichstag or German Parliament, it is worth it.
Get around town
If you want to know the true essence of the city, it is best to walk from one place to another. It is also interesting to get around by bike . There is a public bicycle rental service available. But Berlin has a good transport network with an efficient subway (U-Bahn) and suburban train (S-Bahn), which connect the entire city, and this one with the airport.
At lunchtime, you will have at your disposal a wide range of restaurants, cafes, food stalls and a long etcetera. To choose, you will only have to let yourself be carried away by your preferences, but I recommend that you try German cuisine . In any of its many restaurants you can taste the most typical Berlin recipes.
