11 Things to Do in Berlin

Ideas for activities and outings for the perfect stay in Berlin, without claiming to be exhaustive
Berlin TV Tower
1

Enjoy the view from the TV Tower

The Berlin TV Tower at 368 m is the highest building in Germany and is worth visiting for the fantastic panorama of the federal capital. During the day, the rotating Sphere restaurant in the TV tower serves burgers and salads, and in the evening, grilled dishes, making it worth visiting even when hungry. In the unique atmosphere of the viewing platform, you can get an overview of the city of Berlin, which is why a trip to the TV tower is worthwhile at the beginning of a Berlin stay.
Reichstag building
2

Visit the Reichstag

Only since 1999, discussions and decisions about the legislation of the German state have resumed in the old Reichstag building - following the disastrous Reichstag fire of 1933, the building had been too dilapidated for this purpose. Guided tours do not include visiting the modern glass dome, but it can be explored independently.
Checkpoint Charlie
3

Discover Berlin's historical hotspots

Few German cities have undergone as many contemporary historical changes as the federal capital. From the center of Prussian rule through the time of the Third Reich and the division of the city with subsequent reunification, there is much to see, hear, and learn. A good starting point is, for example, a visit to Checkpoint Charlie and the Wall Museum, but the Berlin-Hohenschönhausen Memorial and the Topography of Terror also provide deep insights into the history of Berlin and Germany.
Brandenburg Gate
4

Take a picture in front of the Brandenburg Gate

Once the old Berlin was surrounded by 18 city gates, the Brandenburg Gate is the last one remaining. As a great backdrop for holiday photos, it attracts tourists from all over the world every day and is one of the central attractions in Berlin-Mitte.

Get active indoors or outdoors!

Live escape rooms, laser tag, blacklight mini-golf, or scavenger hunts: For those who find museum visits and city tours too passive, Berlin also offers activities that challenge your own abilities.

Get to know Berlin during an extraordinary city tour

The range of special guided tours and city tours through Berlin is huge and covers various areas of interest, whether Jewish Berlin or Gay-Culture-Tour, Trabi or VW-Bus, Kreuzberg or Mitte. As a first activity in Berlin, it makes sense to benefit from the knowledge and experience of competent guides. Particularly action-packed are the Hot-Rod-City-Tours, where you drive through the city in a miniature vehicle. Classic Hop-on-Hop-Off-Tours along the main sights are also offered.
East Side Gallery

Visit the East Side Gallery

The 1.3 km long remaining section of the Berlin Wall decorated with murals combines street art with historical symbolism: since 1990, artists have been able to pay tribute to the changes surrounding the fall of the Wall and the end of the Iron Curtain.

Slow down on the Island of Youth

Opposite the Treptower Park is the Island of Youth in the middle of the Spree. Locals especially appreciate this picturesque place for finding some peace in between. On the island is the Cultural House of Island Berlin with cultural events such as open-air cinema, poetry slam, and concerts, as well as a beer garden. Far away from beaten paths, a visit to the Island of Youth offers a contrast to the hustle and bustle of Berlin-Mitte.

7 activities for families in Berlin

As a change of pace for families after all the history and art, there are also countless family-friendly attractions in Berlin. Some are more crowded, such as Madame Tussauds® or Legoland Discovery Centre®, while others are more relaxed, like the Pinke-Panke Children's Farm.

The classic: a zoo visit. But where?

Don't be confused: Berlin has two different zoos: Since 1954, the Tierpark Berlin in the former East Berlin has opened its doors to guests. Animals from 800 different species live on a huge area of 160 hectares. The much smaller Zoologischer Garten Berlin (Berlin Zoo), with 33 hectares, houses 1,400 species and is, with its foundation year of 1844, the oldest zoo in Germany.
SEA LIFE Berlin

Admire the impressive AquaDom and SEA LIFE Berlin aquarium

Visit a farm in the heart of the metropolis

Away from the tourist crowds, the Pinke-Panke Children's Farm has existed in Berlin-Pankow for 25 years: Workshops for schoolchildren such as cooking and crafts are offered here. In addition, farm animals such as sheep and donkeys can be petted. This is a relaxing alternative to Berlin's zoos and a great experience for children.
Madame Tussauds Berlin

Take pictures with the stars at Madame Tussauds® Berlin

The wax museum is once again a popular attraction visited by many people, where life-like representations of music icons like Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, and David Bowie or celebrities like Angela Merkel, Barack Obama, or Heidi Klum can be selfie-taken. The Star Wars® section also represents a special highlight for small and large fans of the science fiction film series.
Legoland Discovery Centre
5

Build with Lego® bricks at Legoland Discovery Centre®

A world full of Lego® bricks, which represents more or less a shrunken Legoland® in the basement: In addition to rides and Lego® models, the Legoland Discovery Centre® Berlin also has a Lego® factory to marvel at. The attraction offers a colorful experience in Berlin for big and small children and is perfect as a family activity in Berlin.

As a symbol of Berlin, the Brandenburg Gate is the last surviving gate of the original 18 city gates and an absolute must-see for visitors to the city!

Extremely popular is the Berlin TV Tower: Germany's tallest building at 368 meters, it features a revolving restaurant and an observation deck from which you can experience a panoramic view of the entire city of Berlin.

Berlin Cathedral

The Berlin Cathedral, built at the beginning of the 20th century according to the principles of Neo-Baroque and Neo-Renaissance on the Museum Island, is one of the most important burial sites of European nobility and also the largest Protestant church in Germany in terms of area, which is why it is considered one of the most important sights in Berlin.
Berlin Wall

Berlin Wall

The time of German division is nowhere else so clearly recalled for visitors as in Berlin: for 28 years, around 160 kilometers of the border system ran through the divided city. At the Berlin Wall Memorial, a 70-meter-long section of the border system is preserved, and the names of the Wall victims are duly honored.
Museum Island
10

Museum Island

One of the most important museum complexes in all of Europe can be found on Museum Island in the Spree River in Berlin: a total of five museums invite visitors to walk and stroll between the buildings. While the Old Museum and New Museum exhibit ancient artifacts of the Romans and Greeks as well as Egyptians, the collection of the Bode Museum deals with Byzantine art. The Pergamon Museum also displays ancient art from ancient Rome to Western Asia, while the Old National Gallery houses 19th-century artworks. Online tickets which include entry to multiple museums are offered.

4 Historical Places in Berlin-Mitte

In the center of Berlin, there are countless attractions that tell their part of the history of Germany and Europe.

Holocaust Memorial

Next to the Brandenburg Gate is the stelae field of the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe. It is one of the most poignant such memorials and it is worth pausing here. Unfortunately, due to the behavior of some visitors to the memorial, it must be pointed out that the significance of the memorial should be respected during a visit. This is not the place to engage in sports activities or thoughtlessly post selfies on the internet.

Checkpoint Charlie

The former border crossing between East and West Berlin has been preserved as a monument and has become a popular photo opportunity for tourists. However, the guardhouse is a reconstruction and the soldiers are actors in costumes. Nevertheless, the site provides a good impression of what the checkpoint looked like.

Wall Museum

Right next to Checkpoint Charlie is the Wall Museum (Museum Haus am Checkpoint Charlie). Here you can find more historical context information about the inner German border in the four-sector city of Berlin and escape vehicles for leaving the GDR as well as political art.
