Berlin, the German capital, is known for its tumultuous history, as well as its historic buildings, museums, and palaces. The city is also renowned for its lively nightlife, with its many cafés, restaurants, clubs, and bars, and has a thriving art scene, with many small and large galleries, as well as street art throughout the city. Berlin's East Side Gallery is a colourful section of the original Berlin Wall, with works by hundreds of artists from all over the world who came to transform the wall into a piece of art after it fell in 1989 – it is now the largest open-air art gallery in the world.
Top sights to see in Berlin include the Brandenburg Gate, the symbol of the division of the city, the Reichstag, the traditional seat of the German Parliament, and the Jewish Museum. Make sure you visit Museum Island, home to the five of the city’s world class museums. You will probably also want to walk down the grand boulevard "Unter den Linden" in the historic heart of the city, stretching from Museum Island to the Brandenburg Gate. The street is lined on both sides by historical statues and important buildings, such as the State Opera, the State Library and the German Museum of History.
Berlin remains a city of distinct neighbourhoods, but at its heart is the Hackescher Markt, an area filled with cafés, trendy shops and galleries. The city also has a green heart, the Tiergarten, which is bordered by the Reichstag and Brandenburg Gate on its eastern side, Potsdamer Platz and the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe on the southeast edge, and Berlin's Zoo and Bellevue Palace, residence of the German President, on the west.
