Berlin is a city bursting at the seams with historical sights from its tempestuous past. From the Berlin wall which can be seen in its longest form left here to the original Checkpoint Charlie, you really do feel like you are a part of events that changed the world. If however you aren't a history buff, check out views of Berlin from the TV Tower or head to Kurfürstendamm for some high end window shopping.
- Don't Miss The Deutscher Bundestag (The Reichstag). On top of the historic building a huge modern glass dome has been built which you can walk around whilst looking over the sites of the city for free.
- Hungry? Try Aposto for a cosy Italian meal for two, or enjoy fast food with substance and try the German specialty Currywurst from a food stand.
- Nightlife You can find traditional beer anywhere you go in Berlin, however if like me you are partial to a cocktail or two then try the Raddison Blu Hotel Bar. It's not cheap but it's the only place you get to admire the AquaDom, the world's largest cylindrical aquarium which apparently has one million liters of seawater, and plenty of tropical fish. A few cosmopolitans and you might just turn into one yourself.
