Not so long ago, Berlin was described the following way by one of its inhabitants: „not wealthy, but sexy“.
Today, the German capital is a melting pot of different cultures and religions, which give it its unique charm and liveliness. A widespread offer of gastronomy and culture, a lot of historic or spectular sights or the sheer never ending nightlife – there is nothing that Berlin can’t offer.
Berlin is well known for its many museums. One of them, the Jewish museum built by Daniel Libeskind, is especially worth a visit, not only because of its modern architecture but also because of its modern interactive exhibitions.
Berlin Central Station (German: Berlin Hauptbahnhof), the biggest tower station in Europe, is not only the city’s most important train center, but also an interesting sight itself because of its marvellous architecture dominated by a light galss dome.
But that is not the only glass dome Berlin is known for. More known is the dome of the German Government Building (German: Reichstag), where the German government, the Bundestag, is seated since 1990. Already 18 million people have visited the Reichstag to follow hot debates from the glass dome. This makes the Reichstag one of the most visited sights in Berlin.
But of course does Berlin not only consist of history, politics and culture. The Kurfürstendamm, the main shopping street of Berlin, is a shopping paradise of 3,5 kilometers length. In 2011, it had its 125th anniversary. Malls, fashion stores, coffee shops as well as restaurants provide the perfect basis for a vast shopping trip.
