Berlin is packed with 175 museums! There are five outstanding ones on Museum Island that house treasures from the Stone Age to the 19th century. Plus, there are more than ten museums in the city which are free of cost, not to mention certain days when even ticketed museums waive their entry fee.
There are more than 2,500 parks and gardens in Berlin. Tiergarten is by far the most popular park among Berliners. One of the largest city parks in the world, it has its own zoo, beer garden and café. It’s a great place for a picnic and the perfect break after hectic sightseeing!
Kurfürstendamm, or Ku’damm, as it’s affectionately called, is the city’s shopping district. You’ll get just about everything here, be it designer stores or fashion outlets. This is where KaDeWe (Kaufhaus des Westens), Europe’s second-largest department store, is located.
Discover new tastes the fun way at Berlin’s street food markets. You can enjoy all kinds of food from all over the world, besides typical German specialties. Bite Club, Thai Park and Markthalle Neun are popular markets. If you get a craving for Indian food, try Chai Wallahs’ chicken tikka naanwich. It’s wunderbar!
