Top 5 things to do in Berlin

Trending in the past 7 days

Neue Nationalgalerie
#1
Neue Nationalgalerie
The Neue Nationalgalerie at the Berlin Kulturforum is a world-class architectural icon from the mind of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886–1969), built to house 20th-century art. A major refurbishment was carried out during the late 2010s to bring the ‘60s-era building up to modern standards. The column-free “universal space” is a classic of modernism and serves as the perfect location for works from European and North American masters like Edvard Munch, Pablo Picasso, Max Ernst, Salvador Dalí, Francis Bacon, and Andy Warhol, amongst many others. Some of the museum’s most famous works are Potsdamer Platz by Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, The Skat Players by Otto Dix, and Who’s Afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue IV by Barnett Newman. A rotating calendar of special exhibitions also takes place in the Neue Nationalgalerie, so keep an eye out for their latest offerings.
Pergamon Museum
#2
Pergamon Museum
The popular Pergamon Museum in Berlin is a great solution to a first world problem; it was built because there wasn't enough room in the nearby Bode Museum for all its artistic and archaeological relics. Construction carried on even through WWI and the great inflation of the 1920s. The then completed Pergamon was also badly damaged at the end of WWII (though fortunately its contents escaped damage).
Neues Museum
#3
Neues Museum
The Neues Museum reopened in 2009, after extensive renovations. Since then, it has attracted more than a million visitors per year. It houses two major collections.
Berlin TV Tower
#4
Berlin TV Tower
Berliner Fernsehturm, also known as the Berlin TV Tower, was constructed in the 60s by the administration of the German Democratic Republic (GDR). Standing at 368 meters-high, it's the tallest structure in Germany and easily visible throughout most of Berlin.
Dalí - The Exhibition at the Potsdamer Platz
#5
Dalí - The Exhibition at the Potsdamer Platz
With over 450 pieces from around the world, 'Dalí - The Exhibition At The Potsdamer Platz' offers a comprehensive look at the brilliant Spanish surrealist. This centrally located permanent exhibition includes drawings, lithographs, etchings, woodcuts, sculptures, illustrated books, graphics documents and more. As the sign outside suggests, a visit here is a trip into the brain of Dalí.

Public transport

Berlin public transport is relatively easy to navigate, with tickets valid across the U-Bahn, S-Bahn, trams and regional trains. The city is quite spread out, so you’ll be glad to have some transport to help get you from A to B. There are no ticket barriers for the metro, with residents and tourists using the honor system, but better not to risk a fine. If you’re planning three or more journeys in one day, a Day Ticket (Tageskarte) is a smart move.

Weather

When the sun shines on Berlin, a walk along the river can make you feel like you’re in the best city on earth. April to June are good months to visit, with the weather generally staying drier than in other parts of Germany. July and August can get quite hot, so if you’re planning lots of walking, try April or leave it till mid September when the crowds are more bearable too. If you’re a festival-buff, there’s always a lot happening in June.

Berlin food & drink

Schnitzels and pretzels and beers, oh my! From steins to Michelin stars, Berlin is a city that provides its hungry patrons anything and everything they desire. But if it’s a hot dog you crave, (and who doesn’t?) you’re in the right place. Check out the currywurst - a dog with a ketchup/curry sauce that’s like no other. Another thing to try is “senfeier,” - hard-boiled eggs with mashed spuds, covered in a creamy mustard sauce. Just as yummy, we promise.

What to do in Berlin for 3 days

Step back in time at the DDR Museum

The former communist state might be different in 2019, but you can see exactly what it was like during those 40 years of DDR rule in this museum, which is also a house. Twice nominated as the European Museum of the Year, this incredible taster of the past lets you rummage through cupboards and drawers, be interrogated by the Stasi, get an insight into life in Socialist Germany, and appreciate your freedom like never before. You’ll even exit through a piece of the Berlin Wall.

Visit the Computer Museum

Ever wanted to try your hand at classics like The Pong-Machine, the Giant Joystick, Donkey Kong, Asteroids and Space Invaders? Of course you have, and you can get as hands-on as you want at Berlin's Computerspielemuseum. Learn the history of games and their creators, tour with Lara Croft, meet Nimrod, witness working originals and say wow at over 300 games and computer-related items. The famous PainStation gives electric shocks when you mess up. Go on, I know you’re curious!

Explore Museum Island

This UNESCO-listed World Heritage site in the middle of the Spree boasts some of Berlin’s most important museums, including the Neues Museum, proud home of an Ancient Egyptian bust of Nefertiti, and also the Pergamonmuseum, one of the world’s most important and impressive archaeological collections. The other half of Museum Island has a swimming pool, library and other everyday treasures. Make like a real Berliner and spend the day taking in the sights here in this central spot.

See the Berlin Wall

Demolished to the sounds of joy between June and November 1990, the Berlin Wall stood for a lot before it was knocked down. You can learn all about it on a restored stretch, which spans the southern border of Wedding and Mitte. At Checkpoint Charlie you’ll see what east-west border control was like during the Cold War - if you can picture it around the tourists. For more, walk along the Spree to the one-mile stretch known as the East Side Gallery.
