Introduction to Berlin
Berlin is the capital of Germany since west and east Germany united. Berlin is an amazing city where events have taken place that have had a colossal effect around the rest of Europe and of course also in Germany. It has been scarred by war, split in two and reunited, but the Berlin of today is a energetic modern and cultural 24-hour city crammed full of museums, art galleries, quirky hotels and other cultural delights. It has dramatically shaken off its years of oppression, that it has taken on a trendiness which has been compared with 80s New York, making it the perfect city break destination for those in search of both culture and fun and a good place to start your trip in Germany or Europe.
