Berlin is the capital of Germany and a treasure trove of museums, art galleries, churches and alluring war-time relics. Culturally, it is one of the most significant cities in Europe after Paris and London. As such, Berlin holidays are a must if you want a taste of classic Europe. The best time to visit Berlin is May through September, when the weather is not too hot nor too cold. It's the ideal time to cozy up with a Jane Austen novel at a café or to take a stroll at one of the numerous parks or to check out the latest exhibition.
If you are a traveller, there are plenty of cheap accommodations to choose from: budget hotels, self-catering apartments and bed and breakfast options. There are a lot of things to see and do in the city. Spend some time admiring the artefacts of Europe and her colonies in the museums of Berlin. Of all the museums, the Neues Museum is the best. The National Gallery houses works of some of the greatest artists in the 20th century, while the Jewish Museum is an interactive one, reminding us about the horrors of Holocaust. Berliner Dome, a Protestant cathedral, is a breathtaking example of baroque architecture. Other notable sites include the majestic Brandenburg Gate, the historic Berlin Wall monument and the war-time Charlie Checkpoint. Finally, holidays to Berlin are incomplete without a visit to its famous beer bars and nightclubs, from big nights out at Boo Hoo and Berries to its chic Sky Bars.
